    So Samsung again takes Smartphone of the year at the Global Mobile Awards for 2013. From the start of the GS1 they're on quite a roll and don't seem to be letting up. I think this is the first year where Apple didn't win a single award. Interesting.

    Best Smartphone: Samsung Galaxy S3

    Device Manufacturer of the Year: Samsung

    Best Mobile Infrastructure: Samsung Electronics for Smart LTE Networks

    Outstanding Overall Mobile Technology – The CTO's choice: Samsung Electronics for Smart LTE Networks

    Best Mobile Enabled Consumer Electronics Device: Samsung Electronics for Samsung GALAXY Camera

    Best Mobile Tablet: Google and Asus for Nexus 7

    Judges Choice – Best Overall Mobile App: Waze

    Best Feature phone or entry level phone: Nokia Asha 305


    COMPLET LIST OF WINNERS

    Yeah, Sammy has really made some serious progress in only a span of 3 short years. The difference in experience using a GS3 and a GS1 is MASSIVE. Congrats to all the winners.

    Shorest refresh Cycle of any new product - iPad 3/4
    Most devices restricted with OS upgrades for no reason - iPhone 4, iPad 2
    Device delivered before the hardware was ready - iPad 3


    I am KIDDING Apple fans, only KIDDING....well not about the iPad 3 refresh.

    I know I bought one for my wife and she loves it...seems Apple felt it wasn't amazing enough until it had an upgraded dock connector...which just had to be done ASAP.

    Well gee willikers.....if this award ceremony I never heard of says Samsung is the best, than by golly I should run out and get me one!

    :rolleyes:

    Politics...nothing more. There isn't a major award show/event out there isn't mired in politics.

    Congrats to Samsung - HTC was Device Maker of the Year in 2011....oops.

    The retina screen was great but the processor couldn't match the graphics and screen resolution increase. It's still a good tablet for those who don't care or don't notice the lag.

    Sure - because I have a vested interest in whether Apple wins an award at this thing or not :rolleyes:

    I simply think all these award events are worthless....

    But like I said - congrats to Samsung ;)

    Im sure the response would have been different had it been Apple that won.

    As I said, sour grapes.

    Nah - still wouldn't mean anything. I hadn't even heard of these awards until someone used Samsung's win as an argument that the GS3 was better than the iPhone 5.....

    Believe what you want.....I use both (Nexus 4 personal, iPhone 5 for work) and like both (though I'm a little peeved at my Nexus 4 at the moment).

    Keep your bias to yourself.

    I don't know what's more embarrassing, the fact that they actually have a mobile Oscar awards or that people even know about it.

    I really wish I could hear the conversations and discussions at Apple HO about this. Gotta wonder what they're thinking and doing.

    What's an iPad 3?

    According to Apple, it doesn't exist.

    Great, another awards show that I couldn't care less about. It ranks right up there with the Oscars, Emmys, Tonys, Grammys, etc.

    Hm, I wonder if you'd be saying the same thing if Apple won these awards. I do wonder! :rolleyes:

    I have a feeling it'd matter in that case.

    Ha! indeed. :p

    Now, the award is NOTHING. NOTHING THEY TELL YOU! :mad: (until Apple win something again, then it's all unicorns and butterflies) ;):D

    DOMINATING!​


    EDIT: And the iPad 2 got some love on the same awards - which also mattered.

    Keep stoking the fanboy war fires....

    I wonder when fans of both platforms will actually be able to have a logical, thought-provoking discussion on these forums without it erupting into some rager about how Android is the most advanced OS because of "true multitasking".....

    I'm extremely close to swearing off MacRumors forums all together....
