I am guessing in all probability that they had placed a deadline day or something and the day probably was April 1st or something near. So, its only logical that L1020 isn't mentioned.

Yes it is but HTC did good at build quality adding a premium feel to the phone.

I agree to a degree. I think the 1020 should have gotten best video and maybe innovative... Maybe.

htc one best of the rest..
-screen is best with iphone 5 and get score 8.5 of 10.
-sound and call quality easy go up for best choice.
-sense 5 most beautiful and smooth touch and go up maybe after iphone 5.
-design is unique..build quality is excellent.
-night shot canera is very very great point and movie record then is best among the other.
in overall htc one is king 2013.

Lagging sense 5, I have tried many several ONEs and they have all lagged, the smoothest android phone is right now nexus 4.
Build quality of HTC ONE is absolutely extraordinary (in a good way :)
Screen is worse than Iphones, just look at anandtech and you will find that iphone has a better calibrated screen.
The camera is not that good, iphone 5s has way better camera in every way, maybe except lacking OIS.
Big bezel, if you compare it to LG G2.
HTC ONE is absolutely a great phone, but it certainly is not the best phone out there.
And Xperia Z does not have the best camera, how is it possible that it won.

1st Nothing is wrong with the camera (though the Z1s is better) 2nd It's not best smartphone camera awards, it's overall smartphone, and the One is slightly better overall. It's less fragile, has a better screen, and you can get it with stock android. And those "BoomSound" speakers. they're cool.

HTC One's camera is full of noise. Just check every photo from PA or GSMA. Z's cam is better than One's but it has that thing that i called Purple Dream.

What you been "Smokin",,, the article says HTC won the best "video camera" award...
Z's cam is better than One's but it has that thing that you called Purple Dream. Or is that "Purple Haze"? Hehe

"Phone of the year went to the HTC One. The Taiwan based manufacturer's Android flagship also won Best Video Camera on a phone, and Best Design."
Purple Dream is like that purple lines that usually form in sharp details.

man go and experience the quality of phones only then you have the right to talk about such great quality phones .

I HAVE. My coworkers have them and i borrow them all the time to compare them with my S4 and honestly they're good quality phones especially the design but about the hardware and software... Sony Xperia Z uses the same sensor as S4 but due to horrible algorythm, it takes poorer photos.

The HTC One's camera award was for best VIDEO camera, for taking VIDEOS. They said that the best camera (for photos) went to the Z1. The One also won for best design and overall, best phone.

Stereo speakers. One of the best set of microphones for calling and noise cancellation during a call. And, and, and. Other than the still camera, the One has a great mix of features.

Which is why it got the award.

All phones will have some things that people don't like, otherwise no one would buy anything else.

BTW, did the HTC One kick your dog or something? It's like you're fueding with an inanimate object.

Honestly, i had HTC One. But that pimp pissed me off with bad battery life, overheating and keep crashin (i dont know why) and then i just dropped it from bed level into a CARPET and it just dent. So i give it to my cousin and never EVER want to see that phone again. It's in my nature to hate something that dissapoints me.

You must be quite the hater. Life is all about dealing with the disappointments.

Those editors know their stuff! Good for them. It's a great device, I would probably choose it myself. I'd take the Google Edition instead of the Sense version any day though.
