For those crying for the U11 please read the AA webpage post: "We had also planned to include the ZTE Axon M, HTC U11+ and Essential Phone but problems with a defective unit, lack of availability and delays in shipping meant these three devices failed to make the cut. We picked these devices as they’re the latest from each manufacturer and in the case of the Galaxy Note 8, LG V30 and others, they are better than their flagship siblings from earlier this year"
Rubbish ! The test for gaming shows the best phones are Oneplus 5T followed by the Galaxy Note 8, Moto Z2 Force and LG V30. As bonus the Google Pixel 2. Yet in the video at 10:28 - 10:36 it says Oneplus 5T, Moto Z2 Force and the Huawei Mate 10 Pro. Huawei Mate 10 doesn't come near the Nokia 8. You guys are biased in this for Huawei.
Understood. The irony is that HTC has the audio breakthrough of the decade (and I say that as a professional audio engineer), and right now people are gushing over the camera quality over on AC saying how much better the photos are than the Note 8, without knowing what camera was used. They are going to flip when they find out the photos were not taken by the S9, and actually came from the U11, lol.
Well according to dexOMark that give all the phones the ratings the pixel 2 camera beats all those phones by a long shot and for best sound the Razer phone is the world's first thx certified speaker in a phone and that would mean that it is not even close to the other phones
Ok. I'm planning to buy (get money to buy ) a new phone, at my birthday 28th August (2018). I'm looking for a good flagship from late 2017 or 2018. A battery over 3330mah would be nice, and I also want a good camera. I'm not a selfie guy, so the front facing camera isn't thar important to me. I also want a good display. I don't mind 1080p displays, I just want a good looking display and style. Thanks!
Blah i think the Htc u11 should be here its on every other top 10 list. Huawei pretty soon is going to be black listed. AND how a 1080P screen ONE PLUS 1 compares to 2k phones is beyond ME.... the 835 gpu is going to be fast because its got to do less work. BUT whatever and oh ya the Zforce 2 should be rated higher on the value list because its only 375.00 . Paula how the hell does every other reviewer have ACCESS to the HTC U11 and theres wernt defective.. Erica Griffin, Flossy Carter, MKHBD, Phone ARENA, Pocketnow.. again whateva..
Note 8 shockingly good shaping smart phone i just love all the samsung mabile but after iphone x released now i m waiting for iphone + which would be i thing impressively good. so nice video keep it up i m looking forward to see you.
No phones for less than 500 bucks. We're not millionaires y'know!!! Some pretty decent Moto phones other than the Z and the Xiaomi Note 4. Really, best is not always the most expensive. Choose price brackets next time!
I am surprised about your Battery results. All other battery comparisons, I have read and watched so far, had the LG V30 at a lot higher endurance in the field against the same phones you had.
Also the low light performance results surprised me with the LG V30. This might seem me being biased, but the results due surprise me. Also I would like to know how the user vote on the pictures was made, did you placed the names of the devices to the pictures or was it anonym?
I just can't agree that the Huawei mate 10 has a better camera over the pixel 2 XL ... I've tested the mate 10's camera and it's very very great ... But it isn't as good as The pixel's , not even close
Pretty happy with the results, I got myself a 5t And it's a beast, however I do accept that the Note 8 and Mate 10 did better. Those are amazing phones, but you can't denie that the 5t, won't break the bank Lol
