This poll is rigged. Where is the Apex?.
I know it was presented as a concept phone but that should be even more reason why it should be on this poll to see how it was received by GSMARENA readers.
Cirov12, 04 Mar 2018Xz2 win easy, The s9 was a rehash without innovations, does less things than my 2017 mobileSure, s9+ lacks the best Sony innovative feature "headphone jack removal".
Cirov12, 04 Mar 2018Xz2 win easy, The s9 was a rehash without innovations, does less things than my 2017 mobileIf I if ainÂ’t broke donÂ’t fix it. S9 was an iterative upgrade. The XZ2 is a clusterfuq.
Considering all facts, I vote for Asus. Specifications are similar at all these phones. Asus is different, although the notch is not the top design feature (and by the way, Apple was NOT the first one, so not copying Apple). But the price and design of Zenfone 5z is the best of these five.
Asus : Apple copycat.
Sony : too many curves, I appreciate the design change , but this is overkill.
LG V30s : is good , but so is Last Year V30.
This leaves only two real contenders
Samsung Galaxy S9 : similar outside, completely different inside.
Nokia 8 Sirocco : Beautiful and compact (bit larger than iPhone 6, yet packs 5.5 inch display).
I voted for Nokia 8 Sirocco.
I know samsung has been announced their two Flaghship S9 and S9+ , these Flaghship is still nice Design, has f/a 1.5 aperture camera, dual lens. Overall is perfect smartphone in many area's. But for now i think i have to choose Asus Zenfone 5z with the Big Ram, Great hardware with new Sd 845, and good quality design hands on, and also "bezell less" display.
Sony design ought to just die.If asus can cut their bezel to that slim, why can't they do it to their sony? If they deem that thick bezel is thin, they ought to compare it side by side. Its so ugly.it just look like the phone of 2016 with that bezel.
No fps under screen, no new technology or innovation in batteries and nonsense trend for example notchism or two to oneism (18:9) outcome: can't see a phone deserved to best flagship, it's nowadays situation to flagships not just flagships also other phone makers: repeaters as mockingbirds or mockingjay..

Has to be the Vivo Apex. I understand that it is a concept, though.
As a Sony fan and owner of XZ premium, I would have voted for them but that design (especially the lack of headphone jack) really makes it hard to side with Sony. Asus is great but that notch makes it look like a cheap iPhone clone. So this time it's Samsung S9.
Nokia 8 sirrocco best flagship for sure.
Premium materials and just for 750 eur.
Rest of the companies either offer very high price for nothing special like S9 samsung.
Or stupid notch and the phone wich looks like apple X case of Asus.
Or nothing from its precedessor apart from a slightly different name. Case of LG.
And to Sony as usualy same design no jack which i dont care but you guys of course will and nothing extra just bit better camera and price beyond believe.
So the winner is Nokia. Anyway Snap835 is good enough and compared to newest 845 there isnt big difference to worry about. Phone is lightning fast enough to run anything. And looks genuinely beautifull with its premium materials.
Personally, I'd go with the Nokia 7 Plus. It's a mid ranger for sure, but offers what looks to be great value at the price. It's certainly a better value option at £399 than the 8 Sirocco is at £700 or more.
Overall though, not a great showing from MWC this year, we got a Galaxy S8 'S' duo, new Sony Xperia's that changed everything except the one thing that needed changing (the camera's), and the LG V30....again.
Not great at all.
Imperator Neubaticus, 04 Mar 2018The s9/s9+ duo easily. Although overall, last year's mwc was more exciting. Clearly last year's MWC was more exciting, this year's MWC is more of a refinement for smartphones
All the same boring slate type mobiles. Miniscule differences in design or speed, but nothing in the least distinctive.
The most "unusual" would be the XZ2 compact because of its size (small phone have become rar).
The s9/s9+ duo easily. Although overall, last year's mwc was more exciting.
