    I personally like that Samsung has moved to on screen buttons. To add to it, the ability to change the order.

    I was hell bent in not getting the s8 because they went for on screen buttons and moved the FPS around the back. After a few hours with the s8 Plus and I wondered why I was so against them to begin with and it was an easy transition. I kept the nav buttons in the order Samsung always have and kept the virtual home button always on. The FPS is still a pain though even with a case on to guide your finger to it

    On screen and rear have been the proper way to go for years welcome to the 20th century.

    Yep. I really like that one physical failure point is gone and, as I can now unlock the phone to the home screen using either index finger on the FPS, I rarely use the power button either.

    I love the FPS gesture drop down notifications, that combined with the nougat reply from notifications box makes the S8 series a great combo.

    I have the S8+. While there is a lot to like about this phone it undoubtedly feels like an incomplete product. Clear omissions like the awkwardly placed fingerprint sensor and lack of any semblance of photographic prowess like the one found on the iPhone 7 Plus with its dual camera make this release feel a bit rushed. I think the Note 8 will be what the S8+ should have been. Overall it is a solid device and it is my daily driver now, despite the fact that I have both the iPhone 7 Plus and the S8+. The display alone makes it very difficult to go back to using an iPhone at this stage.

    I just got my Verizon S8+ yesterday. I upgraded from a S7 edge. Yes, I do think it is a worthy upgrade from the edge.

    I was not going to get one, I was just going to wait for the Note 8. I am still going to get the Note 8, but I am very glad I got the S8+ in the interim.

    A few things I like are the removal of the physical home button and the addition of the on screen keys. I like the iris scanner. Even though I have only had the phone for a day the battery life is obviously quite good.

    I am not sure yet about the display ratio, it is extremely long and hard to reach towards the top of the display. I do however like the amount of information I can see on the screen at one time. I do not like the placement of the fingerprint sensor, but it is easy to find with a case and it is very fast.

    That's it for now, just my first impressions. I have to hold and manipulate the phone a little bit different than the S7 edge, but that is something I will bet used to. Overall, I really like the S8+ a lot. It is smooth, fast and an enjoyable smartphone experienceツ
