Samsung Note 8 would also be my Smartphone of the year but that fingerprint scanner where it's located ruined everything and it's predecessor blowing up scared me. So LG V30 takes it for me!

I hate Samsung software, I just cannot stand the icons, confusing interface & omg the unwanted apps that cannot be uninstalled. I really don’t know why Samsung still cannot provide a clean simple Android experience.

You are saying that the samsung note 8 is the best phone and you are wearing an apple watch ???!!!!

LG V30 is well deserved "Most underrated". It should "Best something".

Bad software? Thats what ROMs are for
Jack Wolf (15 days ago)
Yes indeed Note 8 is the best phone of century I had it for 5 days and I returned it simply because I can't live without the Photo Face tag and Quick contact short cut of my 3 years old Galaxy S5. Sorry Samsung. I dropped S7, S8 and Note 8 to go back to my good old S5. if S9 has those features I'll buy one even if it cost me $1,000

Yeah that’s why he’s wearing an Apple Watch 😂

Good choice... Note 8
bigoneish (16 days ago)
The note is not worth it in my opinion. Too expensive. You could get the s8 or the s8+ which is practically the same phone minus the pen for a way better deal.
Roger Wittekind (16 days ago)
What about best resolution? And the Sony XZP is the only one with a 4k display. And if you enable and use the magnification gesture then it is real easy to see just how clear 4k is. As for the Notes. Heck the old WM6 phones can still do things the Notes can't.

Shalonda (17 days ago)
I’m not fond of all the Samsung apps either but like you said Note 8 is a beast. I see you Samsung🍀, I’m anticipating the A8 and A8+ for this year😃.

Drew Racht (19 days ago)
hey! im ready for an upgrade from an old iphone. i want a change, but the iphone x looks amazing. im torn between the iphone x and the note 8. if i choose the note 8 and dont use the s-pen, will it still be worth it? or should i just get the iphone x? thanks and have a blessed day
Drew Racht (17 days ago)
Shalonda thanks!!! i think i’ll take that option into consideration.
Shalonda (17 days ago)
I hear you, I have a 6s as my daily driver and Moto G5 plus as my back up... Honestly, it all depends on you and if you’re willing to wait. The A8 & A8+ (2018) will be launched soon. S9/S9 plus is right around the corner...I would wait for the S9 series and go into Best Buy and test IPhone X and Samsung phones. Hopefully this helps you. Good luck on whatever you decide to purchase🍀😃
Drew Racht (19 days ago)
there is also the s8 plus. if i dont use the spen what should i get??
mohan reddy (19 days ago)
Iphone x
therealknapster (19 days ago)
470 different made this year and probably most years for 10 + years and still no one worth buying yet :( . 10 day battery life please that was a industry standard and my monies is waiting . . . still for you . Amazon kindle 6 weeks battery life with 6 " screen ;)
Navaneeth Anand (19 days ago)
i just used s8 and note 8 and man those are the best. pixel 2 looks like a joke
william hepburn (19 days ago)
The honor 9 was a solid phone until I broke the screen as parts take weeks to come to the Uk I now have the iPhone 8 Plus which I must say is the best iPhone I have owned in terms of battery life

Dean Shufflebotham (20 days ago)
I've owned a fair few smartphone this year I just can't hold one down for more than a month or two . I keep buying and selling ' playing the field' . Currently on the pixel XL 2 - I don't see all the complaints about the display . Likewise it's not amazing like you all keep banging on about

Terry Alexander (20 days ago)
I really want to know why people chose the Note 8 over the Google Pixel 2 / 2XL? I see so many rave reviews about it, and a lot of people use it as there daily driver. However the Note 8 is called the smartphone of the year, but never heard any solid reasons as to why. I want to know because soon I want to get either the Pixel 2 XL or the Note 8.

Stik (22 days ago)
I screwed up. I picked up a Pixel 2 and used it for a bit. Once you use one, you notice every stutter and hic-up on every other smartphone that exists (except maybe the Razer phone). I can't make an unbiased pick on a phone of the year unfortunately.
sic22l (22 days ago)
5:35 The other way round. It's Gogle who forces OEMs to install their apps even when manufacturer solutions are miles better (and pretty much all of them are).

Nick Timianis (22 days ago)
I’ve been watching all these videos for the last 3 or 4 months trying to figure out what phone I should get into to next. I’ve had an iPhone since the 3. I’m now at the 6. I’m not a fan of anyone. Every time I got a new phone I’ve looked into the androids but the software issues always led me to the iPhone. Instead of listening to what others were saying I decided this time to try it myself. A couple of weeks ago I went out and bought the galaxy A5 2017 edition to experience the android software myself with I need a phone for. I’m not sure how much of a difference there is between the A5 and the Note8 or S8 plus but this phone sucks and it’s going back. I’m constantly pushing the back button, the apps open slower than my iPhone 6, I’m constantly touching the screen on the sides which takes me somewhere else ( maybe that could be fixed by using a case), I really would like to get the Note8 but I don’t want to spend the $1300 here in Canada and hate it. I like the X but I want a bigger phone and I’m bored with anything less than the x because they all look the same. So if anyone has used the A5 and now has a Note8 please chime in because I don’t want to stay with Apple.
Shalonda (17 days ago)
Also, consider One plus 5T in your research, it’s a beast!
Shalonda (17 days ago)
Nick Timianis, if you don’t plan on using Spen then can you wait on S9 plus or A8+ (2018)? I understand you don’t want to spend $1,000+ on a phone yet you want a big display. Please research the S9+ and A8+ (2018) before making any decisions. I hope this helps. Good luck 🍀 with your purchase. Note 8 is a great devise, I’ve seen it in person and it performs well but keep your options open. As a consumer, you should get the most bang for your buck!

Note 8 is the BEAST! 👊
Timi Akinlonu (22 days ago)
iPhone = 233mil Samsung *s8 and note8* = 33 mil etc If you count all the phones Samsung makes it equates to over 320mil sold in 2017
joey martinez (22 days ago)
Jamie S I agree about everything you said but I think Samsung would be find with out ff stereo speakers yes it would sound better but it would have thicker bezels so they could probably put a small speaker in the ear piece so it could in-prove the sound a little bit and it would not take a lot of space so they could do that but it was just a idea.
joey martinez (22 days ago)
My phone of the year would probably be the galaxy note 8
Dotun Makun (22 days ago)
You are 100% right. The galaxy note 8 is the best all round smartphone of 2017. No contest

Chansamai Ly (23 days ago)
note 8, a all in one multi-tasking powerhouse that replaces a lot of things on the go iphone 10 is just another piece of the apple puzzle that really can't function alone pixels...google's trying to be apple too hard 1+5t...now if they can get more carriers to support their phone

Kabir Gill (23 days ago)
ok fine, the note 8 might be the smartphone of the year, but there is no doubt that the iphone x is 2nd place.

Bojan Tomic (23 days ago)
Ew. Let's see in few months when Note 8 starts lagging heavily. 😂 S8 did that from the start.

Really?!? Iphone have the worst camera...
Mo Ruhid (23 days ago)
Why doesnt he talk about the awkward fingerprint scanner placement or the battery life of the note 8, s8+ is a better phone at a better value than the note 8 he shows clear favouratism xD

I have the z2 force and happy with it. But when the note8 drops to a reasonable price for me, I'll get get.
Emad Ahmed (23 days ago)
Yes Jon, you know how to make a choice. Your faggot co-worker, Brandon Russell, chose iPhone X as phone of the year, so fuck that guy.
bally bilal (23 days ago)
joke of the year...! no note 6 no iphone 9 they r on the bed doing 69... ...SUBSCRIBE...
Travis Sivart (23 days ago)
I just want to point out that in his Note 8 review John said he thought the V30 screen was better and then never mentioned it again as if he never had that opinion
matt halle (23 days ago)
I am still using my Iphone 6+. Been waiting to upgrade. Should I get the Note 8 or wait 3 more months for the Galaxy 9+?
Shalonda (17 days ago)
matt halle, I would wait and test both in person before purchasing. Happy shopping🍀😃

Shalonda (17 days ago)
Yes, it’s crazy,...I paid $750 for my iPhone 6s over a year and half time period....I’m not going to drop $1,000 on a phone. There’s so many options to choose from. If my 6s dies, My Moto G5 plus has me covered. Shout out to the budget phones, BLU Vivo 8, Xiaomi Mi A1, Honor 6x/7x, Redmi Note 4, Moto e4, Moto g series, Samsung a3, Nokia 6, etc
Aishwarya Net (23 days ago)
True, phones can do much more now than they did then. Point taken ❤
Chansamai Ly (23 days ago)
well, if you're just buying a "mobile device" to be used as a phone, you shouldn't be looking into $1000 mobile devices, there are sub $100 devices with displays on them that can easily phone/text. Other than that $1000 better mean the device can do much more than just phone and text without needing other proprietary equipment/software
