This phone is fast. Don’t believe other comments you might see because I officially rate and run speed tests on my phones. The gold phone, we purchased, is rated the fastest phone smart phone in the world at this time. It’s Antutu rating is 219575 and the second silver phone is rated at 216318. This phone just blows away my iPhone 7 Plus with speed and downloading apps and animation quality. My old iPhone 7 Plus was rated at 178438. This speed is due to the new A11 Bionic chip with 64 bit architecture.
This phone has the new bluetooth 5 which succeeds bluetooth 4.2. Bluetooth 5 is backward compatible to the previous versions. The new bluetooth has twice the speed of the 4.2 version and about 4 times the range. That is amazing since it uses less power and its message capacity is 255 bytes versus 31 bytes which makes the data payload of the 4.2 version rated at 20 bytes max. This is a major distance and data transmission increase in performance. I notice it when I lay down my phone and walk away and my Apple Watch 3 is still connected when before I would lose connection with my older iPhone.
The phone is designed to be IP67 for splash, water and dust resistant. The camera is still 12 MP but it has excellent performance with optical zoom and digital zoom up to 10 times. It also still has the portrait camera mode with the blurred background Bokeh effect by using both of the rear cameras. It even uses the new portrait lighting mode to make your photos look more professional.
In the video recording mode I really like the 4K video recording with 30 or 60 fps. Of course you still have the front facing camera with 7MP quality for face time or selfie photography. The slow motion mode is nice when shooting sports events or shooting wildlife videos.
The phone is slightly larger but is still fits into most of your iPhone 7 Plus cases. The new iPhone 8 Plus weighs just a bit more at 7.12 ounces versus 6.63 ounces. The battery life is the same in the specs but for me it seems to be a bit longer at 22.4 hours. The rating is 21 hours.
The new phone is only available in 64 GIG or 256 GIG storage capacity.
Overall this is a great phone. I am happy with our new phones and it is a good upgrade in power and performance.
While my family has had many Android and iOS devices, the iOS devices cost more but generally get (much) more use, plus they hold their value better. My favorite Android device (which has gotten a lot of use) has been my phone (an LG G2, then G4, then G5).
UPDATE: I ended up returning the iPhone 8 Plus and getting a Pixel 2. There was just too much missing from iOS and the iPhone that Android had plus I was disappointed with the camera. I think the iPhone 8 is a decent phone but it's not for me (even though I use iPads). Read below for more.
TIP: Don't buy mobile phones from Best Buy as they charge restocking fees.
* The G5 was much cheaper than the iPhone.
* The G5 has a user replaceable battery and microSD slot.
* The G5 is not waterproof but the iPhone is.
* The G5 has dual cameras and one is a wide angle lens... I will miss the wide angle lens.
* The G5 has fast charging and includes the needed cable and power adapter to do so. The iPhone 8 supposedly also has fast charging, but it will cost you $$$ to buy the needed cable and power adapter.
* The G5 has a small color charge/notification LED which is nice. The iPhone can use the flash for alerts (General->Accessibility->LED Flash for Alerts).
* The G5 photo aspect ratio is 16:9 and the iPhone's is 4:3. I *MUCH* prefer 16:9. Disappointed.
* My G5 developed a focusing problem with the main camera where photos would often be blurry, which is what prompted me to start researching new phones.
* The iPhone 8 Plus also has dual cameras, but no wide-angle camera... however, you get a 2X optical zoom camera and portrait mode photos which I am looking forward to.
* The iPhone 8 has (slow) wireless charging but the G5 does not.
* The iPhone 8 has 3D Touch but the G5 does not.
* The iPhone feels like high end hardware, has a great IPS screen, and has great build quality but it's a little on the heavy side. The G5 is good too but doesn't seem quite up to the iPhone.
* The glass back worries me but Consumer Reports says it is a rugged phone and survived their "tough 100 drops in the tumbler with just some minor scratches".
* Speech recognition is not as advanced but it's not terrible either.
* Speech recognition does not give you options to choose from a list of phrases of what you might have said.
* I found it virtually impossible to place the cursor in the middle of a word when editing text. Very annoying.
* Sometimes when I tap something it doesn't respond and I have to tap it again. This seems to happen mostly on small buttons. I didn't have this issue on the G5.
* No always on display feature to show time and notifications. Many Android phones have had this for awhile, including the G5. Hopefully Apple will add this in an update as it's a very useful and convenient feature.
* Can't configure bottom row of touch buttons. On Android, I had a button to quickly show and hide notifications. I found it better and faster than having to swipe down.
* It seems Apple does not allow custom keyboards to access voice dictation... which means you have to switch keyboards to the standard one in order to access voice dictation. I use voice dictation a lot on my Android.
* Home screen is not as configurable. Cannot control icon layout as much.
* Some of my favorite apps (frequently used) are not available on iOS, like NOAA Weather and ColorNote.
* You can turn on 'Reduce Motion' to limit animations that slow things down, but there are still some fades and other effects that you can't turn off. Android lets you turn off all (or almost all) "eye candy" animations for a faster phone.
* Sharing photos to Google Drive made me always select the same folder (it didn't remember the selected folder).
* Frequent iOS updates. This is a big deal compared to most Android phones.
* Easier to communicate with other people who also have iPhones (and there are a lot of them).
* Can say "Hey Siri" to access Siri even when phone is laying down idle and without touching it.
* Better security (so I've read).
* Good integration across iPhones and iPads.
* I like the way that news is integrated.
So I returned the iPhone and bought a Pixel 2 because I like Android better when it comes to phones (although for tablets I use iPads).
I really like the Pixel 2 but the LG G5 was great too although it did have some significant disadvantages (like updates).
Pixel 2 notes:
* It was very easy to connect my LG G5 to the Pixel 2 using the included cable to transfer data from my old phone to the new phone. There's also an included adapter in case you need it. Unfortunately I was disappointed that my alarms did not transfer and I had to re-enter them manually. I also had to re-arrange the icons the way I wanted.
* The Pixel 2 screen and phone itself are a little smaller than my G5. I'd like a little larger screen like the G5 has but then the phone would be larger and weigh more so it's a trade-off.
* No bloatware or crapware (especially the type you can't uninstall)!!! YEAH! And guaranteed 3 years of updates! These are BIG advantages of having Google phones.
* So far the camera is impressing me. It's definitely better than the iPhone 8 Plus camera. I will still miss the wide angle camera on the G5 and the native 16:9 aspect ratio but portrait mode and the overall photo quality makes it much easier to forget. UPDATE: I noticed a quirk in portrait mode processing that didn't apply the blur properly around someone's hair... hopefully that will be improved/fixed.
* Can turn off animations - I like to do this to make the phone feel even faster: https://lifehacker.com/disable-animations-on-android-to-improve-performance-1583554900
* The phone seems very fast, even when it was installing a bunch of apps in the background. It's the fastest and smoothest phone I've ever used.
* The sound form the front-firing stereo speakers is best I've heard from a mobile phone.
* I wasn't too happy there was no headphone jack, but I was pleasantly surprised that the headphone adapter seemed to be less intrusive than I anticipated and I am pretty certain that the sound quality through the adapter (which has a DAC in it) sounds better than my LG G5. I'll probably pick up an extra adapter or 2 (they are only $9 each) but are out of stock right now in the Google Store. Good audio video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Pi_SykMCsI
* The always on display looks great with OLED, and this is a really nice feature that you don't get on iPhone.
* I like that you can change icon shapes (square, circle, "squircle", etc.).
* I found out my mobile data wasn't working. After a few hours researching and messing with stuff, I ended up having to use a new Tracfone SIM and getting my service transferred to the new SIM.
* The Pixel 2 has a 'Now Playing' feature that listens to any music that's playing nearby and tells you the name and artist (even on the always-on display), but I'm not sure how practical it is. By the way, it works without mobile data and WiFi and without sending audio to Google. UPDATE: I went to Target and my phone was identifying the background music Target was playing. Pretty cool, especially if you've ever wondered what a song is that was playing.
* Fast charging is great (especially when you need it), and the Pixel 2 includes a beefy fast charger.
* I really like that Google increased the warranty to 2 years. With the extra 24 months I get with my credit card, that gives me a 4 year warranty. Too bad it doesn't cover accidental damage though.
* The Google Assistant is tops when it comes to brains (smarts), and can be activated with a squeeze or by saying 'hey Google' or 'OK Google'.
Pixel 2 Android disappointments (could be rectified with Android updates):
* No battery life indicator on the 'always on' display (my G5 had this and it was useful).
* My LG lets you customize the navigation bar but the Pixel 2 doesn't without a little "hacking" it seems. I really liked that I could add an extra button to pull down the notifications. Maybe they will add this in Oreo 8.1.
* There is a double-tap feature to check your phone but unfortunately you can't double tap it to turn the screen back off (my G5 had this too)... this one is kind of nitpicky though.
