Poll results: Best smartphone of IFA 2014

The IFA electronics show might have been shadowed by Apple’s monumental event that brought us two new iPhones: the iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus, as well as a new category of wearables for the company with the Apple Watch, but Apple’s biggest rivals had an equally large showing a few days beforehand.

The IFA 2014 show brought us new high-end smartphone by companies like Samsung and Sony, and many others revealed great-looking phones. Nokia, Lenovo, Huawei, all brought innovation that will result in lots and lots of fresh new gadgets in stores in time for the busy Holiday shopping season.

Which one won your hearts, though? We asked you to pick a favorite between all new smartphones at IFA 2014 (we have also included Motorola smartphones that - technically - were not unveiled at IFA, but made an official appearance at the same time), and unsurprisingly, we have a winner: the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Samsung’s fourth generation phablet has gotten a sturdy and premium-looking metallic body, as well as top-notch hardware. Samsung’s Note Edge grabbed the second place with its futuristic wrap-around display, while Sony’s new handsets arrived at third and fourth places. Take a look at IFA 2014, the people’s favorites, as per votes, right below.

Why is Motorola part of this poll. They were never at IFA. They had an event at Chicago.

I couldn't care less, that post does nothing to change my mind. I'm not a dumb ass fanboy, I like both. Take that 12 year old mentality somewhere else kid.

Not that I agree with him but he replied to the best device at 'IFA'.... iPhone wasn't there at IFA. Apple had its own separate event.

Stop lying to yourself dude, more than half the people aren't buying the facade of mutuality you attempt to don. I'd say that's pretty immature of you.
