    I've been thinking about this for a while but I think the Pixel 2 will look mainly the same with it's giant bezels and that is something I've never wanted in a phone. S8 or G6 will be my new device it's looking like.

    It is always better to buy things when they are required. What everyone will do when Pixel 2 will be released? Wait for S9?
    I think better to buy S8 now and if you have enough money change S8 to Pixel 2.

    Both will be welcome but I do love the lack of bloat ware and quick updates that the carrier doesn't limit.

    I'm using a Nexus 6P now, waiting to see what the pixel 2 looks like. I love Samsung's hardware, if they still did Google play editions, I'd seriously consider a Samsung one.

    I'm waiting for the Pixel XL 2. Hopefully the bezels will shrink. I'm a former Samsung S1 then Note I owner that left for the OnePlus One. I've been holding out ever since. My OnePlus with CM now Lineage does everything I need it to and is very fast. The only issue is the poor camera(low light). I left the Samsung Note for poor software support and the then slow Touchwiz interface. I don't think I could ever go back for those reasons.

    According to the main question, at this point, I would rather go with the phone I visually like and the one I've been using.

    After all, using samsung since S2 means ur comfortable with it, switching to pixel would be new for me, in some cases, too new, and 'best phone' does not mean S8 is not capable of matching the pixel.

    Although, switching to pixel later after selling the S8 can feasible.

    I was talking about the Pixel2. Just imagine what that bad boy will go for.☺️
    Yeah, it's probably going to be really expensive but Google definitely back up that price tag with killer specs and very fast performance. Their camera is the highest rated on Dx0mark

    But that's only coming out in December and the Galaxy S8 is out in the next few weeks so it might be hard waiting 9 months for a device.

    I think if you got the S8 you wouldn't have to upgrade for at least 3 years. It's got some killer 4.5G Internet connection speeds and Bluetooth 5.0. All brand new tech

    Personally, I think this is a pretty big year for new phones and am interested in waiting out Google, Samsung (specifically for the Note 8), and yes, even Apple to see what they do with the iPhone (although I imagine I'll be staying with Android this time around unless I'm completely blown away). The one at the top of my list at the moment is the Note 8, but if I were you I'd probably stick it out and see what both phones are like when they're officially revealed. I have an S7E as well and it is still a great phone.

    I've wondered this exact thing - my early upgrade comes up around August, so I'm actually looking forward to having several months of other people using the S8 so there are experienced opinions by the time Pixel 2 is out 👌. After having an S7, I wouldn't mind having an Android that gets timely software updates like iPhone. This all assumes Pixel 2 is on multiple networks too.

    Fellow readers,

    I'm returning to Android soon as my daily driver. I've previous been a Nexus guy after rolling with HTC and Samsung. HTC doesn't impress me much these days and Samsung's TW didn't age well imo when I had a S3 & S4. My last Android device was a Nexus 6 before giving the iPhone a shot for about a year. An enlightening experience, but now I'm having trouble deciding if I should move on to the S8 or Google's next Pixel. I'm a fan of how Google does Android but I know Samsung devices are always enjoyable to use as well. Having no real background with TW in the past 3 releases and understanding the Pixel is fairly close to what Nexus use to be. I could use some recommendations from anyone who has actually had the chance to use either device.

    Touchwiz is much better now, but the next Pixel seems like it will obviously be the better device. Kinda depends on when you're making the switch... if it's in a month, S8, otherwise if it's in 6 months, next Pixel, right?

    I use the last great Google phone, the Nexus 6P. I'll never own a Pixel.

    I'm just wondering if the pixel 2 will be able to compete with the features/design. I love having vanilla up-to-date updates of Android OS and the Pixel's Camera was amazing, only time will tell.

    From my perspective, if you want tons of annoying bloatware you can't disable (Samsung's apps) and super slow updates, then definitely the S8.

    For me it would have to be the S8. After the Note 7 thing last year I turned towards the Pixel but it was always out of stock...not for days or weeks, but for months. That turned me away from it. So the S8 or S8+ will probably be my new phone.

    I'll see what others reviews will be, then either get the S8, if all good, or go for the Note 8.

    What Google does with the supply and demand of the Pixel 2 through the holidays and into Q2 of 2018 will influence my decision to get an S8 or not. There's nothing worse than wanting to purchase some tech and having to wait upwards of a month for it to become available.

    I'd wait until October to decide if a Note 8 or Pixel 2 suits me best.

    The Pixel and Galaxy S releases are flip flopped so much that they're 1+ (as in one upping) each other with each release.

    I am having the same debate. I currently have a Nexus 6P. I had the S2, S3 & S4. At some point I had a note 4 but I can remember which phones it fit between Nexus 4, 5, 6P.

    I HATED the S3 & S4. But the S2 will always be a classic (Did I have the first S I think I might have come to think of it). Either way here is what I feel about the various options.

    Samsung: Great hardware no questions about it. But I hate their customizations, the needing a samsung account, etc.
    Google: Good hardware, but not as good as Samsung (exception being the S3 & S4 which were awful). But I love the updated, I love the clean build etc.

    To me it seems part of the question might come down to Bixby as well. Let's be honest Google's OK Google isn't even competing with S Voice. S Voice just isn't in the same league, heck I'm not convinced that OK Google isn't a major league baseball team while S Voice is still playing softball. I don't want to be stuck with the samsung Bixby if it just can't compete and I admit I'm more than a little annoyed that Samsung must try to copy Google on everything they do.

    The Note 7 was awesome! It had the S7 edge features + the S Pen. That was the perfect phone for me, until it exploded.

    The Note line is the only line of phones I'm truly satisfied with.
    Did you actually use the S pen? In what situations?

    Cheers

    I love my Pixel XL and there's not a phone out right now that i would rather have. However what I've seen from the S8 leaks I'm pretty impressed. I figured the Pixel might break streak of getting a new phone yearly, but with the Pixel 2 getting more time to be even better and the S8, that streak will continue.

    I feel like I'd wait on the pixel 2 just because you don't want to be like some pixel owners that have reception and Bluetooth issues.
