What's your take?
Here's the article: http://x.co/hasE
"Best" is a subjective term and varies by user's needs
There is no "best" for everyone
While I most definitely agree, many on this forum declare various products "the best".
I find it interesting to hear why people choose and prefer what they do.
Therefore I thought I would post the article

I don't care.
I don't even know who wrote it. I didn't even read it.
Edit: oh, mobile world congress? So.
They also awarded this:
Best Mobile Tablet
Winner: Apple - Apple iPad 2
I already posted this a week ago: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1331724
I don't think anyone really liked the news.
It's kinda like the two years that Michael Jordan didn't win the MVP during the Bulls' championship runs.
My take is that it is amazing that Apple wins anything at Mobile World Congress given that they do not exhibit there, whereas Samsung does so there's no surprise. On other words, MWC attendees are likely to be a biased sample.
So how do you explain the iPhone 4 winning the previous year or the iPad 2 winning tablet of the year. Just give credit where it is due. The GS2 is just that good, it's only the Apple loyalist who can never see anything beyond an Apple product winning anything. Now the GS3 will raise the bar to new heights. It's just they way it is. RIM was the same thing, but now look where it is. Nobody is bigger than the market, and as always the market always moves faster than a single manufacturer.
You can bet the iphone 5 will be at least a 4 inch screen, and you can also bet all the Apple loyalist that bashed the 4 inch screen will find every reason to praise Apple's 4 inch screen. I'm betting the number one reason will be, wait for it......"Apple did it the right way."
That has nothing to do with these awards. All products are taken into account, whether you exhibit there, or not.
Would you be saying that if iPhone was rated best?
+1. Thank you.
If this thread was about "iPhone" being named "best" at something, I doubt we'd see people asking "who wrote it" or "best is just subjective."
When did the iPhone forum change in to the iPad forum?
If I were to have any doubts at all about my choice of cell phone after reading this article, they'd be quickly taken away by the same people voting angry birds rio best mobile app for consumers.
Whilst the SGS2 is undoubtedly a good Android phone, I wouldn't peg it as the best smartphone myself. I'd give that honour to the 4S (which is why I bought a 4S instead of an SGS2).
I couldn't care less how iPhone or SGII or HannahMontana Phone is rated
I pick a product that meets my needs best and let everyone else do the same
I don't feel the need to toot the horn of any product
My personal self worth or self esteem is not defined by how others view products I use
Blogs, awards, news sites, etc all rate and pontificate for their own self interest
If you like a product, buy it
If you don't, then buy something else
I don't feel the need for my choice to be rated "best" at anything
I just want it to work best for me
You must have me confused with a fanboy
I just use products and leave everyone else to make their own choices
Btw, 99% of forum sofware has an option to shorten hyperlinks, while allowing readers to actually see where said links lead to. I really wonder why people still think it's clever to use these ****** tinyurl type links.
I am not saying the GS2 is bad, or even that the iP4S is better. What I am saying is that the MWC attendees are likely to have a bias toward non-Apple products because they are attending a show at which Apple doesn't exhibit. When Apple products are considered and they win, I would argue they have done so in spite of a potential bias. The results of the MWC poll are just not that trustworthy....
I disagree. The iPad 2 won best tablet hands down. If there was such a bias here, I would think another tablet would have won. There are plenty of non Apple tablets to choose from. There really are. Whether Apple attends shouldn't matter, and I haven't been presented with evidence that it does. You are, however, entitled to your opinion, of course.
Let me put it another way: Do you think the votes would have changed if Apple had exhibited in a big way at MWC?
Probably not. Again, iPad did win the best tablet, also without Apple presenting. I think people were let down by the marginal upgrade that was the 4S. But that is all conjecture. Apple's products obviously have won and do continue to win here, regardless of their lack of presence. The 4S simply wasn;t one of them.
I guess we'll never know....
it's pretty obvious the SGS2 should have won
It is quicker than the 4S on day-to-day use and it is over 6 months older. Apple had no answer
apples presence is irrelevant. the iPhone 4 won the same award last year.

Both Apple and Samsung have put out award winning handsets. If either one of them (GS II, 4S) won I'd agree with it.
What was the criteria? All the new Android handsets have the same specs...
