Samsung Galaxy S III wins EISA's Best Mobile Phone 2012-2013 award

The other handset which has taken part in this gala-ceremony is the HTC One S. HTC's device has won the European Social Media Phone 2012-2013 award. Among the key features that have impressed the jury are the 'micro arc oxidation' technology used to treat the aluminum casing of the phone, AMOLED screen and 8MP camera.
Nokia's PureView Pro technology introduced with the 808 PureView was also recognized as the European Mobile Photo Achievement 2012-2013. A well-deserved award, we would say.
Do you, guys and gals, agree with these awards? Would you put some other handset/technology instead of those chosen by EISA?

Wow is that a real surprise or what? Of course it was going to win, it's the best & most powerful phone out since it's release. It's a stunning looking phone in person, the screen is vibrant, & the performance it has with ICS is top notch. What else can you ask for? Just wait until Jelly Bean hits it officially, it will be like a new phone. 100 times better than ICS. Congrats to Samsung & Android.

"What else can you ask for?" No TouchWiz :)

Actually, the only problem I have with touchwiz now is the stock launcher, which can be easily changed, and the toggles in the notifications aren't customizable. Other than that, all those extra features are pretty good.

Latest and brand new products will only be accepted if they have been available for detailed testing before June 1st (latest delay) by at least 5 member magazines of the Panel concerned. In addition, awarded products must also be for sale to the general public no later than October 1st in the year of the Awards in at least 10 European countries.

Wouldn't it make more sense to award a phone at the end of the year, and only title it "2012?" I mean, we have no idea what's in store for 2013.

2013? Why not the single year of 2012? To say that it's going to be the best phone of 2013 can be a longshot considering how fast technology develops in addition to how fast OEMs spit out new flagship phones. I definitely agree with the 2012 though.

I have always had apple products and i was up for an upgrade and i wanted to try something different. I upgraded to the galaxy III. Lets just say i had so many problems that i returned the phone. The phone kept dropping calls and rebooting for no reason. The interface is fast buy very glitchy. The case cover from Samsung started to come apart after on week. I traded for an iphone 4 and had no issues. Samsung needs to polish their product before releasing them. I got the latest and greatest Samsung phone and it still doesn't compete with a two year old design.
