We need YOU to decide which 2018 phones are the best, crowning one handset to reign supreme. An internal poll decided the seeding order, and all matchups were determined using a 24-unit bracket. This means that the most popular phones here got a first-round bye, but any phone has a chance to unseat these mobile devices head-to-head. Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the page to cast your votes, and to enter our giveaway — the more you vote on our matchups, the more chances you get to win one of three winning phones! A bracket showing the competing phones for Best of Android.24 phones enter, one remains after a month of head-to-head competition. Every day, we’re going to be updating our Best of Android scoreboard with the winners from the previous day’s polling. Check back here every day for a new head-to-head matchup, and to see how badly your phone beat the competition! Once a final winner is determined, it’ll earn the coveted Android Authority Reader’s Choice Award.

Vote on our social channels, too! Instagram Twitter Facebook Matchup #20 results: The OnePlus 6T fought hard, but the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 won this round Wow. Just wow. Yesterday’s matchup was a hard-fought battle between two of the most popular smartphones of 2018. With its win, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will go face-to-face with the Google Pixel 3 XL to see who moves on to the championship round. This is a lot of fun, and I’m proud of our readers. I know that it’s very easy to care a whole lot about smartphones — myself included — and the tone in the comments has been encouraging! Keep up the discussion! Matchup #21: Samsung Galaxy S9+ vs. Huawei Mate 20 Pro This will be another very interesting fight. In one corner, we have the Samsung Galaxy S9+, probably one of the most-sold phones around the world due to how well-rounded it is for the price. And in the other, we have the Huawei Mate 20 Pro which many regard as the best phone of 2018, even if its price tag is too high for most. Who will win? You decide! Why you should vote for the Samsung Galaxy S9+: The Galaxy S9 Plus. You get two of the most beautiful, feature-packed smartphones ever made. These phones deliver in all the areas we expected. The displays are top-notch (and notch-less). They sacrifice nothing under the hood. Both boast solid camera performance. These are probably the best Android phones for most users, and I’d have no problem recommending them to almost anyone. — Jimmy Westenberg Why you should vote for the Huawei Mate 20 Pro: Let’s get it out of the way. You’ll probably want to buy the Mate 20 Pro. It’s sexy, it’s powerful, it’s one of the best phones you can get right now. The real question is if you should pay no less than 1,050 euros (~$1,205) for the privilege of owning it. — Bogdan Petrovan Which phone wins?
