GSMA anounced 2013 mobile awards winners: see who won for best smartphone and tablet here
The Mobile World Congress is the largest mobile show in the world and that’s why the awards given away by its organizers from the GSM Association have more value and weight to them than others. The GSMA has just announced the winners for this year, and Samsung is clearly the big winner.

Other manufacturers also grabbed some of the awards, though, so it wasn’t just about the South Korean company. Take a look at the 2013 GSMA award winners right below.

They didn't participate in the show. The awards were only considered for devices that were part of it.

Woops, my bad, iPhone 5 was considered. Thought it was more like a trade show like CES which Apple doesn't usually participate in.

Yes, you certainly are a fanboy. What you don't realize, is that your OPINION is just that. They teach kids in kindergarten the difference between fact and opinion these days. By the way, you must be talking about the original Galaxy line. Android 4.0 is EXTREMELY neat and clean, though more complex than other operating systems. Samsung also, through TouchWiz, added tons of INNOVATIVE, EXCLUSIVE features to the GS III. I agree that Samsung could make a more premium design, but that would raise the already expensive costs. The S3 is SOMETIMES beaten in YouTube comparisons, but Samsung has no control over that. Windows Phone is made to run on less and do more; Android isn't and Samsung can't change that. Besides, I believe that Samsung has proven its handset in sales. Perhaps the Lumia models are selling well, but that's because they have to. Samsung still has WAY outsold all Lumia models.

The Lumia 920 loses automatically because it has a 4.5 inch screen yet it is more difficult to handle than 5 inch monster like the Xperia Z, DNA, and butterfly. Heck, it is heavier than the 5.5 inch Note 2. Sorry, but that is a parameter that Nokia can't skimp on. It is like building a two door coupe that is heavier than a 4 wheel drive turck with heavy towing capacity. That just doesn't fly.

Can you name those features, or will you trash a handset with a ridiculously higher number of sales than every Lumia combined with no evidence? I think the 920 is fantastic, but you are tarnishing its name by showing us its supporters are mindless fanboys. I have never owned a Samsung or Nokia, but I still respect both of their flagship devices. Also, find a grammar teacher. Both you and the other fanboy are further tarnishing the phone's name by making yourselves look ignorant.

I hope to see a change next year.. want HTC or SONY device to be the best device of the year.. Dont like the all plastic Samsung Products.. even though they are the best in terms of Software Enhancements and Hardware Optimizations.. but i personally dont like the all plastic bodies.. Love what HTC has done with the One and SONY with the new Xperia.

If only my friend, body construction won prizes...Apple would have grabbed all the prixes. Samsung does best, what needs to be best. They succeed in whatever they do!!
