Look, it is hard to judge design as it is sometimes so subjective, but there seem to be some general agreement on what’s good and what’s not…

Now this is very disappointing.. Motorola must be in the conversation and win all the design aspects of all the categories.. come on guys.. Kevlar back, aluminum body with nano coating and gorilla glass.. best built phone with the best skin in all android phones...

on the practical side I would prefer samsung line, but I always love the iconic design of Iphones...I both have samsung galaxy note II and Iphone 4s but I wont worry dropping my Note because its casing is very user replaceable and at a cheaper value than the iphones...I dropped my Iphone once and guess what, I preferred buying a new Iphone than replacing the case...Nokia's design is undoubtly pretty specially the new Lumia 620 and lumia 800...but it will look like a toy if you place it side by side with my new Iphone 5...peace!My vote goes to apple...apple's designs is for all ages.

I dont know why sony is number one. The Z was pretty nice looking but the One looks like it took much longer to design with a real attention to detail. Again, i'm not saying the Z doesnt have detail but the One looks better. Plus, Sony, only now, has begun to increase the design level of there phones. Before the Z,all Sony's literally had the same design which ,at first ,looked nice but got stale real quickly. HTC's phones were always attractive!

After looking at the Nokia phone at different stores I can see why people would vote for it, however it is unfortunate that MS has ruined Nokia's market share. HTC is coming to take over the top spot with their new phone.

Whereis the OPPO? If it had 4GLTE it would be the most popular phone in the world and would win the design contest hands down. And, why is Apple even in the list?
