Your favorite phone from CES 2012?

Your favorite phone from CES 2012?
Now that CES 2012 has come and gone, we guess it's time to draw the line and decide which was the best phone from all of those announced at the trade-show. We saw some pretty well-balanced offerings, and there were also a few that tried to get noticed by packing some notable features... like a 16MP camera, for example.

We ourselves find it somewhat difficult to pick just one handset, considering that there wasn't a device that stole the show. If you're interested in what we believe is the best selection of CES 2012 phones and tablets, feel free to check out our Highlights of CES 2012!

It's hard to say which one's the overall best phone, but we are sure that every user has found the handset that suits them best. Let's see which phone has found the biggest fan-base among PhoneArena readers!

okay, there's no sense in these thumbs down because i have damn good reasons for my taste in phones.

Eh don't worry about it King. When people go on thumbs down sprees, it is normally without rhyme or reason.

Also because considering all the good, new and fresh(er) phones at CES the Droid 4 and Droid Razr Maxx are hardly new or exciting.

Are you kidding. The droid 4 first lte phone with a keyboard and dual core. The droid razr maxx best battery life of any 4g phone. With top of the line hardware.

It's ironic that you are getting upset with people's opinion of your opinion. Don't worry about them and while I don't agree with you it's your personal opinion that PA was asking for.

you thumbs down for wrong or bad posts not for ones that express a different opinion. thumbing should be used to root out who's full of s**t and who's not.

While I only resort to thumbing down somebody on very rare occasions (if they something intended to be offensive), not everybody here would agree on an acceptable situation for giving thumbs down. Some people do it for the same reasons I might, some people might do it simply because they disagree with a post. Either way, it's not up to us to decide.

Don't sweat it King. Both the RAZR MAXX and Droid 4 will produce tons of interest, all kinds of posts, and good sales. You will be VINDICATED!!!!

Yes, that is what I voted for. Sony definitely has something to prove in the mobile market now. And I have a Windows Phone, so the Nokia Lumia 900 would have been my second choice, but I really think Sony is coming back in 2012-2013. . . My next update, which is Christmas, will probably be an Android--an Android that has the best Spec/Custom UI combo.

Nah WP ain't popular, Nokia is!
Those who voted the Lumia are mostly indian nokia fanboys, hoping that WP will bring Nokia back on stage.

You had the most ignorant comment of all. You're rude and a troll of Android or iOS. Smh....Indians.

I agree that was an extremely dumb comment. Especially considering its a phone for At&t in America. Why would Indians care about it or idk...
Not cool.

Nokia is very famous in all Europe and South America, the indians too. Idk why not in U.S, because the body construction is refined, the colors are great, the design and the high end devices doesn't looks like made of cheap materials (Samsung).

No, don't worry, WP7 is so popular that wins every poll..... Marketing votes for them ;-) but sales are just 1 million per year 2011.... Don't be manipulated by this....observe the sales, not marketing

You do realize that was 1 million sales for Nokia alone- and the 710 and the 800 were released in late November? That is respectable start in limited sales markets.

Hey! Why do you hate me? Its true and Nokia never did released anything that would blow your mind at CES and I am already familar and bored already on the oversize Lumia 900 which almost similar to Lumia 800. I'm still waiting for the new N8 with 3X optical zoom. My point is Nokia didn't surprised me at CES and Sony did came out from the crappy X10 in a big way.

Lumia 900. I like the Sony phones but I have been paying way more attention to the Lumia 900 than any other device at CES this year.

I like the Galaxy Note & Skyrockte HD leaning more towards the GN tho because ICS does get released to it its going to be the best phone out.I only hope that if they are going to release these phones in different colors that they do it on the first lauch instead of waiting a month after to bring differerent colors.They need to realize that these phone companies charge restocking fees for returning phones.Not everyone like black phones so please release them all at the same time to save us the consumers money im sorry thats my soapbox that pisses me off!

My personal vote goes for Sony Xperia S. IMHO Nokia lumia 900 doesn't look pretty at all, on the contrary but de gustibus non est disputandum.

I don't like the 900 in black but if it comes out in red like i've seen in pics then it'll be the hottest phone around!

These new android phones really disappoint me since they aren't going to be pushed out with ICS. Some of these phones probably won't be out until summer and who knows how long until an ICS update gets pushed out...

Xperia S & Skyrocket HD :)

Too much bezel on too many phones. Hardware has a long way to go. Will the Galaxy S-3 surprise us? Probably not.

I like the lumia 900, but it is over shadowed by the xperias. I also like the galaxys, but we seen them already, so its not a show-stopper.

Voted the Nokia 900, but that is because I am quite the WP fan boy and I want it to do well. I am also excited by the Droid 4. Also interested in Sony's solo effort. The S/E Play my son has is a solid effort from a year ago, and has the best call quality on any phone I played with in 2011. Honest- it blew me away how clear it was!!

My prediction might just come true based on this poll. A lot of interest on the Lumia 900. I see a significant number of android users switching back to Nokia :) Iphone users of course will stick with their iphones as proven by the iphone's very high user satisfaction ratings and low return rates :)

How are the Sony phones looking like Touchwiz? Touchwiz is a UI by Samsung, not a phone.
