My S4 has lasted 5 years, not bad but its pretty beat up & not far from being in permacharge. I don't know if I want to go Samsung on my next phone, I was never impressed with my S4's wifi stability compared to a couple of other brands I've used - I'm sure the S9 is better but its crazy priced.

 

Currently I'm looking at either the HTC U11 or LG V30, both look great and would do everything I need. While the Nokia 8 looks amazing and I really like the aluminium build, the mono speaker is a big let down at that price. Anybody have experience with either or both of my picks? Would be keen to hear any feedback or frustrations you've had.

 

EDIT: Actually the V30 doesn't have dual speakers like the U11, not sure where I got that from.. yeah the U11 is the definite favorite at this point.

Personally, I'd pick the V30 over the U11. Reasons:

- Headphone jack
- 6.0" display in the same body as the HTC (which has a 5.5" display)
- POLED display (vs HTC's SLCD)
- Bigger battery (3300mAh vs 3000)
- Better camera
- Better audio/DAC

Those certainly are good reasons to chose the V30. Here are some point in favour of the U11 based on this comparison.
- Better performance benchmarks (Basemark)
- Fingerprint front mounted instead of rear mounted
- 16MP secondary camera
- More 4G LTE bands supported (important if you travel, I guess)

 

Very important in this equation should also be the UI for the user experience, not only the hardware. If the UI is unresponsive and cumbersome, better hardware is not necessarily the better option.
