    Category tip for next year: BEST PHONE THAT STILL HOLDING UP. The phone from the previous year that still a excellent deal in terms of features, performance and price. Great video as always

    Sad to see companies like HTC, blackberry, and now LG no longer in the mobile space.

    From winning the smartphone of the year a few years back to not even getting a mention, Oneplus has had a steep fall...expectedly so!

    I would definitely like to see “old phones that are still worth it” and based on that your educated guesses on which current phones people should buy if they only replace them every 4-10 years.

    I’m a diehard Apple fan and I absolutely love my 13 Pro Max, but I agree about the S21 Ultra being the best design. That thing looks SICK.

    Sad to see how hard OnePlus has fallen but love to see Google Pixel having a comeback year!

    Samsung's 2021 smartphone line up was much better than we expected. Especially, Z filp 3 / Z fold 3 both are great and high quality. and plus s21 ultra was definately high-end in all dimentions, only phone that can compete Iphone

    Thanks for "in memory of LG phones" moment. Never owned one but they always interested me. Quad dacs and flexible g flexes, second screens on a cases and a lot more unique things LG brought to a market deserve to be memorized.

    It would be nice to see the "Best Ecosystem" award. Smart devices arent just phones anymore, the buds/pods, the watches, tags etc work really well with the same brands. And the lack of some devices might make an ecosystem hard to choose. It would be nice to see this category as well next year as we see more and more companies come up with new devices. Fingers crossed for a Pixel Watch.

    Love my s21 ultra no regrets as I leave Apple behind for now. So happy to see it came on top!

    Went for the iPhone 13 mini for the very reason, and for me with moderate usage the battery lasts throughout the day. Even though I think Samsung phones are overpriced especially for a market like India, I won't lie by saying that I didn't enjoy the S21 being endorsed in all the Korean dramas. But, the screen size is too big for me.

    Every year I'm blown away by the increase in phone functionality and performance. This was a very good insight into the technological progress.

    My hot take: Make the blind smartphone test winner its own award category. It deserves a special dedicated appreciation. Call it the People's Choice or something. Hoping to also see sustainability making an appearance. Great vid overall

    As a iPhone 13 mini owner, feel so proud about this decision! So happy with this purchase so far! This phone can’t go wrong be it any situation or use! Will be gutted if mini is discontinued going forward.

    I got the 13 mini a month ago and it’s great, upgraded from the 7 so the screen is actually bigger and everything about it is massively improved!

    I personally think the Iphone 13 Mini should've been mentioned in the most improved phone category.
