Throwback Monday: Which manufacturer had the best-looking flagship in 2011? (poll results)

Throwback Monday: Which manufacturer had the best-looking flagship in 2011? (poll results)
For those of you who didn't know, PhoneArena has been around for over a decade now. That's a lot of history, so naturally, we do get sentimental every once in a while. We're sure the vets among our readers do, too. And so, with 2015 about to run its course, we thought we'd go for a throwback kind of poll and take you on a trip back mobile history — all the way back to the now distant 2011.

We asked you to state your preference in terms of 2011's crop of flagships from major manufacturers, and specifically in terms of aesthetics. As these kind of topics often do, the poll sparked quite some debate in the comment section, and prompted nearly 1,600 of our readers to respond. Voting is now closed, and we've got them results ready to share.

With a comfortable lead on the rest, Sony's — or back then, Sony Ericsson's — Xperia arc S grabbed a little over 26% of the votes, followed by the Nokia Lumia 800 with a share of about 19%. Third spot goes to Apple's iPhone 4S, which is actually a favorite with the team here at PhoneArena.com, closely followed by the aforementioned Xperia arc S. Next up, we've got the Samsung Galaxy S II (~12%), the HTC Sensation (~9%), and the Motorola DROID RAZR (~9%). LG's Optimus 2X was last on the list, with a sub 1% share of the votes.
