Such a pretty phone!

Except for the weird placement of the finger print scanner ( should have been at least below the camera ) and lack of stereo speaker ( should have at least re positioned the current one)..I love the phone!

One editor wont buy a Galaxy, another wont buy a Pixel and probably another wont buy an iPhone.

Another excellent samsung feature, you know other than the most f**ked up place to put the finger print scanner.

Very well thought out and supremely well implemented feature that will not compromise security. Well done, samsung. I'm very Proud of you.

May I ask what is this fascination people have with Stereo Speakers on a phone? I can never understand it. They seem to take up more space and not really bring any major benefit. Why not just have one large loud speaker that is well placed?

Yep, totally agree on the Fingerprint Scanner, it should be at the front, IMO, not anywhere else. I have tried phones like the LG V20 and Xperia XZ, one has it at the back and the other has it on the side, both are poorly placed, why on earth would you put such a crucial part of accessing the device anywhere else but the front? It makes no sense at all.

Samsung must hurry up with their Fingerprint Scanner tech for under the Display and not ever do this again.

As I said in the other thread I have the finger print reader in the back of my phone and so I don't see what the big deal is . Seemed odd at the start yes but once you get used to it is more than fine . I would find it odd to have it embedded in the screen for those instances when the screen is off I.e. How would you know where to place your finger ?

Stereo speaker is nice if you use speakers I.e playing music , a tv show . I had it on nexus 6 and it made a difference. If you don't use the speaker a lot then you won't really need it

An Always On Symbol of a Fingerprint in the area where the display supports it.

You could end up having a fingerprint scanner in the dead center of the Display, even more convenient.

Much like how Always On Display (AOD) works in the S7 now, this symbol will be on when the phone is out of your pocket and off when in your pocket. Simple.

Do the loudspeakers on those phones provide enough bass for that? I use a large Bluetooth loudspeaker if I watching anything​ like series if I'm not using headphones.

An always display on would then use more battery , plus I am aldo wondering how would a screen protector affect the screen reader. My point is no finger print reader positioning is perfect

Of course through speakers it sounds better but again this would use more battery and plus you have to have the speakers available everywhere .point is if you want to use phone speakers it us better to have stereo speakers

I doubt it would take that much battery, as it is, my S7 Edge lasts about the same with or without AOD on, and seeing as we are moving towards more Smartphones having AOD I think this would be a feature that is carefully implemented, this could be the exact reason they have had to delay it, so as to get it as efficient and reliable as possible.

I'll have to take your word for it.... Although I do own an iPad Air 2 with Stereo Speakers that give real bass and I still find them inadequate for anything other than watching a quick video or previewing something, anything more I will either plug in my headphones or Connect to the Bluetooth loudspeaker.
