Android Central Question

New S9 here, tying to get used to it. Without a home button or bezel how do you tell which way is up and where the home button is to unlock it? I can barely see the ear slot, but that doesn't help much in the dark or pulling it out of my pocket.

Have you tried keeping the home button displayed at all times with Always On Display? Only way to do that easily if you want a visual way and can't see the speaker/front camera. Otherwise is to touch the back and figure out where the camera is, which is probably easy to do if your problem is when taking it out of your pocket. Or feel the buttons on the side: power should be on the right, volume/Bixby should be on the left.
