Some Android devices receive EISA awards for 2013-2014

Some Android devices receive EISA awards for 2013-2014
The EISA (the European Imaging and Sound Association) has announced the winners of its awards for 2013-2014, and many of the winners were popular Android models. Considering its global market share in the smartphone industry, perhaps it is no surprise that Korean OEM Samsung was the big winner of the night. Sammy took home three trophys (do we call them EISAS?). The Samsung Galaxy S4 mini won the 2013-2014 European Socia Media award while big brother (Samsung Galaxy S4) was presented with the European Green Phone award. The European Photo Innovation trophy for 2013-2014 went to the Samsung Galaxy NX.

Other winners included the HTC One as EISA's European Advanced Smartphone. The European Consumer Smartphone 2013 – 2014 title was given to the Twiggy-ish Huawei Ascend P6 and the European Tablet award was presented to the Sony Xperia Tablet Z. And no, Neil Patrick Harris did not host a televised show. And as far as we can tell, none of the winners thanked their agent, co-workers and parents for winning the award.

In my opinion, HTC and Sony have been by far the most improved OEMs of 2013

Sadly PA give too much credit towards Samsung because they won more awards but HTC, Huawei and Sony won major ones.

And PA don't want to even compare the Xperia Z camera with other handset.

these awards seem to satisfy everyone. people apparently acknowledge how the devices deserve their respective recognition.

Omg phonearena, stop twisting the fact that Samsung lost the mobile categories award, the big fat prize has gone to HTC one and the second runner up goes to Huawei p6, yet the third prize is not even the Samsung flagship phone but the mini version instead... And the tablets part? Samsung made the most android tablets yet none of them manage to beat sony tablets... If you say Samsung won 3 trophy, sony wins 5 trophy in overall... Talk about bias...

If the best advance smartphone goes to gs4, phonearena will title it as 'galaxy s4 win the best smartphone' award, instead of 'some android device. From anonymous

If the Lumia 1020 were available in Europe, the results would have been notably different (per the linked article).
