I dont really care. I've had 3 phones with fingerprint scanners and although I used them often in the past, I just stopped ever since I got a fitness tracker and used it as a smart unlock device, which works very well (If I'm 5 feet away from the device, it will ask for a passcode). The only thing that will be my deciding factor is how slim the bezels are, and how curved the screen is. I would prefer the corners to be less curvy, and the bezels to be even thinner than the S8. I'm also hoping that the Note 7 fiasco doesn't scare Samsung away from increasing the battery capacity, although this is most likely going to be the case. Regardless, I'm very excited for the Note 8.
