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!

    Well gnex has major issues….

  • this site is the anti droid pumping unreleased Win phones for verizon all were doing is hooking them up with ad revenue going there this means nothing and is obviously staged just like the smoked by windows phone challenge. 

  • Nice job guys! we are now 2,000+ up! 

  • Travisgary

    we are ahead by 1600 votes

  • fillyo

    Don’t worry, we are well in the lead now.

  • Jeff J

    Just voted as of 3:51pm and the Nexus is ahead by 1550.

  • Sorry, can’t take this challenge seriously if the HTC One X lost to the BB Bold 9900.

    • When I saw this I knew I couldnt take it Seriously. ISN’T A SMART PHONE yet it won to a FAR Superior next Generation Device. What a JOKEEEEE!

  • PC_Tool

    3700 vs 2240 right now in favor of the G’Nex….

    No worries.

  • Fat_boy

    vote early and often!

  • Destroythanet

    Thanks for posting this Kellen. GNex all day, son!!

  • Earleepa

    Thats understandable. The only thing the nexus has going for it is the fact that it has the latest OS. As far as phones go its a huge piece of crap.

  • ajm531

    The tides have turned in a few hours. Galaxy nexus is now spanking the stupid htc titan 2

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

    And now we’re 1300 votes up. WP7 stomped again by the GNex.

  • Nexus up by 1300 votes. There aren’t even that many Windows phone in existence, so it should be a lock now.

  • ApplesNAndroids

    Maybe because the Galaxy Nexus is a poor as excuse for not only a nexus device, but as a phone?

  • Eazy E Dlf

    and were winning again

  • Gnex taking a nice lead

  • trevorsalienarms

    4S out in the first round? I’m no Apple fan, but crikey, that’s seems unpossible.

    Also, the One X hasn’t even been released yet, has it? Why not put the GSIII in there if that’s how it’s gonna be played.

    (Titan is now getting a serious pipe-hitting beat down…)

    • GawkerRedesignSucks

      The Huawei Ascend D Quad hasn’t been released yet either.  What a janky bracket! HAHA

  • GawkerRedesignSucks

    ROFL The G-Nex is SMASHING the Titan now!  Love it!

  • Desamation

    I think it’s pretty rad that in the original vote there were only 538 votes.  😛

  • darkseider

    That poll is really silly.  Not to mention that there seems to be an incredible bias to WP7 phones especially ones that haven’t even been released yet.  Hell by the time they do come out Krait and Tegra 3 based handsets will be out and about.  

  • Evil-D

    Someone is being stomped, but it is not the GNex.

  • SD_Scott

    And now we’re dominating lol

  • summit1986

    GNex up by 1000 votes XD

  • Just looked, and now we are 900 ahead….  SH*T JUST GOT REAL.

    Nice job guys

  • Booyabobby

    Way to go guys.  Keep it up!

  • I’m incredulous about the results on that bracket, so far.

    A Blackberry Bold 9900 bests the HTC One X, but the Galaxy SII beats that same Blackberry Bold?

    The iPhone 4s loses to the Huawei? (I’m ok with the Lumia 900 wining that region.)

    A Galaxy Note loses to an entry level Lumia 710? Ugh!

    I think the only region that makes sense is the one with the Galaxy Nexus and Titan II.

  • Desamation

    Now a full 1k votes ahead!

    What a difference 30 minutes makes.  ^_-

  • Dliuzzo110

    How the hell does blackberry beat the one x? This whole thing is bunk. This is as dirty as that Saigon hook….nevermind

  • How did a blackberry beat the One X

  • Kaliboyred1

  • Ishbudigital

    if you click return to poll after voting you can revote i did 22x for nexus. 

    • duke69111

      No being rude, but I’ll bet it did not count it and you wasted your time.  If you look in the box above the vote it says 
      Thank you, we have already counted your vote.  

  • Jim Dandy

    Dirt nap!! Lol

  • Azn_Android

    Does anyone know of any windows phone 7 blogs? Or news websites? I really want to see what type of news they have there and the community! Please let me know!

  • Galaxy Nexus is winning now.  All is right with the world.

    I have a feeling it’s going to come down to the Galaxy Nexus vs the SGSII.  The Galaxy Nexus should win, but it may not considering there are many more SGSII users who don’t realize how awful Touchwiz is and how amazing ICS is.

    • PC_Tool

      “there are many more SGSII users who don’t realize how awful Touchwiz is and how amazing ICS is.”

       Ah, but when you put the two together….sweet romance.  😉

  • Up 700 votes now.. WTG DL Community!!!

  • Austinrgoebel

    Lets go DL

  • duke69111

    Nexus is up by 421 after my vote.  

  • Holy crap, I came by and the GNex only had 200 or so votes. I left and see you post this article; over 2k votes. Droidlife. Doing it right.

  • Desamation

    Just said I was Vote Number 4k.  /flex

    54.1% to 45.9% Now!

  • Imns

    Since the Titan II isn’t even out yet and no one knows what the hell a Huawei Ascend D Quad is – I’m guessing this “contest” doesn’t necessarily have to include current or main stream phones.  I say we throw in an OG Droid into the mix.  I know I’d vote for it.

    • Droidzilla

      OG, Sean Connery Droid > All

      • EC8CH

        Yesh… Yesh it Doesh
