                    then there are those refuting validity of this list when this was voted by the public. this is not like politics wherein the contenders can campaign, or in case of my country can buy votes or rig the voting process, to make it to the list. let's just trust the public here, right?

                                    If you're going to pay $350 (including the budget, mid-range and affordable flagships), then don't think about any other brand than Redmi and Realme.
                                    Paying those $350 for every other brand will be totally a waste of money. Really!

                                    But when it comes to High-End Flagships, it gets a little bit complicated. Every brand offers something unique and they are all good and nice.
                                    It just depends on WHAT matters to you.

                                      Of course Galaxy M20 will win - it costs ~50% more than the other entry level competitors, of course it is going to be much better.
                                      Phones in the midrange costed just a little bit more.
                                      What it was doing in that category is beyond me.

                                        And the battery? judge by yourself:

                                        Mi A3: https://fdn.gsmarena.com/imgroot/reviews/19/xiaomi-mi-a3/battery/-727/gsmarena_280.jpg

                                        RN8: https://fdn.gsmarena.com/imgroot/reviews/19/redmi-note-8/battery/-727/gsmarena_400.jpg

                                        M20: https://fdn.gsmarena.com/imgroot/reviews/19/samsung-galaxy-m20/battery/gsmarena_436.jpg

                                        And aside from that, the cameras and the processors are no-brainer wins for the Mi A3 and RN8.
                                        Also the ads can be easily and completely disabled if you change the region in settings.

                                        But all of this aside, I think that M20 won because of the availablity, not the specs.
