    That is pretty cool... but now that I've disabled the Bixby button with the latest Bixby update, it would be cooler to be able to use that button for something like flashlight by double-clicking when phone is locked. Just think it would be easier to find/press in the dark than to find the sensor.

    Haven't looked into it so what's the latest on this... Samsung blocking 3rd party apps to reprogram the Button. If not, what's the best app to use?

    There are just SO many things I've 'discovered' so far. In the way too cool app category I found (from a YouTube reviewer) an app called Fingerprint Gestures that allows me to use the fingerprint sensor to turn on the flashlight with a double tap! Love this!! Can't tell you how many times I needed to use the flashlight on my last phone (N3) and had to fumble around in the dark to turn the phone on, open the app or widget and turn on the light. Now, double tap the fingerprint sensor and voila - flashlight on! Double tap again and it goes off.

    So I discovered... in the stock Messages app, when in a message, you can pinch to zoom in the text area and increase or decrease the font size of text in the text bubbles and doesn't effect text size outside the app. Convenient when you need to magnify your text when you get one in the middle of the night and visions blurry.

    I'm sure the scanner still works fine when you're drunk, it's getting your eyes to cooperate that would be the issue.

    I guess everyone already knows this - but just noticed in the camera App there's three free downloads; Animated GIF, Rear Cam Selfie and Sports. The GIF feature is a really simple way to make an animated GIF .... hours of time wasting amusement awaits!

    All they change is the exp. date and CVV code. Just enough to screw up all of your online accts. Google will update all of them for you if you so desire.

    Also, I have discovered that if you detach the S Pen and shove it all the way into someone's eye, they will scream really loud.

    Swipe on the camera screen and Downloads is the last option.

    I have to try that S Pen to the eye feature. About time Samsung came up with something useful I can use on the 5 train during my morning commute.

    where is the haptic button when the screen is off? are you referring to the button on the bottom with AOD (always on display)?

    if not, can you share a screen shot
