That's not right imo. We can just use google voice commands to unlock phones when we can't reach them anyway (or am I outdated, because I;ve nvr used a phone with FPS)
At least they're getting rid of the home button. That button is awful, and the rest of the capacitive buttons on other smartphones are awful as well. On-screen buttons for the win!

Holy crap! Why is it too big? My palms are too small, the biggest one I can hold is 5.2 inches. I truly hate this :'(
'Plus' model to feature 'dual camera', no home button... sounds familiar?
Fingerprint reader on the back?? Doesn't seem like a very Samsung thing to do.
I hate the curved edges on the screen. Curved back, yes, for comfort. Its a cheat on screen size as it isnt usable. If they ditched earbud jack, Im done with Samsung

But with S8, you have to hold it (and find the reader on the back with your finger) - to unlock - quite inconvenient, especially if you want to unlock your phone while driving.
So... very sad :(
Shut da f up and take my money! 6.2" display size! Finally! A worthy flaship with over 6" display!!! This device as well as the 5.7" variant going to sell like bread!
Anonymous, 13 Jan 2017fingerprint on back no way!That's the better position for a fingerprint sensor. Huawei is correct.
why alienate their loyal consumers by gimping the regular s8 with a single camra set up? they are not winning android users over by copying apple.
Copying Apple eh ? Lolz . Where are your foldable youm displays ? Lazy dev team I guess .
Anonymous, 13 Jan 2017I am using the S7 Non edge version. So no upgrade for me in 2017 from Samsung.Do you really need to tell the whole world you not upgrading? No upgrade for you then. No one forcing you to upgrade. Just like no one forcing me to upgrade my tv, fridge, microwave, washing machine or vacuumm cleaner. Do I really need to tell the whole world Im not upgrading any of that?
It is nice to see them finally get rid of those stupid physical buttons and place on the finger sensor in its correct position (the back).
