    I actually don't like the FPS location on the note9. I liked the location on the 8 better....

    You're right, never thought I'd hear anyone like where and how fps on Note 8 (or S8+)).

    It's faster and easy to use. Plus biometric iris + face is improvised

    I don't have a Note 9, but I have an S8. From my experience with the S8 and just eyeballing the S9/Note 9, it's just too close to the camera. Needs to be a little lower. Then it's perfect.

    I dont mind it a bit, having it in the center. Was used to the note 8 position, and used to this one now.

    It's just an awkward place for me and I have to hold my hand in a way where i twist my hand a little to reach it better.

    I'm using the Samsung S view case on my phone and I have it set up so the phone just turns on when I lift the cover. I don't like using the FPS on this phone. I do like the layout on the S9+.

    I like the location of the Note 9 FPS. It's easy for me to reach without touching the camera.

    The FPS didn't bother me on the Note8 or the Note9. I adjusted as soon as I started using the phone but I did notice that the FPS on the Note9 is a lot more responsive than the Note8.

    I have small fingers so it works well for me...except when my nails get too long ha ha. But I can see those with big fingers having a problem.

    I like Note 9's better, easier to place my finger accurately. For Note 8 almost 50% of the time I need to scan at least two times to be successful

    The intelligent scan works so well I find myself using the fps less and less.

    That said the placement of the fps is fine for my usage.

    I like both note 8 and Note 9 placement.

    I can deal with both but prefer the note 9 placement with it being a little further down the phone and centered. Using it one handed feels a little more secure to me as the phone feels more balanced.

    Placing the FPS beside the camera was their reason why I skipped the Note 8, sold the S8+ quickly. Unlike the S series I love the Note and first time I didn't upgrade.

    My only complaint is I want Round FPS.

    I like the round look on some phones but it would look funny on a rectangle phone with rectangular cameras as well. Glad they went with the squared look.

    Agreed, Note 8 location was better. I never once smudged the camera with the 8

    I dislike the FPS being on the back so much I would go as far as to say the Note 4 had a better FPS.

    I miss unlocking my phone on my desk without picking it up.

    I think everyone is going to be different based on what they are used to, or how they handle their phone.

    For me, I like it better than the HTC 10 as I used to accidentally unlock it all the time.

    One thing is for sure, I have NO interest in face or iris scanning... what about when I am driving ... :-) It is also less secure...

    The sensor on the note 8 isn't actually next to the camera despite every moron reviewer in the world acting like it is. It is next to the heart rate monitor and light. The camera is on the other side of those things.

    I had that phone for a year and never once accidently put my finger on the camera when trying to use the fingerprint scanner. That is such an absurd criticism.

    Maybe it is too high on the device to effectively reach for some people, I won't say that's an inaccurate complaint, but anyone who has a problem accidently touching the camera when trying to touch the finger print sensor is....well I'll be charitable and say that basically anyone could quickly learn to do it right even if they got the location wrong the first couple tries.

    I think the placement now increases the risk of touching the camera compared to the 8. I like to use it to pull down my notifications, but if I put my finger too high to start the swipe down, I'll hit the camera. I'll probably learn to avoid that, but that wasn't a problem on the 8.

    For me, the sensor position of the Note9 compared to the Note8 is much better. I just slide my finger up the middle back of the phone and hit it. The Note8 took a few tries most times to get my finger in the right spot. The success rate is greatly improved as well.

    When it's on your desk unlock it with a 4 digit pin
