Samsung Galaxy Note 8 vs OnePlus 5 vs Google Pixel XL vs HTC U11: specs comparison


It's time for the Note 8 to go head to head with a solid bunch of heavy-hitters, namely the OnePlus 5, the Google Pixel XL, and finally, the HTC U11.

A respectable round-up indeed, those 3 are not exactly direct rivals to the Note 8 due to the latter being a productivity-oriented device that's still a bit mainstream.

As some consumers could end up being on the fence between the upcoming Note 8 and any of the aforementioned devices, a specs comparison that should help you with the decision is a mighty fine idea. Here's how these four devices compare against one another.
