Today, the PhoneArena Awards of 2011 are dedicated to the phones that disappointed us the most this year. One of them will be given the “Worst phone” title and two other handsets will grab the slightly less humiliating second and third place respectively...

Its like Babe Ruth... in order to make the big home-runs, you have to strike out the most as well...

actually Samsung made all the worst phones on the list but hey even Samsung cant always hit a home run on every product

Wow, Samsung made arguably the best phone in 2011, and yet they made three of the worst. (I think the Galaxy S II makes up for these three and then some ;) )

"Its poor in-call sound quality and short battery life",
these critical points mentioned could easier have lead the iphone 4s to have been nominated here

Obviously you have no idea what you're talking about.

Dealing with complaints of such points in the mobile industry on a daily basis I can assure you i know quite well what im talking about

Samsung makes phones of all shapes and sizes - cheap and high-end - no big deal

ahhh yet again iphone is brought up into an article that has nothing to do with apple. ...
12. biophone (Posts: 1900; Member since: 15 Jun 2011)
There we go the first idiot. I was saying the iphone should of won the worst phone sarcastically. Its a joke because of everyone says the iphone is the best and i made a joke saying the iphone is the best worst phone.

ive learned that sarcasm doesnt translate well to these boards most of the time.. lol
19. hepresearch (unregistered)
I've learned that fact the hard way...
20. snowgator (Posts: 3385; Member since: 19 Jan 2011)
We need a universal sign on the boards for sarcasm in the worst way ......
32. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
hmm.. well, a smile isnt obvious enough, and *sarchasm* just... is too obvious. We need a funny sign of some sort like SG suggested. 8^P

he did not reply to you, but made a new comment. That probably means he´s not very bright.
25. biophone (Posts: 1900; Member since: 15 Jun 2011)
Well i hope most readers got my joke. Its pretty simple.

It is time for Samsung to make a fewer and best phones in the World. Currently Samsung make too many cheap plastic phones that turned people off even the best technologies inside. Motorola and HTC has better built quality.
14. sgogeta4 (Posts: 393; Member since: 02 Feb 2011)
Motorola has good quality phones, HTC doesn't.
26. Sniggly (Posts: 7285; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
Not true. HTC makes some very good phones.
30. HTCiscool (Posts: 449; Member since: 16 Jul 2011)
HTC has proved it can make quality phones, it just doesn't take the time to make most of them outstanding. Their build quality is good but they dont take time to improve battery life, make sunlight-legible screens and the likes, Motorola just takes more time to invest into their products and aren't in as big a hurry as htc is to get their phones out.

Samsung is the at the Top as well as at the Bottom.. All the Others just fill the gap in the middle...

Hey, Phone Arena, just out of curiosity, how bad does a phone have to be to get a "1"?
28. Nick_T (Posts: 162; Member since: 27 May 2011)
Basically, if it doesn't do absolutely anything right, especially the things it is marketed as being good at, it would get a one. Today's winner at least has a decent battery life.
36. snowgator (Posts: 3385; Member since: 19 Jan 2011)
Makes sense. I am going to stick around Phone Arena long enough to see a "1" review and a "10" review. At this rate, they both may be by Samsung

I came in expecting to see the iphone 4s - it gets my vote
especially with the battery bug - that has yet to be fixed and also the texting bug.
useless, glad i gave it back and got the galaxy nexus - best phone ever
31. Mozarrt (Posts: 297; Member since: 08 Oct 2011)
Of course it was going to be a Samsung running Android.
33. bambiheo85 (Posts: 2; Member since: 08 Dec 2011)
tomorrow best smartphone : nexus, note and s2 hd =))
34. jamrockjones (Posts: 345; Member since: 26 Oct 2011)
Samsung puts out so many phones!!! Pretty soon that's all we'll see in stores.
35. Lar1ssa (Posts: 2; Member since: 28 Nov 2011)
Haha I got the sarcasm and giggled at the idea of iphone being the best of the worst.. not that I think iphone is awful but I would say.. its kinda like thinking tyson or ali would win a big fight some years after his prime.. he can still knock out 89 of the population but looks very weak next to that other top 11%.. anyway samsung can make some pretty crappy products at the rate they mass produce compared to other phrne carriers that's not surprising
