    It was a Forum poll. The Z2 was third I believe, behind the. Note 8 and the Pixel 2. But it only received like 2 votes (probably me and Pere ) and the Pixel 2 around 4 votes and the Note 8 had like 8 votes. I think most people don't know that to see the polls or to participate when using Tapatalk you have to select the menu option > Web View (to open with your browser) > cast your vote and return to Tapatalk

    I figure people would be griping about the price not the size...

    Haha. I've been griping about the size of this monster, since before it came out. Since the S9 and S9+ will also be their respective sizes, I'll just wait for the S10, or try a different company.:(

    At Target tonight. They had some 8s on display. Ok. I'm wrong. They don't seem to be as big as they used to be...or mine has just grown to meet it. LOL. I swear the 5 was a lot bigger. Is the 8 skinnier then the 5? I have to admit, it's not bad. But...not shatterproof. And can we stop this stupid trend of glass backs? I despise glass backs.
    Saw the X in person, too, finally. It's not bad. Much smaller then I pictured. Nice...but not for a grand? Madness.

    You're absolutely right. I used to be one of those people. Now that I have a device that big, (S8+) along with using my wife's Note 8, I think it's the perfect size for well, everything. I never use my laptop for anything anymore... unless I have to edit a video.
    That said, all three are great choices. You really can't go wrong with any of the newer devices these days.

    note 5 was a bit wider and thicker. I agree about the glass backs. I missed the plastic, not as slippery and you could change the color without adding to thickness.

    Though I do care about the material used, I put a case and glass screen protector on my phones as soon as I take them out of the box. I was hoping the shatter shield that was on the Droid Z Force would have taken off to where other manufacturers would have adopted it so I could rock these phones raw dog.

    This was an awesome year for phones. Outside of HTC and the Essential Ph-1, if you buy any of those phones on the list you will be satisfied. And even both the HTC phones and Essential Ph-1 had some positive takeaways.

    When I talk to people about phones I get a feel of the person. And some people want all the bells and whistles that come with a Samsung phone such as the Note 8. But there are some like me who choose Google because we like the fact we are already on 8.1 while most phones are still on 7.1.1. There are some who like the Apple ecosystem because there are apps that are either better on the iPhone than android or is only on the iPhone. And some love the build quality of a Motorola. They know that it is built to last, and with it being nearly stock they are normally next in line to get the next Google updates. If you are a rising YT star the LG V30 is a phone you may want to consider as it come loaded with the tools to help make that possible.

    My point is that the top 3 above do not necessarily paint the picture of how great of a year we had in 2017. And I hope that companies like Motorola and LG do not slack off and give up because they found themselves looking up to Samsung yet again and are having a hard time getting through to both the Samsung and Apple armies.
