You said gimmicky features yet you named "reverse wireless charging" which is a silly gimmick. Watch Juan Bagnell's video on it. But you won't because you're a fanboy.

or 2. a hardcore Samsung fanboy. No offense.

P30 Pro is more 'proper flagship' on overall aspect.

Everyone knows the future is under-display cameras and until we get there waterdrop notches and even punch-hole cameras will have to do.

Compared to Sony it has a better screen, better cameras, fast wireless charging, reverse wireless charging, bigger battery, higher screen-to-body ratio, Samsung DeX support, LTE-A Cat 20, 3.5mm headphone jack, better stereo speakers with support for 32-bit/384kHz audio, FM radio, base model offers 128GB/8GB of storage and RAM and best of all it costs less than Sony's flagship that doesn't even have any of the aforementioned features, it just has a battery draining and gimmicky 4K OLED display.

I can't believe 467 people voted for the Xperia 1 lol just goes to show how many Sony fanboys are lurking on this site. The hardware specs are fine, even its weird elongated shape is fine, but it has a relatively poor endurance rating because of its low 3330mAh battery, which doesn't make sense because of its large 4K display. That alone should stop a sensible consumer from forking over close to $1100 instead of buying something cheaper or better.

3.5mm and big battery are first things I spend money. I don't buy small battery with software optimisations. 100h+ is mandatory for any phone or it's not worth 100$

LG Superfan, 16 Jun 2019Honestly LG G8 is nowhere near Xperia 1, S10+ and P30 Pro it onl... moreWrong.
The LG G8 is so underrated, it's kinda sad. The build quality compared to the three you listed is actually higher. In terms of camera, the P30 Pro sits slightly ahead of the S10, the G8 is slightly behind that, and the Xperia 1 is slightly behind the G8. In terms of display, the S10 sits ahead, with the Xperia 1 behind it, then the P30, followed by the G8. Now as for battery life, the S10+ sits cleanly ahead, followed by the P30, then the G8, then the S10, and then the Xperia 1.

So you see, the LG G8 is very competitive to the likes of the S10, Xperia 1, and the P30 Pro. It's much closer than you think. Sure, the LG G8 has a lower price... but that's a good thing!

I think its best to list each phone, and it's major con:
S10+ : very fragile
G8: no bootloader unlock/root/custom rom
Xperia 1: very very overpriced
P30 Pro: poor audio for its size

...that's why I said earlier, there's no clear winner this time around !

I prefer the other solution: No nonsense (and not tainted with motorized selfies). Super happy with the disturbance-free Note9, the S9+ Ultimate Edition, an amazing phone perfectly relevant that will remain relevant for a while (especially with the rumors around that disaster called Note10).

Anonymous, 16 Jun 2019But you choose s10+ with hole in the screenPill-shape or circle hole is fine, but waterdrop notch is not acceptable to me, it looks like a nipple, especially the U-shaped one.

They will have that next year. At least, they'll be using real 5G instead of beta test 5G we are currently having with Android now.
