    I love the black, but it's going to be a fingerprint magnet. A case will be necessary.
    Ya, an all glass phone, better to have casing whether it's fingerprint magnet or not

    Bet the battery was smaller in the edge cause of the curved screen.
    The note 7 had the stylUS, so space for a larger battery was lost there.
    I don't think so. Because if you compare The S6 and S6 edge, the battery was bigger in the edge version even though they were about the same size. The curved screen allowed them to fit an extra 50mah. I agree about the Note 7, the pen is what did that to it.

    Honestly, I preferred the look of the Note 7. This is cool and all, I'm impressed that they can do bezeless displays, but I'm unsure about the look of it and concerned about how practical it will be when it comes to handling my phone.

    Note 7 was beautiful. Hopefully the Note 8 will be just as nice.

    New leaked pics... the one thing I like about the leak pic... lock screen wallpaper is S-Pen looking wallpaper... wishful thinking

    New leak could be our first look at Samsung’s final Galaxy S8 hardware – BGR

    Interesting case presented here (except for the butt-ugly color). But one thing that is intriguing with this case design is the slight separation between the camera and the finger-print sensor. When I get this device, a similar case will be something I'd be looking for to hopefully avoid tons of fingerprints on my camera by being better able to feel where the fingerprint sensor is.

    I'm curious to know what the usability of the fingerprint reader is like. Anyone tried it? Is the positioning good? Seems like a bit of a stretch to me.

    It does look attractive, but I'm just not a fan of curved displays.

    I like the looks of the S8, but I much prefer the look of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2. I think the Mi Mix 2 is far and away the best looking phone.

    I cannot stand curved glass. At least with the S7 they gave us an option for a flat glass. I probably will wait and go with later flagship phones that have the SD 835 in the year from ZTE and OnePlus assuming they make them with flat screens.

    The only thing I don't like about it is the absolutely horrible placement of the fingerprint scanner. This phone does so much right, but that one failure could kill it.

    I really don't like how the display has rounded corners. That said, the only real question for me is will I be getting the S8 or the S8+ on the release day? The battery on my S6 edge is not lasting like it used to.

    Sounds like the location was a last minute afterthought once they abandoned the underscreen button. Terrible location but I guess it will be a one year only feature if they push foward with the underscreen button on S9... possibly in time for Note 8???

    consider this... the S8 was to have underscreen button AND dual cameras... and design and internal hardware layout pretty much near production stage. They realize they can't get the bugs out of the underscreen button and have to wait until S9 and now they have to design a button in the back but everything has been designed and would have to redesign the internal layout! Viola... remove the dual cameras, put one camera back in and use that freed up space for the power button.

    A lousy place to put a button... but problem solved. :/

    I actually like it, especially the curved corners. I even installed an app on my S7 edge to achieve that. Can't wait to see it.

    If this is indeed how it happened then who knows what other mishaps it can cause? And to think the device would go from having that underscreen technology and dual camera to none of them, kind of dissapointing actually

    Loving the design but I still want the bezels a bit like the note 7. I think i'm gonna wait for the new note to be released before I decide which one to buy.

    Well I just have to make clear, if it wasn't understood in my post that I was just hypothesizing/guessing/having fun with an idea as to why the stupid location on the FPS... no facts to base it on.

    Did read an article that there most likely a dual camera S8 considered and maybe a prototype but didn't happen. Rumors say that most likely the Note 8 will have a dual camera. So from there I came up with the idea.... cause if they did run out of time on the underscreen button, then it's logical they now had to figure out where to put a button.

    If the Note8 does come with dual camera... will be interesting to see where they put a FPS

    The reason why the fingerprint button is located in that location is because it is no longer the primary method to log in. I guarantee you Samsung designed the phone with the intention that people would use the iris scanner as the primary way to unlock your phone. I expect they made inprovements to that feature and believe that is how most people should unlock their phone.
