    The finger print scanner located on the back really doesn't bother me anymore and it seems faster than the S7 finger print sensor. I have facial recognition set on it but still find it faster to use the finger print scanner.

    It's a non issue for me now. Also the iPhone 8 will still not be as good as the S8 and Note 8. Probably will still be stuck a year behind as usual with iPhone.

    I'm glad I wasn't able to get the 7 Plus when I returned the Note. I was going to order it the day of pre sales but it was sold out. I like the s8 Plus a lot better!
    Out of curiosity have you tried the eye scanner ? Mine works a bit too well lolz through my normal and polarized glasses in the brightess sunlight or the darkess of nights face recognition didn't work for me but i do agree the fps seems faster than anything (didn't try the s7 but it's clearly faster than my note 5 and s6 for sure). Personally though i hate iphones i simply cannot accept that closed ecosystem mentality and i don't have any other apple products + i'd rather die than use itunes ahah :P

    Yea, I've used the iris scanner before but I wear contacts and without them in it won't pickup my eyes.

    Apple just sucks. Period.

    The S8 isn't a perfect phone, but it is a great phone, one that I've grown addicted to, even with all its imperfections. Worrying about sales is silly, as Samsung is coming off the best selling phones in their history.

    What many people here fail to realize is that most people don't buy phones every six months like they do on this site. Many kept to a two year upgrade cycle because of the old phone contracts with phone subsidies. Now that contracts are gone many people are enjoying the savings on their wireless bill and don't see the need to finance new phones. I don't feel the need to rush out and buy a phone just because it is new. Phone prices are on the rise, so its not surprising that sales are off.

    Also, I don't know if these numbers include corporate purchases, but in the USA iPhones pretty much have a lock on many corporate environments.

    Eh, we heard the same nonsense last year about the S7.

    It's been 3 months. Get back to me at the end of the year and we'll talk. The S8 will sell just fine.

    Well yeah, kinda of... lol

    The point is not everyone buys a new phone in April. The S8 will continue sell all throughout the summer, fall and holiday seasons.

    I'm sure Samsung is feeling the heat from other OEMs all over. But that's actually to our benefit as consumers, keeping Samsung and everyone else competitive.

    I wonder if the S8 Plus sales will hurt Note 8 sales since the Note 8 looks like it will be similar but maybe slightly bigger screen.

    I say this because people have or will buy the S8 Plus because they want a big screen. These same people could have been Note buyers because they buy the Note line in order to have a big screen and Spen.

    This is the first time they have made the main Galaxy S phone with a huge screen at launch. So it will be interesting to see what Note sales will be like.

    Are you guys going to buy the Note 8 if it's like over $900 and the only main difference is the Spen on it? It sounds like it will basically be an S8 Plus with an Spen.

    I don't think I will buy the Note 8 unless later in the year IF they have a killer sale on the Tmobile version or unlocked version. I might buy the Tab s3 if it goes on sale again but cheaper than $450. I'm hoping they come out with a cheaper 8 inch version of the Tab s3. I don't like Tablets with 9 inches and bigger screens. Might as well just carry my laptop around then.

    Eh it might have "lesser specs" but will still run more smoothly because of the tight control apple has. I mean the A10 chip in the iPhone 7 still crushes anything from Qualcomm and Samsung in terms of raw performance, with half the cores that are in the snapdragon and exynos chips. I think the iPhone 8 will look similar to the G6 and maybe have a FPS under the screen (or in the power button like some rumors have said)

    I wear contacts and do not have this issue, with or without them in. Seems like an odd issue.
