PhoneArena Awards 2012: Game of the year
Still, we had to pick a game of the year for our PhoneArena Awards of 2012 series.
Can you guess which game we've selected? If you can't, then we'll tease you no more. Ladies and gents, to us, the game of 2012 is...
Here's a game that you shouldn't install in case you have an important deadline coming up. That's because once you start playing SHADOWGUN: DeadZone, you'll have difficulties putting your smartphone or tablet down. It is a multiplayer action game inspired by the likes of HALO and Call of Duty.
You get to play with gamers from all over the world, in either Deathmatch mode, which is a classic, free-for-all fight, or in Zone Control mode, which requires tactics and teamwork to be applied. There are plenty of different weapons to unlock and purchase with the money you make while playing. Actually, there is so much variety when it comes to unlockables that you'll keep on playing just so that you can try them all out. But it wasn't only the gameplay that made us go with SHADOWGUN: DeadZone as our winner today. We also took into account the console-quality graphics that the game is so highly acclaimed for. All the eye-candy that has been thrown in enhances the experience even further, especially if you have a Tegra 3 powered device.

17 December PhoneArena Awards 2012: Best PhoneCue the drum roll, pop the champagne, and throw the confetti up in the air! Get ready for the grand finale in our PhoneArena Awards of 2012 series because today we are announcing the year's best phone. And as you might expect, the winner in today's category is a smartphone - a smartphone that is great in many ways, which is why it truly deserves to be honored...
14 December PhoneArena Awards 2012: Worst PhoneOur frequent readers are probably well informed as to which of the phones currently on the market are good and which aren't. After all, it is our duty to review as many of them as possible and then tell you which handsets you should avoid or purchase in case you're out looking for one. Speaking of which, the great majority of the phones we got to play with over the past 12 months were actually very decent devices. Some of them, however, weren't that well executed, and today we'll tell you about the ones that underwhelmed us the most...
13 December PhoneArena Awards 2012: Best TabletTablets - they're getting pretty popular, aren't they? Just a couple of years ago, they were regarded mostly as pricey toys rather than gadgets that one actually needed. But as they are getting cheaper by the day and as the number of apps optimized for tablet use rises, more and more people now own one. But not all tablets are made equal, and it is our duty to inform you which ones are actually worth getting. In fact, today we'll tell you which are the best tablets that launched in 2012...
12 December PhoneArena Awards 2012: Worst TabletSlowly but surely, we're on our way to announcing the best smartphone and tablet of 2012. But before we get to them, we'd like to take a look at the other end of the spectrum. Today, we'll talk about tablets - bad tablets, to be more specific, namely the tablets that we were most disappointed by this year. Yeah, we know that nearly all of the tablets we reviewed over the past 12 months were given decent scores, but a couple of them were just meh. Care to know what they are? Okay, enough talking then.
11 December PhoneArena Awards 2012: Best CameraphonePhones aren't just for calling anymore, and we bet that even your grandparents are well aware of that. Instead, taking photos is what smartphones are used for the most, as recent surveys have shown. And that should come as no surprise: most high-end smartphones can capture images so good that they are well capable of replacing an entry-level point and shoot camera. Therefore, including a 'Best Cameraphone' category in our PhoneArena Awards of 2012 seems quite logical to us...
