Oh wow, finally.... wait! I forgot this website user base is 100% Samsung attracted, so its only natural that it would have an excess of 30% in its "fan-base". HTC and Huawei did so well this year, LG made the V20 an epic phone nowadays (to compensate for the G5 "hate", whereas the Note 7 did the opposite for the "loved" S7/S7 Edge), people complain and complain yet the Google Pixel is the absolute android experience monster, period and the Iphone 7 is actually a really good phone (Talking of the headphone jack lack, is like talking about still using micro-usb usage, why is removable battery gone, why does the phone receive no updates, etc). Heck, the camera shootout even benefited the LG G5 above all else, but lets be real, everyone head is out for Samsung, which is mind bogglingly sad. Fanboys will obviously point that im a Samsung hater... But the internet is controlled by dimwits in the end, so yeah. Moving on, just wanting to share some fresh breath into a dark folded community...

LG G5 and V20 are much better than Galaxy S7 and Note 7.
In fact, LG V20 is the best phone of 2016.
samoa, 18 Oct 2016In my opinion non of them worth actually all the above are crap
-No removable battery
-No ... moreGalaxy S7
SD support- yes
Glass back - replaceable, so no big deal. (Whole aluminum body- dents and scratches forever)
Head phone jack - yes
Non replaceable battery- only point agree with you. But having everything better than the others, make it the best phone of the year(except Note7 of course)
Be Cool, 18 Oct 2016What about GalaxyS7 Edge? (and even Note7)?Sorry friend I was trying to say above the 5.5inch and It doesn't apply for the note 7 because as you know problems doesn't bring you in the first place!!!
While S7edge is best allround, V20 is best for photography fans, not forget to mention oneplus3 which 4K video capture more detail than any other phone, be it x force/xz/v20/?. If it wasnt for poor audio it would be best 4K-camera-phone. See for yourselves.
In my opinion non of them worth actually all the above are crap
-No removable battery
- Glass Back= the Worst Idea it brakes for joke
- No headphone jack = Big problem
Anonymous, 18 Oct 2016OMG Samsung hasn't something special to provide in 5.5inch & above! What an epic fail What about GalaxyS7 Edge?
(and even Note7)?

Sushi Majesty, 18 Oct 2016I think Screen size shouldn't decide the poll the hardware and OS should. And Oneplus 3 has th... moreOf course the screen size should not be involved here.
The only thing that maters is, which smartphone ppl like most and think is best.
This ''phablet'' BS invented ''category'', is ridiculous. And is invented and used by the so called tech media only for trickery.
Best is the best. Period.
And that's Note7.
Broilo13, 18 Oct 2016I voted for LG G5 since it's the only phone which displayed a real innovation potential. We'v... moreTrue, LG tried and failed with the add-on design. It is really pain in the ass turning phone off and on just to add something. Motorola on the other hand created a perfect add-on phone. I won't say any of them are modular designs, because you can't change the basics of the phone, like processor, ram, internal memory, etc. After that will be possible, it will be a modular phone (like the scraped Phoneblocks / Project Ara or others, which succeeded or not).
Anonymous, 18 Oct 2016This is a poll for smartphones only, which is the reason why the lg v20, iphone 7 plus, pixel ... moreTrue, I only later realized this is for phones under 5,5". However, question whether to talk about phablets is completely irrelevant. Since the industry is always moving the margin, where a phone is a phablet or not. For me, all of them are phones. Of course I won't buy phones, which won't be comfortable holding in hand. Nevertheless, all of them are still phones. Phablet is an irrelevant word these days.
Undoubtedly,without that disastrous PC,s mistakes in the battery issueof Samsung,s Note7,it would have been my first choice now!!But Galaxy S7 is my first choice and with a little bit of distance(with reference to gsmArena complete review)unbiasedly IPhone 7 is behind Samsung!!There are other options in high,higher,and the highest category and 3 levels in midrange categories!!!Some of the mentioned smartdevices are not in the high ends standard criteria to be mentioned!!Why!!!?The highest knowledge and smarts of knowledgeable consumers nowadays!!!Yes!?Justice Rights.
All are crap, if the issue isn't the price it's the os, the soc, the lack of a microsd slot or something else.
I would say OnePlus 3 is the best for the price to performance/features, but it is not listed here wtf. Number one had to be Pixel but it disapointed a lot of people by its weird design and price. So Samsung galaxy s7 takes the crown this time for bringing back everything s6 lacked, instead removable battery.
