Android Central

The Mobile Choice Awards 2012 ceremony has been held tonight in Central London and looking at the results it would seem that Android is certainly coming out on top in the UK smartphone wars.

Clearly the nominations didn't include the just-launchd iPhone 5 but even so, the results represent and impressive showing for Android. The iPhone 4S gets pipped at the post and the UK's best-loved smartphone of 2012 is the Samsung Galaxy S3.

Naturally, Apple did win the tablet battle, and the iPad wins the consumers choice award. The Nexus 7 is a close second-however, proving the importance of good, budget-level tablets.

Other notable android entrants include the Sony Xperia U (runner-up, best design) and HTC One X (winner, best handset for social media). Check past the break for the full list.
