(stopwatch wise: it's 0.18s VS 4.19s an incremental decrease of 97% of time consumed)

I am an S8 owner. and smudging the camera NEVER happend to me. experience the phone before you have an opinion.
Sonu4678, 28 Jun 2017Personally, i was lucky to play with S8 in store which is obviously too expensive for me. I kn... moreAs an S8 owner. I agree with you. True that the fingerprint sensor is awkward in location. but once used to the location. it's like magic.

Samsung th... moreI own the galaxy S8 (Standard. 5.8) and Although I DO have pretty long and slender fingers ( my index is slightly over 3.3inches) I do find it easy to open on a standard sized S8. but EXTREMELY difficult on the plus version. and insanely hard (Assuming size) on Note8.
designtrovert, 28 Jun 2017Am I the only one who thinks the design looks ugly? like duh!I agree with you here. the front looks gorgeous but the back is hideous!
NO in-Screen Fingerprint Scanner (they need to removed this feature so they will have SO CALLED new innovation/features for S9) ahahhaha
3300mah battery (wow!!! same processor of s8 and s8+ with additional features of dual cam and SPen.. GOOD LUCK BATTERY)
im not buying any of the 8 series galaxy due to the uncomfortable, unergonomic, unintuitive finger print sensor placement. #fingersensorgate
Probably true bcs evan blass said that the heart rate scanner sits between the cameras and the fingerprint and that the cameras are lined horizontally
Sami are you setting us up to be let down?
Not 6.4 inch screen... If s8+is 6.2 a 6.3 inch screen is too small a difference.
No MILT 810G
Finger print scanner at the back humm
3300 mAh battery..
Not looking like top of line specifications.
Hopefully the battery actually isn't 3300mAh. I don't care how optimized or how efficient the processor is, more capacity is better (at least for Samsung phones).
FreezeGame, 28 Jun 2017No problem on Galaxy S8+ (6.2 inch display):
And this was t... moreThat's cute. 10 hours SOT.
That includes the Always Screen On? Yeah, that's 10 hours. Usually people are out of the house more than 14 hours. You really will need to plug in before going home.
The reality is, I only come close to 7-8 hours SOT when using the S7 Edge and Note7. This is with Youtube, consuming over 1GB over wifi. The SOT will be less if you are to use LTE. Realistically with LTE, up to 6 hours SOT. These are all the more efficient Exynos variants. Snapdragon is lower SOT - 5 hours SOT.
And the 10% reduction of the battery will not help for a bigger screen size. The power-saving efficiency of the newer processor will not help if you need the same energy to power up LTE, screen, and you ARE ACTUALLY using the device. NOT Always On Screen display.
With Samsung pursue to remove bezels.
Samsung think everyone has long fingers..
Samsung think everyone do not need a case..
This will be a big fail.. Most people need 2 hands to use the fingerprint scanner now.
I bet people will just not use it all together.
This Design look so Bad for me.
Very disappointing 😢
I prefer the design before which Camera is vertical and Fingerprint below the camera is the perfect position for the fingerprint.
If this is final design for Note 8. I Will keep with my Galaxy S7 Edge or Get Note7R 🤔.
3300mAh battery is too less practically for 6.3 inch device... You cannot give the reason for previous failure for this... To overcome the previous mistakes is called as successful engineering rather than playing safe with the less...

And this was taken the next morning, after the previous day's use, including working 10 hrs on 3rd shift, where I keep the screen on constantly for messaging, music, etc.
Battery life is amazing!
