I am planning to invest some money in a new android device for development. After the launch of the new Google Pixel 2, I was expecting it to be clearly better than Samsung Galaxy S8, since after all, it is the newest flagshit and Android is a Google brand, but there are not many diferences between both. Now that the S8 also supports Daydream, I am not sure which one is more appropiate for what I want to achieve, which is mostly archiviz with the Vulkan API, both VR and non VR, and most probably AR as well.
For what I have read, the only developer related main differences between both are:
-The screen size and resolution, which is really important, specially if you are planning to use it for VR purposes.
-The Android version, which ultimatelly affects possible additional features and performance.
Although Pixel 2 has Android 8.0 and the S8, Android 7.0, it is most likely that the S8 will upgrade to 8.0 anyway. However, the screen size and resolution is way better in the S8, which is something that cannot be changed in the Google Pixel 2.
So for now I would say that it makes more sense to spend your money in the Galaxy S8, but I am not a tech guru at all.
What do you guys think? Am I missing something?
