For the second consecutive week, the Samsung Galaxy Note II takes the #1 spot as the overall top smartphone selection in both the People's Choice Chart and Mobile Tech Expert's Chart in PhoneDog Media's Official Smartphone Rankings™. The Nokia Lumia 920 is still making waves, however, and moving up in the charts. Does the Lumia 920 have what it takes to be the #1 smartphone this holiday season?

MT PLEASANT, SC – PhoneDog Media's Official Smartphone Rankings™ (OSR) continues to set the standard for ranking the hottest smartphones on the market by taking votes from both readers and experts to weigh the best smartphones against one another. For week 37, the Samsung Galaxy Note II took the #1 position in both charts, making it the overall top pick for the second consecutive week. It narrowly edged out the Nokia Lumia 920 in the People's Choice Chart by 37 reader votes. And its lead over the Apple iPhone 5 in the Mobile Tech Expert's Chart was slightly smaller, only leading by six expert points.

In the People's Choice Chart, the Nokia Lumia 920 jumped from fifth to second for week 37, besting the Samsung Galaxy S III in third by 91 reader votes.
