Smartphone Madness 2015: Who Will Win?

College basketball fans aren't the only ones who lose their minds in March. We're going ga-ga over smartphones with the annual Smartphone Madness competition, which kicks off tomorrow (March 12). You, dear reader, are the only one who can actually determine which phone will be the champion.

Sure, the NCAA tournament's Selection Sunday is later this week (March 15), but we can't wait that long. Tomorrow's opening match-up sees the Apple iPhone 6 go toe to toe with the OnePlus One. Tip-off happens at 10 a.m. EDT, and the polls will be open until 9 a.m. on Friday (March 13). That gives you 23 hours to cast your votes. Winners move on, and losers go home.
