Confirmed: OnePlus 5 will feature a Snapdragon 835 processor and front fingerprint scanner

In recent years, fingerprint scanners have become almost ubiquitous when it comes to high-end (and even mid-end, or more modest) smartphones. 

While some handsets – like the iPhone 7 or HTC U11 – feature fingerprint scanners on the front, there’s a large number of important phones that have their scanners on the back – Samsung Galaxy S8, Google Pixel, LG G6, and so on.

Google's CBO Schindler blames the media for putting YouTube's video content issue on the front page

In the U.S., the media is getting beat up. Even Google is accusing the press of making a mountain out of a molehill.
