    Honestly a horrible list. Not to be rude but it just seems like you took the latest and greatest and made them the "Best" of the years. Most of the phones on here have been out less then half a year. How on earth could you call them the Best of 2012? Just my two cents though.
    we will drive after a couple beers an NOT make a federal case out of it

    Because the newer phones typically have better specs.

    I might get booed, but I still think the Verizon Galaxy Nexus is the best device out there. The sheer amount of development for this phone is insane and it's STILL going strong. This phone never gets old and stale. Spec-wise it's been trampled to death though by every phone out there, but to me it still performs very well despite the crappy battery life. I haven't been jealous of anything newer yet.

    I personally think it's a pretty good list. Not because the phones are newer or anything but because each of those phones brought something new to the game. The all brought something that made them stand out and made them top sellers.

    Calling it a horrible list without sharing your perspective is a bit trollish my friend. I have zero problem if you disagree with our choices, but please share which phone's you like better and why. These five phones were chosen by several of us at HQ after much discussion. I can definitely see several valid arguments for different phones being on this list. Please weigh in with more than your "two cents" because we want a whole $buck-fifty worth of input!

    I like your choices. I do think a lot of great phones were released in 2012. There are all kinds of options at different price points to serve all different purposes.

    I wouldn't put the Droid DNA in the phablet category. It's definitely more of a phone form factor. The additional 0.2 inch display diagonal over the GS3, with possibly less bezel on the sides, doesn't put it in phablet category. Sure the GNote was at 5" but keep in mind the aspect ratio was different making it wider in the hand. The GNote 2 has the same aspect ratio as the DNA but a difference of 0.5" diagonal over the DNA is pretty large.

    There has never been a Nexus phone that I liked. Even if you go back to the G1, the screen resolution was too low (my WinMo devices were already 480x640 for a number of years and there was no going back), and the OG Droid had a keyboard which I had tried in a mobile years earlier and new that wasn't the form factor for me. The Nexus One had the Snapdragon S1 processor which was terrible - by far the worst of that generation with a 65nm die size (more heat, worse battery life) and lousy GPU (the Adreno 200 was bad). The 1GHz OMAP from TI and 1GHz Hummingbird both had a 45nm die size and much better GPU's, with the one on the Hummingbird being the best. Too bad Samsung didn't know how to integrate a GPS on their phones. As far as Nexus's go we then had the Nexus S which, for some dumb reason didn't have a notification LED - forget that! Then the Galaxy Nexus came out. Nice but battery life wasn't great and it was a very unreliable phone on Verizon making it useless. Also, it's too bad Nexus devices moved to OLED. Everyone should stay with LCD. I have a Maxx HD. Yeah, current OLED tech is very good and the screens look fine and are not bad outside but still, LCD uses less power for a given brightness. Also, Nexus devices need MicroSD slots and what dev doesn't want a real MicroHDMI port!!! I'll take better hardware and wait a little longer for my OS update. Especially since ICS - Android has really grown up!
