I've had my Nexus 6p for a minute and kinda itching for something new. This might do it.

iPhone X has an OLED screen made by Samsung that has less resolution the S8

X is 2436 x 1125

S8 is 2960 x 1440

same size screen

Pixel XL has a smaller screen but higher res too, not OLED though

LG V30 is though and that too has a higher res

all of them apart from Pxeil XL also have HDR 

Apple do the whole super retina and true tone or whatever though

Reading over the features and nothing is new, some of it has been around for years. I could unlock my phone with my face 5 years ago aswell as charge it wirelessly

Will be all phones soon enough. The auto translate with the buds looked sick though.

Will either be the XL, Note 8 or LG V30 for my next phone.

V30 for me. looking to see how much carphone warehouse wants for it

XL doesnt have a headphone jack or wireless charging, although the camera has me interested and itll get quick updates. it has a P-OLED screen as well which should be a step up

Note 8 just doesnt excite me, it's an S8+ with a pen, smaller battery and boxier shape with a worse placed finger print sensor (even though i dont use them)

I got the Note 8. My first android phone in 5 years. Made that leap from IPhone. 

I really like it. The pen is handier that you would think. Personally prefer the boxier shape compared to the S8. It depends. Q30 has a more typical aspect ratio so for a phone that big it will be more cumbersome to use unless you have bigger hands. But I'm glad I moved over. I was so underwhelmed by the iPhone X announcement that th next day I ordered the note 8 on preorder. 

 

The main thing that put me off the V30 is that it doesn't look like a premium handset. But it is cheaper than the note 8 so there in lies the compromise.

Want the X.

But the price and fact apple removed 128GB.

64GB I might be alright with, judging by current use

128GB would be plenty

256GB is just way too much.

The entry iphone x should have 128gb not 64gb especially with that price.

Not ready to go back to Android nothings really tempting me, if I did the only one i'd be interested in would be the S8 since the Pixel 2 5" is:/

Huawei Mate 10 leak

I shouldn't cream myself over a fingerprint sensor location. But given that I own at note 8. It's understandable. 

Nice looking phone but is it plastic or premium build? I can't tell.

So the Pixel 2 XL has the same POLED screen made by LG that's in the V30 and it's getting very bad reviews. Colour inconsistencies, terrible viewing angles, graininess smh.

The 2 phones I was choosing between for my next one ffs.

keep in mind it'll probably be as good as phones released in the last year, just not as good as the latest samsung OLEDs. it may also be a calibration issue that could be sorted through a software update. or for some reason they gave google good OLEDs and used crappier ones

Nah the pixel 2 XL and V30 have the same issues as it's the exact same screen.

Reviews saying the smaller pixel 2 screen is miles better, and even the original XL from last year is better.

Hopefully it is a calibration issues that can be patched.
