Hello, please give me instructions with testing the hypotheses:

H1: No relationship between predicted and collected data for model 1.
H2: No relationship between predicted and collected data for model 2.

H1 is tested using predicted model 1 data (pm1) and collected data (cd).
H2 is tested using predicted model 2 data (pm2) and collected data (cd).

Pearson and Spearman correlation is used for testing.

H1 is accepted and H2 is rejected.
Conclusion from this observation is that model 2 is better than model 1.

My question is: can the conclusion can be made on accepted/rejected hypothesis or I need to make new hypothesis that model 2 is better than model 1 and to test pm1 and pm2 depending on cd. If I have to make new hypothesis, which statistic test is preferable to be used when 3 variable have to be compared?

H1 is accepted and H2 is rejected.
Within the frequentist framework, you cannot accept a "no relationship" hypothesis.
"H1 is not rejected" would usually be the appropriate statement.
The non-rejection could be due to H1 (usually a statistical Null hypothesis)
being correct, but more probably, it was not rejected just because the sample
size was too small.

Conclusion from this observation is that model 2 is better than model 1.
No. The differece between significant and non-ignificant is not in itself significant.

If you want to compare models, then you have to compare them directely, and test
their difference directely, not indirectely by comparing two separate analyses.
My question is: can the conclusion can be made on accepted/rejected hypothesis or I need to make new hypothesis that model 2 is better than model 1 and to test pm1 and pm2 depending on cd. If I have to make new hypothesis, which statistic test is preferable to be used when 3 variable have to be compared?
This is very abstract and hard to follow. What is the topic of your study
what are the precise reserach questions, how was the study/data collection
designed, which variables were measured and how exactely were they
measured, and how large is your sample size?

Topic of study: QoE prediction in telecommunication
Precise research questions: Optimal model for QoE prediction
Data collection: Polynomial regression, Neural network and simulation study: output three vectors pm1, pm2, and cd (all are vectors 140x1 with real numbers between 1 and 5)
Variable measured: pm1 (predicted QoE value as output of model 1), pm2 (predicted QoE value as output of model 2), cd (real measured QoE value - referent)
Exactely measured: pm1 - polynomial regression, pm2 - neural network, cd - output of simulation
Sample size: 140 QoE values

Can I make new vectors: first (cd-pm1) and second (cd-pm2) and test which one is closer to zero? Which test to use in this case?

All the best,
Ida

Matched Pairs T-Test is using for testing datasets that have same input points.
ANOVA cant be used because this condition is not satisfied?

Yes, and dependent sample t-test is what I would choose either.
