    Not really. I got used to the 8+ placement essily. I got small hands and it never bothered me one bit.

    As a left-handed person, it makes much more sense for it to be in the new location.

    I tested it out in store - though I did have limited testing abilities since it was tethered with a line to the display table. I don't mind it at all in the center - will just take some finger placement retraining as I've been used to the fingerprint off to the side since the S8+

    Ideally speaking, I would like the camera and fingerprint module not be close to each other but definitely a welcome change in position compared to previous phones.

    It's not a big deal to me. I am ok with current placement. I won't upgrade because of that

    Not having a serious problem with it but I have to carefully reach for it everytime as it is too close to the camera. Can't compare it to the s8 cuz I upgraded from a S7 edge where the fingerprint was embedded in the home button. Would've been amazing and more comfortable if the s9 plus was separated like on other devices like oneplus or pixel.

    The question kind of says it all... are you happy with the new location of the fingerprint sensor on the S9? Or are you going to reserve judgement until you can get your hands on one to test?
    Feels okay. I have big hands though and didn't have an issue with the note 8 or s8+

    having now used the 9+ it is better for sure but still not great.

    I wonder who at Samsung thinks having it so close to the camera is a good idea?

    It shouldn't have happened in the first place.

    Obviously, the S9+ is an improvement.

    Why can't Samsung seperate the FPS away from the camera like what Google, LG, OnePlus does?

    The only reason I can think of on the S9 is better durability. Poking glass with multiple holes would make it more prone to breaking.

    It should’ve been in this spot last year. I don’t know what Samsung was thinking by putting it next to the camera.
    Was wondering this and I can only conclude a couple things from that.
    -Samsung wanted to have something that most wanted changed done to the S9 series since most of the S9 is a HW upgrade...
    -The designers had that option only based on the fps shape the thickness of the device/wireless charging coil/camera sensor size.
    -Samsung wanted to give lefty's some love?

    Yes, feels more natural below the camera than beside it

    it was a good move but I hope, more importantly, they fixed the Facial recog as well as improved retina scanning. facial doesn't work at all and retina is great about 1/3 of the time; other times I'm left staring.

    It is much better than the S8 and the Note 8 but I use the face regonition that works realy good on the S9+.

    No. I didn't get why people hated s8 location. I never smeared camera lens after few days of getting used to.
    If I hold a phone and reach my index finger, the sensor is exactly there. Now with S9, I have to bend my finger to reach the sensor. Now I press the camera lens MUCH more often.

    I'm thinking of returning s9 just because of this annoyance.

    Much better than my S8+ for sure.

    Its much easier for me since I have a case that separates camera from fingerprint scanner

    It's better now but still prefer the fingerprint sensor to be away from the cameras. I like the cameras to be on the top corners and fingerprint in the middle. In this way you never smudge the cameras when trying to find the fingerprint sensor.
