Poll results: Galaxy S9 wins popularity contest vs Xperia XZ2... by a hair

At this year's MWC, we only saw two of the major players introduce their flagships. First, we got Samsung's Galaxy S9, then Sony showed us the brand-new Xperia XZ2. They are both cool phones in their own right, with their strengths, weaknesses, and unique features.

Considering that the sales will be 95:5 in favour of Samsung, these results are look like home run for Sony.

Its a hair and even less, Samsung sells around 15 time more than Sony annually you can consider it as a popularity ratio too, while the poll shows 15% deference, have you ever asked yourself why Samsung is committing to buy all first bunch of snapdragon chipsets since 2017? Knowing that their snapdragon variant doesn't cell 1% compared to Sony /LG/HTC/ONEPLUS /GOOGLE PIXEL...... All together.

The sales figures will speak otherwise. I’m thinking a lot of haters in this poll. Like the Apple ones.

Yeah, because a slight change to the old Sony design will suddenly make Sony a household mobile brand... The only ones "buying" Sony phones these days are Sony employees, the rest are used for movie brand marketing in Hollywood. Been like that for a decade. Even Microsoft is rolling their eyes, telling Sony enough is enough. :)

Sony fans are like ghosts.. They make a lot of noise and show lots of love to their beloved gadgets but.. They don't buy!

what happens is that the 90% who buy xamxung are grandmothers, grandmothers and casuals, those who buy xperias we are more harduser and we want the best, we usually visit more technology sites.

Compare to S9 it's a brick. The real thing will be left alone at the stores for sure. It's a brick compare to almost any phone I can think of right now. That's not about Samsung S9 being better. You can look at how super budget friendly Redmi 5 kept the dimensions and weight in check. https://www.phonearena.com/phones/size/Samsung-Galaxy-S9,Sony-Xperia-XZ2,Xiaomi-Redmi-5/phones/10716,10790,10753
