    Can the Galaxy s8 be unlocked from the front if the screen like all past galaxies? Or do you have to use the side button? With the physical key gone, wondering if it's still possible.

    If you long press the part of the screen where the home button is normally located, it will turn the screen on apparently.

    Really? that would only be if you use the iris scanner i would have thought. If you don't then you have to use the fingerprint scanner on the back to unlock.

    Yeah, if you turn the screen on that way, it must use face unlock/iris scanning. It would be pretty insecure otherwise.

    That would depend on how it was raised don't you? It would likely need a Therapist to dig deep into it's past in order to bring out underlying issues such as abuse, being bullied, inferiority complex and so on. :thinking: :D
