    you can tell easily that no one has received it yet because no one is posting their reviews here. check back over the next week. you won't need to start a thread to see them.

    I am new to Android Central and did not post to see my name as a thread starter. Maybe I don't know the rules and apologize for that. I won't post again.

    There is nothing you need to apologize for. Starting the review thread was a great idea!

    Hi areyes.
    Are you from the BB Q10 forums also? You're name seems familiar.

    To the OP: hope you too will be sharing your experiences with the device.

    My daughter played with one for about 1 hour at Best Buy on Sat... she pre-ordered hers then. I did mine on launch day. She LOVED doing a coloring page in PenUp. We both love the camera features - live photo. I can't wait to use the sPen again! I love being able to write the note on the screen without having to open an app... it works great!

    Price, size, and the thought of it being a hardly superior version of an S8+ seem to be the downfalls most reviews have. Upon first seeing the device it definitely looked massive. But after looking at it side by side to my iPhone 7+, it's marginally larger by maybe a few mm at most. Once mine shows up I'll get used to it.

    I like the AC editor's review. I feel like he hit the target audience as far as who the device is marketed towards and what makes it a stellar device. Exactly my thoughts that it's not the premium device for a total Android purist, but still a great device.

    Sounds like no one is that excited on the secondary camera and no one really liking the live focus quality. I think the LG may get the win in the camera department category this year with its wide angle lens if V30 camera performs.

    Not really sure why my post got moved to "Customer Reviews" when links are more media reviews... but that's cool.

    Because "Customer Reviews" is a forum sticky and, when phones arrive and reviews come in they can be compared to the media stuff.

    This thing is beastly! Mine just arrived this morning. I used a display unit at the Samsung Experience here in NYC but now that mine has arrived and I've had a few hours to use it and I'm definitely happy that I brought it. Coming from a Note 5 and having all the previous Notes (except for the 1st Gen) it feels familiar but new at the same time which is a good thing. S Notes has changed to Samsung Notes so Action Memo isn't there anymore along with a lot of the other S Note functions so you'll have to find the APK and install it.

    There seems to be a big issue with the placement of the Finger Print Scanner but I don't see it as an issue at all. I'm an average size guy with average size hands (8.5 inches) and I can reach it with no problems. I will post more as I get more time with the device. Especially on the subject of "Infamous Battery Life" I have a Gear S3 Frontier and use a Bluetooth headset at work and at the gym it'll be put to the test.
