It might already be November 10, but it doesn’t feel that way after the #phonepocalypse that we just had last month. While we knew to expect big announcements from Google, OnePlus, Huawei, and LG, unveilings from Razer, Samsung, and Nokia kept us on our toes.
While there were still some phones announced in October that we didn’t include in this poll, these seven flagships were some of the heavy hitters unveiled in that 31-day period. So we asked, which handset was your favorite phone from #phonepocalypse?
What was your favorite phone from #phonepocalypse?
This was a tight race, but the results aren’t all that surprising. Coming in first, we have the OnePlus 6T with 31 percent of the vote. The Huawei Mate 20 / Mate 20 Pro and Google Pixel 3 / 3XL come in second and third place with 28 percent and 19 percent of the readers voting for it.
While we thought that the OnePlus 6T would be in the top three phones from #phonepocalypse, we didn’t expect it to come in first due to the amount of dislike for the removal of the headphone jack. Seemingly, the smaller teardrop notch and in-display fingerprint sensor were enough to bring it into the lead.
But let’s not forget the other players in this week’s poll: the LG V40 ThinQ, Nokia 7.1, Razer Phone 2, and Samsung Galaxy A9. The V40 didn’t do that well this week with only 10% of the votes despite it retaining a headphone jack and a large battery. At the end of the day, it shows that customers do want a good software experience, and that’s something a lot of people don’t find on LG’s phones.
No one anticipated the Nokia 7.1 and Samsung Galaxy A9 to get many votes, but it is shocking that the Razer Phone only received four percent of the vote. This might show that most buyers want their phones to do more than just focus on gaming.
Here are some of the comments from this week’s poll. As you might imagine, it was hard for everyone to come to a consensus on which phone was the best:
- OnePlus 6T > Huawei Mate 20 / 20 Pro > LG V40 > Galaxy A9 > Pixel 3 / 3 XL > Nokia 7.1 > Razer 2
- The Mate 20 Pro might be a little beastlier than the 6T, but dang it all if I can’t have TWO 6Ts and a couple of sets of headphones for the price of the Mate 20 Pro. There isn’t THAT much of a difference to warrant the price. There just … isn’t.
- The slider phones are my favorites. The best phone is the Mate 20 Pro but money for value wise is the 6T
- Nokia 7.1 : The notch finally made it to Nokia ??Pixel 3/XL : 4GB Ram in 2018 ? On a 800 bucks flagship ? ? Plus the notch on the XL is purely ? but nice stereo speakers. ?What happened to Panda ? “Not pink” is the same color as Apple’s “Just gold”? buy yeah the best camera in the businessLG V4O : Amazing phone, killed by the Notch ?Razer phone 2 : Great phone, RGB light, Tough build quality, and finally decent photography ?Samsung A9 : the camera layout is the only attraction here, and Pixel Proved than anything more of an optical zoom nearly useless ?
Huawei Mate 20/P : The K980 was, at least to me, the main attraction of the phone, as the first 7NM cpu on an Android, and among the fastests of 2019. But it can barely keep up with the S845. So it’s a big NO. Plus there’s a NOTCH here too ,?
6T : a great phone, Nice Waterdrop Notch, maybe the best UD fingerprint in the business. Probably still the best bangs for the bucks. ??
That’s it for this week, everyone. As always, thanks for voting, thanks for the comments, and don’t forget to let us know what you thought of the results below.
