    I haven't tried that in a long while. I will have to use it again.

    Just follow the instructions of setup of the iris scanner to a tee and it will work perfect 99% of the time

    What is the battery consumption of iris scanner and NFC? Is it greatly increased?

    Don't know about NFC as I don't use it for anything but I doubt iris scanner have much impact on battery life as mine is always on and I have great battery life (very scientific reporting I know) lol

    So, I have been looking at some old videos on youtube of the official Note product commercials. It was interesting to see all of the features from Notes past. Some, I had completely forgotten about. However, in looking at all these great features, I decided to do some exploring with my Note 8 again and I have rediscovered scrapbook and the glance features. These are really helpful.
    Amazing the number of features that have disappeared.

    Thanks for the reminder about scrapbook. I had used it a lot in previous Note phones. It's definitely a great way to organize screen clips.

    I'm not sure that I didn't overlook the app in the Galaxy App store but couldn't find it. I ended up finding a link online to the apk. Why Samsung seems to have dropped support is beyond me.

    Once it was installed and I turned on the sync function, everything from my Samsung account downloaded without issue. I'm very happy to have this feature back.

    I have discovered that with the screen off memo - pull out the spen - write and don't close the screen - like if you are making a list and want to add to it - the screen will time out - just double tap the home button and it comes right back up and you can keep adding to the note! I always thought I had to save it, and the go to Samsung notes and then edit then add then save etc. That takes a lot of time. Love the screen off memo app! I'm sure this applies to the Note 9 as well.

    I'm curious what do you all use NFC before because my note8 is the first I noticed that had it and to be honest I just have no idea about it and what I could use it for

    I don't know all the uses but I believe it is turned on when using one of the programs used for paying with your phone. Can also be used in some cases to transfer things between phones.

    It's not really something that was "discovered", but I absolutely love the unobtrusive text message notifications! That small bubble is amazing, especially for such a large screen. Don't know if I'll lose it when I finally switch to another app from the stock one but it's helped keep me on the stock app
    I dont have a bubble,can u show me what u mean,if u dont mind.

    I have only had Android Pie for an hour on my Note 8, but so far I am loving it. I like the steps being available with a pull down for Samsung Health, I like the new camera selection for video, I like the crispness of everything thus far, I like the bold font size option. Nothing screwy so far. I will see how the battery does and let you know with an update. Yay Android PIe!

    I have smart lock that keeps my phone unlocked in proximity to my Pebble watch.
    Therefore I do not often need to use the iris scanner unless the screen has been off for several hours overnight, at which point my eyes are all gummed up with sleep It's the one time it doesn't work so well.

    Next SMS is a reasonable replacement with good themes and configurations.

    I have a NFC tag on my alarm clock that does 2 things. First tap turns screen brightness down & mutes all sounds. Then on second tap turns my screen brightness to auto and un-mutes all sounds. I have another one at work that just turns off Bluetooth, wi-fi, & mutes ringers on first tap & then turns it all back on second tap. I have one in my wallet so all I do is tap my phone to my wallet to open Andriod pay app.

    I have also made a few hard to find Amiibos for my switch.
