    The latest video from MKBHD saying the same thing. The Apple is also have issues with the fingerprint sensor. That they may probably pass on the scanner altogether.

    Not definitive... and with the designs out there without any other placement for the fingerprint scanner I think they're keeping it under wraps. Touch ID is too integrated in iOS to drop something like that.

    Since the under the glass fingerprint sensor has not been perfected yet they probably decided to scrap it and wait also. Vivo phone has the tech but it is slow. Samsung is saying that they had a issue with burn in on the screen. If Apple is using Samsung screens my guess is they may have the same issues as Samsung. The latest Leaks show the sensor gone from the back on the Apple leaks. The only other option is under the glass or gone altogether. We will see.

    We shall see come September... I would think a decision has been made already so bring on more rumors.. I'd rather wait till it's perfected than just to be the first one

    Well that is one thing I will give Apple: if it doesn't work well, it doesn't get released.

    I've been hearing more and more about 3D facial recognition... from my experience so far with this S8 + you still need alternate methods

    I have the note 5 and I love the way the fingerprint scan works on it. never had a problem unless you count the battle I lost with superglue on my fingers. IMO, the back scanner is inconvenient and I feel like the under the screen scan may not get the kinks out. they would have to come up with a way to control screen light and the sun/room light for it to be used properly. everyone who uses it will have different light adjustment.

    because of this, I have actually been looking at other phones. maybe add the v30 to my list of possible phones. there are just so many phones out there that are pretty good and it will be hard to choose when I am ready to get another at the end of the year.
