    Does the software reject unintentional touches? That is what drives me nuts on my Note 5. I worry with zero bezel it will be worse.
    It is worse.

    How good is the Iris scanner? Is it fast and accurate enough to use instead of fingerprint scanner?
    I didn't think there was an iris scanner. Just a face scanner. Much less secure.

    What do you think about the phone's screen? Also, is Touchwizz any better?

    Does it keep the accesability feature from the S7 that creates an mouse pointe witn an virtual touchpad, while it its an accesabilty feature I found it very useful to navigate legacy websites not touch optimized.

    This. The most anticipated phone of the new year gets released. The editor of AC starts an AMA thread, surely knowing that lots of folks are eagerly awaiting first hand observations. Then, after the first few responses, it's radio silence.

    I know how busy we all get, and I'm sure Daniel is spread super thin, but if that's the case don't START AN AMA THREAD.

    I've noticed the units at my local Best Buy have pink hues on the edges of the screen when scrolling through white sections of the phone like settings or the messages app. I don't know if it's a defect of those particular units or indicative of a larger problem. Have you noticed anything using your unit?

    You're right. My bad. His title listed on this site is "Managing Editor".

    Again, my only point is that it's ridiculous to start this type of thread, saying you have the device and to ask you anything, and then to seemingly blow it off after a handful of responses.

    Ah, I see if you click on his pic that the managing editor thing pops up. I didn't see that before.

    yeah, duh, if it's a photo of your face, then facial recognition should, you know, recognize it.

    I believe many people, including myself, thought it was more sophisticated (ie. 3d scanning). I believe that simple facial recognition was added in ICS. Sounds like Iris scanning will be the best security, if it'll work better than the Note 7.

    The iris scanner on my note 7 was great! It was definitely more consistent that the fingerprint sensor on my s7 edge. I was sad to give it up.

    I used the iris scanner on the Note 7. The iris scanner on the S8 is supposed to be improved.

    Well I don't know how you get it but @Daniel Bader does the S8 has some clues on if it will work with Daydream?

    Does it has the Daydream app installed? if not, have you tried the device in a Daydream Headset and installing the app?

    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)?

    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.

    This was Daniel's​ response.

    I've heard that that the speaker is louder. Thanks for confirming this. I still would prefer stereo speakers but if it's louder than the S7e then I guess I'll take it.

    Actually when I tried it in a shop I wasn't impressed. It may be that Samsung's pre-loaded tones are mostly very quiet: I found a couple where I thought it was loud enough to be usable, but most failed dismally. Without a known source it's hard to tell what's the speaker and what's the source file, but it didn't inspire confidence.

    S8 and S8+ were indistinguishable.
