    I really hope they totally omit the FPS on the upcoming S9 and/or note 9. With the 3d facial reading tech and the Iris scanner, the FPS is obsolete. Anyone else?

    See, for me, I love my fingerprint scanner. It's quick and easy into the phone and my muscle memory my fingers is just so used to it. The iris scanner does work I just still find it a bit too gimmicky for me though.

    The fingerprint scanners quick efficient and easy. Just like on the pixel phones and I'd only unlock the phone but it gets you passed the lock screen within milliseconds.
    That and it also a hacks as the way to quickly pull down the notification bar again just like the pixel phones.

    I like the FPS. No need for Samsung to copy the iPhone X as far as ditching the sensor. If they ditch the FPS, I'll ditch Samsung.

    Dont get me wrong. I like it. There just seems to be so much nonsense on reviews and ppl complaining about it that it takes away from how good the phone really is. I've never understood the complaints against it.

    I don't like the placement but the usefulness of it I like a lot

    People will always find some reason or some way to complain about something on the phone no matter what. The fingerprint scanner had so much functional and usefulness.

    I barely have to touch mine and it registers. Use it multiple times a day and open Samsung Pay with it. I didn't have any issue with it when I started using the phone, nor do I have any issue with it now.

    Yes, tech reviews have blasted Samsung FPS from day one. I'd prefer it placed differently, but have no problem using it as is.
    Just can't get the face recognition or iris scanner to work consistently though. Guess we'll see how the face recognition pans out on iPhone. You can be sure that if it's a massive success, Samsung will try to exceed it in the S9.

    I'm a leftie, so the placement of the FPS is actually perfect for me...I use it all the time. I'd be really disappointed if they ditched it.

    I hated the FPS location at first but it literally takes about a week to get used to it and it feels completely natural now. I have no issues with it. It works fast and almost flawlessly. Only time I have issues is at the gym when I have chalk on my hands but that's a given.

    I don't like the iris scanner, I wear glasses, and I don't care for facial recognition. I like the finger print scanner.

    I much prefer it in its current spot than on the front. To me it's easier to reach with my finger on the back than stretching my thumb to the bottom of the screen.

    I didn't like the placement of the FPS at first like a lot of others but if you use a case it makes finding it much easier. I don't care for the other options and using the FPS to unlock apps is a nice feature.

    I don't think Samsung is going to ditch the FPS. Fingerprint security is still hard to easily bypass and it is still more convenient than facial recognition (and more secure). For some the placement of the FPS on the S8 and the Note 8 is not ideal, but the security is still very good. If Samsung can figure out the FPS reader in the screen, then that's even better.

    I don't care for the placement of it like everyone else but have grown to use it as my preferred way to unlock my phone. All because I can just reach up and tap it to unlock with one step. Rather than the iris or face recognition that adds another step

    OP sounds like an Apple fanboy trolling.

    I wont buy a phone without a fingerprint scanner.

    Nothing about facial recognition makes the FPS "obsolete".

    I quite enjoy being able to unlock my phone without looking at it as there are quite a few situations where its nice or necessary.

    I think they should relocate it. Not get rid of it. I like the way the FPS is implemented into the power button on the Razer phone.

    my take on fingerprint sensor is I wouldn't care if they get rid of it ...I use the iris scanner no issues and I have the iphone x and use it to open banking apps no problems. So once your in the phone I think its useless and face id doing what's its supposed to..

    IMO keep it, just move it to a more centered position.

    Coming from a Nexus 6P, I HATED the placement, but as others have said, muscle memory is a weird thing and I adjusted pretty quickly and along with a thin case I have which has a slight ridge around the FPS, it's become really easy.

    I had the face recognition active, but I hated when I just wanted to look at my lock screen to maybe swipe or delete some emails without getting into the phone and it popped right passed the lock screen, so now I just use the FPS and I'm happy with it.

    All that said, I do actually think it should be centered like the Pixels...

    Apple fan boy? I haven't owned an apple device in years. I could easily adjust to not having a FPS. I like having it and I like the position better than on the front. Hated it on the bottom if the screen. Just getting some opinions, don't get so butthurt, you might melt.

    I guess if the phones I used had horrible locations like the S8 and Note 8 my attitude would be different, but I would not be pleased if they all dropped the FPS.

    I was at the market last night to pick up some stuff, they take Android Pay. As they rang up my stuff, I reached into my pocket to get my Pixel XL. By the time I get the phone out of my pocket, it was already unlocked and a tap on the POS scanner later, it was back in my pocket without any fuss.

    Yes, the inconvenience of lifting the phone up to my face would be a first world problem, but... how is it progress if it complicates the interaction?

    Lame.

    No like the FPS. I don't want to use iris or face scanner from Samsung since theirs is so easily fooled and not secure.
