Pixel XL is one of my favorites..:) S8+ i have not use for long time and iPhone X after a month is sweet but have some things I don't like. Did get the Pixel 2 XL but the display was so bad on my unit so couldn't accept it, but gave me pure android feeling so did go back to my "old" pixel XL and use it again now. Something about Pure android that just feels sweet.. Most should call me stupid tho, have ip8+,X,note8,s8+,mate10 pro and more but still going back to a year old phone...:)

i had a s7 for 4 months and after that it was painfully slow, sttutery almost unusable. Been rocking a pixel xl for a year and its still butter smooth, though the battery last a bit less than when i first bought it

About to upgrade to a new phone and I'm deciding between a Pixel 2 XL and a S8. I've always been with the iPhone, so it's a big change for me and I'm not sure which Phone to get. I do need a headphone jack, but the Google assistant on the Pixel seems super handy. There is also a deal going on for both phones, in which you get a Google Home Mini with the purchase of a Pixel 2 and a Fitbit with the purchase of the S8. I would honestly use the Mini over the Fitbit as well. Please help!

Had the pixel, went to an S8+ now going back to the pixel boy it was a bloody mistake going to the S8+ I am sorry pixel, forgive me.
Samantha Williams (2 months ago)
Is the XL still good in 2017? How long will it likely get updates for? I love the stock experience so am not interested in Samsung, even though the s8 has such an amazing display.

From the first clip, where did you get that background from on the s8 and could you please provide a link? Thanks

Watching Google Pixel 2 made me fall in love with my S8+ .. All it takes to choose between the two is one glance.

S8 plus is best
TheOPman (3 months ago)
I bought an S8, installed a Pixel Launcher on it, and used BK Disabler to get rid of everything other than Google stuff. Problem solved.

I've had my S7 for a couple of years now and I really do love it but am so sick and tired of the ridiculous amount of Samsung apps that randomly appear with new updates. As I've had the phone for a while now, despite clearing it of unnecessary data it's lagging pretty bad and I'm pretty sure I'm going to buy a Pixel XL in the next couple of weeks, instead of the S8/S8+
MattOminigo3 (4 months ago)
TheNimmish I gotta upgrade in the near future so I'd suggest waiting for pixel 2. It's gonna be future proof.
Daniel Missirlian (4 months ago)
what was that transition at 2:40? super sweet.
jasonloden (4 months ago)
Why do so many reviewers fail to mention that Google gives Pixel users unlimited full quality backup whereas other phones have to pay to get full quality.
Justin Lee (4 months ago)
Samsung would have hands down the best phones in the world if they would JUST give us stock Android. That being said my S8 plus hasnt bogged down too much yet but I imagine it'll get slower over time.
rakan Issa (4 months ago)

Noel Ventura. (5 months ago)
I got a s8+ and a pixel XL. And. I use the pixel XL it's a better phone it's easy to use it's faster The camera is better. And I get fast updates. ... I don't care about water resistant. I got always on display. With the pixel with Android O. I think they should of modified the pixel more but they also should of increased the ram On the s8+ And fix the a fingerprint scanner Placement . I'm just going to sell the s8+

Mega Andy (6 months ago)
I got the google pixel XL for $20 a month on a 2-year contract. I prefer saving money as to spending the extra on a "newest and greatest."
MattOminigo3 (4 months ago)
Mega Andy good choice. Even with the new pixel coming. You'll be set for the future. That's why i will either buy a pixel xl or pixel 2 soon when it's released. Future proof ftw.

Got rid of my s8 plus, just got tired of the lagging

Covering two very atractive phones with skins when you are making a video reviewing those two phones defeats the purpose of that video. I know that most tech reviewers are dbrand bitches now days but many of the people watching videos like this one, want to see what the phones look like on the outside as intended by the manufacturer. If you think dbrand skins are so unbelievably amazing, just make a separate video dedicated specifically to dbrand skins and tell us all about it.
Noemis Smith (5 months ago)
SJ SJ Yes I get that but for the purpose of this video it should have been made without the skins on and then have a segment talking about dbrand and showing how the phones look with the skins installed.
SJ SJ (5 months ago)
Noemis Smith If you read the description, you'll note dbrand is their sponsor. They pay AP to put their skins on & talk about them.

Debra Dukes (6 months ago)
Thanks so much for sharing as much as I tried just not feeling the Pixel but who knows their is new coming and definitely due for a change especially with the Eyes I have not really noticed until their were updates how much I need the larger phone. I tried going back to a smaller one for few days and that's when I realized can't do it. I definitely need the screen to be bigger I could barely see.Thanks for the Review Deb.

The curved edge on the s7 edge and s8 samsung models seem like a design flaw from a protection standpoint. It is tough to find a case that will adequately protect the phone from drops unless you go with the otterbox style cases. I personally don't care for the bulk of those cases. I have yet to see any reviews that address this design element. I had an s7 edge and also had a crack run in the middle of the screen all the way across. Flex of the device will put more stress on the curved parts of the screen and could contribute to an increase in the likelihood of a horizontal crack. I was a huge fan of the Samsung Note series phones, but unfortunately will be going with non-edge display phones going forward. Currently using a Pixel XL.

When I stare down the long dark road tempted to step back out into the world of Samsung, the Pixel quietly says to me "You've​ been down that software road before and you know exactly where it ends."
Elvis Pereira (6 months ago)
Hey Zach, how did you get the new Google now feed layout on the pixel?
Brysen G (6 months ago)
Samsung is better than Pixel XL, Pixel XL has a horrible design, it's not water resistant and dust resistant either. the only two good features of Goggle pixel is the camera and smooth software, free of lags. the rest of the phone is trash
Ayush Banka (6 months ago)
Accidentally hitting the bixby button seems like a problem only with the s8+ because I have never hit the bixby button even once accidentally.
Aleksander Xhuvani (6 months ago)
The Google Pixel actually doesn't run stock Android, it runs stock with the Pixel Launcher in top

Aleksander Xhuvani it runs stock Android. As stock as it gets, straight from Google.

Lol Pixel fans too scared and simple minded to handle a multi fonctional device like the galaxy S series.
Jordan Crockett (6 months ago)
I feel like I see the same video over and over and over again on this channel. Intro to a problem or conundrum I've probably never thought about, some exposition and nice words about two (or more devices). A dbrand joke or reference, some specs listed on the screen, comparison of doing the same thing on both devices, benchmarks scores, then kicking it back to the audience for what they think.

David Ash (7 months ago)
I've gone back and forth between Samsung and iPhone plenty of times and the Pixel is without a doubt my favorite phone I've ever used, 8 months later.
Ryan (7 months ago)
Your stupid dead comparisons have been driving me mad and are not unique or creative whatsoever. Along with your obvious "top 10 features of ... insert phone" and your promoting of products and ads on your site. Unsubscribed and deleted bookmark. Au Revoir!

I like how people don't like iPhone because of its bezels, but the pixel has bezels, and not only that, the same resolution and the bottom bezel has nothing on it.

what is the weather widget at 00:50 on the S8+?
eazibaby eaZI (7 months ago)
the advantage of stock Android is it's consistency and being able to add what features you want while not bogging the system down with things you don't use our want. the reason we buy signature editon computers as well!! most features are in the playstore and have been available before they were introduced widely to the public on other devices!

Funny how both are suppose to be premium, however they both have dollar shop speakers.

S.R Maniac Samsung is the anti android android device
Mark Robby (7 months ago)
S.R Maniac ..you can't get it? not the same functions.ok. Samsung S8 and the Note series are unique smartphones. they does more things from heart sensor to facial recognition and from iris scanning to air view and so on. just check out a full review if Note 5 on YouTube fir example to see what I'm talking about.
SR maniac (7 months ago)
But honestly having 2 apps for same purpose just sucks! There should be only Google's app in Android.
Mark Robby (7 months ago)
S.R Maniac ...but samsung uses Google android but personalised accord to the multifunctional tasks they have in samsung phones that's not available in any other phones
