I hope you were being sarcastic because it everyone knows it is going to be a Samsung phone. Samsung fanboys (largest in PA) would never let any other phone to win even if other phones are objectively better. For Shame.

Note 11 won't win next year ... if rumors are true that is.

Doesn't matter it's just a Popularity contest, go with the phone YOU believe is the best

I don't know how, this phone doesn't have a 3.5mm jack. The note, as far as I'm aware, is supposed to compromise nothing

All day battery + Type C earbuds = compromising nothing due to no need for charging while using the phone.

I love my note 10+. The only thing that would make it better is if it had windows 10 mobile and windows 10 mobile had all of the apps.

True geeks love Linux.. You can always: - root the phone (maybe when it's out of warranty) - get SU - install Linux Deploy app - emulate a true Linux OS like Ubuntu or Mint or Kali - install any program you want after that, including Virtual Box - emulate a Windows 10 OS and run it :) Meanwhile in team apple and windows mobile, people have no clue what I'm talking about.. :)) Android knowledge vs everyone else.. That's what Open-Source really is.

No surprise here. Most smart people use Android. Dumb people don't read tech news

Love my note 10+. Untouchable out there for overall functionality and performance. Holding over until the s11/s20 now.

Part of me is curious how many people actually have or have used the devices they voted for. I bet there is a lot of wish-list stuff up there...
