If I also have to look at how fragile they are I would say Pixel 2XL. The iPhone X is definitely the most advanced but because it breaks easy it's more of a luxury item. The Pixel2XL is definitely not perfect but it's not a mile off.

I'll go with the Sony Xperia XZ Premium. Have this phone since launch and still love it. Does everything I want brilliantly. Granted if you're not a fan of bezels it won't be for you but I love its design. Great screen, battery and camera. The 960fps videos wow the crowd..

I had the S8 Plus, and own the Note 8, and X. They get the nod from me. I slept on the X, only to find out how good it is after buying one. It shines where the Note/S8 Plus doesn’t and vice versa.

Same here: hTC U11 Plus, the phone I liked more this year: anyway, I'm waiting for the next year flagship phones, to replace my actual hTC 10, a great phone that keeps going strong!

The x or Note 8 the best follow by V30. The Pixel 2 line is the biggest disappointment.
