I'm excited for the LG V30 and the Pixel XL2. I believe they will be the top phones in 2017 and the iPhone 8 will be close second to them.

There can never be a thing like "top" phone. By the way based on your logic top android phone of 2017 was already announced 4 months back.

I'm personally of the opinion that companies who release phones late in the year will always have an advantage of being able to see what the competition has it done before them.

I partially agree to it. But for last two three years, samsung galaxy has obliterated competition in flagship category even though they release mobiles in 1st half. I have not seen anything special from mobiles released in 2nd half. Except for incremental upgrades in processors like sd821 instead of sd820, etc. And i don't think it is much of an advantage.
