Anonymous, 02 Apr 2017Seems like the fingerprint scanner is on the wrong side of the camera. There are more right ha... moreSony side mounted fingerprint never get that right hand/left hand complaint. As long as you have a hand and one good finger.
Nick, 03 Apr 2017Don't waste your time, forget samsung and don't argue, if you like ios go for iphone 7 and 7pl... moreSONY? :D What drugs are you using, they are non factors like for 2 years now? Samsung, Apple and now Google joined the team that offer a real premium phones. There is always a cheaper one with close hardware and functionality but it will always be cheap.
Just get the Xiaomi Mi6 If youre looking for a new flagship phone that can go toe to toe on the specs at almost half the price without the unnecessary gimmicks that are faulty still!
Don't waste your time, forget samsung and don't argue, if you like ios go for iphone 7 and 7plus and if you like android go for sony xzs or premium, be sure that note 8 will be the same bullshit with those nonsense edges and no home key ...
Seems like the fingerprint scanner is on the wrong side of the camera. There are more right handed people than left handed and if right handed people hold the phone in the their left hand while say typing with their right hand then the index finger on the left hand will be the one used to unlock and will naturally position itself on the left side of the camera as viewed from the back when the phone is held with the back facing away.
dro, 02 Apr 2017The s8's display is so good that even its camera can be tricked that it is a real thing.and the Cameras (both which took the picture and the one that scanned it for facial recognition)....only issue is the security System
I just don't understand why the finger scanner is not under the camera. The user will always put his finger on the camera first. The phone is almost perfect, except the finger print location, it's just stupid there.

Not a fair critiqueGirlfriend thief, boyfriend thief, classmate thief, workmate thief, family member thief, someone who knows you thief, thief robbing your house and sees your photo on mantelpiece thief, everybody (if you're a celebrity) thief lol
I will stick to the password of 14 alphanumeric to unlock the phone. And wipe away the glass screen with the tissue paper or cloth after unlock to clear away traces of finger prints on screen. This is what I call, IMHO, security with own responsibility. It is your phone, your responsibility to secure it wisely. Also change the 14 alphanumeric at regular intervals away from public eyes and cameras.

Hopefully this is just unfinished version of the s8 if not I hope there will be security patch update. This it's good I will try this when I get my s8 🤷‍♂️ .having said that no new phones are perfect to start with let's be clear on that .that go's for Apple to
The phone is not to blame, Android really needs some polishing with it. Microsoft has done better indeed. But you've got to understand they're just alternatives to PIN unlock, they were never meant to be bullet-proof. Most stand alone scanners can be fooled with a "dead" silicone-made finger so...
I thought that was supposed to be A new and great phone, that is smarter... I think they should try harder to fix that issue. That's bad security to me.
XBR, 01 Apr 2017wait so this face unlock not the iris scanner? you trying to fool everyone gsm..Apparently the iris scanner can be fooled too which really shouldn't be possible if it's using real IR. It could also use a system where if IR fails it goes to backup with photo.
Iris scan is likely the most secure one available for phones. But if Microsoft could get their realsense tech from windows hello small enough for a phone that would be even more secure. Independent tests showed that even identical twins couldn't beat it.
I don't see how Samsung would add this feature to galaxy S8 when they already have other security features. Samsung did say that the facial recognition system is not the most secure system, but it rather seems like a ludicrous and suspicious attempt made by Samsung.
