Nokia in the list with products that beyond expectation like 41 MP camera in a phone and a feature phone that is much smarter than WP 7.5 just lack of multi-tasking...

Samsung and android are the winners. According to audist, ANDROID will be the king for next 5 years. It is funny how paid users by nokia try to promote the lumia device on gsmarena, a phone with zero sales worldwide. Android is the king, and samsung is NUMBER 1 for next 5 years. So, wait new Galaxy S4. This will be the 2013 phone of the year.

Yes, the Samsung Galaxy S3 really deserves its place as the most popular phone of 2012. I have one, and I can say it is a very, very good device. The display is great, with vivid colors and excelent resolution.

Congrats to Samsung. Enjoy the S3's popularity while it last. 2013 will be all about Nokia and their new WP8 devices. It will be the most sought- after devices and its popularity will make people forget about the Galaxy line.
