Poll results: Most of you are excited for the Galaxy Note 6, the next Nexus, and the iPhone 7/7 Pro

So far in 2016, we've witnessed the arrival of some quite impressive smartphones. Samsung's Galaxy S7/S7 edge, LG G5, HTC 10, and Huawei P9 immediately pop into mind.With such an explosive start of the year, we can only salivate at the thought what's in the cards for the remainder of 2016. Needless to say, we expect a flurry of intriguing devices to be introduced. 

That made us think, what's the smartphone you're expecting the most to arrive by 2016's end? Is it the iPhone 7 or 7 Pro, the usual suspects? Is it the Galaxy Note 6, the phablet to rule them all? What about this year's Nexus device, we heard HTC might be involved?

So, ever curious about your opinion, we opened up our virtual polls yesterday and asked you to cast a vote for the phone you are anticipating the most. Long story short - it seems that the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 is in the lead, having amassed some 586 votes, or 26.33% of all those who cared to vote. That's unsurprising — Samsung certainly had our curiosity with the Galaxy Note 4, but it was the Galaxy Note 5 that really got our attention. Hopefully, the Note 6 will continue the trend.

Close second the Note 6 comes Google's Nexus phone for this year. We have close to no info about this one at the moment, but regardless, 520 of you (23.26%), are holding your breaths for the phone. On the third spot, we have two phones - Apple's iPhone 7 and 7 Pro. The next chapter in Apple's smartphone book is expected by 411 voters, who represent 18.46% of the whole pool. Check out the poll results below to see how the rest of the phones fared.

Yet they still sell more phones than any SINGLE OEM. So what they have had decline in sales. Every OEM who has ever been on top, has never been able to forever hold a lead forever. The only exceptions is Intel and Microsoft. But presently the only reason Intel is in the lead still is because of PC OEM's. If AMD actually worked harder to beat Intel and made better stuff, they could have gotten enough OEM's to switch, which would have instantly dethrone Intel. Microsoft and Windows is a different story. But in general, no OEM can sustain such massive hardware sales for long. Market saturation eventually does come. Even if Apple has had YOY years falls, that trend is now going to start. Most OEM's have never been able to recover from sliding down. NONE. What makes Samsung stronger is, all their money isn;t tied up into one product. Since for Apple, the iPhone is more than 75% of their income, and they have NO OTHER products to fill the gap, Apple will suffer far more than Samsung EVER will. You fans are so stupid. Sliding Samsung, still sells over 300M phones since the release of the GS3. That have fallen bellow that number since selling 430M phones in a single year Samsung actually has real competition and its hard to just stay on top, but they manage to go it longer than Apple has...lol. Apple really has never been on top. They were for 2 years and HTC came and set them on fire for 3 quarters of a year with just 2 phones. Apple's own business model is self-killing because all their eggs are in one basket. Good luck with Apple cars...lol. Tesla already has a significant lead in this market. Unless Apple can make a Tesla for 50% the price, that idea is going to die a horrible death. Especially when you have so many car manufactures already with gas-alternative cars.

True, the iPhone is everything for Apple's revenue and even net worth. If the iPhone's sales continue to decline, Apple is finnished!

Nothing wrong with the Note 5 or the Note series being a bigger version of the S series. What do you want? Something that's not popular and doesn't get rave reviews? If you were Samsung would you do that? I fully expect the Note 6 to be a bigger version of the S7 and I'm ok with that. It's not that the Note line is lagging, the S line is so good now and has caught up.

I wont get the next Nexus until the following Nexus because I love my Nexus 6... Front facing speakers are a must. I wont downgrade. I dont think Ill get anything other than a Nexus now. Mine works flawlessly.
