Note 8 vs pixel 2XL battery= note 8 win
S9+ vs pixel 2xl battery= 2xl win in your video.... conclusion note 8 3300mah is better than s9+ 3500mah
I think you confused me......... please answer if possible....???????
I want a smartphone that is made in a country where they DO NOT eat dogs or cats !!! Is there a country like that ?? Can Apple bring all their product back to be made in America so we can own a real American smartphone please . Apple was started in America . It is a great phone . I really want to buy an American smartphone .
Agree. As a Note 5 owner I'm now considering buying a Note 8. No other phone comes anywhere near my preferred choice, no matter how many nano seconds slower it is to open apps/camera or if the battery life is 30 mins worse off, whether the finger print sensor is in the wrong position. IMO every other premium phone is exactly the same as the next. I am King Arthur and the sword in the stone is the mighty S Pen every time! Would seriously consider the Pixel if it had a stylus. My mind is made up now, it always was TBH..
Pixel 2XL has stock Android, faster updates and a marginally better camera but other than that Samsung beats it hands down. 2 XL's screen is junk, has connectivity issues, no expandable storage and no headphone jack.
I really think you should have a more accurate scoring system than "this one wins this entire category". You clearly state that many of the categories only had a slight edge to one side, yet they get the whole category with no credit to the other phone? Your conclusion doesn't accurately represent your analysis. Maybe you could give points out of five for each phone in each category, and then just add up the points. That way a "slight edge" wouldn't ultimately translate to a substantial one like it does with your current system.
Also, while a battery test is certainly appreciated, I don't think it should be the sole factor in your analysis. If you can't perform multiple tests, then please at least include your day-to-day experience. I see many other comments refuting your conclusion that the Note 8 could ever realistically win in this category, leading me to believe (and as I have heard elsewhere) that the Pixel 2 XL outperforms the Note 8 in everyday battery usage.
Battery category was fucking retarded. This is exactly why I don't watch techno Buffalo videos. Aside from the fact that it's stupid to test the battery that way since no one uses their phone like that you yourself said the pixel 2 lasted longer. What the fuck idiot?
John, I just wanted to say that I love your videos. I have been going to your videos for what seems like a decade for all my tech info. Its amazing how far you guys have come since you sitting in your apartment in front of one stationary camera. Keep up the great work!
I learned yesterday that the the note 8 can connect 2 Bluetooth devices at once. Even Apple can’t do that. I traded my iPhone 7Plus for a Samsung Note 8. I also love the new Google lens feature. Android has come a long way. Google just keeps getting better and better. Just like you I really enjoy the S pen. Samsung now has a tablet that come with an S pen. Samsung Tab S 3 9.7 you can even buy a keyboard case for it.
I see a lot of people have the note 8 including myself. It seems the note 8 is selling very well. Im glad people are wise enought to know the extra money is definately worth the overall experience you get from the note 8. Imo this is the most beautiful and capable phone ever made. I am beyond impressed with this phone. I recommend the note 8 to ayone who has a taste for flagship smartphones.
I agree with the gentleman who plays ball. I like the pixel 2 XL better because I was leaning towards iOS I also had the 8 plus and the iPhone x. I almost left Android for good until I got a hold of the pixel 2 XL this phone combines a lot of features only found on the iPhone and the stock Android experience has been wonderful I think that the Note 8 is a great phone however after owning the note for about 6 months and owning the pixel 2 XL for a few days yeah I got the panda bro!
Opinions here don't matter much unless you have used them both. My opinion of the Note 8 is that it's been completely trouble free for me for 4.5 months. The pen is completely essential to me being a contractor and that I'm paper free out on a job. I have map templates that I make a lot notes on and I never want to go back to using paper.
I would've wanted a pixel but my network doesn't offer it.. heck, my friend who works for my service provider don't even know about the pixel.. it's always the big two.. so i chose one.. don't get me wrong, i am happy with my choice..
I have this iPhone X and I’m planning on going back to android I’m waiting to see what the next pixel will be giving us cause to be honest im scared of going back to Samsung because oh how bad my last Samsung was it was (galaxy s6) it was slow, updates took forever, battery life was sub par. I’m leaning more towards the pixel because of what I like about iPhone. I hear the pixel is similar to iPhone when it comes to a base software that just works, that’s what I really want a phone that works that brings a few different things to the table away from iPhone.
Going from a xl2 to a note 8, the pixel is a fantastic smooth phone but the touch registration is abysmal at best. Want to play a game that requires both thumbs being on the screen? Lol good luck want to click on a link? Better hit it 5 times before it registers. Great phone horrible screen issues
It's really close between the two devices. Both are pretty great at a lot of things. But which one has the most flaws? The Note gets slow OS updates. But the Pixel 2 XL has a lower quality screen, is prone to burn in, and has just 4 GB of RAM. Also, it has no headphone jack.
I enjoy a lot of things about my 2 XL, but I'd say the Note is a better phone. I miss 6 GB of ram from my OnePlus 3T, and will probably be buying a OnePlus 6 when it comes out. Good thing is T-Mobile got me a discount, making my 2 XL just $524. So it is well worth that price.
My first stock Android since the Droid 1 and I love it. Wanted to install Nova but l really don't need it. The camera is the best I've had and can finally compete with my daughters iPhone 8 lol. The battery is awsome, lasts all day for me.
Only downside is the lack of the headphone jack. I hate the dongle..hate it. Still searching for a decent wireless earbuds that won't cost me a ton.
Coming from the Note 5 , don't going back to Samsung.
As an owner of both. Pixel personal phone and Note 8 work phone. The Note sits in my pocket about 85% of the time. Amazing phone but I simply prefer the Pixel. Can't go wrong with either one, and idk I must've missed that blue tint, grainy display that these people have been getting because viewing these next to each other the looks damn similar.
Why would you want the search bar at the top? Pragamtically it makes sense on the bottom.
And Google definitely let's you change where your search bar is. It's called replacing the launcher.
The ui elements that shine in Google's vision of Android over Samsung's is the subtle differences in things like font, ui transitions, more useful spacing of elements. They just pay more attention to detail in that regard than Samsung.
