This is much more innovative than a fingerprint scanner.

Look at the number of comments here. Such a hot topic to talk about. Haters make the brand popular.

Way to many Apple and Sony cry babies. I'm sure if this is about their favorite product, all you hear is-wow.

It is foolish to think your private information is safe in your mobile. Just look at chat apps. People willingly give vendors access to their contact address book and also in some cases complete access to their email, all of it (LINE for example). What do you think these vendors are doing with your information, sitting on it. Come on, grow up man. The problem with Android, in particular, is that a 10 years old can hack into in (well, you get the message). You misunderstand the risks of finger print and eye scanning if you think for one second all your personal information is not available to others.

Biometric scanning MUST on new handsets-- security to deter muggings thefts - NSA should monitor ALL terror sympathisers & suspects 24/7 worldwide.. yes -region lock all new handsets for added security against criminals thieves muggers terrorists and aiders abetters .. Make roaming CHEAPER for international travllers .. manufacturers must have ONE TIER international price +local taxes with full international warranty x2yrs .. CARRIERS should provide sim services .. no more carriers bloatwares .. would that be ! soon .. GSMARENA - PLEASE PLEASE DO KEEP GSMARENA FORUMS CLEAN from self appointed ragbags fanboys spreading lies deceptions bullying rude crude .. sane discussions yes .. NO trollers either ..

If by adding this feature, the price will increase by alot, i think its still better not to add in the eye censor... Dont be like apple, adding something that is not so important and the outcome of the price is way higher than people who want to afford it

So the next, last step is to read somehow your DNR to unlock the phone. Then the corresponding authorities will have rich database of fingerprints, pupil scans and DNR samples. Mass tracking FTW!
