    How's the pressure sensitive virtual home button? Can you still double "click" to launch the camera?
    Been wondering if the virtual home button could still launch the camera as well!

    So they crammed a 5.8" screen into a small phone, great. But the aspect ratio is unlike 95% of the other phones out there. So when watching videos on youtube for example, what is the effective screen size for 16:9 videos once you subtract the presumed black bars on each side? I would think there would be a lot of interest in this question since a lot of us spend a lot of time watching videos.. thanks

    Hi, I would love to know what the maximum length the shutter speed can be set to in 'pro mode' in the camera app ?
    Am hoping it's more than 10 seconds like the S7!
    Many thanks!

    I saw a video by SuperSaf TV which show double tapping the power button to quick launch the camera.

    What are the framerate and resolution options for slow motion? There was a rumor of 1000 fps, presumably at SD or lower resolution.

    Same here since the speakers on my S7 Edge wasn't all that great.

    Can the virtual home button wake the phone or do you need to use the power button? Can it also launch the camera from standby?

    How would you compare the accidental edge touches on the s8 vs the s7 edge? This was main gripe with the s7 edge.
    So far so good. It's WAY easier to swipe in from the left side of apps that still require it. It's not perfect but it's more like the Note 7 than the GS7.

    What Android OS version?
    What color S8 do you have?

    How the battery life so far? I'm assuming great since it's BRAND NEW, lol.

    Is it slippery? Or more slippery than the S7 Edge?
    It's shipping with Android 7.0 with the March or April security patch. The one I have is orchid grey and it's very nice. Really like the slight purple hue in the silver when it hits the right light.

    It's definitely slippery but I haven't had a problem using it with one hand so far. And battery... Not really going to answer that yet.

    How easy it one-handed use?
    Pretty good. The GS8 is slightly more compact than the S7 edge and I have been using it one-handed with no issue. The sides are pretty slippery because the bezels are so slim but you'll get used to it quickly.

    Honestly the virtual home button is fine, though I definitely miss the fingerprint sensor being there. The camera shortcut has moved to the power button on the right side of the screen. Bummer tbh

    What is the purpose of the pressure home button? Do you have to press hard to go home, or can you tap it like any other software key?
    Yeah the button is merely meant to make the transition from physical to virtual a bit easier. You don't have to press harder than normal but when you do press harder the taptic engine follows suit and gives you more feedback. It's pretty great.

    Beautiful! I ordered a Midnight Black version but I would definitely use this one if the black one wasn't available.

    Camera feel like a downgrade from the 7 series devices? Only ask because I've read that it appears to have less detail in the produced images. I've read a bunch already today but I think that may have come from somebody's review on here. Maybe the first post on this thread. Lol

    This is what I want to know also. Does it have it so you can have the keyboard, dialpad, and calculator keyboard reduced and put on the right side or left side. The S7 edge had this till nougat was downloaded. Thanks

    The pictures are gorgeous, but it just seems so "fragile", like handling a piece of china, like I'd be afraid to 'use' it . . What's your opinion?
