[Poll] Galaxy A8 (2018) owners: How do you like the fingerprint sensor placement?
As we said in our Galaxy A8 (2018) and Galaxy A8+ review, the fingerprint sensor is easier to use on Samsung’s latest mid-range phones compared to the company’s 2017 flagships, but it’s still not in the ideal location. That’s especially true on the 6-inch Galaxy A8+; the sensor is housed in the same cutout as the rear camera, so there is some amount of hand movement involved between tapping the sensor and using the phone.
Your take on the Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+’ fingerprint sensor?
Again, it’s not as bad as it was on the Galaxy S8 or Note 8 (although many thought the sensor’s placement wasn’t an issue on those devices, either). Since the sensor is placed below the camera, chances of the user smudging the camera lens are also fewer than they are on the aforementioned flagships. Our overall experience of using the A8 and A8+’ fingerprint sensor was a positive one, and we’re interested to know how you feel about the placement of the sensor on your Galaxy A8 or A8+.
We’ve created a poll, which will help other SamMobile readers know what to expect from the fingerprint sensor on these devices should they decide to buy one, in addition to telling us how your experience compares to ours. In fact, the idea for the poll came to us from SamMobile member PRODBYECHELON asking A8 and A8+ owners whether they touch the camera by mistake while using the fingerprint sensor.
So go ahead and vote, and also let us know your thoughts in the comments section!
