Camera sensor - yes , improved but still there is room to increase. (i donot expect a pureview type of sensor though)
Touchwiz - Improved by large in comparison to previous versions. Nature UX is good (its again subjective to users choice).
Regedit, 18 Oct 2013aw, you could imagine how it works and got ready to criticize despite its a rumour.

More difficult to fool a fingerprint scanner compared to a small unsupervised use of an iris scanner.......it's funny how you're correcting others but you yourself have no idea of what you're talking about....pathetic....
Cue in spoofing app (hand your phone to someone on any pretext, app captures their eyes through the exact same sensor snd stores the photo which you use later, displayed on your phone, to hold up to the other guy's phone to unlock it once you get your hands on it undisturbed) in 3...2...1...

Rather improve battery life, improve camera (sensor size), remove ur crappy touchwiz or optimize it more.

There could be a possibility to include a tiny LED during lowlight.
and you could not imagine that??
for the record, retina scan is more secured than fingerprints. Period

If the phone is reset, its simply loses all content. no point in resetting a phone if i need to 'open' anyone's phone.
Useless thing. Imagine - you will need to center scanner opposite your eye, touch something on the screen and then look if the try was successful. If not you will need to do operation all over again. Not to say, that people trying to unlock device with such a method will look very strange... Eye scanner very likely will become just another toy feature, like many others preinstalled in S4 (say, eye scrolling etc).

Apple products have useful features? Fingerprint scanner is useful? Siri is useful? LOL. You must be joking.
Samsung is 100X more innovative than Apple.

that's their strength.
samsung is first but their use is not useful in everyday life eg curved screen, S4 gestures, view pause, etc. Innovative but useless in daily life
Kidneythief, 18 Oct 2013And next will be the Apple 6 with DNA scanner....Apple wont use a DNA scanner. Apple only adopts (copies) things that have already been done like the fingerprint scanner, pull down notifications, and toggles.
Another desperate move again of Samsung in hopes to outclass Apple. But as usual, this will be panned by critics again just like the useless gimmicky features on the S4. Apple remains superior.
slick cheap trick..
another useless app that will consume battery life. seriously, this level of security? is there an FBI/CIA shit in mobile phones to use this type of lock system? if somebody wants to open your mobile, eye-scanning sensor will be useless coz android can be hard reset. try to invest and improved more on battery issue sammy...
I dont like the idea of a mobile phone capturing a eye scan or a finger print. You might as well just exposure yourself 100% to the mafia and police, and anyone that wants this information to get access to your personal files etc.
