2023 saw the introduction of an almost infinite number of smartphones. Even though launch events are still far from over, especially in China at the beginning of December, the first yearly reviews (and their winners and losers) are emerging.

For 2023, yearly reviews a month before the year’s end are already popping up. Award ceremonies on YouTube, as popularized in particular by Marques Brownlee with his MKBHD channel, are now an integral part of many tech channels. The first yearly verdict on smartphones in 2023 comes from Arun Maini, who is more likely known to his audience as Mrwhosetheboss. In his video (embedded below), he hands out trophies to winners in a number of categories.

The two losers, on the other hand, have to make do with a wooden spoon in the hope of perhaps cooking up something better in 2024. We don’t want to give away any spoilers: we reveal under the video which smartphones in 2023 won awards for categories ranging from “best foldable smartphone”, “best compact smartphone” to “best smartphone of the year”.

The winners and losers of 2023 (for Mrwhosetheboss)

Of course, such a list is always subjective, and the availability of exciting candidates has shrunk further this year. In the US, Chinese smartphone manufacturers are traditionally hardly available (with the possible exception of OnePlus). The European market is more diverse, but also experienced significant setbacks in 2023. The fact that Oppo did not launch its Find X6 Pro outside China and smartphones from Vivo, Oppo, OnePlus and Realme were partly taken off the market due to patent disputes is not exactly pushing Samsung and Apple to make more of an effort. The Huawei camera flagships that are currently making headlines are also likely to remain largely limited to China.

In this respect, many of the additional options mentioned in the Youtuber’s video are only theoretical, making the winners quite predictable. Without further ado, the list of winners and losers from Mrwhostheboss are:
