After all, it’s not like we didn’t lay out other options! We gave you the choice between the Galaxy Note 7 and the new iPhone, and this is what we came out with. In fact, the iPhone 7 isn’t perfect either! It has no headphone jack and doesn’t handle email accounts the exact way some of you wanted it to. For some, that was just as — if not more — important than the Galaxy Note 7 exploding with enough frequency that scientists, officials, and even the people at the store, implored us not to buy it. So, when the time came to vote, it’s understandable that we’d be almost evenly split on which to choose.

Yes, this is a politics post.
