A review or rating shouldn't decide which is your favorite.

Exactly. It's your opinion, not theirs...they can't decide what you want. I'm a V30 squad though.

It seems like Android trolls do their job very well as usual. This website is swamped with trolls, bullies, idiots and assholes all who think Android/Samsung is their mommy. Drain the swamp!!

Piyath, I don't need you to comment on my thread. You've insulted people enough and I don't like people who insult others, it says a lot about you. Good luck with your life.

HAHAHA! I got a good laugh out of that one. It seems like Apple trolls do their job well as usual. This website is swamped with trolls, bullies, idiots and @$$holes all who think iPhone/Apple is their "savior/God/leader". Drain the swamp!! There I fixed it for you. Its seems you are made because the Note 8 got more votes? Shouldn't it? I mean the iPhone 8 is a rehash of the 6, 6S, 7 and should be called the 7S. You're mad at people picking what they like. But if Apple had the longest line, then you'd be saying, Apple at the top as always...best company blah blah blah. Attackign Android blah blah blah. You are doing exactly what you claim other do. Yet you never get banned. I find it so amazing. People here get to cuss, start fights and every post is pure BS. They never get banned. But people who talk sense and love tech get banned. I hope PA good legal representation.

I really like what LG did with the V30. I think that's is the phone of the year. However is sad to see what LG management did with the launch.

I'm really into multimedia consumption and usage so I think V30 is a really good device.

Depends IMO For me the camera and battery life are the most important feature Both of which are quite hard to predict based on specs

I wanted to say the same thing. Smart people do think alike.

A single review wouldn't, but multiple reviews tell me if a device is significantly lacking in certain areas despite the advertisements of the manufacturer. If the Note 8 were significantly lacking in the camera, battery, performance, versatility, compatibility, etc. departments, I'd easily pick the V30 over it.

The X is doing quit well(at the time of this comment), I'm actually a little surprised.....perhaps all that sheep talk isn't so stupid after all smh. The notch alone is enough for me to consider passing it up but the lack of touch id and a home button smh forget about it.

I see far more "sheep" behaviour from Samsung fans around here, always prophesising the next Note will be best phone ever, gonna buy etc... Don't see many iPhone users raving about the 8/8+ or even the X much.

Most Sammy fans usually have a reason to rave about the Note, not so much this time around but iPhone fans have even less to rave about, I don't even have to explain why no one is talking about the 8/8+ and the X is simply not what most people wanted so a let down to say the least. The Note 8 is nothing special but I only have one complaint and that is the battery size, to that end the S8+ is better imo but of course someone will always argue that the S-pen is worth the lose in battery size.

That's not even true. But its ok. We already know you see what you want and ignore what you want.

Samsung has the most negative stuff said about them vs Apple. The reviews here on phones, and tests cause more of us to say sometime against the barrage of attacks on Android and Samsung. But yet those same don't happen with Apple. We stand-up for what we like and when you are wrongly or unfairly always being called out for things that are equally true or worse on your side is what you're suppose to do. Samsung gets a bad wrap here. Stop acting like you don't see that and why Samsung fans be raving all the time.

Samsung as a fact, have improved their products, on the fact their fans and tech blogs berrated things they have done. Fact - Because the S5 design was so criticized, they made a significant improvement with the S6. The S4 software was so heavily criticized, that most of it was removed with the S5. Even though the S always had a great camera, it did pale in comparison to other OEM's and so they improved it and now the Galaxy camera since the S5 has been unmatched and only recently beaten. The Note 7 was highlighted to a point that Samsung made an even more aggressive battery testing program to ensure customer safety. On the reverse, because hardly anything is negatively said about Apple products in general, then Apple simply keeps making things worse because nothign bad they do is ever seen as such and they keep doing it and its been that way since IOS 7. Until Apple fans stop buying iPhone that offer no benefit, then Apple won't do better. The low iPhone 8 sales is probably the start of the fact, Apple didn't get over this time. The S8 is a cheaper better option vs the iPhone 8 and that is why the sales are goign up. This is the wake-up Apple needs at the least.

Dude, you gotta check out the video by Chris Perillo. I don't like him or always agree with him, but he makes a heck of an argument on why the iPhone X isn't worth a honorable mention. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W0fgYiNQK3c
