The Global Mobile Awards form part of the MWC routine each year and this has become a major thing since the past 18 editions. The awards are basically granted to the products and devices of the previous year because the entry deadline was in the year 2013 and the event takes place in February 2014.
The award for the Best Smartphone was given away to HTC One which might come as a bit of a surprise for us considering that the other nominees for the same award were iPhone 5s, LG G2, Lumia 1020 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The result of this title at last year’s MWC turned out to be less surprising with the award being granted to Samsung Galaxy SIII.
The best smartphone award under the category sub-$150 wholesale price was given away to the Nokia Lumia 520 which proudly received the Best Low-Cost Smartphone title. This was much expected since the other competitors in this league were Lenovo A390T, the Samsung Galaxy Young, the Sony Xperia E, and the Xiaomi Hongmi and they all had one thing in common that they all featured the Android OS. Most of you would also be interested in knowing the results for tablets and here we have the Best Mobile Tablet award going to Apple iPad Air which comes as no surprise at all and was quite evident.
These were the three most prominent awards at the event and though there were numerous categories out there, it was not possible to enlist all of them here. Nokia received another award for its Nokia 105 for the Best Entry-level or Featurephone. The Nokia 105 was running against its own counterparts including the Nokia 208, the Nokia 515, the Nokia Asha 210, and the Nokia Asha 503.
