Editor’s note: skip down the page if you’re looking for the next matchup, and to enter the giveaway! Hello Android Authority readers! It’s my pleasure to announce that while we’re finishing up testing for our annual Best of Android series, we’re going to be launching a Reader’s Choice award. 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. While we can’t guarantee that this is going to be the best smartphone of all time, the bracket competition is a fun way to blow off some steam and do what we came to Android Authority to do in the first place: argue about phones. Vote on our social channels, too! Instagram Twitter Facebook Matchup #13 results: The HTC U12+ didn’t even stand a chance against the Huawei Mate 20 Pro We’re used to seeing fan-favorite smartphones dominate in the polls, but the Huawei Mate 20 Pro steamrolled the HTC U12+. As HTC has been on the decline over the last several years and Huawei has continued to grow its market share, these results shouldn’t be all that surprising. 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! But I’ve been seeing some nastiness in some social channels. Chill out man, quit gettin’ mad at user polls. Matchup #14: Huawei P20 Pro vs. Asus ROG Phone Today’s matchup puts the Huawei P20 Pro, featuring one of the best smartphone cameras on the market, against the Asus ROG Phone, arguably the best gaming smartphone currently available. Which will you choose? Why you should vote for the Huawei P20 Pro: The Huawei P20 Pro is the company’s most ambitious smartphone to date, combining flagship features with an incredible camera. A number like 40MP is bound to get people interested, and the phone lives up to its billing as a photographic masterpiece, though it takes some getting used to, like any good DSLR. — Nirave Gondhia Why you should vote for the Asus ROG Phone: Asus ROG Phone in hand Asus saw the smartphone market’s current “gaming phone” trend and took it up a notch with the ROG Phone. In addition to having all of the high-end specs that you would expect in a 2018 flagship, Asus also built an ecosystem of gaming peripherals to make gaming on the handset as enjoyable as possible. — Justin Duino Which phone wins?
