2014 Global Mobile Awards winners: HTC One, Nokia Lumia 520, iPad Air and others


The GSMA announced the winners of the 19th Annual Global Mobile awards, held in Barcelona at MWC 2014 (which, as you should know, is organized by the GSMA).

The Best Smartphone award was won by the HTC One, which competed against Apple’s iPhone 5S, the LG G2, Nokia’s Lumia 1020, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

Here’s the judges’ motivation for giving the award to HTC’s 2013 flagship handset:


As we said back in January, it’s too bad that all the awards that the HTC One received didn’t bring higher sales numbers.

Nokia’s Windows-based Lumia 520 received the Best Low Cost Smartphone award. It competed against four other affordable handsets (sub-$150 wholesale price), all running Android: Lenovo A390T, Samsung Galaxy Young, Sony Xperia E, and Xiaomi Hongmi.

That's what I say! .....oh gee they used Aircraft grade aluminum and Samsung uses their own Award Winning Cheil Industries's "Infino Brand" Polycarbonate. Now being used in nearly every Luxury Car Maker's automobiles as well as Space Age products in Aeronautics, including new Boeing and Airbus aircraft, Medical Products, Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and now Galaxy S5. Along with the durable, scratch resistant, impact resistant, environmentally safe produced REMOVABLE.... Top on the Bugatti Veyron Convertible! Which isn't exactly cheap either either. Not to mention it's flame resistant as well for high heat use and a WHOLE LOT MORE COMFORTABLE TO HOLD...... than any metal or aluminum in extreme cold, sun or heat!!! ;-P

LG G2 should win ! but its okay G2 won in many reviews. HTC NEEDS THAT AWARDS TO GAIN MORE COSTUMERS...

Good job for HTC, they really deserved it! I'm hoping that this year HTC's new flagship will get more recognized especially when the new Galaxy S5 isn't as good phone as we were expecting.

This was a judgement on smartphones released at or after last year's MW Award Winners. Has nothing to do with HTC's next phone, this year's Galaxy S5, or any other phone set to be released! Get over the fact he's right! .....and you're not!!! Maybe like Samsung and Seahawks's Richard Sherman..... he's just better at Life than YOU! ;-P ......and HTC (no sales) as well as Apple (less than half the sales)!!! ^_^

Nothing from Sony. Apple and HTC deserve design awards and best tablets.

Should create Phablet category award to next year, since all seems to jump on that train.

iPad Air edged the Note 2014. Note 3 does go head to head with the One overall.

Oh yeah, that's quality products! Not plastic, no gimmicks!

Quality products have nothing to do with metal or how it looks, but how it looks over the course of time....Methinks that Apple has brainwashed you...

He's trolling. He's been doing this since yesterday.

I still have my Mac Pro, ipod touch 2nd generation, HTC Sensation, HTC Hero etc.. still working and in good condition.. NOW THAT'S QUALITY..

HTC Sensation was complete garbage. Only thing that was good about it was design. iPod Touch 2G lagged like hell and could barely run games at the time. Macs on the other hand... Quality, quality, quality.

We're talking about networkdood's comment Smurf. And yes Macs = Quality, I have the Mac Pro way back 2009, before that I got iMac G5 (2004), is there a problem? Don't talk about garbage because you're talking about Sam..ng :D
