If you're shopping for a new smartphone, there's a good chance three options immediately come to mind: the iPhone X, the Galaxy S8, or the Google Pixel 2. Your buying decision might come down to whether you're more comfortable using iOS or Android. But for those who are struggling to decide which phone is best, or simply just want to get a better sense of how each phone differs from one another, here's a closer look at the iPhone X, Google Pixel 2 XL and Samsung Galaxy S8. While more powerful processors, sharper cameras, and better screens have become routine annual updates, 2017 was the year that smartphone makers began to rethink design, too. All three companies released new phones with screens that cover nearly the entire front of the device, resulting in a look that's more slick while also offering more screen space. And, most importantly, the new edge-to-edge design on the iPhone X, Galaxy S8, and Google Pixel XL means you're getting a bigger screen in a phone that's not noticeably larger, which makes them easier to hold than big-screened devices of years past.
