    I'm really not a fan of the huge curved screens. My 5.5 inch S7 edge is already too big!

    It looks a complete nightmare to hold (certainly impossible one-handed) and the fingerprint sensor is in possibly the stupidest possible location, right next to the camera lens.

    I was thinking S8 this time around but the rumours started, but I'm either going LG or sticking with my Nexus 6P if either of those are true.

    Thank you samsmung, the nonsense of removing 3.5mm jacks is delayed for at least one more year.

    They shouldn't be much bigger than the S7 as the screen is bigger due to smaller bezels.

    I'll wait to try the fingerprint reader - used a Nexus for a while with one on the rear, and it seems to read more reliably than the one on my s6 edge, and actually be in a usable place.

    The support pages should be easy

    STOP, DROP AND ROLL"

    Job done.

    The smaller bezels is the reason that it will be difficult to hold, and one-handed the palm will constantly give false registers, surely.

    As for the fingerprint reader, I much prefer a rear reader, as on my 6P, as the finger naturally rests near it in a pocket. The issue is that it's right next to the camera lens, which means the camera will be regularly smeared in the oils from fingers.

    Yes please! I'm also glad to see that they have kept the 3.5 mm plug (we have enough signals passing through our bodies already) and an external SD card.
