They should not name this the best smartphone because the best smartphone should include every smartphone sizes.. If they want to do this poll they should have specified like best medium sized smartphone or best 4.5" to 5.4" smartphone
The best smartphone of the year is none. No smartphone is perfect including the s7 edge.
Sh4d0wf0x, 18 Oct 2016where is ONEPLUS 3 here?.... imcomplete poll !!!!!This is for phones under 5.5". They would probably have a second poll next week for phablets.

So you are saying just because someone crash a car then it cannot become the best anymore? Say I have the porsche 918 which is the best supercar in the world and crashed it, would all the people say that the 918 is not the best anymore? It is still the best car it is just that one unit has crashed.. So indeed your rally driver lost the race but it does not make the car's quality/performance obsolete.. The same goes to the Note 7.. So the Note 7 lost a race with iPhone 7 but does speed only counts? Still the Note 7 offers the best feature and performance packed phone despite not being the fastest.. Only 0.001% exploded and the rest are working fine even if samsung insist that they'd be returned.. The fact that the explosion rate is 0.001% and is not reproducible(read the news) points to a defect rather than a design flaw.. The iPhone 4 antennagate is a design flaw because it affects all units and reproducible

Until there is no proof that there is something wrong with Note7 , the only possible explanation is sabotage and planted scammers.
Most of the reports were proven scams, already. And no one of the 'replaced' Note7 cases was proven yet.
So, Note 7 is still the best, most functional, and most beautiful phone in the Planet , that no OEM can make something like that.(which was the reason of the attacks)
tinco, 18 Oct 2016LG V20?This is a poll for smartphones only, which is the reason why the lg v20, iphone 7 plus, pixel xl, one plus 3 or even the notorious note 7 aren't here. Those bigger phones are known as phablets.
If the Note 7 was included in the poll, I would have clicked on it. It is a curious mix of the bestest and worstest phone....in one package :)
Voted for the S7. Waiting for the S8.
iPhone does not stand a chance, because despite being a great device, it runs iOS, while the S7 runs Android

With a glass back+water resistence, the battery is probably heating enormously. And even if it is a deffect, a deffective phone can't be good, because it's just useless. So yes, saying it's the best phone is ridiculous. If you crash at a rally, then you're out. It does not matter what was your driving performance before the crash, you're still not among the best.
Shaun Moroz, 18 Oct 2016Best phone, not phablet.There is not such thing as ''phablet'' ignorant.
This that the media invented this BS name for the large phones doesn't excuse you.
First time they used ''phablet'' word, was for 5'' Dell Streak, then for Note1(5.3'') , but when their lovely iPhone Plus(5.5'') came, they said over 5.5'' is ''phablet'' -under is not! Leaving Note1 behind ther bar. LOL
Different size TV, monitors, cars, fridges ....doesn't mean different devices. Right. Size is just a preference.
Shouldn't we wait till the end of year to choose? Some more phones may be introduced by the end of year.
Ali Bashir, 18 Oct 20161)Sony xz 2)htc 10 3)iPhone 7 Others either not worth or craps ehhhms7mm ehhmLGmmm, :DSadly for you over 40% of the votes so far go to the S7 so you have permission to go wallow in shame somewhere.
Can't believe people are saying it's the LG V20!! It's nowhere close to the best smartphone of the year s7 the edge
marlo, 18 Oct 2016People who voted the Note 7 must be very dump. Title says "Best phone" now to define the word ... moreCredit is where credit is due.. Note 7 was in the market even for just a short while.. And it was the best in reviews by all tech reviewers.. Note 7 was unfortunately recalled due to some manufacturing defects.. Which is a shame but it does not affect the review verdict.. Please be intelligent and recognize the difference between defect and inherent design flaw.. The iPhone 7 missing 3.5mm is a design flaw.. Note 7 explosion issue is a defect.. Which affected less than 150 out of what 15 million which if you know math is 0.001%.. Samsung did the honor and killed the Note 7 to protect the customers.. But for me and I believe millions of other intelligent smartphone users are willing to wait for Samsung to sort out the issue even if it will take months and it is something that Samsung should have done instead of killing the best phone of 2016 which is the Note 7.. I vote for Note 7(a safe non exploding one)
