Anyone know where the cheapest place is (reputable) to buy an unlocked S8?

Welcome to the club. Iris scanner is sweet and make sure you take your phone underwater and shoot some videos. You'll be amazed!

What cases are you rocking?

I am thinking the x-doria rose wood case
X-doria rose wood defense

Or

Ringke leatheresque Ringke S8

I honestly want something like the Apple leather cases. Clean and simple and don't care a ton about protection wise.

As for the scanners I am still learning. Face scanner was a bust.

I must admit as a new android user post Apple and blackberry it's an awesome phone!

Nice. I'm rocking the Samsung alcantara case and their white silicone case. I prefer the silicone.

I looked online and did not find the solution so I'll ask here. How to I add short cuts and words to the dictionary. I have a dozen or so short words that we use constantly for work. I would like to enter them but can't for the life of me figure out how.

I found short cuts but no add to dictionary

Also is it possible to simplify the emergency SMS feature to simply take a picture when you say trip,e tap the power button but not send it out. Aka I want a quick picture while phone is locked out triple tap and poof picture. Say need some ones plate. Or see a really sexy person running by fast.

Was the Active series ever available in Canada?
They skipped Canada for s6 active and don't think s7 active was in Canada either so s8 active likely won't either. There is the note 8 coming, which could be considered s8 on steroids.

that's what i did when i didn't want my keyboard to keep autocorrecting these short forms (i.e. friends = frds, people = ppl)

go into personal dictionary then choose the language

I don't have those setting Crying Face Could a theme be blocking menus? It's not like I went to town downloading apps or anything.

I found short cuts where I can do abreviations but how do I abbreviate EMT
