Galaxy Nexus is Getting Stomped in Laptop Mag’s Smartphone Madness Challenge, Let’s Change That (Updated)

As of this moment, the Galaxy Nexus is getting crushed in Laptop Mag’s Smartphone Madness bracket by none other than the HTC Titan II. Pretty sure that is a Windows Phone, yeah it is. Probably the same one that got “smoked” over the weekend by a G-Nex at one of Microsoft’s stores. So let’s show Windows Phone again how good this Nexus is and rack up some votes over there. Otherwise, we may be stuck with a bunch of phones with a “gorgeous UI” that no one will ever buy, battling it out with the Galaxy SII for smartphone supremacy.

At the time of this posting (12:19PM Pacific), we are about 900 votes down. Go get ’em DL community.

Update:  In about an hour and a half, we were able to erase that 900 vote lead and jump up by 1,600 votes. Keep crackin’ away at it though, we don’t want a comeback by an unreleased Windows Phone.

Vote at Laptop Mag’s site.

Cheers Timm Eddy and Pinocchio!

  • Sarcen

    What do you wanna bet Microsoft is botting their poll.

  • SH

    Vote placed, and we are winning now.

  • Hell ya. 51% for Nexus and 48.9% for HTC. Nexus is making that push.

  • nwd1911

    Just checked and the Nexus is winning by about 100 votes.

  • ragnarok180

    When I checked the poll the first time the results were Titan II – 70% VS G-Nex – 30%. Now its 51%-49% In favor of the Nexus 😀


    cooling off period…

  • Zeprider25

    Almost caught up.


    we passed 50%

  • Well we made short work of that…

  • Rakoskjc

    Looks like we just crashed their servers

  • ddevito

    HA. GNex is winning. Sweet.

  • Mscaduto

    Forget the Nexus…how did the blackberry bold beat the HTC One X? How is that even possible…

    • Haha, wow! Clearly this site doesn’t get a very diverse (or large) set of readers…

  • Phoenix

    Hell, yeah!

    • ddevito

      GNex has the lead.

      • Gunther

        Can’t count your chickens before they hatch, but, once this poll is over, tomorrow morning, we need a post from Kellex that says Titan II smoked by Galaxy Nexus. 🙂

        • Or he could go all Willy Wonka on us with the headline: 
          Breaking, Galaxy Nexus smoked by Titan II. Strike that, reverse it. Thank you. 
          But, your way sounds more plausible. 


    hahaha, did my part…

  • Guest-ish

    50/50 now keep going


    challenge accepted.

  • ddevito

    The Huawei Ascend D Quad is my new fav gadget.  🙂

  • ddevito

    Only down 186 as of 3:40pm EST. Let’s keep it going

  • Droidzilla

    Kellen, make sure you post again for the SGSII battle and for the finals. We can’t let the WP7 trolls win!

    • Fandroids unite!

      • Droidzilla

        Have I asked you before if your avatar is from Labyrinth?

        • Yep. +1 for twisted 80’s childhood references. I love those little guys. I have to see that part 2+ times whenever I watch the movie. It’s so fun listening to the song combined with their antics. 

  • Brandon Sikes

    I’m sorry, why would the Lumia 710 beat a Galaxy Note? Seems like something is up with this.

  • moelsen8

    wow the gnex is coming up fast…

  • Michael_NM

    I still own two Windows phones, but they haven’t been charged in a while. 🙂 *Damn it. I meant this to be a reply to Dr. Droid…


    Voted gnex. Over and out.

  • I have a GNexus and am pretty pissed off at it actually.  Touchscreen bug remains making games difficult to play.  No 4.0.4 source from google yet.  No Pogo cardock yet as advertised by SamSuck.  I like the phone but will never ever buy another samsuck device.

    • Noahcarson

      Anyone got some apple seeds this guy can suck on?

      • Azndan4


  • moelsen8

    i have a feeling the tide’s about to turn..

  • Drew56

    Nokia Lumia 710 over galaxy note? Lmf

    • New_Guy

      …absolutely asinine. 

  • It’s pretty clear that some Windows Phone sites are sending in voters just like we are. Not only that, but I have a hard time believing there are 1500 Windows Phone owners in this world. 🙂

    • Greg Morgan

      LOL! nice!

    • Paul

      Right? How did the Lumias beat both the RAZR and the Note. The 900 hasn’t even hit yet and it beat the RAZR. Yeah, ok.

      • Phoenix

        Yeah it’s ridiculous.

        • PoohGQ

          Actually not ridiculous! The 900 was at CES in January and Mobile World Congress. If you had a chance to play with it you’d know where it’s getting all those votes and the press coverage as well.

          • feztheforeigner

            I’m not sure you have any idea what you’re talking about…go away…

          • PoohGQ

            LOL! What are you getting mad about?? Just check out this article from the Android loving CNET: http://bit.ly/xWVeTv.
            I was at CES and got to play with this phone so I know what I’m talking about. BTW, watch out for the ad blitz from AT&T starting this Sunday.

      • Well the 900 will be better than the RAZR so….

    • moelsen8

      i wouldn’t be surprised if microsoft was doing all the voting with how hard-up they are to get people to try wp7.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio


    • I’m calling shenanigans on this whole thing as well, those numbers shouldn’t have even been close considering how many more people own a galaxy nexus over the entire population of windows phone owners.

      • Noyfb

        use chrome’s incognito browser and vote, close, reopen incognito browser and vote again, and so on, just voted 5 extra times

        • Loki

          Voted 1 vote in each of my phone’s browsers, stock, chrome, and dolphin, and flash video, plus my pc

    • Stephen D

      GNex is winning now. 

    • New_Guy

      Ha! nice jab, indeed =).

    • Kierra

      And that is also lame…

    • ṁy best friend’s sister-in-law makes $82/hour on the computeŕ. She has been fired for 5 months but last month her payĉheck was $8674 just working on the computėr for a few hours. Ĥere’s the site to read more : LazyCash5.Com

    • 1bad69z28

      No way are we going to let a Number 1 seed Galaxy Nexus fall to a window Cinderella team. Galaxy Nexus Baby!!!!!!!!!!!!

      In my Dick Vitale voice 🙂

  • Michael_NM

    Vote early and vote often! 😉


    • Kierra


  • Edfasdaqrqew

    done and done… go get em DL community

  • Sqube

    Sorry, but that whole thing is ridiculous. The Bold 9900 beat the One X.

  • Phoenix

    This is clearly fake… Windows Phone phones win…fakee…

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    COME ON ANDROID Users!  Let’s go to war! .  . . The Droid-Life is a part of our Anatomy!…The Life of a Droid!

  • Jmikel222

    The Titan II isn’t even out yet. How can anyone say it’s “better”?!

  • WakeUp

    Who cares?
    The winner will be the most popular not the best.

  • ragnarok180

    Not sure if it counted but I voted like 40-50 times XD

  • Done! C’mon GN!

  • FortitudineVincimus

    Let’s not and say we did

  • jmcdoo

    This just in: I disagree with most of the people who read “Laptop Mag”, apparently.

    • Droidzilla

      You disagree with random bots sent by corporations like MS? No!

      • jmcdoo

        Yes! (Sounds strange, I know.)

  • jjrudey

    This challenge is garbage. Half of the phones aren’t even released and a Blackberry beat the One X.

    • No.  the Iphone 4s got beat by Hawaii 5-0 Ascend?  whatever that is.  Seems legit to me.

      • Huawei Ascend is better than most phones out there… Please stop being stupid.

        • Nick S

          Won’t release until Q3 2012, so how do we know that?

          The specs are pretty impressive: http://www.phonearena.com/phones/Huawei-Ascend-D-quad_id6936

  • I’ll be voting around 500 times, see ya in 3 hours

    • Phoenix

      Make sure you change your IP adress after every vote. 🙂

  • RBI411

    Blackberry Bold beats HTC One X? Yeah sure. Don’t even bother.

    • New_Guy

      Yeah, I didn’t understand that one either…And how did the Galaxy Note get snubbed so early???

  • EricRees

    Release the hounds!

  • Done!

  • Kierra

    This is lame
