Welcome to PhoneArena Awards 2013! Each year we're celebrating the most deserving devices by including them in one of our numerous award categories.

This is the place where you can easily check them all out in one place!

If you want MY opinion, iOS is rubbish. (DO NOT TAKE THIS PERSONALY, THIS IS SIMPLY MY OPINION)! Yes, I know, most of you prefer Apple, and yes Apple does have its advantages. Like the Apple app store, screenshots, and pretty good cameras on the iPhone's. However they cost quite a bit. I prefer Android/Amazon-Android because you can do anything. Such as: Use the 5 biggest APP stores (including Apple app store), easily root, get any App free, download ANYTHING online, mod games like gta and MCPE, and a whole lot more. So although Apple may be "sleek" and "well designed" your rather limited on Apple, whereas Android has unlimited freedom. Thank you for reading all of that! Lol! And I know it became a book not a comment. Lol again!

Gettin harder and harder to find an objective tech site. Everyone's being a shepherd these days. Sad and boring . .

GSMA isn't all that perfect either.

They seem a bit less biased than PhoneArena to me. Their review of the Asha phones justifies that

It's not the sites that are the problem, it's the users who are expecting every tech site to reflect their own preferences and bitch about 'bias' when they don't. Solution = get rid of the crappy, childish users. Anyone but anyone who whinges about 'bias' should be perma-banned IMO. Let other people have an opinioned without complaining that they are biased for goodness sake!

As a professional reviewing site PhoneArena is expected to be unbiased in its reviews. Sure, the site's reviewers can put out whatever they want, but they are expected to justify their views. If not, people have all the right to voice their opinions too.

They need to make a voting policy with "reviewers with justifications" and "users popularity" so that a device / app / technology can achieve a specific score for the award(s). iDevice is great but it's coming in every award.

Papa, he was critizicing the articles... and suggesting to make some sort of voting system including the users... Nowhere was he saying anything about the 5S... other than, even though they are great, they are appearing in way too many "awards"

I'm pretty sure I understood that. I just added my thoughts about the topic.

That is because it was designed to. People need to realize that these are there strictly for chaos, nothing realistic. They took a phone from each camp and posted it knowing they were appealing to all while pissing everyone off as well.

Then why act on it? Not you, but members in general?

That's because PA claims one thing, and does something else. Remember what happened with the Note 3 review darkk?

yesterday was a great day for phone arena. lol i understand we all have a right to post our opinions but we sometimes look foolish getting upset about something we have no control over. this site can post whatever it feels like whether the viewer likes it or not that's reality. but it still is interesting sometimes entertaining that people come here just to whine about the iPhone being mentioned so much.
