    Wow, the S8 facial recognition can be defeated with just a photo.

    Did you see any stutters or frame drops?( on my S7 Edge they were most noticeable in Google Chrome when pressing the toggle to see all opened tabs for ex.). The only thing i'm concerned about is that they added too many features and even with SD 835 and Exynos 8895 still will not be enough for a near stock fluid experience. Thanks

    Can you set the Bixby button to do something more useful?

    How does headphone output compare to the HTC 10 or LG V20 (whichever you have access to)?

    I previously read a rumour that the camera will be capable of capturing 1000fps. Is this true?

    Would you recommend S8 over other smartphones to the people?

    And this.
    OK, I've given the speaker a good listen and here's the thing: it's not very accurate, but damn this thing gets LOUD for a single down-firing speaker. Not sure I love it, but you'll definitely hear it.

    Yes, absolutely. The phone uses two sensors depending on the model, one from Samsung and one from Sony, and they're pretty similar. What Samsung knows how to do better than Sony is image processing.

    Which other smartphones? So far the S8 is leading the pack this year, definitely.

    No the Bixby button is mapped to either Bixby Home (press) or Bibxy Talk (press and hold).

    Can you try mirroring the screen to a Chromecast? Are there black bars on the top and bottom of your TV when the S8 is in landscape orientation? If so, is there any setting on the phone that allows you to adjust the displayed area on the S8 to a standard 16:9 ratio?
    You can force apps to readjust to fit the 18.5:9 screen. I haven't tested it with Chromecast (won't be able to until next week) but so far I don't see it being an issue.

    So far, so fluid. Will have to test more thoroughly during the review period. Remember, this is pre-production hardware and software.

    In your use so far, how is the phone handling heat? Is it getting warm with moderate use?
    I have the Snapdragon version (the one that will be available in the U.S. and Canada) and haven't noticed any heat during use, even during gaming, but it does get a bit hot during charging. Nothing to worry about, though โ€” standard stuff.

    I agree. I'd love to do my S7e naked, but it's way too slippery and I assume this will be the same. Moto used to do a good job with their phones making them so they didn't seem like china.
    Yeah, it's a bit slippery I'll be honest. I don't want to have to put it in a case, but I think I will during winter when I use gloves and things are a bit more slippery.

    Is it possible to change the look of the soft keys to look more like traditional Android soft keys or even the pixel soft keys?
    Nope. You can rearrange the icons and change the colors, but not the actual design.

    Can you unlock the phone via the fingerprint without turning the screen on?
    Yes! It's awesome.

    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!
    10 seconds max. Sorry

    Can you turn on Image Stabilization when recording 4K? For some reason when recording in 4K on the S7 you weren't able to use image stabilization.

    The hardware image stabilization is crap when recording videos and its why I record at 1440p.
