For my experience s8 edge is far better than s7 edge in terms of accidental pressure. My bro loves it as he hated s7 edge.

Still sent find s8 plus to myself. There is one orchid grey which I am not sure if the color is female or not.

Got my s8 plus and the struggle is real. Finger print sensor is not working properly anyway.

Face recognition isame. Not working. Brothers s8 has no issues but the problem is my face I guess. I am ugly and phone hates it.

Iris scan works but sometimes missesthe target.

What a bullsht way of unlocking a phone for me. Crap.

I'll be skipping the S8, I went from the S4 to my current S7 Edge & this phone does everything I need it to & more. Not sure I'm a fan of ditching the physical home button, plus I like the fingerprint scanner where it is on my s7, not to keen on where they've placed it on the S8.

Aren't you missing a load of swipe right modes?

Tried it on my S7 flat and it broke a lot of functions

EDIT - Ah the flashable zip? I just tried the APK, didn't work very well

Regarding unlocking the phone:
Iris - Works best (even with glasses) but obviously not if it's very dark
Face - Is by far the quickest but also not very secure and requires special lightning conditions
Finger - Very hard to miss on a bare phone but if you have it in a case (which has edges) then it works really well

Battery is freakin' awesome and can easily do 1 day or almost 2 between charges.

I also love the design and thing that Nougat works pretty well once you get used to it.

This one is only for the S7/Edge running Nougat, not sure if it has been ported for other devices running LP, you'd need to check XDA forums for whichever phone yours is?

In fact I think this one is not even compatible with Nougat S7 stock ROM, it says you need to be running a certain custom ROM called Superman

You can find different Camera APKs for different devices on apkmirror.com though, worst that would happen would be you'd need to uninstall that app if it didn't work, but flashing the wrong zip for the wrong device can brick

Nice to hear, what about cases for the phone to protect it, all that glass is just asking for some nasty cracks.

Well I broke and ordered one and should arrive tomorrow, my wife gets my trusty old S5, hope mine doesn't come with that reddish tint I've been reading about? That would annoy me considering the price of the thing.

I have S7 edge, but im running a hybrid s7/s8 nougat rom.
so basicly all the S8 stuff on s7 edge. Its not perfect though some things crash and are fine in other roms. and other things crash there again.
But we will get there eventually.

Im actually waiting for the Batman rom which will be released next month somewhere.
Ive flash almost every day to try new roms LOL Im addicted! Most normal S7 roms are just fine.

Its because you need to replace that in system/priv-app/samsungcamera6.
you cant install it.
It also needs more files of the framework to get it to run.

https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=529152257862721615
Before flashing with twrp, delete data and cache of camera app, otherwise it fc
Be patient, boot will take 10to 15 minutes is normal ***128515;

what should i be missing on swiping right ?

Thanks, I'm not rooted or TWRP, staying stock atm so that's why I was only trying APKs

The ones I tried had all the modes such as Pro, Panorama, Selective focus etc either bunched up together overlapping each other and unusable, or half of the modes weren't there

Tried a few different camera versions and always had to return to factory version due to one problem or another

If the image quality is indeed better with this flashable zip of the S8 camera, that would temp me to void warranty, I use the camera a lot

Can you post a couple of shots using the new S8 camera app some time?

Nice, yea it's done well not completely over or under exposing everything with the direct shot of the sun

I always shoot in 12MP 4:3 and then crop myself to try and maintain as much MP as possible, usually in Pro mode with RAW enabled unless they're just quick snaps of the dogs or something, now and then I get a stunning photo and there's been times I'd wished I had the RAW copy of it to edit, so generally always do RAW now

Had some nice night shots with 10 second Long Exposure on a tripod too

Yeah I know that but in real life usage. Smaller screen size 3000 mah vs bigger screen 3500 mah. My s8 plus is fine in battery. Bro saying s8 is not good but his usage and brightness is more than mine.

I love the feeling of s8 in the hand. Easy to handle. I regret this s8 plus a bit.

I accept each day I am getting used to it just unlocking phone is pain. Face and iris scans are not working all time. S8 plus finger scan place is hard for reach with single hand. That's my biggest struggle.

Yea the fingerprint reader location is stupid IMO, people saying Sammy did it on purpose to push people into using other authentication methods such as Iris

I didn't see enough of a jump in hardware to justify upgrading from the S7 yet, S8 looks like a very nice device, but more of an upgrade for someone with a much older S series IMO
