I need to rise my finger to reach the back fps. Back fps would probably be ok on phones below 5". And yes, it's annoying to have to pick up the phone every single time you want to use it. Try to ask any supporter on how they use their phones, and they will say it's laying on the table or whatever, front up. Even the people using both thumbs to type with, aren't near the back fps. So the question is, how tf do you hold your phone?

Under screen finger scanning is a absolute waste of time.

Samsung focus on MILT STD 810 G
We all need more robust phones... Yet good looking ones.

How do you hold your phone? By the ends with the tips of your fingers so you can stare at the keypad while on a call? Most people hold it with one hand and guess what? Your finger is right where the FP sensor is.

Instead of hating Samsung, Apple, LG, Sony, and whatever company, I want them to be motivated.
Criticism can be done in a very nice manner with matured language.
That Imperator N. is a perfect example of why our world hasn't seen any amazing technological advancement for the past 5 years.

The flagship phone that they will announce at IFA will be the Premium or Pro version of the XZ2 with 4K HDR display. I just don't know what are they up now with the next Premium, but I'm sure it will be dope. I can't wait to see a bezel less XZ Premium.

On the other hand, the XZ3 will be announced next year, so that the XZ2 will be one year old at that time already.

Good. Here are the flaws with the whole 'Touch ID' system. 1. Won't work with gloves. 2. Won't work if you get glue on your fingers when repairing your r/c aircraft or are suffering burns to your finger(s). 3. Requires finger gymnastics some of the time. The eye recognition system on my Note8 (no, it's not Note 8) is pretty reliable and of course hands free, so works when I'm wearing gloves or covered in glue. I hope phone makers will focus on iPhone X type eye recognition so the process is seamless and reliable.
