Almost every smartphone design poll we put out at Android Authority divvies people up into opposing camps.

Lightning be gone! Why I cannot wait for USB-C music on my iPhone

USB-C ported iPhones are coming; that's all but certain. When, exactly, is still up for debate, but the EU says Apple must add USB-C charging ports to iPhones from 2024, and even though the UK won't actively follow the EU in enforcing this demand, it won't matter. The EU has...
