Poll results: Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Google Nexus 7 (2013) are our readers' top smartphone and tablet

74

That the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is among the most popular smartphones worldwide is something we have no doubts about. After all, over 10 million units already have already left the company's warehouses. And people do seem to like it quite a lot, judging by the number of votes the Note 3 received in our recent poll. For those who missed it, last week we asked our readers which phone deserved to be named smartphone of the year, and Samsung's phablet got almost a quarter of the votes – 24.31%, to be more specific. With 12.96% of the votes, the LG G2 came in second place, followed closely by the Google Nexus 5, which collected 12.87% of our readers' votes.

When it comes to tablets, however, it is not Samsung at the top spot. As it turns out, our readers' favorite slate this year is the 2013 edition Google Nexus 7, which settled at the top after amassing 25.29% of the votes. Samsung's 2014 edition Galaxy Note 10.1 came in second place with 18.24% of our users' votes. Unsurprisingly, Apple's iPad Air is in the top three as well. It received 16.37% of the votes, which got it the bronze. 

Check out the complete poll results below for more on which phones and tablets won our users' hearts this year.
