Pixel 2 XL. I have the S8+ and it's a beautiful piece of hardware but the Samsung software and slow updates kill the entire experience.
The Samsung software is much less apparent then the old S3 - S7 days but it's still present and it ALL sucks.
If Samsung offered a "Samsung Experience" or "stock" option (similar to the Essential PH-1) with reasonably fast updates they would crush every other premium Android experience. They are missing a huge opportunity to pickup the purist crowd that in most cases would never buy their phones. Carriers also pose a huge roadblock for this approach.
Anonymous, 18 Nov 2017The Samsung Galaxy s8+ , the HTC ur11+ , and the Google Pixel xl 2 - Which one should I buy ? ... moreI have note 8 so between those 3 options I'd get the s8+ but it really just depends on your preference and needs.

Piolo, 17 Nov 2017The best phone i have ever had so far.. no issues with the screen, brilliant colors.. camera i... moreIt's a fine device, awesome display, top shelf cam and feature packed. Been using mine for months, no lag, iris scanner unlocks faster than any device out there. When you consider the price at $639.00 there's not much that compares. I've used a few different screen proctectors, Tech Armor 3D is my favorite.
The best phone i have ever had so far.. no issues with the screen, brilliant colors.. camera is perfect especially in the dark. Battery life is acceptable.. my only problem is i couldnt find a perfect fit screen protector that doesnt lift on the edges and provides full glue attachment.

Nace, 14 Nov 2017It is a flagship. So we can rewt assured that there will be software updates for Oreo and beyond.Oreo due early next year. Security updates are somewhat erratic now, they were issued every month for the first 4-5 months but have slowed down now. Last update I recieved was for August although a new update Is rolling out now which will cover us up until October.
AnonD-178467, 14 Nov 2017does changing the resolution from full hd to quad hd in s8 plus effect battery life..?I haven't conducted any tests myself but I would say judging by many posts I have seen here and on other sites as I had the same question is to set it to highest setting as it does not have much impact on the battery. Not many minutes saved.
does changing the resolution from full hd to quad hd in s8 plus effect battery life..?
