Well that was really easy to guess.
No online poll for fanboys and Microsoft to hijack, like they did on Gizmo and Engadget

Let me guess - all of the red votes are from Android/Sammy haters?

They're the Nokia fanboys upset that their 920 couldn't beat the best phone available. (I might make an exception for the Note 2.)

HTC will continue to fail for cheating the customers two years back, who always making a device that not just easily obsolete, but crap until the sudden death keep happen... Right now consumer has made smart choice to ditch away the HTC

You have to admit. It's pretty funny watching WendayGarett go back and forth on his/her(?) opinion of smartphone manufacturers over the past month. Makes for a good laugh.

Why all the hate on HTC? I already dealt with the Lumia fanboys... I really don't want to ruin Samsung's day of triumph... I LOVE my Sensation. Especially with ICS, it's a great phone. I want the HTC One too. I really think HTC has a winner this year. I guess the S4 and Note3 are going to be winners too. Unless someone can give me a reason other than battery life as to why they instantly hate HTC at the first mention, I'm skipping Samsung this year.

I think it's funny how you all hide behind the dislike button. Instead of confronting me, showing your opinion, and possibly swaying me to believe it, you hide in fear behind the anonymous red dislike button. All your doing is proving I'm right...

I'm a Nokia fan, but i couldn't agree more on the awards... SGS3 was out there for the most part of the year. So congrats samfans

A reasonable Nokia fan.
How refreshing :p

But the S3' win is not just because of the market dominance. Lumia 920 was also in the mix for the award, despite of only two months of availability

I was thinking the same thing! Nice to see someone from the Nokia camp isn't a mindless fanboy! Thank you N-Fanboy. I find your name ironic, by the way! :p

This is where we've taken things too far. Lets celebrate our victory, but lets not become fanboys in doing so. It's fine to point out that Apple didn't get any awards, but we do the same things the Lumia fanboys were towards the top of the page if we call Apple names. Please don't tarnish Samsung's great handset with fanboyism directed to it...

Looks like Phonearena also biased and Apple fan.

The Heading may be like this if Apple won Smartphone and tablet award.
GSMA anounced 2013 mobile awards winners: Best smartphone is iPhone4S and tablet is new iPad.

In the same page phonearena mentioned name of Apple iphone name in the post like this "Eight of the top ten devices activated for enterprise use in Q4 were Apple devices"

You see praveen??? this should be the main story but they dont give a sh******** cuz its not what they wanted. first of all every tech site announces their best sphne of the year what about iPHONEARENA?

I'm sorry, but your an imbecile. "The Heading MAY be like this..." May means it could be that heading, but isn't definite. Besides, if the site posted ANYTHING like your heading, there would be no reason to read the article because it told you what you need to know in a shorter more efficient timeframe. To your second observation, it's easier to say eight of the top ten than it is to list very apple and non apple device out in that small tile.

And just so you know, I'm not an apple fanboy defending an allegedly fanboyish site. I am posting this from my iPad, but this is my school REQUIRED iPad, not my own iPad.

Well, No need to mention sorry, you have all the rights to say anything. By the way i'm not imbecile and i'm sure its you definitely.

Anyways - imbecile is mean word.

what about this heading " For 6th straight year, Apple is most admired company; Verizon tops among telcos ", If it is Samsung / HTC / LG heading may be like this " Fortune magazine released voting results of 3,800 directors - See which smartphone maker taken their attention".
