Earlier this month, Bonnie Cha shared the favorite smartphones as chosen by CNET readers. And now, just to make sure no one is left out, I offer your favorite handsets from the past year that aren't smartphones. These models, which are presented in no particular order, may do a lot more than just make calls, but they don't have third-party operating system. And they all can say that they're loved by you.
