TheLostWanderer, 10 Dec 2017Yep, iris scanner IS crappy, and iPhone X face ID too... I pretty much hate all "features" lik... moreAgree with you regarding the Iris scanner on the S8's ..... I just don't get on with it. The faceID on the IPhone X, while being clever, and iPhone must be congratulated for their obsessive pursuit to advance technology as should Samsung (although they do get rewarded handsomely but that's an entirely different subject)
I quite like the fingerprint scanner on the S8's. I use a case (a folio case for protection...... (OMG don't get me started on the durability of flagships....that's a whole different debate) .... Yeah, I quite like the fingerprint scanner where it is, there's a cut out at the back and my finger naturally goes there as I take the phone from my pocket. I can genuinly have phone locked quicker than having scanner on the front......I feel that (only my opinion) the whole negative hype surrounding it's position is not representative of true opinion out there.....it's over blown.. That said, I have no doubts that some people just don't like the scanner placed on the back. I get that. That's cool.
I would rather have a scanner on the phone than not.....and I like the bez-less designs and the Manufacturers are at this moment in time are not able to put a figerprint scanner under the screen. So I think it's a great compromise to have it on the back, rather than not having it at all.
The IPhone X doesn't even give you that option, and not only do you not have the fingerprint option, Apple have cut out a bit of the viewing area ( to me one of the, if not the most important thing) Yeah, they have cut out a piece of the screen. Now it might look distinctive and great for marketing as it stands out in the crowd ...yeah you will certainly notice it. ......but for me , it's a deal breaker...... big NO, NO. ...not good!! Not good at all and highlight to me that Apple had to make big decision, and I genuinly dont think they got those decisions right.
In Apples defence, they were under great pressure because of the 10th anniversary.... and this is the result.
Duel, 09 Dec 2017Battery life with this is very good"Battery life with this is very good"
How much Screen on Time are you getting? What do you mainly use the phone for? (Average if you can?) How good is the signal?.(average if you can e.g bars, 4g)
Pleased for you if you are happy with the battery :) and I'm not here to argue, hate all the fanboy stuff, just want to deal with facts :)
To borrow a line ... "I come in peace"
Ok, you said battery is 'very good'. Have you come to that conclusion based on your experience with a wide range of current phones/reviews .... what?
Would you say the battery competes with its flagship rivals?

Really fast and fluid phone, which is to be expected at this price range, but still, the notch is in some people's opinion ugly. But people can always find something wrong with any product. Here it's the notch, with iPhone 8 it's - "it looks like iPhone 7"... with Galaxy S8 it's "the fingerprint scanner is back". Apple made a great product and that's it.
I own S8, and don't use either iris scanner, or face ID or fingerprint scanner, I go with password or pattern, I would do the same with iPhone X... in my opinion all the features from above, except fingerprint scanner - are just dumb. But hey, some people might like them.
ud, 07 Dec 2017go for a LED smart TVYeah a 4K tv, can probably find a high end one for half the price of this phone
I like apple but what preventing me from spending so much money for this phone is the "battery". What would you do with a nice phone that would just last for half a day. I'm a heavy user....
seriously....spending so much for this phone and they are still using usb 2.0?
are you kidding me apple that this is the best phone exist?
Anonymous, 07 Dec 2017Accurate. Why do people like to better when is not? Pretand to yourself, but in denying the truth..FYI and @Duel
It's a fact. You can make the Iris scanner on the S8 quicker than was shown in the video.
Anonymous, 07 Dec 2017Accurate. Why do people like to better when is not? Pretand to yourself, but in denying the truth..It's hard to find the truth,as we can all find videos from random people on youtube and tests to support our views (confirmation bias) All that matters at the end of the day is that you are me are happy with the smartphone we have.
Iels2003, 07 Dec 2017I have strange problem: many people complain that donÂ’t hear me clear during phone. I not mov... moreYour English is fine :)
I had a quick look to see if anyone else was experiencing the same issue and indeed a number of people are having exactly the same issue as you (see below) Obviously this does not mean that all IPhone X's have the same problem and looks like it is affecting a limited number of phones.
My advise would be to take it back as soon as possible, the quicker you do this the better. Check out the consumer rights in your country as they may say that they will have to send it away to be fixed BUT you may actually have the option to demand a replacement there and then or your money back.
People should be able to hear you.

I have strange problem: many people complain that donÂ’t hear me clear during phone. I not moving and phone is in the same position and they say : stop to move and speck in the phone. I tried same sim with other phone and itÂ’s ok.
Sorry for my English

"Best smartphone i ever had. Faceid is fast and the screen... omg the screen!!!!! Perfect! Camera is almost real professional!!!"
Good luck to him/her ....but I find you such a hypocrite as you are one if the biggest trolls on here and intentionally use provocative language to wind people up e.g "crappy" you are just as bad as all the people you report for trolling.
This place has just becoming a fanboy paradise with no real conversation and you don't help.
Anonymous, 07 Dec 2017Actually watch this video until the bitter end. Iris scanner can be made quicker then face id ... moreI don't think he really care, especially when your video shows how crappy iris scanner is in use.
While you try to locate your eyes and bring the phone closer, he have unlocked his phone a long time ago :D

[deleted post]Tell me, which other modern Android (or even Windows) phone in the same price range uses stainless steel?
Only maker I can think of is Vertu, but those phones cost way more. Titanium on the Essential Phone is infamous for scratching issues, alongside other problems like no waterproofing and pre-order customers getting their data leaked.
[deleted post]Not exactly, as I'm sure you know Android and I.O.S are two completely different operating systems. That's the bit people tend to ignore when they get all fanboy on both sides and start claiming their preferred device is the best.
Apple competes against itself really, whereas there are many different manufacturers that use Android as their platform.
Now you could argue that Android users have greater flexibility and choice and I would be right behind you, but just spouting out things like you have done makes no real sense to me and comes across as yet just another one of those fanboy posts I have to trawl through.
