It's all about iris scanner and 3d face Unlo... moreApple and Samsung actually had plan to implement the fingerprint scanner underneath the display but they failed. Now for Samsung, they just add the fingerprint scanner at the back of note 8. For Apple, they get rid of the fingerprint scanner and saying 3D face scanning is a better approach, let us all forget about fingerprint scanning.. marketing speech.
However, give Apple another year, I believe they will add the fingerprint scanner back in iPhone XI, and it will be sitting underneath the display. Also the notch will be gone in next version so a true full screen iPhone will be delivered.
Even though 3D face ID scanning may be a more secure approach, it's true that fingerprint scanning is a quicker and more convenient way to unlock the phone. Having the scanner underneath the display meaning you just have to touch the display to unlock the phone - a very user friendly approach.
I love being able to take notes in the dark with the S pen without turning on the screen. There are reviews rating the battery life as average. I couldn't disagree more. I have used a lot of phones and the battery life in the Note 8 is the longest I've ever seen in a smartphone.
Samsung coming with built in Stereo sound. Yes Samsung. Apparentely the fingerprint reader will be built into the on off button on the side and an even better 2 camera anti glare glass. On the S9. Even less bezel then the S8.

Anonymous, 10 Nov 2017Fingerprint scanner is more secure than iris scanner and 3d face Unlock. Wrong! We already seen people replicate fingerprints. Never iris scans. Find one video who cheated iris scanner. I dare you!
Face Unlock can be cheated with identical twins. Never iris! You have to replicate both eyes!

All I can say is that after a month it started to recognize them rven through sunglasses. Don't knoe if it' self learning or adapting, or is this a bug. But only in normal light or dark. In very bright light/sun it doesn't work
The camera is most excellent. F/1.7 aperture works really good at night.

I agree the fingerprint reader position is not intuitive, but it works for me every time, as does face unlock. But where I disagree is build quality, to me it is excellent. Yes, glass so fragile (cased mine) but it is little different from an iPhone and judging by the number of cracked screen iPhones I see, Apple are milking students by using inferior glass. I dropped my Note5 four times (new jogging trousers, forgot pack of zipped pocket!) and screen survived the shock. I assume the 8 is even tougher.
