Poll results: IFA is almost upon us, what are you most excited about?

Poll results: IFA is almost upon us, what are you most excited about?
On Monday, just before the first round of IFA 2014 events kicked off, we sought to gauge your expectations for the event. What were you most excited about? Was it the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 4? Or Sony's flagship refresh in the Xperia Z3? Heck, judging by the reception the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact was treated to, we felt positive the Z3 Compact would be on your minds, too. 

Well, by now, most of these devices are a reality, so you've got the opportunity to contrast and compare: were you expectations met? Only you can answer that question, and, of course, the few people that voted for Huawei's Ascend Mate 7 will have to wait an hour or two longer to be in a position to do the same. The rest, however, can do so now, so let's get to the numbers.

The majority (53.12%) were, of course, most excited about the Galaxy Note 4. Coming up at second place with 11.41% is the dynamic duo, Microsoft and Nokia, followed by the Sony Xperia Z3 (10.34%) and Xperia Z3 Compact (9.89%). Look below to see how the rest ranked. Anybody surprised?

I'm most excited about...

Samsung's Galaxy Note 4
Sony's Xperia Z3
Sony's Xperia Z3 Compact
Sony's Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact
HTC's rumored, 64-bit Desire 820
Whatever Microsoft/Nokia has in store
Huawei's Ascend Mate 7
ASUS' expected smartwatch
Other (I'll let you know in the comments)

Flop of the year is in third place. The Z3 was the biggest disappointment of 2014 thus far.

Well not really, but we did expect more from them. Anyways, going for the Note Edge this time.

The Z3 is not bad at all. Although I really like the new Notes. Personally I am really interested in all the new Android Wear devices. Sony has a nice one with good specs and features

Really? It looks like Z3 is better than S5 and alpha, So doesn't that make S5 and alpha the biggest disappointment in history of flagship smartphone .

Half a year later gap between the S5 and Z3. Alpha isn't supposed to be their flagship, as the name suggests a test device. Joke is on you. ;)

I believe that Motorola is holding it's own even completely independent from IFA. They just happened to be scheduled for the same day. I for one am not even remotely interested in anything listed in the poll above, and I'm very interested to see official details on the new Moto X, S, and 360.

What happened to the Note Edge?

I agree with that. The poll is rigged, they divided the Sony devices in 3 but Samsung also presented 3 devices and they only put one there. Unfair poll I would say.
