Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ win "Best Smartphone" award at MWC Shanghai

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ took home the "Best Smartphone" award at this year's Asia Mobile Awards (AMOs) held each year at Mobile World Congress Shanghai. This is perhaps the most prestigious accolade granted to the 2017 flagship pair to date, as the two handsets could not compete at MWC Barcelona due to being announced at a later stage.
MWC 2017 Shanghai has been organized in collaboration with GSMA, and it runs from June 28 through July 1. The Asia Mobile Awards were held on the first evening of the ongoing event. In a press statement released today, Samsung said that a panel of journalists, analysts and market influencers assessed the candidates based various criteria such as physical design, user experience, innovation, value for money, and so on.
The award was accepted by Mr. Tong Wang, Executive Vice President of Samsung Electronics China. As a whole, Samsung Electronics is receiving a lot of recognition throughout this week. Prior to the latest prize, the company's "Ostrich Dream" ad bagged a whopping seven awards at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, the biggest event of its kind in the advertising industry.

No surprise here. I haven't seen anything yet, rumoured or announced that can touch this. Definitely not the iPhone 8 Bankz whacks off about. Only two phones left that can snatch the phone of the year award away from the GS8 is the pixel xl 2 and the Note 8. I have a strange neither will quite match it though. It's too good!

Well, looks like occasionally lagging, which every computer does, isn't as big of a deal as some immature trolls try to make it look...

Well done Sammy the S7 edge won best smartphone at MWC for 2 years in a row in 2016 and 2017. Now the S8 duo won best smartphone at AMO's :D Reviewers and mobile award shows always prove the Sammy is at the top of its game.

Winning awards for a phone with a half baked interface? The Samsung sheep are blinded by Samsung marketing.
