We asked, you told us: This was the worst year in telephone history

2014 being cited as arguably the most effective year. It's easy to see why, with the Samsung Galaxy S5, LG G3, and HTC One M8 all being published in the same year.

What in regards to the worst years for the industry though?We could definitely ponder a few disappointing or even bad years for smartphones. Was there any certain year that stood out above (or below) anything else?

Well, we lately turned to you folks to discover which year was the absolute worst, and there was totally one winner.Huawei was put on the US govt's Entity List, resulting in the loss of Google aid.This meant that most next phones and tablets did not have Google Mobile Services. This was also the year of the first foldables (at the least from major brands Samsung and Huawei), but the Galaxy Fold‘s common launch was delayed due to last-minute defects, while the shortage of foldable glass made durability an issue. It didn't hurt that foldables around the board were costly.Read: These 6 budget phones are the best OnePlus Nord options

2019 also saw Google and Samsung faltering in many ways with the Pixel 4 series and vanilla Galaxy Note 10 respectively. The Pixel 4 series offered smaller batteries (at least in the regular model), no fingerprint scanners, and gimmicky Motion Sense tech. It also missed out on the more and more usual ultra-wide camera.Meanwhile, Samsung's vanilla Galaxy Note 10 lacked a big battery, a headphone port, and microSD enlargement, but had a crazy $950 price tag.2016 was in second place, due to the Galaxy Note 7 catastrophe, brands beginning to ditch the 3. 5mm port, and the dud that was the LG G5. It was a tie for third place among 2010 and 2015. The latter was my pick, and for plenty reasons.Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 processor dissatisfied, LG phones started boot-looping, the Galaxy S6 traded a variety of capability for a new design, and HTC started its downward spiral.Finally, the "other" pick accounted for just over 6% of the votes. Readers left comments pointing to years equivalent to 2020 and 2017. For what it's worth, we idea about including 2020 as a pick by itself but decided towards it as the year isn't over yet.

  • Miku Ivalice: As a "savvy" client searching to upgrade, 2015 was pretty rough. I was already ready months for the 810, after which the reviews came in about 810 phones experiencing overheating, throttling, and poor battery lives. Not content material to go together with Apple that left my only real choice to go Samsung with Exynos which was not the perfect upgrade I hoped for. 2020 has been a very good year for me. I got the LG V60 and I love it to death its so outstanding.

  • Gianluca Di Maggio: 2018 cause that was when those stupid Notches started to get used further and further. Or was that 2017?

  • Djanta: 2020 is shaping up to be the worst year in cellphone historical past!

  • Ng Wai Leong: 2019 is not a failure year. There were many techniques happened.

  • Rob Geeson: For me, 2016 was the best year when the Xiaomi Mi Max was introduced. . and 2019 was the worst year, when the series got cancelled.

  • C. J. Brown: 2016 = the top of NEXUS smartphones (but almost annually has a ‘this sucked' moment).

  • That about wraps up this article. Thank you once again for the votes and feedback.
