Therefore this is a comment section to discuss how Samsung is going to do that? In your case at the Border, you are in a fixed place with fixed equipment and lighting to do the job. It is a totally different story with a mobile phone. So please stop using these government examples and try to make us the ignorant fools when these examples itself are totally ignorant and irrelevant

Are used under supervision as they can be fooled using an image,there are a few which can detect a real eye but they are bigger and expensive and impossible to fit in a smartphone(in recent years)....

You don't need lasers as you assumed you do like you see in movies. I'm a Nexus member, an US/Canada border program, which involves scanning your eyes to go through the border and I can assure you there are no lasers whatsoever and it just takes a picture. If US and Canadian customs uses this technology, and Samsung uses the same, just because it doesn't have the lasers you see in Mission Impossible movies, it doesn't mean it's not secure. So before you post uninformed comments, make sure you know what you're posting so you don't sound like an ignorant fool.

Apple give good security feature with iphone 5s, Samsung will give higher-level security than iphone 5s via galaxy s5. Apple can not to be outdone; in the future, apple will give more level security feature with "butt recognation" in iphone 6 :-P :-)

Just another device for consumers to spend extra and test on their half completed feature. Samsung always wants to be the first to prove they can do it, but always half done.

Therefore, you will have to take off your sunglasses, press a button, put the phone 2 cm from your eyes to unlock the phone lolz

Cant change your eyeballs any more easily than you can change your fingerprint... therefore it is still a remarkably bad idea.

Using a fingerprint or retinal pattern to identify me and prompt for a password (THAT I CAN CHANGE IF COMPROMISED) is the correct approach - but that makes no sense for a device that's personal in nature to begin with.

The "blow to unlock" feature seen on a few micromax phones where you literally blow on the phone surface to unlock is actually better thought through and more sensible.
