Is it fair that they just make a article that can only be viewed as an attempt to bash a company?

Why should Nokia X be first on the list?, tell us cause I don't think it should be first, the other phones are there for a reason.

You fail realize that I am a fan of technology in general, you one minute thinking that I am a WP/MS and then next thinking I am a Nokia fan shows that.

well in the mobile space WP and Nokia are practically synonymous so that's more than understandable

If even was released in 2014, Phone arena will never talk badly about Apple

Not true... they talked about the rumored underwhelming battery life of the next iPhones.

because it works... it may not have all the bells and whistles but Android is where it is because of the iPhone.. its still a solid device with a large ecosystem why would phonearena have to talk badly about it.. there is no S5 or any other flagship on this list these are mid range phones.. the iPhone was released last year.

While that's true, it's also true that iOS wouldn't be what it is in 2014 without Android.

Still better than Nokia X BTW. Also iPhone 5C is better than any phone in this list.

Yup. 5C is over-priced but far from being the worst phone.

"Worst phone at it's price" is the subject, of course... It's pretty ridiculous that you should be ignored for a list like this just because you don't release budget phones... Actually, it just shows that flagship phones generally get better reviews, without taking their price into account.

Perhaps a different poll about best smartphone company, with a huge negative score for NOT releasing a budget smartphone for those with limited means...?

I don't think the iPhone 5C was bad, just lacking in features, grossly overpriced and ugly as sin. But yeah, it was released last year so it doesn't belong on this list.

Samsung's and HTC's mid-low range devices is really dismal. People are waking up to the fact a smartphone with decent features really shouldn't cost so much thanks to the several chinese brands and Motorola.

Both of them should really stop milking customers with their Galaxy and Desire branding.

So Apple gets away with not being on the list by releasing their phone later in the year? lol, j/k I'm just trolling, just keep scrolling...

Ahem OG Note, Note 3? Also S4 was not as ugly, the slim bezels, and the faux chrome gave it some character.
