    The screen has a red tint.  Bigger concern, the security sensor is on the back and next to the rear snapper.  Fingerprints are obscuring the lens.  The iris/facial recognition feature on the S8 doesn't appear reliable.
    The S8 may be the phone to beat this year, but it's problems come after the Galaxy Note 7 mess.  Come on Samsung.

    While Samson tries to fix it's new phone, Apple is rethinking the Mac Pro and planning anew Mac.
    The Mac should come out this year.  The "rethought" Mac Pro won't hit stores until next year.
