PhoneArena Awards 2012: Best Product Design

0. phoneArena 06 Dec 2012, 13:44 posted on

When checking out a new gadget, one of the first things that creates an impression in a consumer's mind is the way the device looks and the way it feels when it is being used. In other words, a product's design is a pretty big deal, and companies that make phones and tablets are well aware of that fact. That is why the next category in the PhoneArena Awards of 2012 is for the best product design...

I thought that. The designs are ones that you either love or hate, but the Xperias were new to phone and tablet market this year and brought designs that were unique and set them apart from everyone else.

Things like these causes one to question tech sites and their take on products. Its best as a consumer to do your own research. While sometimes frustrating, its also welcoming to see their "opinions" as it a source guide to buying a product.

Where's the RAZR in it? Last year's model is thinner than this one. Indeed, it's one sturdy device, but I think it loses its appeal for its lack of being razor thin.

So what? As long as it feels nice and looks good,it deserves to be on the list!

xD regardless of what it's called or the brand it represents it's still a extremely sturdy device that just exudes a premium sense of quality.

Well, since APPLE's boring design made the top 3, I see your point. I love the design of my Droid RAZR over the iphone 4...errr...iphone 4S...I mean iphone 5....

Everyone complaining about the iPhone 5, if you actually own one, and take care of it, not be careless, than it doesn't get any more scratches than any other phone. This is coming from someone who actually owns it.

Xperia S is a Red Dot Award winning phone for its desingn.
Phone Arena didn't vote for Xperia S, are they immature and biased?

iPhone 5...really? Well, they are nice looking devices but honestly, does anyone feel like having the exact same design for the last three years kinda disqualifies it as "Design of the Year" contender. I could see the Nexus 4 or GS3, but when I see an iPhone 5 I just feel like I've seen this several times before. There isn't anything new or different about it other than the metal back.

But I like the PA Awards. Keep em' coming Nick! :)

As a techie, I'm ashamed to say I've seen the Optimus G in person for the first time just last week. But I have to agree, that is a very nice looking device. +1 sir!

When I look at best designs of 2012, I'm under impression that since 'IPhone like' shape became universal trend, world of cell phones (from visual angle) has become extremely boring...

not really, its the fact that now touch screens are standard and right now however you look at it there isnt too much room for over the top difference in design (especially the front of the device) as the screen dominates the design

all phones will kinda look like slabs in one way or the other.
