Dozens of nominees can't hide the one true fact, there is the iPhone, then there are hoards of useless droids.

Like all the OS's before spygle crap were unusable. Or iOS is now. God, HOW did people live before almighty spygle? They didn't i guess.

Lucky patcher will remove Google dependencies of certain apps.

Still huawei, until sony realizes what they're missing

My mind blew up when I saw P30 Lite not in the midrange and compact phones sections. I cannot see anything like this on the market. 159 grams? 6.1" 97% DCI-P3 LCD that is super compact? S10e is identical but priced 3 times higher and has 240 mAh lesser battery with a beefier chipset.

And what is this "uncertain software future" nonsense? Huawei can update Android OS. Google only provides their Play suite of apps.

Discriminating phones on the basis of Google apps? Was GSMArena always like this or has it changed in the recent few years? Also how are all the categories about 5 phones (Realme XT, Mi 9T, OnePlus 7T Pro, iPhone 11 Pro and Galaxy Note 10)?

The best phone is the one that you have. Period.
Thus being said, I had a Samsung S9+, an iphone 8 plus. Now I have a Samsung A20e, because I realized I don't need all that power for whatsapp and youtube.

'We'd be all over this one if onlyÂÂÂ… if only it could work outside of China, which it realistically can't due to lack of Google Play Services support...'

Which is BS. I wonder how recognised phone site can even write such BS. HOW can't it work, explain please? There's Huawey AppGallery, growing in steady pace. All 'mustbe' for everyday users is there. Google protect? Joke. Google store is FULL of malware, etc. So what then? Google Play? Absolutely pointless 'service', just allows Google to harvest more data. Youtube, Gmail? Third party apps or browser. Cloud, Docs? Microsoft has better alternative. Plus. A lot of people DON'T WANT Google 'services' anymore. People are waking up.
