Time may choose its person of the year, but here at CNET we take our time compiling lists that really matter. So recently I joined with my fellow cell phone reviewers to pick the best and worst handsets of 2007. Out of the 123 cell phones we reviewed this year (that number doesn't include all the smart phones we examined), we had some definite winners, and some definite losers.

I'm not going to reveal them all here; instead you'll have to click through to see my picks for the best cell phones of 2007, Bonnie Cha's choices for the best smartphones of 2007, and Nicole Lee's selections for the best Bluetooth headsets of 2007. And just to show you that we don't love everything, we also chose our worst cell phone of the year.

To give you a little hint, I can tell you that the LG Voyager VX10000 was our only handset to receive an Editors' Choice award, and the Samsung SGH-A127 didn't fare quite as well. Happy holidays, and we'll see you in 2008 for more cell phone fun.
