    After a few hours with the phone I noticed you can touch the FPS to unlock the phone with the screen off. With my spigen case on, I'm close to 100% accuracy. No complaints here

    How does Samsung Pay work now that the fps is on the back? Do you touch the sensor and then place the phone against the reader?

    It's just the location change. Whatever apps support the fps continue to work the same way irrespective of it's in the back or front.

    That's the way it has always been, no need to keep touching the fp sensor to pay, I think that's just an Apple Pay requirement.

    I really liked the face unlock however the downfall of not having the FPS activated is that some apps like 1password or my rbc banking app that allow you to log in with the FPS won't allow you to do so if you're not currently using the FPS. I'm on the plus and it's kinda annoying however I have a smart watch and use smart lock so I really only use the FPS to sign into apps

    Should I be able to wake and unlock my S8+ by just placing my registered finger on the FPS?

    So in order for it to work your phone has to actually be locked.

    So if you have a time period before it locks then no it won't work like that.

    I got the S8 plus. Tried reaching it, didnt seem to bad but I wont be using it. I never used it on my V10 or Note 4 either. Tried Iris scanner and it seems to work very quickly so I'll just be using that.
