@ Kal -
well i didnt say nokia 6500 slider was nominated i said it should have won the award cuz in any way its better than the w910 ... this is not the first time nokia made a perfect slider and 6500 sliders stainless steel design and rich looks will take out the w 910 easily ... ok lets say that w910 is better than any phone but how could it be ? ... there are so many that can take out a phone like the w910 ... this award giveaways are just marketing tricks ... the real deal is to give away awards using fans votes for the appropriate mobiles not just to ask judges and give it away like throwing a piece of garbage into a garbage truck ... :-)
W910 is no way best. Agree. Please note that there are some confusion.
Nokia "6500 Classic" was nomineted. Its not the "6500 slide".
It's true 6500 slide is not as good as G600 or Viewty. But does it mean W910 is better than G600/Viewty? 6500 slide is way better than W910. There are many SEs, Nokias, LGs or Samsungs that could easily have won the award, but not W910. I agree that SE might have paid some sort of 'bonus' to the judges for declaring the W910 as the best phone. It's a marketing scam! Shame to GSM Association.
6500 Slider?? Its just a candybar.(Nokia finally learned to make a thin phone. Kudos to them).
Some of you talking as if not W910, nokia could have won the award. I completely disagree. 6500 looks dull in front of Viewty or G600 in features and all. Stop acting like a kiddo.
s.e. w910 the best handset in the world this is a big joke for everyone ... need well balanced options cool quality camera with flasher well balanced application support great music quality on headset and external speaker , Carl Zeiss optics , 3.15 mp cam auto focus then the nokia 6500 slider overruns the w910 and the best thing is its offerd for the same prize as the s.e. w910 ... the award should be givesn for a handset such as the nokia 6500 slider cuz its the best ... s.e. w910 dont deserve this position s.e. w910 is even too low in performance and quality display plus camera than the nokia 5610 xpress music slider ... this is a big fake decision by the judges who ever they are ... they should see the real phones sometimes this is like taking money from s.e. and giving the award to the w910 ... cuz in all of our minds we know the truth that w910 is not the one for this year ... :-)
Hello, i'd like to know who was awared in 2006 2005 and 2004? if SE fan say that the difference is not big, this mean they have a difference in colour.
Dude i think the best phone should deserve something new and it should pocess certain some qualities. Comparing w910 with nokia 5610, from the screen resolution to its music player sony is nowhere on the screen. The only advantage sony has is its headphones provided with its handset,i think nokia and other sellers should change their types. For me sony is an expensive garbage....
im 16 years Old ..Respect Me!
NOKIA just becuase there best selling does not mean there the best in everything else
SE are the Kings of Music and Camera Phones!
its a True fact
Nokia just copy SE
N73 = copied K800i
3250 = Copied W800i
Nokia can not get a award for being the best selling
thats just a daft reason
SE overall i find more User Friendlyness and Entertaining and Multimedia featured and yet they dont let the owner down!
@matt, yeah watever you think about me does not matter,but the fact remains that NOKIA's 16 million colour screen is better than se's mediocre 256 k colour screen. And se w910 is not even close to be called a music phone, NOKIA 5310 is far better in music quality, music clearity and loudness. Yeah yeah yeah whatever,you guys did try to backup the k850i as same just to hide its failiure but look wat happend it went down big time and it took the hole k series with it. And just because w910 won the judges it does not mean it is the best. And one more thing stop calling me names because if i start your hole life will fell apart. @Gsmarena admins,with all do respect please stop being biased.You know wat i mean.
i think the the k810s 3.2 mxp is better than the k850i mate
Ok boys... SE made K850 and a camera quality isnt the best among other 5 megapixel ones... but its the first time when SE's camera phone its not the #1... dont you think?
agree to some extent on the sound quality mate but im affraid that there is no way se's are better for camera quality
carl zeis lensses are picture perfesct and when recording the fact that se are still using qvga and nokia are using vga says slightly different and aswell as that se's best camera phone the k850 was a flop for the company and the quality was rubbish
the camera takes dark photos and cannot handle dark surroundings as the xenon is not strong enough
nah im sorry mate the 16 mill makes a hell of a difference and im sorry but the 6500 has way better features you can update that handset more and it feels better
the clarity of the screen is more vibrant and far more sharper
SE have the best sound quality and Camera Quality and OS Quality with speed,memory,applications along with Multimedia such as Walkman Music Player and Cyber-shot Camera Module's
this is why SE always gets Phone of the Year!
like the W910i has got
unlike Nokia who put way to many features in a phone along with Symbian so it slows down and the 16M colours on the display drain the battery!
and tell me what kind of New person to a Mobile Phone could cope with what Nokia offers in the N-Series in terms of OS and Battery life and Multimedia and User friendlyness compared to N-Series
it would drive them mad ..if they had N-Series
N-Series = for Professionals who know how to use it
Walkman and Cyber-shot OS = User friendlyness
You wrong dude, there is no big diff betwen 262k and 16m. Most people cant see the diff. Please dont compare it on phone, but on ur PC Monitor.
That is just marketing issue to boost nokia price.
Just like old time when we talk about 16 polyphonic phone and 64 polyphonic phone.
Dont forget, 6500c maybe cheaper but w910 better in price/feature.
I think u the one who wrong dude...
there is quiet a major difference between 16 and 256 colors and both of the 6500's are priced cheaper than the w910 and k850 so i think yur wrong sweetie
im not commenting on the award im talking about all the people aguing about whos the best however i do not agree with the award because i do not belive a handset that was hampered by so many firmware and software issues should win and there are far far better handsets out there
explain to me what has the w910 got that the w850 before it did not apart from the shake shuffle feature
it is basicly the same handset just with a thinner look
the handsets that deserved to be nominated should have been
I agree with the previous comment, it all boils down to the individuals choice and personal experience as to which phone is "The Best" The GSM awards are base on many different factors. I'm a HTC Tytn2 user and to me there is no better phone on the market yet. The W910i is impressive but if you not a SE user you would never agree, same as if the N95 won the SE users wouldn't agree with he result. So please stop being childish people as this site is not for banter but for valid inputs and sharing of knowledge so we can assist each other by sharing!!!!
