In a landslide victory during week 106 of PhoneDog’s Official Smartphone Rankings (OSR), the HTC One became the People’s Choice top device for an astonishing 52nd straight week.  After a full year on top, we congratulate HTC, the fans of the One and the voters of the OSR.  Will next week’s announcement of the all new HTC One (M8) bring the end of the original model’s reign?

Collecting 32 votes and taking back third place after two weeks away is the LG G2. Following close behind is the Google Nexus 5 with 30 votes and the Apple iPhone 5s with 25 votes.  

The back and forth race for the top spot on the Experts’ Choice chart continued this week, with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 edging out the Apple iPhone 5s by one point.
