    Are you able to do the facial recognition test? Take your pic with one to unlock the other. YouTube video shows this is possible.

    Fingerprint is a little awkward, Samsung rep said facial recognition is the least secure way to secure your phone. It will not recongnize a photo but if the person is sleeping it'll unlock still.
    Already been spoofed with a photo. Too bad.

    Ability to double tap the power of other button to get quick access to the camera?
    I am going to miss double tapping the home button for camera. Power button isn't nearly as fast for me.


    And this whole picture to unlock thing is a non issue. If you really want a secure phone you will use passcode and not iris scanner or fingerprint. Both of which are defeated by bad people. Choose the level you are comfortable with.

    Can you sell me on the + versus the normal s8? Is it really worth the upgraded cost?
    Hey, I intended on getting the s8 (I have smaller hands and was worried about the size of the s8+) but when I had them both in front of me and held them there was no way I would have picked the regular s8. The s8+ feels really good to hold because of it being taller not wider than most phones. So with the larger screen and battery it's a no brainer for me! Get the s8+ my friend

    Just as I thought.

    Given that it can also unlock with a photo, I won't be using it. Have never bothered with it since ICS.

    Early tests clearly proof that a photograph will indeed unlock the S8 via facial recognition.

    That is always my concern. I went to the Edge 7 knowing the screen wasn't as big as I liked. The 8+ is longer but compared to the Edge7 is it any wider?
    I took this picture of the plus next to my s7 edge to show the difference in size

    Can the Bixby button be reprogrammed to do something else?

    Yes. It's a little tall but if you held a note 7 imagine a thin note 7. Only problem I have is they put the fingerprint scanner way up by the camera.
    Yeah...that fingerprint scanner is a bit off....guess they ran out of time for the pressure fingerprint unlock under the screen or may come with the note 8

    With regards to notifications: have you seen them in action; are they easily missed? What is the quality of the LED?

    I love the G6 but its lack of LED notifications makes me also look at the GS8 for future considerations.

    I didn't get to see it in action because his phone was a pre-production model. I'll check our demo out!

    Synaptics is the company that has the under screen finger print sensor. Agree it may make it in the Note 8 & maybe the iPhone 8? What will be interesting is if Apple will mess with it. They do not typically take risks with new hardware. But all the news points to them placing an order for oled screens from Samsung. So if their screens are ordered, they may as well have a fps on the back of their device if it still not ready for the mass market.

    How do you spoof the iris scanner? Those are almost impossible to spoof. Passcodes can be stolen.

    Someone could rip out your eyeball and hold it in front of your phone.
