Mkm, 20 Jul 2017Yes. At first I thought it was coz of my case. But even without it finger print works like 30 ... moreYou may of tried this but if not its worth trying. Input your fingerprints again and place your finger tip in slightly different positions each time.
I can hand on heart say I have never had an issue with the scanner
Hope this helps.
BabaYaga, 19 Jul 2017I agree with you.samsung is missing the mark on this one. Customers want compact devices as we... moreme too. i always perfer to a 5 inch compact phone with a minimum dimension.. if a 5.8inch display is possible to include in a 148.9 x 68.1 size 5inch also can be worth in minimum. better to keep the ratio of compactness
Anonymous, 18 Jul 2017Has anyone faced issues with the fingerprint sensor positioning?Yes. At first I thought it was coz of my case. But even without it finger print works like 30 of the time.
BabaYaga, 19 Jul 2017I agree with you.samsung is missing the mark on this one. Customers want compact devices as we... moreDo you actually believe what you have said? - " these days people go for bigger devices just to show off" and "decent people want compact"
Is this not a huge generalisation, that says more about you than it does about other people? How can you get into people's minds to determine what motivates others?
Could you provide proof/sources to back up your claims please?

Customers want compact devices as well. Yes these days people go for bigger devices just to show off bud decent people want compact devises. 4.7 to 5. Inc is perfect so samsung you realy need to work on top of the range compact devices
Samsung UI really sucks, designed for baby's and children They should put Google pixel UI on Samsung flagship phones and it will look good like seriously... But..... That curved scren will make it look ugallllyyyy.
I saw s8 in a shop it is bigger than my frikking hands . Not all people are big , musle or fat , some of us are medium , some of us are smaller , why only big people matteres in there days ??
Bixby animation is slower and boring like a boring 2D cartoon video
And new Android O is almost the same to Android nougat except some ttricky animations
Nothing special in Android O !
On the other hand: the rise of ups 11 is fantastic and unique
iPad pro 10.5 is a miracle and I love it even though I am a Android user
ARkit in los11 is intuitive and is game chaanging talent for future
Bye Bye Android and also bye bye frustrating Samsung
I usually takes water resistance in context as my phone keeps getting dropped on various surfaces including water. But there is a big butttt....
Why would someone invest in S8 just for water resistance when it tends to break in just a single drop. :(
Not worth it....
rafagas77, 13 Jul 2017I got this phone about a month ago I HATE IT ! This is a nightmare. The phone doesn't respond ... moreI'm pretty much sure that you got yourself a clone S8. FYI, chinese clones don't have the same camera output and/or the screen responsiveness. I've been using mine since May 8th this year, it works flawlessly. Some devices may have defects, but not all the things you mentioned.
Take care. Ciao...
Ozora, 16 Jul 2017Which one should I take? S8 or s7 edge?whats your reason?S8, if you can afford it. Simply because it has exotic design, great User Experience and being the latest it will receive the updates more than the S7.
But to justify my comment, S7 is no bad phone either. It's just the past experience shows that Samsung phones tend to slow down over years. The reason was simply because they used to put fantastic options over Google (like, split screen, AOD etc), but now that Android natively can do that, the UI doesn't carry as much weight as earlier. But as S7 got the same UI update, you can check it out as well. Believe me, except the exotic looks, you won't miss out much with S7. The camera can capture better low light shots (compared it with my friend's S7), a few extras here and there, but not much. And oh, of you want DeX experience and USB C, you'll not get it on S7. Other than that, S7 will cover you for S8.
Hope that answers your question.
Take care. Ciao...
Anonymous, 17 Jul 2017it seems Samsung is abandon Galaxy S8 because Note 8 coming next monthI disagree. Just today S8 got an update...
no name, 17 Jul 2017i think u r the type of person that what u think is correct then it is correct.... hahahaaha..... moreHow about the bezel less curved screen? You forgot to compare that with any other phone. Oh wait, there isn't any other outside Samsung.
But hey, it doesn't make this phone best. The user experience is the thing that makes it the best, at least that makes two who thinks S8 is the best phone in the market now. You can differ from me, that's why your choice will be different. That is what I always try to make you understand - what is best for me may not be good for you at all. That's why we don't go for the same girl, right?
Anyway, back to your comment. Yes, almost all flagships have IP ratings, fast charging, best of the cameras in the market etc. But I'll name three things, (please note that these are the three things that makes S8 a winner in my book, your idea may differ) which you won't get in ANY phones in the market at present. Correct me if I'm wrong.
1. Bezel less slick design (people like me call it sexy)
2. Edge screen (super useful, those who haven't used one will never understand it. It is as good as iP's 3D touch)
3. Iris Scanner (which made me forgive Samsung for placing the fingerprint scanner in an odd place. And the more you use it, the faster it becomes. Now it blazingly unlocks my phone and I removed my fingerprint data from my phone entirely to increase security)
Take care now. Ciao...
I believe that the new s8 has really new,cool,and unique design. The upgraded specs from the s7 to the s8 are ok, although many people were waiting for 6GB ram, Stronger Glass, 4K resolution and many other upgrades, but it is ok. i liked the s8 in general.
Anonymous, 17 Jul 2017Witch one should I take? S8 or iPhone 7iphone 7
Kohinoor Poultry, 18 Jul 2017Friends is there any 128gb version cause In India some dealers r selling 128gb & saying it... moreWhile there IS a 128 GB model, it also has 6 GB of RAM, and was only sold in South Korea and Hong Kong. Dubai never got a 128 GB model, so those dealers are probably scammers. Don't buy their product.
