    Oh I agree the camera sucks. I thought you hated the phone in general.
    Every Sammy phone I've owned was way slower than my V20. Not even close. This includes Note 7

    Lol. Agreed.

    Yet if you moved the gas pedal to say the Engine he'd have a valid point !!

    What's going to suck is the Note 8 is right around the corner and will have the fingerprint sensor under the glass home button on the front. Everyone that buys the S8 will be regret their purchase once this comes out.

    After seeing this video I'm having second thoughts.
    care less. got money now. not 7 months later when i dont. matter of fact after mu tradein....the price for me will be out of pocket it 250. try to buy a note 8 on that

    we arent walking atms and its insanity to trade up everytime a new device comes out every 3 or 6 months. addiction.i got my asus gaming laptop which was 2900 buks, with 7th gen i 7 and 1080 graphics, thats why i dont or wont nlow 11 or 1200 on a note 7.my s8 plus and s7edge will do very well.

    im not gulible to a dude on youtube.its sickening for those to pop one off and say dont buy it. whats next, EVERYONES GOT AN OPINION LIKE...........fill in the blank.

    That's a poor argument. 1. Gas and brake pedals are really easy to reach. 2. I could never accidentally press something else when I'm reaching for a pedal. 3. The seat can be adjusted to reach the pedals. You can't adjust the placement of the fingerprint sensor on the S8s.

    Look, I think the S8s are beautiful phones, but even I admit the placement of the FPS is terrible. Nobody should be excusing it.

    I agree, not a beautiful phone. Too long, made of glass, not enough bezels to hold it, curved corners weird me out. Maybe it'll grow on me, but for now it's a bag of blunders.

    Apparently Samsung is aware of placement issue and the phone will warn you to clean the camera lens occasionally

    I sure hope not. I don't need volume and camera smudge warnings.

    2. I've driven only manual transmission my entire life. They're all slightly different. I've accidentally tapped the brake while pushing for the clutch. Recently had a cast on my foot and did this horribly. 3. The reach for the fingerprint sensor is adjustable much like your car seat slides forward you slide your hand up the phone.

    If I'm still smudging my camera lens even a week after I buy the damn phone.... Then I'm going to give it to someone who is capable of not smudging it. I'm sure in the first half hour I'll have the placement mastered. I've got bigger issues to fret over. To each their own.

    So I wasn't expecting to like it, but it's worse than I thought. It's almost flush with the back of the device, exactly like the camera. There is no way to "feel" for it. Almost indistinguishable from the camera horrible job Samsung.
    I thought it wasn't as bad as I feared once I held it. We'll see how I adapt to it. I pre-ordered after playing with it.

    My car is a manual and I've never had that issue. I mean, one stops the car and the other puts it in neutral.

    If a phone has to have a popup warning you that the camera is too smudgy to use, maybe they should've rethought the FPS placement.

    Can't agree with that more regarding the warning. I wasn't aware of that until this thread. However, I have the V20 now and the Pixel XL previously and just in general I always wipe the lens with something prior to taking a photo. My girlfriend has an S7 Edge and her pictures always look like shut coz she never wipes her lens. It's right next to the HR sensor. I personally have never used a fingerprint sensor for more than a day on any device.

    Ok. So I stopped at Best Buy and played with the S8+. I found the fingerprint reader was not as weird as I thought.

    For starters, it is slightly recessed and I knew immediately by touch that my finger was resting on it. I purposely put my finger on the camera lens and could readily distinguish that my finger was NOT on the reader. Also, as a left handed user, it did not feel awkward with my finger on the reader. When holding the phone one handed it felt natural to put my finger right where the reader is at.

    Now I don't have small hands. I could see how if you're a smaller person that it could be awkward for the 8+. The S8 though didn't feel awkward either.

    As for other concerns that you can't unlock the phone while it is in a cradle or laying down. The Samsung rep said that the retina scanner is as fast as the fingerprint reader. He said it unlocks in about a second.

    Granted my observations are subjective.

    The fingerprint reader location is not a deal killer for me.

    My two cents...for what it's worth.

    3 months in it will be a non issue. i am more wrapped up in weather i should leave the back button on the left or right.
    What are you, an animal?! You know what side the back button belongs on

    'Tis a silly argument, since something better is ALWAYS around the corner. If I were to take this guy's advice, I'd never purchase a goddamn thing.

    That's a poor argument. 1. Gas and brake pedals are really easy to reach. 2. I could never accidentally press something else when I'm reaching for a pedal. 3. The seat can be adjusted to reach the pedals. You can't adjust the placement of the fingerprint sensor on the S8s.

    Look, I think the S8s are beautiful phones, but even I admit the placement of the FPS is terrible. Nobody should be excusing it.
    Basically some will like it others will not, some don't care because they will use the retina burning technology...LOL

    I think most that want to use it will adapt.

    I'm still baffled as to why they put it up there.
    They were trying to get the reader under the screen, but Synaptics was unable to provide a workable solution in time. By that point, so much stuff had been engineered it was the only place that was feasible.

    If Synaptics works it out in time, the fingerprint reader could be under the screen on the Note 8.
