In place of our normal roundup of what's been most popular with V3 readers in the previous week, we've taken a look over the whole of 2013 to count down your favourite articles.
In at the number one slot was our handy guide to why you shouldn't rush to get rid of that dull but trusty feature phone just yet to upgrade to a smartphone. Pearls of wisdom included battery life extensions, the greater security protection on offer and the fact you can use them with gloves. Although this has become a moot point now with the influx of touchscreen gloves on sale this Christmas.
V3 readers were also very excited about the arrival of Google's latest phone and operating system, with our articles about the Nexus 5 release schedule and news that the Galaxy S4 was next in line to get the Android 4.4 KitKat update coming in at the number two and three slots.
Readers were also keen to find out about the enterprise technology plans of their peers. News that employees at publisher Pearson were choosing Google Apps over Microsoft Office, and Shell's plans to roll out bring your own device across a whopping 135,000 staff were both popular with our audience of IT professionals no doubt facing similar challenges at their own organisations.
And it wouldn't be a top 10 most popular articles list without Apple making an appearance. The firm garnered most attention this year from V3 readers for all the wrong reasons, with readers rushing to share their gripes about iOS 7, leading Apple to quickly roll out a few updates.
Thanks for all your support during 2013. Have a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
