In a race that was extremely close sometimes, Huawei defeated Samsung for Maker of the Year. As we mentioned numerous times throughout 2015: Huawei, so hot now. They knocked it from the park with the Nexus 6P, as well as the Huawei Watch was a classy Android Wear device.

The most stunning result from this classification is the embarrassingly reduced amount of money of choose HTC. Sony and also OnePlus both got more votes than the once greatly prominent phone maker. HTC has a great deal of ground to make up in 2016.

Best Phone of 2015


The results for the very best Phone of 2015 were unsurprisingly unbalanced. Huawei’s Nexus 6P obtained virtually half of the complete ballots. The Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Motorola Moto X Pure Version, Samsung Galaxy S6, and LG V10 adhered to far behind. Our Best Android Phones positions have virtually the same order.

2015 was Huawei’s year. They went from being a largely undetected supplier (getting merely 11 votes in 2013), to Manufacturer of the Year and also making the Best Phone of 2015. Huawei is always discussing having a bigger existence in the US. It appears that might finally take place in 2016.

Best Smartwatch of 2015

For the 2nd year straight, the Moto 360 is your choice for the Ideal Smartwatch. The second version of the Moto 360 improved upon in 2013’s blockbuster as well as remained atop the positions. Huawei nearly swept the tool classifications, however the Huawei Watch dropped merely behind the Moto 360.

This was a large year for smartwatches. Last year, the initial Moto 360 had hardly any kind of competition for the title of Best Smartwatch. The ballot was much better this year. It will certainly be intriguing to see if Motorola could maintain their smartwatch prominence in 2016.

Best New App of 2015

As you would certainly expect, electing the Ideal New App was very dispersed out. Over 20 different applications got a minimum of one vote. Android Pay came out on top as the very best New App of 2015. Google lastly gave Android the mobile settlement solution we have actually been waiting for, and you guys enjoy it.

Other apps that got a decent amount of money of votes consist of Periscope, YouTube Music, Samsung Pay, HBO Now, Robinhood, as well as Microsoft Cortana. There were a surprisingly couple of write-in ballots. No app was written in even more than as soon as. It’s extremely tough to pick one app.

Best New Game of 2015

The Best New Game of 2015 is Fallout Shelter. The voting in this group was extremely close. With Fallout 4 being such a big bargain this year, it only makes feeling that After effects Shelter would win. Lara Croft GO was available in just an action behind at 2nd, adhered to by Celebrity Was: Galaxy of Heroes as well as Crossy Road.

Voting for Ideal New Online game was even much more dispersed out than the voting for Ideal New Application. Over 30 various titles received ballots. There are various games and lots of various kinds of gamers. It’s really difficult to direct at merely one game as the very best. In 2014 the award visited Monument Valley, an extremely various video game than Fallout Shelter. Following year it will visit a just as unique online game, we’re sure.

Biggest Fail of 2015

The last, but probably the most enjoyable classification, is Greatest Fail. This is where you reach pick that really messed up in 2015. In a landslide, the undesirable honor goes to the OnePlus ‘front runner killer’ campaign. OnePlus hyped up the OnePlus 2 as a ‘flagship deadly,’ however then the device did not have basic features like NFC. Again, a slogan returns to attack OnePlus.

Second place visits the HTC One M9. We already stated how HTC obtained so few elect Supplier of the Year, and also this shows why. HTC has a lot of job to do in 2016. Can be found in at third place is Motorola’s absence of updates for the Moto X 2014. The hilariously bad hands-on demonstration by the BlackBerry CEO also obtained a bunch of votes.

The Largest Fail classification received a great deal of great write-ins. Some individuals simply created ‘Apple.’ The ‘standard tire’ on the Moto 360 Second Gen obtained a number of ballots. Absence of cordless demanding in the brand-new Nexus tools was mentioned. In the span of a year, a bunch of blunders are made.

Thanks to everyone who took part in this year’s ballot! It interested see how the voting changed from in 2014’s results. Do you agree with the voting of your other viewers? What results would you change?
