I have a positive tab on my accounts and that makes upgrading to a new phone quite tempting. I cannot decide between a pixel 2 and a Samsung 8. Anybody can share their experience or even share a good review you have seen somewhere. I am mainly after a robust phone with little maintenance required. I want fast processing and no freezing and crashing of apps and the capability to run multiple apps seamlessly. I do not upgrade often so it’s important that the phone does not become obsolete for at least 3 years. II have had my current phone for 4+ years and it’s now really slowing down and I have to give it second after I click on something so it can think and process.

I've used both. The pixel 2 is good but I prefer the s8. The bezels are much smaller with a larger screen. If you want vanilla android and rapid updates go for pixel. I consider the Samsung to have better hardware. Neither should seriously slow down.

I would go for the S8 as well. I prefer it as a phone, it has a very good camera.
