It’s hard to believe it, but 2019 is finally coming to a close. Earlier this year, you voted on the best smartphone of early 2019, but now it’s time to crown the final champion of the year!
There are many factors that go into deciding what’s worthy of being called “the best.” On Friday, we announced our picks for the Best of Android, based solely on objective testing across several categories including display, battery, camera, performance, and audio. There’s more to a good phone than just the hardware, however. Objective testing only tells one side of the story and doesn’t account for intangibles like software update frequency, user interface, or even value for money. To address this, we also brought you our Editors’ Choice pick for the Best of Android. But what about our readers? Now it’s your turn to have a say.
The Best of Android Readers’ Choice Award gives our readers the opportunity to crown the phone you collectively feel stood out as the best of 2019.
