    Fingerprint sensor is good and works about 90% of the time.
    .
    You should be getting it right 99.9999% barring a dirty sensor or finger.

    I just wanted to offer up a tip for those that are having fingerprint sensor issues. Most of you more experienced users probably already know this. I'm not suggesting FD that you aren't experienced.

    When setting up the sensor with the digit of choice don't be afraid to rotate the finger or thumb from right to left, left to right...think of a clock face and move your finger or thumb from 9 o clock to three o clock so it can read at 10, 11, 12, 1, 2 each time. Continue until the reader is finished. I understand that the placement of the 8 series promotes the fore finger but this works as a general rule for most of the later generation sensors..

    I fully understand what you are saying and thank you for the advice but I believe my case is what is causing the problem. It is a deep opening not allowing me to place my finger properly on the sensor all the time.

    I love my S8+. At first I wasn't sure if i liked the placement of the finger sensor, but now it's no problem at all. And just when I thought this phone couldn't get any better I got the Bixby Voice and now it's even more brilliant! Bixby Voice puts circles around Siri!

    he best-looking phone around crushes it in performance, battery life, water-resis but Its awkwardly placed fingerprint reader leads to camera smears and longer unlock times, which is aggravating when you use it to unlock your phone dozens of times a day.
    The Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.

    Just picked up my S8 two days ago. Coming from a OnePlus 3T the differences I can tell after two days.

    -The OnePlus is definitely snappier and smoother.
    -Battery life is better optimized on the S8.
    -Camera on the S8 makes the OnePlus's look like it came out of a Fisher-Price toy.
    -Finger Print scanner on the OnePlus is miles ahead of the S8's. (I gave up on the S8's and went back to just using a pin).
    -Screen quality, once again makes the OnePlus's look like a Fisher-Price toy.

    Those are my observations in the last 48 hours.

    Hard to believe you don't like the finger print sensor on the S8 and where it is.
    You can sit your phone up however you like it to be setup.

    I'm just used to the OnePlus fingerprint scanner ... Most of the time I have the phone laying down on my office desk and I just quickly unlock it from the front so the fingerprint scanner is somewhat useless here but I can really complain since it's the price to pay to have this beautiful screen.

    Dont know how anything could be faster and easier than the finger print sensor on the back.
    My OL hates change. She had a S7E.
    When she got the S8+ she said its gonna take some time to get used to the finger print sensor.
    Why did they change it.
    Within 5 minutes she said, Dang you only need one hand to hold the phone to use the finger print sensor.
    On the S7 you needed two.
    Guess its what you get used to.

    Are you the proud new owner of a Samsung Galaxy S8? OK - I realize as I type this, I'm a little early (the launch event is next week), but I can't help myself.

    This forum is for all the S8 owners out there that want to share their own reviews. Post them here in a new thread to share your experience. What you like, what you don't like, include pictures, links, videos, anything at all to help illustrate your review.

    Don't be shy, share with us and let us know your thoughts on the S8!
    I am disappointed in some of the JIM to many clicks for simple actions. Sometimes I can't start a message without jumping to contacts first. The power on button is poorly placed opposite of other buttons that make it difficult to turn off. My phone has needed 16 soft restarts in my first month of ownership and I didn't install any software. I know there are a lot of good reviews on this phone but my HTC10 was much better.

    Really
    A different operating system. Which I really like.

    No home Key of the front.
    Giving you more screen area on the phone.

    Its on the back and 5 times easier to operate.
    And you unlock your phone with one hand.
    Got a USB-C charging port.
    Which charges the phone faster.

    MY Wife even said.
    How long is it gonna take me to get used to the finger print sensor on the back.
    With in about 3 minutes she was saying , What a great Idea.
    She had a S7E.
    And said , man the S8+ is faster.
    She has adapted to it super fast.
    And no way does she want to go back to her S7+.

    I like the setting menu better.

    If it was not worth the money.
    Sure you would loose some money.
    But you could always put it up for sale if you are not happy with it.
    And do you not have so many days before you can take it back ?

    There is nothing I would like to change on my S8+. It is beyond beautiful, super fast and battery life is great. Fingerprint sensor at the back is genius, even with my tiny female hand it is very easy to operate and never fails. Absolutely love this device.
