Google Pixel 2 vs iPhone 8 vs Galaxy Note 8 vs LG V30: size comparison

The Google Pixel 2, the Apple iPhone 8, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and the LG V30, the four proverbial horsemen of the smartphone apocalypse, are coming soon, and leaks and rumors have already given us a ton of juicy details.

So we did not just sit around and wait: we used all that information to come up with a size comparison that shows how those full-screen displays compare between each other (and how the Pixel compares to all of them with its 16:9 screen).

In order to make this size comparison, we had to wait for what seemed like the most reliable leaks. Here is the sizes that they gave us:

Google Pixel 269.3 mm145.3 mm
Apple iPhone 871 mm143.5 mm
Samsung Galaxy Note 874.6 mm162.5 mm
LG V3075.2 mm151.4 mm
*Information based on leaks.

With no further ado, here is our size comparison between the Google Pixel 2 vs Apple iPhone 8 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 8 vs LG V30:

There is one thing that is immediately obvious - and it's obvious, but it's still shocking to actually see it on a picture - the screen on the Pixel 2 is so much smaller than all the rest.

For all else, the Note 8 and V30 stand out as the widest of the bunch and hardest to handle with a single hand, but they have the larger displays as well. The iPhone 8 clearly has the biggest screen-to-body ratio, but it also comes with a weird wedge that gives its screen a very peculiar shape. And the Pixel 2 makes up for the large bezels with dual front firing speakers, but is that enough?

So... which one of these four bad boys are you planning on buying this fall?

Weird comparing the size of the devices listed, it has no barring on decisions as both the iPhone and Pixel are available in larger sizes. 2 different classes of flagship devices there - Pixel 2, S8, iPhone 8, and G6, then Pixel 2 XL, Note 8, iPhone 8 Plus, V30.

To me the LG V30 looks the best.

As awesome as the pixel's a not a factor since that phone and google are locked into verizon and not everyone will sign up with verizon just for the pixel

WOW, the Note 8 is larger than the Pixel 2, how enlightening. How about comparison to something a little more relevant, like the Pixel 2 XL?

I don't see how can the V30 have a 18:9 ratio screen. Just sitting next to the Note9 its apparent that its not a 2:1 ratio screen. Looking at the Note9 is an obvious 2:1 ratio. Its 2 squares put together. From the picture, the V30 is NOT. Either the picture is wrong or the specification for the V30 is wrong.

Wrong specs probably.

Your eyes are wrong. It's 2:1.

The note is not a 2 to 1 ratio, it's longer than that.

The Pixel 2 is already outdated and boring, the sales will be even lower than Pixel 1, now that people are used to small top and bottom bezels. The LG Pixel XL 2 will have a chance, though.

Used to it? Hardly. There are just the folks who purchased s8s and g6s, which is not a whole lot of people in the scheme of things. And few, if any, of those phone owners will consider another phone purchase so quickly. Every s8 that I see is covered with some awful case and screen protector that doesn't lie flush with the phone's surface. In other words, they all look like such crap in real world use, you can't even see the lack of bezels

I will say that the Pixel is probably the least attractive phone listed based on the exterior hardware design alone, but taken into account what Google did with last year's Pixel, I'm most excited about the Pixel 2 over any of the other phones.

I'll give credit where credit is due. The iphone8 has the best aesthetics from this bunch. Ssve for that weird cutout

It's all subjective- For me its the Note 8 as I love the curve screens but either way they all look good and this is a good comparison of yet to be released devices. However, only time will tell if they will be what the leaks show. I love this as the tech lovers really make out. The only thing that bothers me some what are going to be the asking prices for these devices.

Nah it's not the best aesthetically because of that ugly "notch" had it not been their i would have agreed with you. Aesthetic wise i would give it to the S8 and not even to the Note 8 because without the side curves in the S8 the Note 8 bezels seem bigger.

All of them are unofficial.

So true The iPhone 8 is nothing but a rumour. Apple has not even said there is a iPhone 8.

"There is one thing that is immediately obvious - and it's obvious, but it's still shocking to actually see it on a picture - the screen on the Pixel 2 is so much smaller than all the rest." Victor and if the iPhone 7s still has its lower resolution HD 4.7" display vs the Pixel 2 higher resolution full HD 5.0" display. Then how shocked will you be then?

Not shocked at all. Resolution has not been a topic that I am concerned about in the last 4-5 years. But if you care, you can vote for the Pixel with your dollar. It is my favorite Android phone.

I vote for the XL. For VR, and now with AR headsets coming down the pipes as well. Then resolution definitely matters.

Exactly How the hell can you compare phones that are not even released or even 100% conformed what they will have.
