    Video Saturday it seems. From AC. Hey I didn't name this video.
    Pretty much spot on to what people have been posting on the forums.
    Partial spoiler alert...

    #1 . Bixby. Samsung is probably saying, "Ouch." Maybe they'll listen and remove the button on Note 8

    It's not a perfect phone by any means. But one that I am enjoying using immensely.

    No matter what phone you get there will be things you don't like. The things listed on this video are real minor issues, the FPS being the biggest issue but a lot ofpeople have said it's not as bad as they thought it would be. Between the three biometric unlock methods most people will find one that works for them. There always the pattern and pin unlock methods, so there are plenty of ways to unlock your​ phone.

    I just want to say my FP scanner seems quicker than what he was showing. Also, with a case, I don't think I've ever touched the camera lens trying to unlock the phone. Bixby, the Iris and face recognition, and the home button are pretty annoying in very minute ways. I think Bixby is the worst of them all though.

    From a padewan trainee perspective, as mentioned previously, with all mass produced devices, there are going to be issues. There are also differences in user experience and expectations that these issues will affect or irritate more than others.

    Bixby arguably should have been ready at launch and will be pushed out with continual updates making it better. It's an issue and one that has been previously acknowledged and bemoaned by thousands of posts both prior to and after launch. While we wait, there's Google assistant or the old fashioned way, hop on the Internet and diy. I am old enough to remember when there was no Internet.

    FPS accuracy, onscreen home button, improved iris scanner and facial recognition. From a total non-expert. It would seem that some or all could be improved with software updates. Fast charging might be addressed on future devices such as the GN8 and GS9.

    The placement of the fps, while not the best place, is an issue that is otherwise a issue of laziness. Whether you put a case on it or not, it's all muscle memory. Two possible reasons could be delays in having it incorporated in the onscreen home button and it's position being similar to the G6 would result in a smaller battery or a thicker device. We all know how sensitive Samsung is about batteries. Build a bridge and get over it. To me, just my opinion and not diminishing concerns by others who have a legitimate issue with it, it's a case of snowflake butt hurt and whininess. Getting tired of the whining in every single GS8 review video.

    I like the fact that Samsung tries to push a multitude of features to best the competition. Think how many features that were introduced on previous devices that were annoying then but are much better now. From what I I understand, the edge panels were inadvertently reacting just by holding the device in the wrong way. I have had no issues with them on the GS8, my first curved display device. Do they try too hard and have duds and launch ones that aren't quite ready? Sure but this is a double edged sword. You will have complaints that Samsung isn't responding to consumers like other manufacturers.

    It's true. There are many little annoyances that just add up to kind of a medium size annoyance in using the phone. I guess you get used to it, but in many ways the S8 is a step back from the S7 Edge.

    I still think the S7 Edge is the superior phone despite the S8 looking a little sleeker.

    I don't see an option to do that by default you open every time. But you can swipe to the right and in albums select camera that'll show only pics taken by camera.

    You guys need some perspective. There are 5× the people buying the S8 right now than any other Android phone. Of course there will be early issues. And it's all being posted here as it should. There are a bunch of happy users that are out enjoying their phone.

    If you aren't comfortable being an early adopter, don't jump on a new device until it's been a while. Not making excuses for Samsung but with many mass produced devices, there are software and hardware issues. If issues bother you enough, try an exchange.

    No I just turned auto correct off. It's a minor issue that's more Android based than particular to just the s8 I would think.

    I don't think this is true. I went back to the first couple of weeks after the release of the iPhone 7 and found about the same number of bugs reported.
    Right. Any new phone will have issues if you're an early adopter. And the more popular the phone, the more people will experience issues.

    If you hate it, return it.

    It's the same for anything else. If you're looking for negatives or positives, you will find it.

    I felt the same way about the Note 4 coming from the S4. Swyping was such a pleasure on the S4 but I never really got the Note 4 trained the same way.

    I'm not whining nor did I say I hate it. Don't be so butt hurt. I was more posting feedback here to see if there was any input or help to improve the issue.

    I saw Alex bring this up in the video and I have heard them complain about this in podcast as well, unable to use FPS and Iris scanner at the same time. What do they mean? I have set up both and can use either option to unlock. For example one time I can use FPS, next time if I decide to use Iris scanner to unlock.

    What am I misunderstanding?

    Facial recognition and iris scanner can't be used at the same time. They mentioned it since they both have opposing flaws. One sucks in bright light, the other in dark places.
