The Samsung Galaxy S3, which has sold more than 40 million units across the world, was crowned Best Smartphone at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2013 Global Mobile Awards in Barcelona.
Alongside unique innovations, the attractive 'designed by nature' Android handset boasts a range of impressive specifications, such as a 4.8-inch HD touchscreen.
The South Korean firm also took home the title of Best Manufacturer, as it is not just the S3 that receives rave reviews from technology experts and consumers.
Its Galaxy Note 2 device is dominant in the phablet market, while handsets like the Galaxy Ace and Galaxy S2 continue to attract gadget lovers with a smaller budget.
However, the Nokia Asha 305 reigned supreme in the feature phone/entry-level handset category, as it offers a good user experience for a small price tag.
Features include a three-inch touch screen, dual-SIM capabilities, Bluetooth, a 1600 x 1200 pixel camera, as well as music and video playback functions.
