Welcome to our Consumer Lab page. While you will find many mobile research surveys kicked off by our teams, you will also find polls and discussions created by fellow members.

You're invited to complete any surveys that are still open and by all means create a poll if it relates to general mobile preferences. If your topic only pertains to one product, please create your poll within the respective product forum.

After a period of time Consumer Lab Polls, Surveys & Discussions will be locked. They will still be viewable for historical data.

Galaxy S8 Fingerprint Reader Location

<body><p>With the Galaxy S8 removing the physical buttons on the front and going to on screen buttons, they are shifting the fingerprint reader to the back of the phone, but it looks like it's in an odd place to me.  Do you think this would be a good place for it judging by the screenshots?  I think it should be BELOW the camera.  I could see myself accidently getting fingerprint smudges on my camera lens.</p><p></p><p>If you haven't seen the screenshots, look here:</p><p><a href="http://pocketnow.com/2017/02/01/galaxy-s8-s8-plus-renders-schematics-dimensions-buttons" title="http://pocketnow.com/2017/02/01/galaxy-s8-s8-plus-renders-schematics-dimensions-buttons">http://pocketnow.com/2017/02/01/galaxy-s8-s8-plus-renders-schematics-dimensions-buttons</a> </p></body>

    I read it may have a FPS under the main screen, so maybe it will have 2. Either way I don't care because for now I'm done with Samsung.

    If it is truly moved to the rear and that is the actually placement I think its a bad place for the FPS. Its to close to the camera module and I dont like that its off center

    Well one thing is for sure, even if everyone in the world hates it, Samsung can still sell millions of them.

    No doubt about it they are a marketing GIANT and a household name for way more than just Smartphones.  Build it Samsung and they will be sold.
