Probably, would be nice if they could squeeze them on the bezel though, helps prevent burn in.

Crazy to think Samsung released the phone of the year in April. I'm kinda mad I waited until this month to get it, but I did save $150.

Samsung's phone of the year was released in September(Note 8).

The best phone imo is the one you can recommend to the most people. The n8 size and price means that for way more people, the S8 is the best recommendation.

For those with the Pixel 2/XL, here's an app that will apparently help with the "dull" colors:
Make colors on the Pixel 2 and 2 XL more vibrant with Oreo Colorizer

No root required.

My P2XL comes in tomorrow! So excited.

I just got an S8+ and it's amazing. I'm shocked at how much of an upgrade over my Pixel XL it is.

I got my S8+ new for $570 2 weeks ago.

Sure it's 5 months later but that $150 pays for my phone service for 5 months.

CDMA is pretty much only confined to Verizon, Sprint and their MVNOs

Tried it out. The way it works is definitely going to have a performance hit. I'm just going to try to get used to these colors...

Just got my Pixel 2 XL. Honestly, the blue shift doesn't bother me that much. I'm used to the colors coming from the Pixel XL on sRGB.

My S6 edge wouldn't turn the screen on until I literally kicked it. After that, it sort out all my navigation at once since it lost GPS signal. Then I got a call, picked it up, and the phone beeped halfway through and restarted.

I now own a Note8.

Which is unsurprising when you're driving a 720p display. You get to use all that graphics grunt to actually crunch numbers, instead of displaying coloured dots on a screen.

It's called the Apple Trick.

Xperia XZ Premium/XZ1 and XZ1 Compact are pretty equal in speed

Soo, I don't know what's going on with my Pixel, but randomly it started opening Google Music at random and would keep cycling through tracks. Then it would open up Google Now Search over and over. Even after restarts and shutdowns it does it. I only stopped it by disabling Google Music. I tried using Spotify, but it also possibly has the same issue of opening when it wants to. Wtf. I didn't drop it or anything

The grainy look to it is what would bother me most, my Galaxy Nexus and Moto X 2014 both had that and it bugged the hell out of me.

I just got a Pixel XL (first gen) a few weeks ago as the price has dropped and love the display, first AMOLED screen I have actually been happy with. Anyone else have weird battery life though on Oreo? I can't tell if it is the OS, hardware or the poor signal at my house but it goes from having amazing standby to really, really shit seemingly random.

Man just got a Note 8 and coming from a S7 Edge I didn't think it'd be a huge leap but man was I wrong. This is a thing of beauty.

Anyone recommend any good glass screen protectors they like to use with this curve screen?

I have stopped using screen protector for my S7E since beginning of this year. Started a thread about it, guess what? It is holding up well! I get to enjoy the full beauty of glass on screen, no more air bubbles, color shift and running my finger across another layer of glass edge. /touch-wood

Long given up on screen protectors that works well on curved 2.5D screen. Plastic ones will leave the screen smeared, while glass ones dont really stay for long or fully cover it.

Sony's update for the Z5 does decrease battery consumption enough to be noticeable.

Yesterday I still had 78% on my Compact after a day's worth of browsing, updating apps and general mucking about with the phone both on WiFi and data, whereas I would usually have about 64%.

Also, I'm not sure if it's real or just some placebo, but it feels less hot after using it. Previously, it would get toasty just from quickly switching between pages on Dolphin.

I'm suitably impressed. Though it would appear Oreo will not be sent to the Z5 series. I can't really blame them. Pretty much everybody wants to put as much distance between themselves and the SD810/808 disaster.
