    Well I know we're all excited to get our phones but with all the discussion on possible dislikes like display/finger print scanner, size height???
    Who is returning and why?

    I think it is a tad early for this thread -- most haven't even gotten them yet.

    If anyone returns their phone for a reason you listed, that's ridiculous. People need to either do their homework more or just not be a compulsive shopper.

    A bit premature don't you think? Considering that the phone isn't even out yet.

    There's only 2 things that could make me return the device and I don't think either will be an issue:

    1. Cell reception where I work. I have Verizon and my iPhone 6S Plus gets good reception here. If for whatever reason the S8 doesn't that would be a deal breaker.

    2. Camera - specifically recording video. Most sample videos I've seen shows some jitters or frame wiggle when panning across wide areas. My iPhone 6S Plus is perfectly smooth in this regard. I'm sure the S8 takes better still pictures than the iPhone 6S Plus but I take a lot of videos and if I can't record smooth videos with the S8 that'd be a deal breaker also.

    More S8+s were sold than S8s. I think it's because they line the bigger screen but not much bigger size. That seems to be what many have said in posts and reviews.

    If I'm totally annoyed by the mono speaker I might return mine. I've been spoiled this past year with Stereo.

    Cell reception may get you, my iPhone gets better reception then the note 7 i had and i expect the S8 will be the same.

    I think I might prefer the larger S8+.

    Since having my S8+ in my hands last night ...... with only a little sleep this morning ...... I have yet to see any reasons why I should return it

    The FPS sucks big time with my little hands but I'll be using the iris scanner which has been great.

    The screen size and ratio has been wonderful and enjoyable while watching various YouTube, Netflix and ummm " other stuff " last night and this morning

    No issues either with pink or red hues on my screen as reported from other folks ?!

    Loving , loving this phone so far !!!!

    There was another review site last fall that was comparing the S7 to the iP7. The S7 had better reception & they showed it in the video via actual dbm. The weird part is they went back in & edited that few seconds out the next day.
    Also over at the imore forums, there were a lot of complaints about reception at release. My point is not to bash one or the other, it is not the intent. Just more curious if the software tweaks & updates are more important to reception than the hardware?

    I probably should've just gone with the 8+ but I've had my 8 since yesterday and it's definitely a good phone. The screen is really really nice and it's definitely faster than my old S6 Edge Plus

    I say it's the battery. The screen size difference between the 8 and 8+ is smaller than the battery size difference, which means with all other things being equal, the 8+ will last longer.

    I'm not returning it, but will exchange it. It has the pinkish hue around the edges. In addition, the whites screens have a "cloudy" look to them.

    I'm thinking about returning it. While it's a nice phone, for my purposes, it's not a huge improvement over the S6. And, the fingerprint thing is already driving me nuts. Not only is it in a horrible position, but it's not very accurate. Major fail.

    Amazing... Had the S6E, the S7E, the iPhone 6+, and even the LG V10 and the 8S Plus is by far the fastest and most accurate FPS I've used. I don't love the placement but the iris scanner is so great that it rarely matters. Only thing I miss about my S7E is being able to unlock it while it's flat on the desk.
