    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?

    I've never liked the S8 placement and likely never will. I'll wait and see with the S9...
    I'm keen on the active variant but an wondering if they do that for this region (Australia) with the exynos chipset...

    The best placement is on the front. Until they put it there again like on the S7, I will not like it.

    Not really, me personally I liked having it where it is on the Note 8.

    honestly, not really. after hating on it so much before, I got used to it. now I have to get used too it again and it's just as proximal to the camera lens, so fingerprints will still be a problem.

    Yes.

    I never had issue with the Note8's position (I have a stupidly long index finger), but the S9 did it much better.

    Simply put, it's better for those of all hand sizes

    Don't like it on the back of the phone. Prefer it on the front like the GS7.

    it is better for sure but for me still looks a little high and too close to the camera. Can still see the camera lens getting smudged

    It should’ve been in this spot last year. I don’t know what Samsung was thinking by putting it next to the camera.

    It's better but still not good needs to be completely separate from camera

    I got used to the position on the 7edge front center , s8+, note 8 back to the side. I really liked the central position on the v20, nexus 6p's.

    I've adjusted easily to the S8 fingerprint sensor. I actually prefer it over the front one on my old S7. it works well in my dash holder and my thumbs are always callused so they never worked well for me

    Never had an issue with the S8+ placement but I have big hands. I can see why some had issues with it.

    Either way the new placement seems more ideal and inline with other phones.

    I really don't mind either way, but what I don't like is that the flash is placed like that. Looks weird. Would have been better if they placed it between the camera and the FPS.

    It's kind of a strange location but I'd have to reserve judgement for when actually testing it out.

    I think I'll like it. But I'm not sure how this will work for swiping the fingerprint sensor to get the notification panel. That was a nifty feature which I hope they don't take away!

    I still prefer the way Sony did it on Z5 series. It was part of the power button on the side. But I'd prefer front sensor vs rear with the caveat that I don't like physical home buttons as with older galaxy phones. it'll be really nice when in screen versions come out. But the new placement on the s9 will probably be better. Not that I care that much since I use my smart watch as a trusted device so I rarely need to use it.

    I personally don't care. I can adapt. I find the one on my S8+ easy to use. It's just as easy as the one on my Pixel 2 XL for me to reach. Of course, I don't have small hands.
