While each company claims their phone to be the best, there are some differences that you may not be aware of.

If you are looking to buy one of the best new smartphones on the market, ask these questions about the Samsung Galaxy S8, the Galaxy Note 8, the Pixel 2 from Google and the LG V30.8 Active Questions | Add a Question
If you are looking for a phone with the very best camera, the LG V30 beats them all y a large margin. It features dual high-resolution cameras that take ultra high-resolution images. The 16 MP rear camera features a f/1.6 aperture lens and allows you to take high quality images, even in low light, up to 4656 x 3492 pixels. The other camera is a 13 MP wide-angle lens that allows you to take group shot selfies with a resolution of up to 4160 x 3120 pixels.
If you are looking for a phone with superior resolution, most of the top new models should please you. The Galaxy S8 and Note 8, as well as the LG V30, all offer a Quad HD display for the best possible resolution. While the Pixel 2 features a regular HD display, you can upgrade to the Pixel 2 XL which features a higher resolution.
The phone with the largest display would have to be the Samsung Galaxy Note, whose display measures 6.3 inches diagonally. However, the S8+ comes close at 6.2-inches. Of course, the other models are not far behind hovering around 6 inches. Nevertheless, if you are looking for the largest display, the Galaxy Note 8 is your best bet.
When it comes to uniqueness, the Galaxy Note 8 takes the cake. It features a longer design than the other phones, allowing you to take the perfect panoramic shots with your camera, or watch widescreen movies in full HD. One of it most unique features in the S Pen which allows you to easily, write, draw and browse through your phone. You can even quickly write notes while your phone is locked with the S Pen.
For the most internal memory, you’ll want the Galaxy Note 8 which offers 6 GB of RAM allowing for the greatest amount of data storage. The other phones by comparison offer 4 GB of RAM. However, this may not make a huge difference to most people.
The Samsung Galaxy and the Galaxy Note 8 feature a Octa Core 2.35Ghz processor that provide those models with stunning performance. But the LG V30 and the Pixel 2 both feature a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 835 processor that works even better.
This question is a little tricky. If you are looking for the most storage already built in for apps and files such as videos, pictures and more, then the Pixel 2 or the V30+ offer up to 128 GB of storage included with the phone. However, with Galaxy models, you can add additional storage via SD cards. But if you only care about storing more videos and photos, the Pixel 2 allow for unlimited storage in a cloud.
The battery life for all the phones can last you throughout the day on standby, but just how long they last depends on what apps you are running, how often you use your phone and what you use it for. While your battery might drain fairly quickly with any of the top new phones, the good news is that they all charge incredibly fast, giving you several hours of battery life in just minutes.
