Which, as we all know, isn't saying much!

One X got beaten by the 4S? The 5 I would understand, I know it was released too late, but the 4S? Eh. Bronze isn't bad, plus it took best video phone and for social networking, so props to HTC for that. But major win by Sammy taking the gold for 2 years in a row, congrats to them. If only iPhone 5, Note II, and One X+ could be included in this, then the list might be a bit different...

I don't think there was a best battery category... Shame ): Seriously though, the Razr Maxx should've been included in there somewhere.

Even if the iPhone 5 was included, the SGIII still dominates it. After all, anything running iOS is extremely far behind Jelly Bean. W's!

The Galaxy SIII might have won, but i wouldn't trade my One X for an SIII. :)

To me they are so close it would just be throwing money away for a slightly better phone IMO.

Man, I was a die hard HTC fan for years. Went from Evo to Galaxy Nexus and it was a world of difference. I did put Jelly Bean on the Nexus about 2 month ago, but I'll never buy an HTC device again. Note 2!

You might want to reconsider your last point, the new One line is pretty damn awesome, my stock 4.0.4 One X hits 5900 on quadrant and there are people reporting that with jellybean it hits near 7000 on quadrant, and the overall performance is just awesome.

I am still hoping Asus makes the Nexus 10. That would probably do better than the nexus 7. IMHO.

Apple didn't get an award for design or value, so much for the tons of comments I've been reading from a certain camp that believes it's the tops in both those categories.

Really wish I had the opportunity to even purchase an One X to try out with my carrier.

This is sort of reflected in previous news and articles. Good job anyway. even if iphone 5 is launched earlier, i think the s3 is still going to win. It just saves apple some embarrassment.

So what is IP5 was launched late. That's no excuse. IP5 is just an IP4s stretched a bit in a hurry and stuffed with iOS666.

agree with you, would of been nice to see the n9 get some recognition as it was the start of that design the 808, well there is no surprise it won, the camera is miles ahead of any other phone.
