I'd take you more seriously if your grammar wasn't that of a 2 year old.

The game is now to compete, to outdo, so Samsung one upped.

Samsung is engaged in a battle with Apple, while neither a fingerprint scanner nor eye scanner is desired by consumers. Most people do not live in Mission Impossible, all the current unlockinh methods are plenty enough for most consumers. All people want is phones with beautiful design, lag-free performance, decent camera and good battery. This technology is useless, in fact it endangers the phone owner, some people might lose a finger or an eye if they become a victim of a crazy mugger. No phone with fingerprint scanner, eye scanner, saliva or poop analyzer will win over a better looking phone without these gimmicks.

Another gimmicky feature just like smart scroll which isn't practicable. I see Samsung like 2 invest money on artificial and non practicable features n then market it with tons of money 2 confuse those who don't know better. How many S4 users use those features n gestures, they r not practicable. Y would I need 2 look @ d fone 4 seconds 4 d sensor 2 pick my eye/retina or face? Am no Apple fan but the Finger print scanner makes a whole lot of sense, n no one needs 2 know how u Phone gets unlocked cause as u place ur finger it scans n unlocks. What if ur in a dark room, how will this sensor work ie the eye sensor? Very impracticable n a simple gimmick 2 deceive n market. Water proofing incredible innovation cause it saves ur phone from damage plus d fact u can take images and record video under water

They will work on anything to create hype.
Instead if adding these useless features..they should
1. improve touchwiz and the build quality of the product.
2. Improve battery life - some innovation is needed in this area.
3. Improve the design of the mobile.


and yet they will just continue this way adding things not used by 80% of the users.

Hope they'll put some god damn metal in their phone bodies this time, 'cause I'm buying the Z1 - eye scanning or not!
