    My concern, as you might imagine, is that the Xiaomi and Realme phones won't be all that appealing outside of a handful of places in the world.

    Also, you know it's gotta sting a little for Google and Huawei when their phones didn't make the list. But let's be honest: Google shot itself in the foot to a degree, and US politics have made Huawei's phones a tough sell.

    My concern is that her physical attributes could somehow be relevant with her opinions on any subject...

    At this point I'm looking at Nokia and Motorola if Google doesn't put out a decent Pixel 4a. Hell, I might even go back to Apple.
    As much as I like their hardware, I still hate Samsung's clumsy software. I really wish more manufacturers would release flagship-level phones with stock'ish Android.

    She's been reviewing phones for years and is well respected for her work. I see no problem with a physically appealing phone reviewer. Maybe you and I are just different in that respect.

    These phones are all great, but I wish all of them came with US band support. I've had my eyes on several mid rangers from the Redmi Note 8 pro, to the Pocophone F1 and they all have the same problem.. they wont work on most carriers here in the US.

    As it stands, there are also issues like aftermarket support and whether or not you'll like the particular OS (yes, I know you can install a third-party launcher). Some Chinese vendors' UI strategy boils down to "copy Apple."
