Weekly poll results: Galaxy S8 takes the compact flagship crown

The Samsung Galaxy S8 snatched the 2017 compact flagship crown, securing just over a third of all votes over our week-long poll. A strong crowd-favorite, the Samsung phone ran pretty much unopposed, with the closest rival being 11 percentage points behind.

That runner-up didn’t have it quite as easy, though. It was a rather close race between the Google Pixel 2 and the Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact, but the Google phone prevailed in the end with 23% of all votes, to the Compact’s 18%.

The rest of the contenders only managed single-digit shares with the LG G6 getting the most fan love among those that didn’t make it to the podium – a total of 8%. The iPhone 8 ended up 1% short of its model name, while the Xiaomi Mi 6 got precisely 6% of the votes. Well, the Huawei P10 missed its target by a lot.

Stay tuned for round two of this poll, where it’s the big bros’ turn to battle it out – the Notes, Pluses, and XLs.
