The Best Smartphone award was won by the HTC One, which competed against Apple’s iPhone 5S, the LG G2, Nokia’s Lumia 1020, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
Here’s the judges’ motivation for giving the award to HTC’s 2013 flagship handset:
As we said back in January, it’s too bad that all the awards that the HTC One received didn’t bring higher sales numbers.
Nokia’s Windows-based Lumia 520 received the Best Low Cost Smartphone award. It competed against four other affordable handsets (sub-$150 wholesale price), all running Android: Lenovo A390T, Samsung Galaxy Young, Sony Xperia E, and Xiaomi Hongmi.
