Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus crowned the TechRadar smartphone of the year

TechRadar has announced the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus as its "Smartphone of the Year" at the 2019 Consumer Choice Mobile Choice ceremony in London.

Samsung's flagship phone has brought home the biggest award of the night against fierce competition from Google, Huawei, Apple and OnePlus.

TechRadar's Consumer Consumer Awards are a celebration of the UK mobile industry as a whole, looking at the best hardware and networks of the last 12 months.

The awards were judged by the public with over 34,000 entries this year combined with the opinions of our panel of expert judges to create a list of the best in the mobile space.

Who wins big?

Samsung not only went with the best smartphone as it won "Smartphone Manufacturer of the Year" and "Best Nose" for the Samsung Galaxy Watch.

When it comes to networks, Tri was the most prolific winner to take away "Best Data Network", "Best Roaming Network" and "Best Value Network". It also received TechRadar's "Deal of the Year" for its bargain of just £ 20, which offered unlimited internet for a phenomenal price.

The Best Network acumen went to EE, which also won the "Best Customer Care" award.

"The best mid-range smartphone" – it's priced from £ 200 to £ 500 – went to Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL.

Huawei has gone with the "Best Value Phone" (that's under £ 200 for devices) for the Huawei P Smart 2019 as well as the "Best Camera Phone" for the Huawei P30 Pro.

Apple has won two awards, including "Best Gaming Phone" for the iPhone XS Max, as well as "Best Repair Service" for Apple Care.

Amazon also won a trophy for Best Online Retailer, as well as Best Smart Home Appliance for Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Generation).

"Best Street Dealer" and "Best Customer Experience in the Store" both went to Carphone Magazine, while Music Maggie got "Best Recycling Service".

Our inaugural "Best Quad-Play Provider" award – for a company that offers broadband, TV, home phone and mobile phone deals in one package – went to Heaven.

And finally, our "One to See" award highlighting the companies we look forward to in the next 12 months went to TCL for its exciting innovations in the smartphone space.

The awards were held at the Cafe De Paris in London with representatives from the largest manufacturers and networks that came out to celebrate the last 12 months.

Gareth Bevis, TechRadar editor-in-chief and host of the awards, said: "This year's move to Cafe de Paris feels like a brilliant move for TechRadar MCCAs, with a closer place that provides more atmosphere in the room.

"Samsung was pleased to return its crown as one of the most decorated manufacturers and it looks like 2020 will be an even bigger year for the brand – bring on the 20th anniversary of the awards!"
