iPhones are going to win all the time especially when the Android vote is split between multiple options.

 

If you are an iOS user then there is only one option to choose from.

Android more than one option, it is like our political system it splits the vote and the best option isn't always the one that wins lol

Ah....yes this survey was flawed from the very beginning!

The iPhone XS is a good pick although I picked the Samsung S10 because of the lower price than the iPhone XS.

There is also the iPhone XR which is almost similar to the iPhone XS.

I didn't pick Apple.. Let's hope there is a Samsung next...

I suspect that all three models are coming to the Public Mobile pre-owned phone lineup.  While the voting was likely to a provide a little bit of fun, these devices would have already been available and I can't see any reason for Public mobile not to put the rest up for sale.  

 

I will add that the initial impression that I got from the original announcement thread and of this announcement about a winner was of a contest, but that isn't the case.

Agreed - they would have had to source all models in the vote in case any particular one won. So the others will likely be available soon at the price they had always intended.

So true!!

 

but honest, from the Community replies, we see so many posts about their vote to Samsung but not too many Apple's.   I guess Apple users are not as outspoken here and they just quietly cast their vote?

Cosmetics are easy to gauge but how can we be sure of the battery health?

And is it 64 GB (pointless) or 128?

you can use apps to test it.   As long as it is reasonable , it should be ok.

 

the one thing it's good to get from PM is that it is covered by 1 year warranty

I'm not an apple guy myself and find that a little pricey for a used phone. But @softech makes a good point you usually only get a one year warranty with a new phone so at least they are willing to back up a used product. That gives me more faith in the quality of the phones for sale.
