If budget is not an issue I'd choose the note 8 hands down.

Otherwise the oneplus 5T for price/performance value and near stock android experience.

Should also consider the pixel 2 XL, best camera on the market right now.

the s8/s8+/ note 8 are basically the same platform and specs. very high quality build and Bixby too. also u actually can take vids and pics under water with no issues.

the 5T is stock an WILL receive updates much quicker

I made this decision amongst these phones apart from the 5T a few months ago. I did look at the latest apple phones as well (over priced) along with the note 8 as well in the ridiculous price category.

That being said 5T is an amazing phone ... I had some buyers regret having spent some dollars on an S8+ ... for me key must have features were 6inch amoled display ... dual sim ... large battery ... wireless charging.

5T ticks all the boxes apart from wireless charging for slightly less coin.

Wireless charging was a must have for me so my decision came down between the S8 and S8+.

Over all I will give samsung s8+ over this due to the water resistance, wireless charging, better amoled screen (higher resolution and useful viewing angle).

How long does the S8 battery last you?

I think that is my only gripe with the S8+ battery life isnt too great but wireless charging is the solution to that particular issue.

i've gotten 15 hrs on the S8+ already with a good bit of use (which is basically working from my device - logistics and supply chain).... with the iphone plus models and same usage i'd charge at least twice during the same period.

with the OP5T it's quite good bang for buck

the prices of the two is almost the same - 5t and s8 around 500 and 560usd .

difference is simple convenient things :
S8 - wireless charging, headphone jack, water proof and expandable memory. i never thought how useful these features till its gone.


5t - specs the processor is the same - but more RAM

i own the 2 devices and i prefer the s8 simply fast and the display is topnotch

I am currently recommending Huawei Mate 10 and P10 to anyone who is looking for a new flagship phone. I switched from Apple and I have used Samsung. The camera is the best of anything I have ever used in a phone, and it is better value for money. It works just as well as all other android phones IMO. I know some of you would not touch anything bmobile, but I got my mate 9 off of my postpaid plan for $1,200.00, which was a steal of a deal and a no-brainer for value. The only reason I believe to pay more for any other phone (Samsung or Apple, don't know the 1+ brand personally) is the waterproofing. It is nice to know you can take an accidental dip without any consequences.

If price is not an issue, note 8.

If it is, then OP5T is the best bang for the buck.

I find purchasing the previous year's flagship to be a solid choice for those on a reasonable budget.
I purchased the Oneplus 2 last year when the 3T was out and I purchased the LGV20 last month (gave my wife the OP2). The Oneplus's have gotten kind of expensive as an alternative flagship option IMO (still significantly cheaper than the Samsungs though)

Got the LGV20 for US$320 with 1 year warranty. With that I got a phone running Nougat out of the box with a dual camera setup, 5.7'' screen [and 2 inch secondary screen] and a host of other features. The V20 actually has a better screen resolution than many 2017 flagships OP5T included.

May not have wireless charging and waterproof but those are not necessarily features that made or broke a deal for me. TBH I am not sure how much normal users can actually notice if a phone running Snapdragon 820 or 835.

I had a oneplus1 and now a OnePlus 3... Compared to my Samsung's from previous.... It's infinitely better.. simply because OnePlus gives u pure Android... Samsung junks up ur Android OS and then their infamous battery-drain after about 6 months...

Then the price is ridunkulous...
