Comment Authority: The best comments for Week 15, 2018

By | 14th April 2018

Welcome to a brand new feature here at Android Authority! Each week, Comment Authority will compile the best comments written on the site by you, the readers. Sometimes commenters make terrific observations that aren’t mentioned by our hard-working editorial staff, or simply make a great joke that keeps the conversation lively. We want to highlight the awesome readers who contribute to the community of Android enthusiasts that keep Android Authority vibrant and alive.

Without further ado, here are the best comments from this past week!

Here, like a concerned parent giving us all some sage advice, user sdelfin lets us know their opinion on this joke-gone-wrong:

Negative Nancy of the week

Not every commenter contributes positively to the conversation (this is the internet, after all). With that in mind, we’d like to close out this inaugural edition of Comment Authority with the Negative Nancy of the week, Goran, who is either Donald Trump in disguise or doing a pretty good impression of him in our Huawei P20 Pro review:
