GSMArena.com held its first ever smartphone champions league, pitching 32 smartphones against one another, and eliminating devices in round after round of public voting. The grand final is here, and the last two devices standing are both powered by Windows Phone OS. It is almost shocking to see how the “underdogs” got to this spot. The tournament is strictly a popularity thing, which makes it even more surprising, considering the size of the Android horde. Besides Windows Phone and Android devices, the tournament also featured iOS and Asha OS devices.
Anyway, now squaring off in the grand final are the Lumia 1020 super cameraphone and Lumia 1520 phablet. Here is a big hurray for Nokia’s Windows Phone OS boys!
So that’s that then – the big day has finally come. 32 smartphones, 30 games and just over 1 million votes have lead to this moment – the grand final of the Smartphone Champions League.
