As well as accessibility, and many people find the design just fine. And every other company has found a design scheme they stick to and they are not always so much better. Nor are they as ergonomic.

I don't think that is good idea, I usually unlock my phone twenty to thirty times a day, I would not do that with my eyes, it is not healthy even if Samsung confirmed the safety.

You Samsung haters are pathetic. Most of you have probably never even used a galaxy phone so to get some attention you make inflated opinions about things your little minds can't comprehend. Just stop it already and the rest who say: people "like" sony and htc more than Samsung, that's a little strange to me because the sales show that Samsung sells more phones than both of them combined. So while it may sound like you're intelligent in some way, your logic speaks for itself and you're just spouting utter rubbish

Nice, I had joked year ago that SGS5 will scan your eyes.
Fingermarks database and now this...
Any password without encryption could be easily cracked, no one will even bruteforce - so what purpose of Iris scan? Except PRISM of course.
Goodbye Samsung, FVEY slave.

I think the Iris Scanner sounds really awesome in theory...But would never be comfortable actualling using it. Maybe....maybe...maybe on a custom ROM where they can almost guarantee they possibly block off any miss use of it.

Start off by having capacitive not physical buttons. I don't care if it's on screen or not . Having to press the button is horrible for Android. Also, replace the menu with a multitask button
