Xz1 compact for compact king, a lot of battery for a small factor, ip68, one of the first android Oreo built in phones ever released. Same specs as we premium but gentle price and all the good internal specs. I came from the Nokia pureview 808 I kept more than 5 years and 3 batteries e To jump in in Android. As I love my Nokia 808. What a huge step !

It's unfair to have included the pixel 2 instead of the 2xl even worse down at the bottom. I get it the 2xl has its screen issues but it's still a bigger phone by the way.

Marian Chicu (23 days ago)
Couldn’t help it, watching from what I believe is the sexiest beast this year, the iphone X! Love you, guys! Happy new year!
Joshua Daniel (24 days ago)
Pocket now’ s the only channel who uses the pixel 2 more than the XL.(I’m not complaining)
Isaiah Quantz (24 days ago)
Essential Phone
Bleachanna (24 days ago)
I'm sorry but the x is a complete design failure from every standpoint.
Ningthou Ali (24 days ago)
HTC U11+ and HTC U11 is better than all of phones everytime
Altema22 (25 days ago)
Epic timing: Saying "Some of those design elements we enjoy, like the taller aspect ratio display", while showing the 5T with HUGE pillar boxes! 5T definitely belongs on the list though. Good list though, and I'm glad you put the V30 in as the MM beast that it is. Not sure the iPhone 10 deserves a spot for being less stale than their previous models, especially in light of their non-intuitive gestures. The Note 8 is good, but it's for a specific group of users. And, if you are not in that group, it's cumbersome size and poor fingerprint sensor location (queue the apologists!) make it a less desirable choice.

Giveaway of one plus 5t or pixel 2 xl
Patrick King (25 days ago)
Sorry but Apple gets removed from any and all top lists until they are going to stop with their artificial throttling.
Davisson Queiroz (26 days ago)
NOTE 8!!!!!!!! yea baby!!!
Jorge Ulises Guerrero (26 days ago)
The Galaxy S8 was the one innovating with the displays and is not here!
Panda Dab (26 days ago)
Galaxy s8 has to be there
Modib23 (26 days ago)
Htc u11 has changed the way we interact with our phone with squeeze technology. Although it needs some refinement it still deserves to be in the top 5 for that innovation alone. It's amazing how HTC can create a new platform but until Samsung or Apple does it , it's not considered revolutionary. Shame,shame....

Razer, no honorable mention?

At 3:34 he was about to write "Send Nudes"
Melo (27 days ago)
Everybody laughed so hard last year about the Note 7 having serious battery issues. This year every reviewer says that the Note 8 is the best phone of the year. I hope the Engineers at Samsung will be rewarded this year.
Vedant Shimpi (27 days ago)
Razer Phone should've been an honorable mention

NOTE 8 ♥♥♥♥♥

Rip what happened to Nokia 8 and Huawei mate 10 pro?
Troy8769 (28 days ago)
The I phone X should not be on the list... Sorry but that was a Beta product!
Creative Me (29 days ago)
S8 and iphone 8 should be on the list
Marcus Xe (29 days ago)
A true great smartphone brings new and meaningful innovation to the table (Note 8, IpX, Bbery Key1 , Pixel2) , not by undercutting prices (Xiaomi , Huawei , motorola , HTC , Oppo, Oneplus). Pretty much sums up 2017
Jhun Laroa (29 days ago)
Note 8= beast
Anand Singh (29 days ago)
S8 deserved to be in that list!!
Prashanth Murali (23 days ago)
Anand Singh yeah its cause these assholes are always biased towards Apple, LG and Google... they already have the Note 8 on the list... they didnt wanna lose all those Apple Fanboy subs...
Alexis Mol-Hdz (29 days ago)
Jaime is an apple fanboy that's why the X Is higher than LG and OnePlus..I think Huawei deserved a spot
S J (29 days ago)
For me LG G6 its perfekt phone
Unianu Andrei (29 days ago)
I'm happy to see my Note 8 in 1st place :D
Ismael Bonal (29 days ago)
No.3 is ridiculous! You're better off to categorize winners than making such a list.
HENTAI/GOD (29 days ago)
iphone X is the BEST
Aek_f.c manos (29 days ago)
Juat got the lg g6 love this phone
abdul-wahab hawsawi (29 days ago)
The lg g6 is one of the best bang for buck phones this year.
abdul-wahab hawsawi (22 days ago)
Prashanth Murali personally, I prefer the lg g6 over the onplus 5. Ans while the galaxy is s8 is a great phone, it is fragile because of the curved screen, which is a big concern for me. But yeah, these phones have a great value.
Prashanth Murali (23 days ago)
abdul-wahab hawsawi not really... one plus is about the same price... even the Galaxy S8... and theyre miles better
sk najesh (29 days ago)

sony xperia xz is still the best
Bernard Poindexter (30 days ago)
I have LaG V30 but think the Huawei Mate 10 Pro is the best phone of the year, that note size is unusable for me, don't want to look like i have a 12 inch boner in my pants all day.
Dj Bill James (30 days ago)
No Xperia XZ Premium??
Rajath Pawaskar (1 month ago)
Pocketnow please compare LG V30 against OnePlus 5 T with separate camera comparison.

Nikolai Harhai (1 month ago)
I'll take my Moto Z2 with mods. Fast and fluid nearly stock android with no freeze ups and no lag unlike Samsung. No screen turning black for no reason also unlike Samsung. I don't use a pen on a phone, and I like the mods. That's what you call innovation, boys!

For the one month I had it (mine was defective), I loved the LG G6. I have a Samsung S8 now but I miss a lot about the LG. That knock on display and finger print sensor placement was everything.

iPhone X gets second place this site fake asf
Golden Boy (1 month ago)
You can tell they wanted to give the iPhone X the number one slot, but were scared insecure Android fanboys would vote it down and unsubscribe.
Justin_ (1 month ago)
You guys faithfully & probably intentionally forget the Moto Z/Z2 line every single time. MOTO MODS are all the more reason the phones should be on the list every single time for innovation. Nobody does it like Motorola does.

I'd vote Galaxy S8 but it's too damn fragile. I haven't even made it to the end of the year and my front glass is already shattered. DIACLAIMER: This is the first phone screen I have shattered. :(
