24/02/2012 - The winners of the 2011 Engadget Awards -- Editors' Choice (and enter to win an unlocked Galaxy Nexus!)
Yesterday, we announced your selections for the 2011 Engadget Awards, and now we're back with our picks. Editors' Choice awardees are designated for each of the same 15 categories that you voted in earlier this month, but these results represent our own opinions, and are not influenced by your nominations. Naturally, there's some overlap here and there, but there are plenty of newcomers as well. As you can see in the teaser just below, we've included a brief summary for each product to give you an idea of what motivated our decisions, which you'll find just beside the rest of our favorite products once you click past the break.
Also, be sure to leave a comment for your chance to win an unlocked Galaxy Nexus -- courtesy of the folks at Negri Electronics. All the rules for entering await beyond the list of winners on the other side of the break
Smartphone of the Year
The Galaxy Nexus has a gorgeous 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED display, excellent battery life and it's a top performer through and through. Oh, and it ships with Ice Cream Sandwich. We'll take two.
