Very well deserved Samsung, nothing matches the versatility of the Note 8 overall...
ObjectiveKing, 03 Jan 2018The Note 8 display is the best, agreed but not when many of the Note 8 phones I've seen have c... moreBruh, just wondering if Samsung has murdered your whole family or something? because you seemed so hateful towards Note 8 for its display, camera capabilities, durability, weight, battery, design etc... having 3.5mm audio jack might make you sick of it too, I guess ha ha... not many people blame nor care about LG phones nowadays as there's no as many users as Note 8 users obviously,just fyi.
P.S- well, seems like the poll results has proved that it was a great phone for 2017.Note 8 has also won as the best all rounder Android phone in Android Authority too, so there ain't much for me to go against it.
Ok fine, I'll admit that the V30 is actually awesome. I understand your point of view.
However, its just a poll, not a reviewers' decision. And the people can only vote for the most marketed, influencing phone, I guess which is Samsung here.
Plus, check the geographical location of the voters. Most of them around Mumbai in India. It hardly speaks out the world's choice, or does it? :)
So, I'll just tell you the reasons I skipped V30 for myself and set eyes on Note 8/ S9:-
1. The dual camera is something I like in "Wide+Tele" combo, not "Wide+Extra Wide". But this is just my taste, not a judgment on V30 which is ok in being different.
2. The slow motion videos and video modes are a must. And the V30 doesn't excel at it. 720P@120 fps and 4K30 are both achieved decently by my wife's Redmi Note 4 ($200 or so).
The good audio, presence of FM, and the camera of V30 caught my attention positively, but I had my doubts on V30's high ISO performance, given its 1.0um pixel size, compared to 40% better in Note 8. Like a DSLR with f5.6 zoom lens, its ok to have weaker aperture but not a weaker sensor...
Again its just my set of opinions. And even reviewers agree that Note 8 is a big all rounder which does most things ok.

Sales may represent better availability, better deals and offers and better marketing but can't represent superiority of a product.

Let's not bring silly stereotypes in here, ok? It's very childish.
vivek, 03 Jan 2018mate series are the bestAt what? Please elaborate.
Well deserved obviously, Samsung makes best smartphones, hard to argue about that
The Note 8 is one hell of a phone even with a few negatives. My few concerns are; not enough battery capacity, too elongated n narrow, not a fan of curved screens and the 18.5:9 aspect ratio. Fix those and u have a true KING of the hill..in my view.
samsungonly, 03 Jan 2018Samsung sell phone the most ,more than 300million that mean thet have most fan tooV30 also kills the Note 8 in low light. I've had the Note 5 and 7 but the Note 8 is just too much phone. Heavy, narrow, long. All you get is the pen when the V30 is much more user friendly form factor, with a better experience, videography and photography. Better audio for music and recording. Better call reception, durability, battery life and no issues with not turning on or waking up randomly.
Plenty of objective reviews here.
V30, the real man's choice.
Samsung sell phone the most ,more than 300million that mean thet have most fan too
ItÂ’s easy to tell that the majority of gsmarena audience is Samsung fans. The fact is that for every note 8 sold Apple sells 10 iPhones. Or even more.
ObjectiveKing, 03 Jan 2018https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIrztyyhlwMLOL that reviewer sucks and is biased.
Rafe Firman, 03 Jan 2018LIKE if you think lg v30 is the best all round device, not by votes but by sound mind!It lacks a stylus which counts toward the Note 8's greater versatility.
The iPhone X should be higher than the 5T, which is just a rehash of the original model.
