Samsung comes out on topSamsung comes out on top

Samsung has picked up up the Smartphone of Year award at the 2013 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, The Korean company left in its wake Apple and its iPhone, HTC Droid DNA, Nokia Lumia 920, and Samsung Galaxy Note II.

The accolade was one of four major awards for Samsung, compared with none for Apple.

The S2 beat the iPhone 4s at last year’s show. Samsung was device manufacturer of the year and Apple won the tablet category.

In the 2013 entry level/feature phone category Nokia’s Asha won out over three other Nokia phones and the Samsung C3312. Google’s Nexus 7 won the tablet race.

Samsung not only won the best smartphone award- the prize with most kudos. They won best device manufacturer and best Best Mobile Enabled Consumer Electronics Device for the Galaxy camera, and Best Mobile Infrastructure for Smart LTE Networks . They also won the CTO Choice award for their LTE technology.

In the past year Samsung has had to defend its reputation against copycat charges in the American courts. But outside of north America Samsung enjoys widespread admiration.
