The Samsung Galaxy S 4 won't be the year's only hot smartphone

0. phoneArena 18 Mar 2013, 11:15 posted on

Right after the Galaxy S 4 announcement, we posted a poll asking you which high-end smartphone you were most tempted to purchase. Naturally, Samsung's pride and joy was on the list, yet it didn't quite get to the top spot. Out of a total of 10 190 participants...

We do not manipulate the polls - we only delete the fake votes. For example one person tried to manipulate the results by voting 55 times for one option and 30 times for another option. We have deleted his votes. Another person was more extreme - he added more than 570 000 fake votes, all of which we have deleted.

The article just has shown that there are a great number of Nokia fans in PA and their fixed mind only on Nokia products no matter what they offer or others offer.

I don't really think normal customers will buy N920 instead of GS4 but the result showed 38.68% in favor of Nokia.
What a joke and unrealistic to be honest

The reality would be like: GS4=100 : N920=2
In other words, "No chance to N920"

Now N920 has become 59.28%
Do they have bots in here? lol

Just to prove you wrong, Nokia is Nokia, and Samsung is Samsung.
Nokia is single-handedly responsible for most of the Windows Phone Share, and if it would have chosen Android, may be its Android Flagship would have been an year ahead of any other brand, especially in design and features. (Okay, maybe not Sony only in design dept as their designs are equally original and beautiful)

I am saying this again:

Can you prove any of what you just said or that's just your opinion?
I am sorry I just believe what I can see
(The result:The fact)
How the hell that great company keeps losing a great amount of $$$$ in consecutive years?

What do you think you are?
Is Nokia GOD?
Do you just wanna believe it?
Please stop saying "If" , "maybe"...
Just tell me that you just like Nokia no matter what
That makes more sense and I can understand

I do respect the opinions Nokia fanboys have in favor of Nokia.
But it is many times disgusting to see you guys' unconditional love for Nokia OVER EVERYTHING.
Like this poll.
If CNN or BBC had the same poll, the result would say, i am 100% sure, Nokia is nowhere near 5%.

But in PA its the best!
How funny is this? Huh?
I bet PA is only place you guys can play lol

if nokia didn't exist
your phone that you own now will probably not exist .

besides , putting a quad core , 1080p screen and high res camera without any innovative technology stuffed with the camera like OIS AND OVER SAMPLING IN A PHONE , TRUST ME THAT'S NOT INNOVATION

Everyone knows that these polls are not to be taken seriously. It's just about the PA community, which is obviously full of Nokia fanboys from the middle east, where nokia still has a market.

Anyone who reads this article and finds out that Lumia 920 outvotes the S4 and the One X also the Sony Z will be saying this is a bogus untrue article. If the L920 had that many votes I don't see sales of them being any good, neither have I seen anyone holding this phone. Alot of S3 and iP4 S2 are commonly seen. Looks like Nokia users have been revoting this sevrals of time. Clearing cache and data and again voting. How dispicable are those Nokia fanboys.

Phonearena no one will believe this pool, It has been tampered.......!

MrJerry again is crying conspiracy, and doesn't believe that Nokia can make a good product, and even though he's never tried the lumia 920, he's willing to make bold assumptions. Well, there's just no pleasing people who are naive and ill informed ;o)

I hope someday Nokia makes Nexus, They might not adopt the Android, but it would be great if they could manufacture Nexus 6 for us :), Then probably the only smartphone in the world would be Nexus 6 :)

Where is the Optimus G Pro in that list? It warrants inclusion over the Xperia Z at least.

I don't see how a phone released later with a better screen, better processor, and more up-to-date OS than the Xperia Z is a joke, but then again you have an Xperia Z as your profile picture, and you consistently trash every phone from every manufacturer other than Sony, so forgive me if I don't get your sense of humor.

109. emadshiny (Posts: 1131; Member since: 05 Dec 2012)


how is the screen better? if you look at your phone from angles then you must visit your doctor. but if you look at it straight then its not better than Z. the processor is better but the benchmarks are not higher than Z with a great distance. the OS version of both is the same. these are your points while you forgot the camera which is obviously better in Z. the multimedia richness of Z. better UI and more standard dimensions. water and dust proof and of course a better design. Optimus G pro is copy of Note 2 and it looks ugly. no need to mention that battery sucks as well. now tell me which one is better?

posted on 18 Mar 2013, 15:36 3

115. Commentator (Posts: 2412; Member since: 16 Aug 2011)


The Optimus G Pro because it has a more modern processor, better viewing angles, a larger screen, removable (and much larger) battery, and a camera comparable to the one in the Z. I got all this info from PhoneArena's own comparison by the way, but if you would like to publish your own comparison of the two devices on your own review site, I'll be happy to take a look!

larger screen was a good point.
how a larger screen is better? that makes G pro a phablet and it thats one of the main reasons that it is excluded from poll. in that situation, Note 2 must be included as well. i told you that if you always look at your screen from angles, you need an immediate treatment. the battery is not powerful enough as it has a 5.5" 1080p display. any other argument?

Thanks doc, I'll set an appointment to get my eyes checked right away, because whatever YOU say is law. Also, I'd take a 3140 mAh battery with a 5.5" screen over a 2330 mAh battery with a 5" screen any day.

Not every OS needs Quad Core's and Octa Core's to run efficiently!

Ive never seen a Nokia handset with specs like what the iP4s and the S3 or Htc Onex. Nokia is all about connecting people.
Everything it uses on there phones are midrange, except that good camera of SONY.

You're an idiot if you think the majority of users were actually selecting Sony, instead of a few Sony fanboys with no lives sitting around voting multiple times for the same device. Look at this poll right now: the Lumia 920 is getting 100 votes every 5 seconds. Do you HONESTLY think these are different people coming to this site voting for their favorite phone? REALLY?

Sure, this article is not to be believed, but for the exact opposite reasons you're stating.

What? A screenshot of the poll a few days ago? "Dude," I saw that too. My point is that means NOTHING because the poll is being exploited by fanboys who either hack the thing or actually sit around voting multiple times. Granted, I'm sure you're one of these people, but come on, look at this current poll again: do you ACTUALLY think 11,000+ different people came on and voted for the Lumia 920 over the last 30 minutes?!?!

I find it funny now that Nokia is winning you fan boys come out saying its rigged etc! So if its rigged why couldn't android fan boys do the same?

Lets say it was the s4 with this high amount of votes what then? You guys wouldn't even dare say it was rigged!

Lastly you do realize that even though Nokia is not selling high amounts of phones currently, it still sold millions if not billion of phones to people around the world and being a company making such high quality phones many of that billions might be interested in buying a Nokia again!

So you to say this is rigged or whatever, the fact is Nokia had a user of over the millions, so 10 000 out of 10 million could still be possible!

Who says I'm an Android fanboy? Last time I checked I've been arguing with a Sony fanboy who's going on about how PA hates Sony because they took down the rigged Sony votes. Also, last time I checked, Sony uses Android as its OS.

As it stands now, the poll for the Nokia 920 shows ~3000 votes, which is down 8000 votes from when I checked at noon. Apparently someone at PA saw fit to take these votes away for one reason or another. 26% of people voting for the Lumia makes way more sense than 50%+ voting for it.

And yes, I WOULD dare to say it was rigged if any other phone got that number of votes. It's common sense.
