Weekly Poll Results: All Eyes Are On Sony At IFA

By 05:37 Thu, 05 Aug 2021 Comments

IFA is quick approaching (starts next week!) and we asked you which devices are you most excited about. The vote is pretty split, but then there are a lot of options.

The clear winner is the Sony Xperia XR - a proper 2016 flagship from Sony to replace the Z5. It got double the votes of the next closest competitor - so the demand is there, Sony better be on the ball (recently we found out there's an Xperia X Compact and an Xperia XZ in the works too).

Next, we have a tie - the Motorola matched with the LG G Flex 3. We've seen very few rumors about the G Flex 3 and LG is prepping to unveil the LG V20 outside of IFA - the first phone to launch with Android 7.0 Nougat. So, there's a fine chance the G Flex 3 will stay a rumor.

There are more Moto leaks - some about a small Moto X (2016) and some about a cheaper Moto Z Play. Previous polls showed fans loved the Moto Z series, but with a lower price tag and same modular design, we can see why people are interested in the Z Play. Meanwhile, fans of small phones swear the original Moto X was the best phone ever.

There's a fine chance Huawei will unveil either the Mate S2 or Mate 9, the latter being more likely. The rumors paint the Mate 9 as a large phone (5.9") that boosts P9's dual-camera setup to 20MP resolution.

We also had a couple of smartwatches, the Samsung Gear S3 dominating 4 to 1. The recent Tizen-powered watch is a follow-up to last year's S2, which brought the clever rotating bezel design. The Asus Zenwatch 3, meanwhile, feels a small underappreciated - the Zenwatch 2 lacked a round option, but it was a fine quality Android Wear watch on a budget.

Of course, there were dissidents in the comments, clamoring for an Android-powered Nokia to show up or for the mythical Microsoft Surface phone.
