Marco M, 04 Feb 2013Yes, a benchmark tool, but real life game performance and it's nothing compared to the Tegra 3... morejudges dont just go for powerful specs only... u do know that right...? Its how it changes the mobile world, the features it gives, popularity, innovation etc... those things are also considered when judges chose the best phone not just because how powerful it is... just remember that

Dual core kraits such as the Motorola Droid RAZR HD (MAXX) and M both performed similarly as the S3. The quad-core kraits (Nexus 4 and Optimus G) with their Adreno 320 overpowered everything in real life performance. Though Tegra Zone still have an advantage.
Faisal Hyder, 04 Feb 2013DrOid DNA for Mobile and I-PAD for Tablet.u do realise note 2 is considered a phone right? read the article properly.
Marco M, 04 Feb 2013Phone category: Padfone 2, Optimus G, Nexus 4? RAZR HD MAXX? Not as much power as the above ... morelol S3 shouldnt be on the list? do you even know how many awards it had and how popular it is? Even if your not a fan of S3, atleast be honest and state a proper reason.... obviously your just a hater towards samsung.
Thephonegeek, 04 Feb 2013Droid DNA, L920 for mobile. N7, Note 10.1 for Tablet.droid DNA did nothing to create a big impact in 2012, fanboism put a aside, S3 was pretty much a benchmark tool to compare with other phones. S3 has a very good chance being a winner in my opinion. For the tablets, i Believe galaxy note 10.1 had alot of newer features compared with the rest but it was a little bit laggy at launch, but who knows.
EosAkroyiali, 04 Feb 2013Is GSMA in any way affiliated/associated to/with GSM Arena or vice versa?GSMA are the initials of GSMArena. You must be new here.
mufc, 04 Feb 2013xperia z???????it's 2012, not 2013
I wonder where are all the Nexus devices (except 7)
Nexus 4 > SGS3, iPhone 5 and all others
Nexus 10 is on par with iPad4
Padfone 2, Optimus G, Nexus 4?
RAZR HD MAXX? Not as much power as the above three, but more juice to actually use the phone. All of the above + LG Optimus 4X and HTC one X would be better options over the dreadfull S3
Ainol Novo 9 is a great choice. Brilliant screen, power, RAM and battery. Granted, it wasn't available in 2012 yet. So if justice is on their side, the Transformer would definetly take that one.
mufc, 04 Feb 2013xperia z???????The nominee is for the top phones of 2012. Xperia Z is a new phone.
How come Nexus 4 is not among the nominations for best smartphone of the year?
