I agree! The Galaxy Nexus was such a hit especially abroad! I actually thought the SGSII was the bestseller since it created such a buzz but I somehow knew the Nexus would beat it!.:) What I DON'T get is why the iphone (all iphones) is listed as 2nd ( or is even listed at all!).:P Hahahahaha. Of course that's just my opinion.:D I read your reviews when there's a phone that I want that will be shipped here in Manila.:)

Had the Samsung Galaxy S2 but sold it due to battery performance issues. I did purchase a Galaxy Note and got the iPhone 4S when it was launched through Smart. I'd say it's the best of both worlds.

Motorola Droid RAZR #1 for me. design and feature wise pati build and quality also considering the price, hardware specs same as with the galaxy nexus. OS lng lamang ng galaxy nexus dto pero ayaw ko kaseng mag suffer sa mga bugs ng ICS kaya mas ok sakin ang RAZR. :)

I have tried Blackberry and Windows 7 and in my opinion the BB 9900 and the Nokia Lumia 800 would be on the runners-up list.  Not enough to get into the top 5.  What I considered here apart from the hardware and software is the ecosystem, which translates to better usability.  Android and iOS are way ahead in this aspect, hence, the inclusion of the phones in the list. The Note is a fine device, and I would also put it in the runners-up list.  The size however is just too big, which does not make it an ideal phone, and it suffers from an identity crisis so to speak :)  But thanks for sharing your thoughts :)

with due all respect to the author, these might be all personal for him (or probably based on trendings and other blogs). imho usability, innovation, market infiltration, user experience (i.e. feedbacks), pricing, connectivity, battery life, and the list goes on and on for a device to hit the top. Windows mobile OS and even RIM OS did not fare better in terms of market infiltration (aka market share) so imho, it would fare considerable as "top"

had galaxy s2... found the battery performance bit off but after doing some flashing (using the stock rom's at sammobile) and tweaking my preferences (i.e. disabling push, background syncs as I do not need them), my SGS2 already worked as it promised in 2 days standby (13-16 hours moderate wifi)

well even the monster Note was not included which in my opinion sits at the top of the heap

imho thou not a fan of larger screens, galaxy note does fare in its usability. 5 inch screen is really necessary for moderate note taking.
