Wired9/1090/100There is no better Android phone. The camera is amazing, and it has as much to do with the software as the hardware. Runs pure Android Oreo, and you get security updates before everyone else. Always-on notifications, including a tiny song-identifying widget, are excellent. AI-powered features like Google Lens are fun, and will only get better over time.The smaller of the two phones has fat bezels, which belie its status as a premium device. Image stabilization during video capture is not foolproof. Welcome to Dongleland.
