    I'm starting to use the iris more. It's much better than the note 7 and almost as fast as the fps. Currently going case less while my screen protector dries and it's a lot harder to find the fps without a case.

    FPS awkward but getting better at it. It just works 1000 times better than the other biometric methods.

    I'll probably stick with Pattern, FPS combo.

    This IRIS Scanner like with the Note 7 is a PITA since I'm wearing prescription glasses .

    PIN. Thinking of trying the iris scanner. Still old school. Don't trust biometric security.

    Iris scanner works well for me. I've unlocked even in a dark room

    I won't even try the FPS since I've tried numerous times trying to reach for it but my hands are way too small. No biggie ahem ahem.

    I have reverted to trusted devices/places both FPS is not 100% accurate like my other devices. Iris scanner is also not 100% for me and I need to move the phone closer/farther. Too much have to think for unlocking so trusted devices it is for now ☺️

    Personally, never have Samsung FPS worked well for me even after registering multiple fingers in different angles. Probably because of the weird scanning shape instead of the round ones like all other phones.

    Iris scanner works perfect for me with my glasses on. Did you register your iris's without your glasses. That's how I did it for my note 7 and s8.

    Iris scanner and fingerprint scanner.

    Fingerprint if I'm not looking at my phone directly or don't want to swipe to activate it.

    I don't have a problem with either. Iris scanner even works with safety glasses on.

    FPS for me all day. I'm always wearing sunglasses so iris is out.

    Still getting used to the location of the FP but it's fast and accurate as a mofo.

    Lately I've been using the FPS. Even though it's in a strange position, I find it easy to find with both hands.

    Agreed. With my Spigen case on there it has made it pretty easy to find.

    Yes, I did even with the Note 7.

    Who knows, I'm probably not holding it right.

    Some people have said that a case limits accidental camera touches. I can't wait to get mine.

    I Double Tap To Wake. My last few phones have unlocked this way so it was a great surprise to randomly discover I could do it on the s8+

    I have Smart unlock enabled using my smartwatch and Bluetooth as trusted devices so I don't need the FPS etc. All I do now is Double Tap the virtual home button then swipe anywhere on the lock screen to unlock. It works fantastic

    how do you do that on your S8, have a friend who was just complaining about not being able to do that.

    Set up Smart unlock (have a Bluetooth device/home location/smart watch etc as a trusted device) so you don't need the fingerprint sensor or pin code etc to unlock the phone. I have Always On Display on and always show the home button. So when the phone is locked I just double tap on the virtual home button then swipe anywhere and the phone unlocks. It works great and is almost identical to my Lumia 950 xl or old LG G5.
