Microsoft is safe and high security? Hahahahah...ever heard of BlackBerry?
16. koko1 (Posts: 103; Member since: 03 Dec 2013)
if blackberry is safe, that dosent mean thats other OS's are not safe !!
in fact, wp is the second most secure platform out there

I didn't say other OS's are not safe. -__-'

Yes, Microsoft is very safe... they just posted another record breaking profitable quarter hahahaha!
Joking aside but really,
Blackberry is not safe... it's circling down the drain as we speak :-(
Just joking hahahaha!

Motorola. They are just as good as Chinese OEM in my country. But they are still damn good at innovation. Going after ergonomics was an awesome idea. Going after 2012 specs was not such a good idea. Going with Active Notifications was awesome too. I hope they can keep up with others in the specs department.

newsflash buddy... no matter what OS/platform you're on and you're connected to the internet and as long as NSA is lurking there...
the concept of safe are long gone...

Apple, Microsoft and Android are US companies.
BlackBerry, Sailfish, Ubuntu, Tizen and Symbian(late) are not and are less likely to be tampered by US goverment.

Try just as likely (if not more likely) to be targeted by NSA. If the object of interest is using brand X, NSA will find a way to hack into it. Resistance is futile.
51. microsoftnokiawin (Posts: 1178; Member since: 30 Mar 2012)
yeah but tizen ubuntu and sailfish all have their servers in europe not in the usa thus it's harder for nsa to get in there

Newsflash buddy...the NSA isn't interested in 99.9% of phone users. Be more worried about what hackers and private companies of all national origin are doing with your data. And every other government in the world, even those in the wonderful EU are spying too.

Nokia, Motorola, and Google.
But I think Google will serve the best.

Pacman is awesome! If you know what I mean.
62. LGisgood (Posts: 833; Member since: 23 Jun 2012)
YEAH I KNOW THAT!
PACMAN IS GREAT!

while i post this comment,NOKIA stands @ 25%.highest among all.
5. highwaysnobbery (Posts: 22; Member since: 19 Feb 2013)
I think Motorola is doing some very interesting things. I can't wait to see what they do next. I probably won't buy one but I'm watching.
42. Napalm_3nema (Posts: 2078; Member since: 14 Jun 2013)
I'm also intrigued. The X was the most innovative phone of 2013, and it had great ergonomics. If they could get a 5" screen into that footprint, with another great SoC, great battery life, and Motomaker, I will definitely grab the successor.
45. Droid_X_Doug (Posts: 5993; Member since: 22 Dec 2010)
I have really had a soft spot for Moto - all the way back to the OG Droid X. I am quite satisfied with my Maxx, so I am hoping Moto releases a follow-on to the Maxx that is compelling.
48. Droid_X_Doug (Posts: 5993; Member since: 22 Dec 2010)
Update - hopefully, Moto is able to add an enhanced camera function (OIS and faster shot-to-shot performance one to mind) to the Maxx.
70. highwaysnobbery (Posts: 22; Member since: 19 Feb 2013)
I loved my Droid X. First smartphone that really wowed me. The ones before that were an HTC Touch Pro and HTC Droid Eris.
6. emadshiny (Posts: 1144; Member since: 05 Dec 2012)
I think we must look forward to every manufacturer as the intensity of rivalry is getting high.
7. Vanster (Posts: 124; Member since: 15 Jan 2014)
does M$ pay people to vote? Hahaha no, they paid for nokia, and nokia is good
10. strikercho (banned) (Posts: 156; Member since: 20 Mar 2012)
Ok, Nokia/MS in the first place, a little strange, but fine. But Samsung and Sony third and second, WTF?! What new can be expected from them? Apple introduced the 64-bit CPU and OS, the fingerprint sensor A YEAR ago and still they can't catch up, and now they plan for solar-charger integrated in the screen, come on! One must be Asian or blind, to be a fan of cheap plastic toys from Shmashung, LJ, Huwayaway, and etc. Motorola was once good, but they got bought by Giggle, so...that was it for them.

Ladies and gentleman, we have a troll over here.
19. Alei-Eldeen (Posts: 3; Member since: 07 Aug 2013)
the 64bit CPU is crap if you have less than 4 GB of ram. and Honestly I don't see why would Samsung or HTC or any other company try to copy the fingerprint scanner because it's so damn useless
22. koko1 (Posts: 103; Member since: 03 Dec 2013)
its because of apple did !!
i bet if apple use plastic they're going to say plastic is the best !
and about the 64 bit, the Q is, what did it do for ur phone ?? completely nothing but faster in a 0.5 sec !
44. Augustine (Posts: 1043; Member since: 28 Sep 2013)
Not really. Yes, ARMv8 supports 64 bits, but it's much more than that. It addresses several weaknesses of the ARM architecture and refreshes it for the requirements of contemporary applications. ARMv8 has faster, more compact code that requires less energy to run, whether one has more than 4GB of RAM or not.
20. koko1 (Posts: 103; Member since: 03 Dec 2013)
64 bit huawei made it first, even thou, what did it do for ur phone ?? faster by 0.5 sec only ???
samsung make the best software, and their update is better than ur horrible ios updates that bring issues every single year, talking about plastic, the problem that this plastic brought to us a great phone, not a stupid old fashioned ip5s, when u compare a smartphone compare what TECHNOLOGY it have, not how beauty, are going to bang it ??
i have an ip5 and im waiting either a new sony phone or samsung
i want something new, technology and FREEDOM
24. shuaibhere (Posts: 1983; Member since: 07 Jul 2012)
One must be from US to Choose IOS over Android..and 4 inch screen over 5 inch...

Its called preferences bud.
55. WindowsiDroid (Posts: 133; Member since: 22 Jul 2013)
Nokia is also developing solar-charging screen and Motorola Or Sony is the first one who developed fingerprint sensor so your statement is invalid.
11. xperiaDROID (banned) (Posts: 5629; Member since: 08 Mar 2013)
Is there an option for "I don't know"? Because it's very difficult to say which manufacturer I'm looking forward the most this year, these manufacturers are kicking high gear this year, so I expect a lot of awesome flagships from them. But since there's no "I don't know" option, I will choose Sony, because Sony always make me believe.
14. TechDork (Posts: 284; Member since: 10 May 2010)
...*shrugs* Nothing hasn't really jumped out at me. Everything is beginning to look the same.
23. koko1 (Posts: 103; Member since: 03 Dec 2013)
waiting either samsung or sony
i was disappointed of the ip5s
25. Suo.Eno (Posts: 475; Member since: 17 Feb 2013)
Sony. Because so far to me despite yes some apparent flaws, they're the one company that actually brings meaningful use to end products such as the IP55/58 compliant product designs (makes perfect sense since smart devices can't be used indoors ALL the time) and above all when it concerns Android; they're the only most open/cooperative player in the custom ROM game.
That being said as I'm looking forward for any Snapdragon 410 inside smartphone to get out sooner or later, I highly doubt that Sony has plans for one though it'd be a nice surprise if they do. Also I'd like to see them take riskier bets on an Intel SoC initiative.
/currently still w/ an S II GT-I9100G, Android 4.4.2/OmniROM nightlies.
28. XaErO (Posts: 296; Member since: 25 Sep 2012)
Samsung for sure .. but also looking forward to what Sony will bring this time ..
32. grbrao (Posts: 252; Member since: 23 Nov 2012)
as long as people are insane about new things, these market jimmiks works.... what ever the phones we have in 2013 is more than enough for two more year, 2.2gzh speed, 3gb ram, 1080 resolution screens, advanced LTE, what else?.... people are really obsessed with technology and companies are simply cashing on it. I think the down fall of smart phones has started...... as the specs go up, so as the price... this is gonna be a never ending story....
34. Tsepz_GP (Posts: 973; Member since: 12 Apr 2012)
S5 and Note 4 :)
But I'm excited to see what other OEMs come up with to, especially Nokia, LG and HTC.
37. xperiaz2 (Posts: 4; Member since: 12 Jan 2014)
Iam waiting the new version of xperia ZL this year
38. Glim12808 (Posts: 394; Member since: 26 Oct 2011)
I love Windows Phone so naturally I'm most interested in what Nokia/Microsoft comes up with for MWC. But right now, I want the Lumia Icon/929/930 to be released internationally immediately because that's going to be my next phone!
40. papss (unregistered)
For sure nokia/m$.. If other OEMs were making wp8 I might want to hear about them too.. Sony I'm talking to you
41. darkkjedii (Posts: 19387; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
If I could choose 3 it's Apple Samsung, and HTC. Since I can only choose one, gotta go with my daily driver, the Big A.
46. alrightihatepickingusernames (Posts: 474; Member since: 29 Dec 2013)
Oppo! They always impress me.
50. paynekiller (Posts: 139; Member since: 24 May 2010)
Samsung, if only for the soft keys at the bottom most other manufacturers have gotten rid of.
52. sgodsell (Posts: 3056; Member since: 16 Mar 2013)
Motorola, LG, Sony, Samsung, HTC, Apple, Nokia. All in that order
53. yudi.nemesis (Posts: 1127; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)
Z1 Compact and Z Ultra (2014) To get the best experience from sony.
54. anleoflippy (Posts: 595; Member since: 03 Jan 2013)
Really interested in what Sony, Lenovo and HTC will bring.
