Samsung Galaxy Note 8 wins 'most-favored' phone poll

Last week, we asked you what is your favorite new phone and after a few days and more than 5,000 people voting, the results are in.

With an overwhelming majority, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has won that vote: it captured over 36% of the vote or the affection of more than 1,800 people.

At the second place is the LG V30: LG's new phone has received extremely positive reviews and it has also attracted a lot of votes, 23.5%, or nearly 1,200 people.

The Google Pixel 2 XL came in third with 14.5%, but of course votes for it are all based on pre-release information, as the device is official, but not available just yet.

At the fourth place is the Apple iPhone X. The upcoming "bezel-less" iPhone got nearly 13% of the votes.

Take a look at the results right below.

Which new phone is your favorite?

Apple iPhone 8
Apple iPhone 8 Plus
Apple iPhone X
Essential Phone
Google Pixel 2
Google Pixel 2 XL
LG V30
OnePlus 5

Wow! Even with all the Samsung haters, isheep, and the Note 7 fiasco. This must be one impressive device.

My Exynos Dual Sim Note 8 is on the Fed Ex truck as we speak and my old Exynos S8 is on its way to the wild fires in California. So geeked up right now.

1.56% wants the iPhone 8. That's a statistical accuracy within the range of no one wanting the phone.

That's how phoneArena operates as we know. especially Victor, any article should have iPhone whether its related or not.

Holy cow Batman! Samsung Defense Force has taken over Phonearena! Puts an end to the foolish notion that Phonearena is Apple centric. Samsung troops have taken over, send in reinforcements, lol.

Pretty sure the notion isn't that the readers and voters are Apple-centric, just the editors. When the truth is that they post plenty of articles on whatever device is in the news, whether that's an Apple, Google, or by sheer volume Samsung.

Its not about the number of articles, it's about the tone of them. Certain authors here have a clear Apple bias. Overall, the site isn't too bad (like BGR, which is the propaganda arm of Apple).

Because the Note 8 got more votes? what I see if Android as a whole got more votes. All the phone use Android but one. So the vote simply went to the best platform. Facts show that Samsung phones are the best Android phones overall. Doesn't even platform have its most popular brand? With Windows its HP/Compaq. With Android its Samsung. With iOS its iPhone.

The tears! The tears! The Note 8 is simply the best large phone got can get. You don't have to like it, but you do have to live with it.

The better phone won this time. But it all comes down to personal preference as every phone has its own pros and cons.

I don't feel like any phone that was released this year has really garnered my attention all that much. Not saying there were not some great devices announced or released, but instead just stating that I feel like in terms of the excitement and innovation there wasn't that much this year as there was last year or the year before that.

As long as they keep the price around Mate 9 launch price (~$600)
