Anonymous, 23 Feb 2015The reason I don't take comments on Gsmarena comments section serious is based on the fact tha... morethese people can't understand, that it is not about the best the newest or the most liked phones it is about the most searched for.....and believe me more than 15% interest is from IOS users who troll on samsung pages....if ifanboys where to ignore samsung news and would stop trolling it would look totaly diferent
HTC and The other brands are rare in most of the asian markets while samsung has most of the world coverd same with apple.But still seing an apple product in a mid to low class population is a rarity.
smartiee, 22 Feb 2015Fake survey. there is no HTC and sony? HTC ONE M8 is still the best phone!Fake survey? HTC and Sony not in the list?lets be real here,how many HTC and Sony phones have you seen in real life?
The reason I don't take comments on Gsmarena comments section serious is based on the fact that most visitors are half baked techies,mostly with half baked opinions,so because your favourite phones are not among the trendy ones,you all get off with conspiracy theories,if you don't have any business on a tech site,go bake a cake or something..
Samsung is the only trending smartphone right now? that to top 5 models are of the samsung.. I doubt. Nexus 6, oneplus, HTC? is no where in the list. ASUS zenfone 5 is mentioned which is released 1 year back. Be genuine.. there are lakhs of people who rely on this website for genuine feedback.
Shubham-Yadav, 22 Feb 2015They don't 'choose' phones.
The phones are sorted on the number of hits their pages get. G... moreThen there are dedicated people clicking links for these phones.
Anyway my comments are true for their other articles on Samsung/BB. I feel they are now pretty much biased.
Lumia 930 user, 22 Feb 2015Do somebody knows why the user rating in GSM arena is totally different from this top 10 trend... moreWell, that's because the "Current Rankings/By user ratings" are fanboy driven results. No one cares about or pays attention to those ratings as they truly mean nothing. Any registered member can visit the page of any device and score it all 1's if he/she dislikes it for whatever reason.
The "Current Rankings/By daily interest", on the other hand, is what really proves which devices consumers are actually interested in. No matter how much members or non-members dislikes a device, they can't take back the page hit that registers on the "Daily Hits" counter upon visiting the device's page. So, whether you're there to bash or praise, interest is reflected. Lol.
No surprise here:

That's how Samsung phones go on the top of the list.
epos, 22 Feb 2015Its no secret GSM love everything Samsung. Used to think GSM was the most unbiased mobile ... moregsmarena is still the most unbiased tech site. You should blame yourself for having a weakness in accepting the truth.
Wow! Samsung spends a lot on digitalarletimhh for their 'not so good phones but overpriced'
MrET, 23 Feb 2015No, Sony fanboys down vote all other brands and vote 3x10 for Sony phones. Sony also pays peop... moreSir.... I also heard the similar case from my friend who lives in Australia, but it is not like Sony phones are bad or anything, probably has to do with trend. My buddy in Australia told me that most people are using Samsung phones, with S- series being the prevalence. Also quite a lot using iPhone. Some people still use Sony made though, but not that touch screen ones, the featured ones released ten years ago they are using.
Where in Europe are you mind me ask?
John Jon, 22 Feb 2015This is the reality we live in. People who buy iPhones generally do not check out its spec she... moreThey don't have too check stats- Apple users. Their OS runs fluently on minimal h/w, so why change...? I'm a BB and Win Phone user, those two OS's also run smoother than Android.
No, Sony fanboys down vote all other brands and vote 3x10 for Sony phones. Sony also pays people to do this.
I live in western Europe and I haven't seen someone with a Sony phone for months. They are almost non existant here. Also their build quality isn't even close to perfect. Sony camera sensors are good, but they have no idea how to make the software . The S4 and xperia Z use the same sensor, but the S4 makes far better pictures with it.

Do somebody knows why the user rating in GSM arena is totally different from this top 10 trendig phones? hmm...
Ya like galaxy a5 is more trending then s6,or its is the phone which is on sale and only samsung phones are good while they make junk and very pricy phone. Come on gsm team play fair please
