PhoneArena Awards 2013: Best phablets

0. phoneArena 04 Dec 2013, 11:12 posted on

Remember when the very first Samsung Galaxy Note hit the shelves? It was ridiculed by many for its sheer size, but eventually, the handset did turn out to be a winner for its maker. In fact, it is the smartphone responsible for the advent of a new category of phones – phablets, as they are commonly being referred to. And quite a few of them saw the light of day in 2013. Most of the major smartphone manufacturers already have at least one phablet in their portfolios, with more to surely come in the foreseeable future. Having that in mind, it makes sense having a category dedicated to phablets in this year's PhoneArena Awards. Well, here it is!...

Yeah I was gonna say, I'm surprised Ray.S didn't oversell the iPhone 5S to make it be the most "pocketable phablet"

I'm surprised Ray didn't do, like the other tech sites would do, if they write such an article:
Put together with this 3 devices , the rumored iPhone 5.5" incher, with rumored specs(in their imaginations), and make it win .

How many phablets have you guys seen in use NOT bearing the Samsung brand?

I've only ever seen ONE, some dude carried around the Z Ultra. Dear Lord it was huge. But the Note has no match in this category whatsoever.

I LOVE Sony's Xperia Z designs so I'd say the Ultra looks fantastic, but yes Samsung's Note series is definitely on top. Samsung really got it right with starting the Note series.
