Users' favorite phone brand in 2020? Poll results are in!

Users' favorite phone brand in 2020? Poll results are in!
Just last week, we asked you an interesting question: which is your favorite phone brand right now?

We gave you the 10 most popular phone brands worldwide, including not only the big names like Samsung and Apple, but also many companies out of Asia like Huawei and Xiaomi.

Now, after nearly 4,000 of you have voted, the results are in and we can safely say that we have a surprise. Take a look at the final chart:

Which is your favorite phone brand?

Apple
16.64%
Google
4.21%
Huawei / Honor
4.29%
LG
2.42%
Motorola
1.61%
Nokia
1.45%
OnePlus
27.74%
Samsung
31.82%
Sony
4.11%
Xiaomi / Redmi
4.29%
Other
1.43%

The big winner is Samsung. The brand got nearly 32% of your votes and that is a strong showing, but not at all unexpected considering the strong Galaxy S10 and Note 10 series, as well as the downpour of exciting rumors and leaks about the new Galaxy S20.

The big surprise comes at the second place where we have OnePlus. The "Never Settle" movement grabbed the hearts of nearly 28% of our readers and it shows that people appreciated the combination between super fast performance and more affordable prices that OnePlus offers.

At number three we have Apple. The Cupertino company amassed 16.6% of the votes and all of that stands on the shoulders of the iPhone 11 series that bring big improvements to battery life and camera.

Huawei, Google, Xiaomi and Sony each got around 4.2% of the votes and were far behind the market leaders in this poll. LG, Motorola and Nokia had the least brand love finishing with less than 2% of the votes.

I like Samsung's hardware, but their software experience still leaves a lot to be desired. It's way more polished than their older "bleep bleep bloop" touchwiz phones, but I get a lot of false touches from the sides of the "infinity screen", and Samsung pay comes up a lot when I'm just trying to use the home button. I'm pretty sure my S9 is the last Samsung phone I'll own for quite some time. Gonna stick with the Pixel or OnePlus.

As usual, I am in the vast, vast minority. My brands of late have been LG (currently, 3 out of 4 of my immediate family have LG products) and Motorola. I think I have a built in resistance to go with the popular brands.

Apple would still be behind Samsung, just like their sales are and always have been and always will be.

Where was poll taken? South Korea and/or backwoods of Kentucky? In the real world, in the city, maybe two out of ten are Samsung devices.

2 out of 10?? Seriously?? That is your experience? I find every other person I meet has a Sammy device. Where I work, the offices around ours has 7 people close by, and 4 of them have Galaxy products. Back among my fellow engineering division workers, it is way more varied, but close to half have Samsung. Strange you come into contact with so few.

I haven't purchased an iPhone since the 7, and the X I bought for my mom who recently passed away, I was so excited to start using. Then after just a week of using it, I realized the more things changed the more they stayed the same and I was literally bored after just 2 days. It felt fresh for a but and then the severe limitations of how easy it is to perform simple tasks on my Note 9, just main iOS look like the handicapped platform it has always been. Since I use social media alot, Samsung has worked hard to make posting and uploading pics so much easier and in most cases in just 2 or 3 steps. Several videos have shown that the 3-5 steps it takes to so similar tasks on an iPhone, makes the app speed advantage totally pointless. Until Apple wakes up, Android at least on Samsung devices is simply the better buy whatever the price range.

Same, I love it. It's probably the best phone of 2019 with the oneplus 7t pro close behind it

Everyone knew that Samsung is going to win this , they make tons of cheap phones, everyone can own a Samsung phone, that's why they have so many fans.

Having a cheap phone doesn't mean that it's someone's favorite. Especially on a site like this where most readers are probably more invested in their phones than someone just looking for a cheap phone. Different cultures prefer different companies. Samsung does a good job at appealing to populated countries/cultures.

No man, everyone from any country can afford a Samsung galaxy phone. They made phones for any man or budget. For sure you will vote for what kind of make of phone you are using

That just dumb. How about this. The reason Samsung won is because they have more phone available on more continents vs any other brand and that includes Apple. Apple and Samsung are the almost the only 2 brands where they sell phones in nearly all livable countries. Samsung devices are available in 300 countries and iPhones are available in over 250 countries. Samsung is not the only oem who makes lower prices phones. Not everyone in the world is rich. That is why HP and Dell still sell over 10M computers per quarter and Apple sells barely 2M per quarter. Better products are not better because they cost more. In fact, the majority of the best products cost less and they is fact.

While Android is all nice and dandy but once you get the taste of Apple's ecosystem, you'll never want to go back to anything else! I've an old iPhone 7 and an even older Mac Mini and the way they communicate with eachother is just... Bananas! Take a photo on your phone and presto, it'll be on your Mac! Same goes to notes, music, iMessage conversations, contacts, calendar, cellular text messages, phone seetings backup, you name it. Android and Windows 10 can only dream of such seamlessness. I'm not saying you can't do this stuff on a Win10 + Android combo, of course you can, it just won't be as seamless. You'll have to install this app on your phone, that program on your PC for every single thing, seperately. Whereas in case of Apple, the operating systems themselves are 'doing the talking'! Hope I didn't offend anyone! G'Day!

That a personal opinion. I use both ecosystems daily, and both have pros and cons. Ios plays better with corp. networks, least where I work. Android allows better overall customization. Just use what suits you best. But, personally my android is more useful to me.

It all sounds good and dandy but I'm a rebel. So I like to hangout in sites like bilasports watching my fav teams live so when iPhone can do that then I'll be more than happy in trying out their products and ecosystems.

Yes you can load the page but can you watch the live feed?

I was able to watch some ice hockey match from today yes, It was Buffalo Sabres vs Ottawa Senators. Was that live or not? i don't know how that site works, the match isn't available to view anymore. But i saw the embedded video link and it started playing like any video. It doesn't need flash if that's what you are thinking. And even if it would need flash, there's flash browser called puffin available for iOS. google "bilasports iPhone" and you find a thread from 11 months ago talking about the subject and based on those comments and like i expected, it works just fine, you can even airplay the live to your TV. Hope this helps you, now you can join the Apple ecosystem.
