Weekly poll: What were the best phones to come out at IFA 2019
IFA 2019 saw several major reveals - you can read our recap of the new phones that were announced if you were too busy to follow along with each event. What do you think - was it more exciting than last year? Here's the 2018 recap if you need a reminder.
And more importantly - which is your favorite phone? That's the theme of this week's poll. To keep things fair, we've split things into flagships and mid-rangers. Let's start with the flagships. We'll link to our hands-on reviews and videos if you need more info on each phone.
