V30. Nuff said

I don't like the notch on the top of the Essential's display. I am enjoying my Pixel 2 XL and Moto Z2 Force with Mods. The Moto is one of the most underrated phones of 2017. I know two reviewers who have placed it in their top phones of the year.
Aaron Crawford (3 months ago)
Great list!  Was a good year for tech lovers.  Hopefully the prices don't keep going up so drastically.

Essential phone 3 Rd place

Oh, are you really a math professor, according to the comments? I don't like maths.
JL Chamberlain (3 months ago)
I like your videos, but I math. No offense.😄
Isaiah Quantz (3 months ago)
Oh my goodness!!!  It's a YouTuber that ACTUALLY knows that the Essential Phone exists!  Thank you for not being an ignorant snob and realizing that the Essential Phone is worth it!  Nice video, and more power to ya in the new year!

Note8 SS s8 plus Apple X Lgv30 pixel (CHEAP plastic)
M 215 (3 months ago)
Pixel 2 XL 🐼 is the best
Super Fleymez (4 months ago)
Essential should remove bottom bezel, improve cameras, make more use of notch cutouts, IP67/68, add a bigger model and make prices $499 for smaller $599 for the bigger one.

The finger print scanner is not really bad!

Where the hell is the LG V30
BloodFlow HigH (4 months ago)

Note is a beast.. My first smartphone was Note 3 and then i got Note 8.. its a beast! Love the vibrant and punchy colour screen :)
Derrick Nyakundi (4 months ago)
where do you get your wallpapers
Kenneth raiford (4 months ago)
wait what do u mean the camera is not better then the iphone x it is iPhone x takes great pics but the note 8 is a little better in sharpness and hdr and brighter colors
Kenneth raiford (4 months ago)
Jeff Springer don't have to use both to see witch one takes better pictures not to mention the iPhone makes alot of pictures colors look off but the iPhone x is supposed to have true to color yeah right
Jeff Springer (4 months ago)
+Kenneth raiford unless you use both daily it's really hard to form an opinion based off a limited set of photos from another individual. That limited set of photos is not usually representative of the way a phone's camera is actually used since most people take meticulous care in framing and shooting great shots in camera comparison videos. Real world use is typically much more spur of the moment. I'm not claiming the Note 8 has a poor camera but I do think it is slightly behind the iPhone X and Pixel 2 XL in average point and shoot quality.
Kenneth raiford (4 months ago)
Jeff Springer I have seen pics of both from super saf and I have seen pics of both but if that your opinion
Jeff Springer (4 months ago)
+Kenneth raiford I mean in my personal opinion the iPhone X takes better point and shoot photos on average. I own both phones and use them daily.
Mr Android Guy (4 months ago)
Are you crazy or not?You have included Blackberry keynote, Essential phone etc in the top 5 smartphone list but not the LG v30 which is actually the best phone and most complete phone of the year.....
Jeff Springer (4 months ago)
+Mr Android Guy I think you must be crazy or illiterate. I clearly stated these are my favorite smartphones of 2017, not the objective best. Learn to pay attention and comprehend things.
gr8ride411 (4 months ago)
I was sure you were going to have the V30 in the lineup. But I guess it didn’t add up. 🙃
Jim McNevin (4 months ago)
Check out there ratings method in an attempt to make this as objective as possible. https://youtu.be/kDvK0eJlBPQ
Jim McNevin (4 months ago)
The Pixel may have the better camera, but is it $500 better?
M Morales (4 months ago)
Nice selection of phones!
Shane Loveday (4 months ago)
No lgv30?
Muzzem Adnan (4 months ago)
I currently using ip 5s and now thinking on switching to keyone. Will it be a good purchase and will I have the same experience between both phones? In terms of speed (not a gamer,multitasking more on social media n youtube) and media consumption ( im used to the ip5 small screen)...
Imran Ahmad (4 months ago)
I never knew that you were a math professor and which University do you work at and what math do you teach? I would love to have you as a math professor, you seem like a super cool professor.
Mr RC (4 months ago)
iPhone X has the unforgivable notch and equally, the Essential has the inverted nipple! 😂
Mitchell Nash (4 months ago)
Anyone had any issues with dust getting in behind the glass covering the cameras? Or even dust on the lens itself? Its happened to me and shows up as a small black mark/smudge
andyH_England (4 months ago)
All very subjective as my favorites include the xz premium, HTC U11 PLUS, Mate 10 Pro and Pixel 2. Reviewers tend to ignore Sony, no idea why, but they are some of the best phones out there. The U11 plus is what the Pixel 2 xl should have been and is £270 cheaper to boot for better spec, if that is not in your top 5 I will be shocked. The mate 10 will excite those that are hung up on bezel size. A monster phone, £350 less than the Note 8 and no way the average consumer would buy the Note as a value alternative between the two. I suppose the bezels on the Pixel 2 are too big but IMO a better bet than the Pixel XL 2 if a smaller phone is your choice. Lots of deals for the new Pixels, unheard of last year, so suspect sales are poor; no surprise as the U11 and Mate 10 pro offer better phones at much cheaper prices. Looking forward to your “value” top 5 as the Note and Pixel 2 XL will surely not make the cut!
Stop Media Fakery (4 months ago)
You make me laugh, you're one of the most blatant Apple shills I've ever seen. You're comment is designed to make you appear remotely reasonable, but in reality it's just your usual thinly veiled attack against Samsung. I feel embarrassed to read your comments at times, but feel sorry that you can post propaganda and get away with it.

Is the note 8 wallpaper from backdrops as well?
tflynn124 (4 months ago)

Essential PH-one: opens launcher, lags. Opens camera gallery, lags. Lol
Jeff Springer (4 months ago)
+Paris Holland and yes, the Note 8 is also running a beta build of Oreo.
Jeff Springer (4 months ago)
+Paris Holland because it's my phone, and I want to run a beta on it? Pretty self explanatory.
Paris Holland (4 months ago)
Jeff Springer Why is it running a beta? Are any of the others running a beta? Lol
Shawn Vega Velez (4 months ago)
Even though I use the Samsung S8 I like the Blackberry, Essential and Google Pixel 2(not the XL). I'm really looking forward to see what Blackberry and Essential do in 2018 for a possible purchase. Great video.
Jeff Springer (4 months ago)
+Shawn Vega Velez thanks man! S8 is still great, basically a smaller Note 8 with no dual camera or s pen.
Boris Boca (4 months ago)
No LG V30, HTC U11+ ?
Khaled Ali (4 months ago)
No mate 10pro???
Péter Friedrich (4 months ago)
Or the U11?
Boris Boca (4 months ago)
Jeff Springer yeah do the review of the U11+ when it arrives. I'm thinking of getting it as well.
Jeff Springer (4 months ago)
+Boris Boca the V30 is a good phone, but most of the stuff it does for me the Note 8 does. I use it for listening to high quality audio. I don't have a U11+ yet just ordered one.
