Moto Z4 (2019) vs Samsung Galaxy Note8 (2017)

Analysis:

While the Moto Z4 (2019) wasn't able to make it to the very top of any roundups from sources that perform quality hands-on testing, it still got featured in a large number of them. PhoneArena, Techradar, CNET, The Verge, PCmag, Android Authority, and Android Central have all deemed it worthy of a place on their respective shortlists.

Returning to the Samsung Galaxy Note8 (2017), Tom's Guide, a source that's known for its high-quality in-depth testing, has great things to say about it. In fact, it was named its "Ranked 3 out of 11" in its "The 11 Best Verizon Phones, Ranked Top to Bottom" roundup, which is quite a feat.

We conducted an analysis of all of the review data that we could find on these two products. First, we focused on sources that tested and rated both of them, like Android Authority, Techradar, PCmag, PhoneArena, CNET, The Verge, Digitaltrends, and Android Central, and learned that they all showed a preference for the Samsung Galaxy Note8 (2017).

Then we took a look at the highest review scores that these two Smartphones received. We found that the Moto Z4 (2019) managed to earn a rating of 8 from PhoneArena, whereas the Samsung Galaxy Note8 (2017) got its highest, 10, score from reviewers at PCWorld.

Lastly, in order to better compare them to the rest of their competition, we averaged out their review scores. The Samsung Galaxy Note8 (2017) managed to get 8.4 out of 10 - considerably better than the 7.5 review average of Smartphones in general - whereas the Moto Z4 (2019) earned 6.9 points.

It should be said that doing a direct Moto Z4 (2019) vs. Samsung Galaxy Note8 (2017) comparison might not be entirely fair due to the difference in their prices - some sources don't put much weight on value for money and thus tend to give better review scores to more expensive products.
