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.

the pixel isn't metal it's painted with a plastic layer

You guys have no idea how much fun and easy it is to take a note with the S pen on the note

Software note takes as well. The pixel is glitchy and laggy. I have the note currently and really on paper this is an amazing phone. But day to day it's got lots of issues

Can't trust a Samsung wanker. Unsub immediately and find someone unbiased.

You say Note 8 is better, but even though I'm not a tech reviewer on YouTube. I would like to believe that I know somewhat about smartphones and I have to respectfully disagree.

Samsung Touch Wiz is horrible!!! Not better than Stock. It even forces you to use the Samsung modules for maximum personalization. And BIXBY!? So hard to avoid. Samsung is fired in my house for being overly invasive in my Android experience. I dont know what this guy is on, liking Touch Wiz. Before smartphones and Android Samsung had the worse UI on a phone and if they don't check themselves their Android phones will be the same. Samsung, NO!

As a stock Android lover I have to admit the Note is all around better. Samsung really came back and hit a home run with the Note 8 & definitely redeemed themselves after the Note 7 fiasco. My two current phones right now are the Note 8 and OnePlus 5 i have the best of both worlds and couldn't be happier.

I have a note 8 , it is a great phone indeed but when I check youtube I always find my self looking for pixel XL or iphone X. I dont know why...
Kingslayer (7 days ago)
Pixel 2 XL (64 GB) is only $450 at Best Buy (Verizon).
Kingslayer (7 days ago)
Yuck to carrier bloat and possibly being carrier-locked. Pixel 2 XL wins easily just by those two reasons.

Today I just order the pixel XL2

I have always liked the Samsung UI from the S1, Note 2, Note 4 and S7. I agree that it was not always the fastest but it brought some real-life functionality benefits worth having and many of its features from earlier models are now in stock android.

I agree ..note 8 is superb ...Americans would always root for Google n Apple cause these are American brands

How come you missed out a unlimited photos backup for pixel owners , which is a huge deal considering most of our phones are going to fill up with photos over the cause of the time .
Alan LaRage (12 days ago)
This is a close call tbh. Its definitely comes down to personal preference. the specs are so close to being on par its not even noticeable. The note has the s pen and dual camera which i will say wins over the pixel. However such features like the iris scanner and 6gb ram doesnt matter since touchwiz would counter the ram. I've had both phones. IF you utilize the s pen and samsung pay then thats your preference. However i intregrate everything with google. so i chose the pixel for my preference. The note 8 would be perfect if the software was intregrated better.

I give battery to the pixel

Daniel Anderson (13 days ago)
Battery category was bs, if it charges faster and drains same time who gives a fuck how big the battery. It still loses if it didn’t out perform
Neil Sargeant (13 days ago)
This guy really does hate the pixel 2 lol. Every comparison I have watched basically the pixel 2 as lost. seriously the battery shouldn't had gone to the note 8. In my opinion Pixel 2 XL is pretty much the best phone out there. Design: note 8 Camera: pixel 2 Software: pixel 2 (pure android and latest updates and no bloatware) Battery: Pixel 2 Display: Note 8 Overall Pixel 2 wins

The good thing about you is, you always end up with clear decision, no matter it satisfies people or not. Not that "people phone is depend on what you need" bullshit. I really appreciate that courage

Nipun Sharma (19 days ago)
What?? You use the s-pen "all the time"? In your note 8 one month later video you said you hardly use it... "just ten times" here's proof- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=meiNnAxeZ68 (1:40 onwards). How do you explain this turnaround? Does this mean you don't stand by what you say? This puts a serious question on your credibility.
ben owen (19 days ago)
Note 8 wins in features and design and display over the Pixel 2 XL but Pixel 2 XL wins it for me because of its clean stock Android experience and in times updates.

Love my Note 8. Pixel isn't as functional.
Sam Ho (25 days ago)
Some key differentiators: Hardware - note8 supports 2 SIM cards, software - Pixel2 has apps like Lens which is not available in other devices.
KuttyJoe (25 days ago)
The first time I saw a Pixel 2 I was very surprised at how good it looks. I have a Note 8. It’s very thin.

Matt Adams (26 days ago)
this video wis nice and informative But it was IN NO WAY HELPFUL TO ME… I’m looking between the Note 8 and the Pixel 2 XL and you’ve got me at the same tie I was at before the video. I value photography, so IMO the Pixel takes the cake there. I value expandable storage, so the Note 8 takes that one. I value a great display and the Note 8 takes that one. I really value having the latest stable software, so the Pixel takes that one. I like the Note 8’s S-Pen, but I hate its Bixby button. I like the Pixel 2 XL’s finger print reader, but hate the lack of 3.5mm audio jack. I want to say it’ll come down to the size of the screen but the phones’ bodies have similar dimensions to each other and to my current iPhone 6s Plus. AAAAAAAAAA
Ryan Lambie (26 days ago)
Note8 FTW, clearly. I'm glad for the choice I've made. Hands down. 💯💪🏾👌🏾

Justin Dufrene (26 days ago)
i agree with almost everything except for the front facing camera...the pixel 2 xl is way better than the note 8's i get far better battery life on the pixel 2 xl than the note 8. i get 3-4 more hours with the pixel

Brian Hochhalter (26 days ago)
Just like Joe said, if you're a simplistic phone user the Google is your phone. However, If you want utility and premium features you buy the Note.
Gabriel Hunt (26 days ago)
I see you with the N64 with GoldenEye 007
h1a8 (27 days ago)
The most important feature of a smartphone is PERFORMANCE (speed, smoothness, and snappiness). Then come look and feel. Then come camera. Then come features. Then come battery life and screen. So although the note 8 is a better smartphone, many would prefer the Pixel because of the speed and camera.
sonis gtm (27 days ago)
Absolutely note 8..
Birthdaycakes (27 days ago)

Note 8 for the win!
The Mechanic (27 days ago)
Man everything u said i can accept even if i don't think is right but note 8 has a better battery?? seriously ??? your tests are rubbish or did samsung pay you? either way in real life usage the note 8 doesn't last nearly as long as pixel 2 xl.
Rahul Seth (28 days ago)
For me pixel 2 xl or pixel 2 both are almost perfect phone. This time they are better than iPhone
Michał Smyk (28 days ago)
Yes, pixel wins because it works and it works great😃

note 8 wallpaper plz
eurosonly (28 days ago)
The pixel has day one updates going for it before any other android phone getting them. It's also poor on quality management sadly so I went with the note 8 being a note fan already. It does suck balls waiting for the newer main version of android for like half a freaking year and never getting any smaller updates afterwards. But at least the phone has no issues. Well aside from some peoples' batteries going dead. Mine's been running flawlessly and it's the fastest least laggiest samsung phone ever made. Haven't tried the s8 but I imagine same goes for that one as well. Oh ya and it comes with a headphone jack which is soooo practical

Pixel 2xl 🔥🔥🔥
Overclock It (28 days ago)
Note 8 is great now but will it still be great in 2- 3 years when it's still rocking Oreo.You'll be forking out another $1K just to get the latest android OS update LOL. I know the Pixel will be rocking the latest and greatest for free.
D Riv (28 days ago)
Never mentioned how bad and annoying bixby is. It’s a deal breaker for most.
Matteo Servadio (29 days ago)
Oreo has been out since August and now, in January, Samsung is at the end at the beta program. In 2018 we shouldn't forgive a company for being such slow at updating phones, especially high-end products. Software matters, possibly more than hardware.
