Poll results: here are our readers' favorite smartphone, tablet, and gadget of CES 2014
And last but not least we have the gadgets and gizmos of CES 2014 – there was no shortage of them, as anyone who attended the show would agree. The one that truly grabbed our readers' attention appears to be the Sony Core smartband, which is built to keep track of not just the user's fitness regime, but their entire life. Pebble's Steel smartwatch takes the second place and the Intel Edison SD-card-sized computer is third. Again, a significant fraction of our readers weren't very impressed with the selection of gadgets demonstrated at the show, judging by the poll results. Oh well, let us hope that next year's CES will be more exciting.

Is Sony alright?
Why on earth would anyone buy a 4.3 incher rather than 5incher?
If they thought they could be successful by making dimesion of phone similar to iphone,they are wrong.
LOL TO SONY
even galaxy smartwatch would outsell this z1compact

See the 'member since' dates. Most 'recent ones' are trolls.

Although I'm not. (troll I mean, yep, I'm alright)

Damn, I don't think he is, having some kinda haterade induced stroke. Apparently wider choice and availability is hard to understand. I think he is under the delusion that they will stop making 5 inch phones after this.

Speak for yourself. I (and many others) wouldd choose a compact, one hand friendly phone over a gigantic phone in a heartbeat.
For people such as yourself, there is the Z1. So you can gorge the the 5 inch to your pleasure.
Sony is offering choice, so stop mocking.

And yet, the poll saids otherwise... Some people...
Also, galaxy gear won't be outselling anything, it will only be out given.

Hi there troll with amazing big hands! I think you need a 40inch TV for your enormous hands
18. faizan-sharif (Posts: 54; Member since: 26 Jun 2013)
why the hell people will not like, i am one who has been waiting for, 5" device often slips out of my hand and , 4.3" is just perfect for me , and i wanted most powerful camera from sony that i am going to get, z1 is been available in the market , but i could nt go for that for the same reason,
You have your own views just talk about that, i hope sony will not take your comments into account, and would make phones for people who buy their products

Are you alright?
Who on earth would ask such a stupid question?
If you think you can be successful of trolling, you're wrong.
LOL TO ARANAUSER
Boy, you're stupid.
27. surethom (Posts: 315; Member since: 04 Mar 2009)
Because Sony phone dont have thin bezels so people with normal size hands cannot use the 5" phone one handed. 4.7" is the ideal phone screen size.

Some people doesn't like big phones. Now we have an android phone that could compete head on with the iPhone .

Galaxy smartwatch is rubbish. Pointless gadget . No waterproof ? Limited functionality ? High price ?
I rather get a traditional watch myself but if I really have to pick a smartwatch it would be the pebble or Sony smartwatch 2

Everybody says this about the Galaxy Gear....except the people who have one.

Im glad Sony is makign the Z1 compact. It is actually a Z1, but compact. It is not like the S4 mini or other scam phones where they put low or mid range specs in a phone titled after being a smaller flagship. Good to see someone other than Apple and Blackberry is treating those with smaller device preferences with respect.
2. Finalflash (Posts: 1872; Member since: 23 Jul 2013)
I'm going to take a guess this time that this compact power race that seems to be forming with Android along with Google's design push for their software should make Apple go under 10% market share worldwide for the first time. It really was the last real advantage Apple had and now that seems to be under attack. Even though Apple seems to be entering the large phone market, I wonder how many people will actually switch from more functionality to less since it is harder to do than from less to more.

2 years in row, Sony wow'd the crowd of CES of their XPERIA magic.not to mention what will Sony bring on MWC just around the corner.
16. PapaSmurf (Posts: 8802; Member since: 14 May 2012)
Imo, Sony fell short this year. I expected a lot more from them.
24. spiderpig2894 (Posts: 438; Member since: 10 Jan 2012)
Because it is CES. You won't expect much of phones at CES. MWC is what you should see if you are talking about phones.
32. PapaSmurf (Posts: 8802; Member since: 14 May 2012)
Notice how I didn't mention phones. The only thing they wow'd me with was the 4K handycam. $2,000 is really cheap comparing the prices to others.
33. spiderpig2894 (Posts: 438; Member since: 10 Jan 2012)
Notice why I typed "if". Kidding aside. Well, I assumed that the topic was about phones. :)
12. Duketytz (Posts: 514; Member since: 28 Nov 2013)
Looks like 2014 might just be the year where Sony remove the title of underdogs! Time to regain the crown Sony:)
17. PapaSmurf (Posts: 8802; Member since: 14 May 2012)
It's great that you're being optimistic, but Samsung and Apple aren't going anywhere.
22. buccob (Posts: 1539; Member since: 19 Jun 2012)
Agree. Sony is actually aiming for 4th place globally... Of course after that goal, they could hope for more growth... But as it is, Apple and Samsung will be on top for a while.

Sony please read these polls and all of the comments on your phones. Then bring them to the US in a widespread fashion. Thank you
