Do you guys realise HTC and Sony haven't even included, probably because their sales are nothing more than an embarrassment?

Keep it real, mobile phone market is driven by China and India, that's why Chinese companies made a huge progress

Both Samsung and Apple product are getting dull.
Same design every year and just plain boring.
Most developers don't op for Exynos based Galaxy series because Samsung doesn't want to release the info about the hardware and make the developer very upset. Same goes to the consumers.
I'm using S3. I will going with Sony or HTC or Nexus series next time in the future.

Add some flashy subtitles to equation and you'll get 15fps at best. I'm not "blaming" anyone, I just find it strange that 2011 ARM CPU can't play something that 2009 laptop CPU plays with loads under 30%. All this battery efficiency is fine and dandy but not when you can't get the job done because of that.

Amazes me when some Americans complain about the price tag of high end smartphones when most of them purchase it from their carrier. Over here most people purchase unlocked smartphones although it's priced more than one's monthly salary. I guess those Americans who have been winning about price tags should go for Chinese phones instead of dreaming to get iphones or other flagship devices... or maybe just get a job.

Any manufacturers can label and market their phones as smartphones. The term of smartphone was little vague during that period. Do some research before saying anything apart from your kitchen. :)

Chinese phones are more practical and inexpensive. They don't make super fast phones with small battery. That's why HTC isn't on the list anymore.

I don't even know how could Apple name it a smartphone (not that the new ones are) when you could do nothing with it. No real bluetooth (not that now it's fixed), no multitask, crap quality materials (plastic), no 3g, no memory card, crappy screen resolution, no apps. Yeah, i really think it was original:-J.
