    Yeah, the front FPS is the main reason I haven't fully replaced my 6P with the OP3T I've had for 2 months.
    I guess i don't have that problem. I put the phone in my pocket head first and facing inside to my leg. When i pull the phone out, my thumb is on the front fps to unlock it

    After owning an Honor 8 definitely the back.

    Have you owned any phones with a front fps?

    Ah that's cool then. Just wanted to make sure that you tried one with a front fps so you knew how to compare the two.

    I like both for different reasons. Have used lots of phones with them in each place. The only I have really not liked so far is the galaxy s8. Disabled it after a bit and went with an old school pin and smart lock. Other than that I'm happy with front or back as long as it is fast and reliable

    Well the s8 was presumably a last minute effort because they couldn't get the on screen fps to work. Hopefully it should be corrected in a future model

    I don't really have a preference as long as they work. on my s8+ I only use the iris scanner. it works so well and it's so nice to just pick up my phone and look at it. I even wear glasses and don't have issues with it working.

    Good point about the iris scanner. The iris scanner has to be used with the phone directly facing the eye right?

    Yup, it doesn't need to be jammed in your face. It works at normal viewing distance.

    Fingerprint on the back is a must for me. Sticking with my Honor 8 till the 8 Pro is lil cheaper

    As a P10 Plus owner, I don't mind the front scanner even if the wife's Honor 8's back scanner DO feel better.

    What I'm missing from Honor 8 is all the shortcuts like browsing photos and pulling down the notification shade. Add in some of those features and they could probably even put it on the side, Sony style .

    Yes, they are on the Honor 8 and if they would also be on the other phones, placement of the scanner wouldn't matter as much

    Nope, we only have the fancy "3 in 1" button for navigation.

    Oh wow. That sucks... Hopefully they will add it... That's a nice feature and the fps swipe to open and close notification panel also works on my note 8

    Used to strongly prefer back FPS but after using for a while I don't mind it on the front with gestures enabled.

    I just saw the P10/Plus for the first time today. and played around with it and saw the FPS on the front. it's nothing too bad. you will get used to it but I still love the back fps

    I have a smartwatches always paired to my phone, so having a fps on the back while the phone is lying on a table isn't that big of a deal to me. I prefer to have it on the back actually. But I'm coming from being a long time LG user.

    The fps on the back is more aesthetic than the front

    Agreed! Plus I love that I don't have to press a button/fps for it to read and wake the device!

    I do hate how they would make the back fingerprint scanner as the home button to wake up/put to sleep the device too. I like the button on the side for that

    I did get used to it as time went on on my V10. It just wasn't as fast an action as I would like. I still miss trouble tap to wake and sleep.
