    I can get that they needed to relocated the fingerprint sensor.. but what's with putting it so close to the camera lens?

    I don't think it'll be as bad as you expect. I use my S6's sensor a lot to monitor my pulse for health reasons, and even when I used it the first time I didn't touch the lens - never have since, either. It becomes a very fast move almost immediately, and you'll slide your finger towards the spot anyway. With the camera having such a large bump, you'll stop automatically long before you're at risk of touching the lens.

    I also had the G4, which had its "screen on" switch right next to the lens. Even though that one had no camera bump, I still didn't hit it accidentally.

    The main interest around the S8 will be people seeing if they can make it blow up. Got to love the Irony of all those Samsung adverts on TV right now, you know that just after it ends there's a huge explosion and the lab goes up in smoke.!! Aside from that it's obviously a highlight of the Android year.

    But 2017 phone news will centre around Apple. Will they deliver something new (as widely anticipated) or massively disappoint everyone with a "7s". Either way it's going to dominate the phone news all year.
