These were our most popular videos of 2018

GSMArena Team, 30 December 2018

In the last days of 2018 we take a look back and see what we have accomplished in the past 12 months. A lot of thought and hard work went into our YouTube channel, so we decided to share the most popular videos of the year.

Samsung introduced the Galaxy A8 (2018) early in the year and it has been watched and liked plenty of times. No wonder it gathered over a million views with its tall Infinity Display and properly-placed fingerprint scanner.

The Galaxy S9+ flagship is a massive improvement over the Galaxy S8+ with its dual camera - one shooter with variable aperture and another with a telephoto lens. Combine this with a clean UI and sleek look and you have another phone, gathering plenty of views, likes, and comments.

The Huawei P20 series was so successful for the company that surpasses Apple as the second biggest smartphone maker in the world. No wonder that the Huawei P20 was so successful on our channel.

The Huawei P20 Pro was introduced in March as the first smartphone with three cameras. It still is one of the better cameraphones on the market, even if we are mentally preparing the P30 series at MWC 2019.

The video review of the third P20-named device has also received plenty of engagement, and why wouldn’t it? The Huawei P20 Lite has the fancy looks of its bigger brothers but with a far more affordable price tag.

HMD Global introduced the Nokia 7 Plus at MWC 2018 in Barcelona. As we established in the written review, it brings plenty of flagship experience without costing flagship money.

Xiaomi dominated the midrange market across the globe, but our YouTube audience had its eyes on the Mi 8 review.

Then there’s another Snapdragon 845-powered phone by Xiaomi called Pocophone F1. You guys sure love to discuss this phone - the video has by far the most likes and comments on our YouTube channel for 2018.

The Xperia XZ2 arrived as a break from the OmniBalance design, and you really wanted to see what the Japanese company had instead of the blocky devices it introduced for many years.

Oppo has established itself as a major player on the smartphone market and one of the more popular videos on our channel was the Oppo F9 review. It is effectively the first phone in the world with a watedrop notch, which is getting a much warmer reception than the regular wide cutout.

Sometimes we spice up our channel with long-term reviews and you seem to love it, especially what Angie had to share about her experience with the Samsung Galaxy S9 after spending over three months with the phone.

And since we are wrapping 2018, here's our 2018 Buyer’s Guide. We separated the phones in four price categories, to make it more manageable. There's something for everyone, so go and check out the video.
