A comparison of three of 2017’s best.

Each and every year there are certain handsets that stick out above the rest. There were quite a few devices this year that managed to do just that, and three of them are the Pixel 2 XL, Galaxy Note 8, and iPhone 8 Plus. All three of these offer some of the best experiences you can find on a smartphone in 2017, and one of our forum users decided to see how each one compared to one another.

As you’d expect, this got quite a lot of people talking and chiming in with their own thoughts on the comparison. Here’s what some of you had to say.

I currently have in my lineup, iPhone 8+, Note8, and the pixel 2xl. Each of them had their time to be top dog. This weekend I tried the iPhone 8+ again. It failed to dislodge the pixel as top dog… Not even close. I just turned the Note8 back on…. We’ll see what happens….

I absolutely love my Pixel 2 XL. That phone will be a keeper for me. With that being said, I’m looking to get the Note 8 as well. Waiting for Black Friday.

I have both the N8 and 2XL. I really like my 2XL except for a minor blue tooth issue with my podcasts / music as it won’t display artwork or artist on my 2017 Prius Prime. Also in my workspace, I get reception with my N8 (1 bar) and zero reception with my 2XL.

I’m interested to see how your evaluation pans out.
