No way note 7 beat iphone, iris scanner was first seen on Fujitsu Arrows NS (IT people favorite company)
Uncharted, 10 Feb 2017 The first mobile phone with a fingerprint scanner was the Toshiba G500 and G900 in 2007You're right dude. They think Apple and Samsung started the fingerprint and iris scanner security thing. Well in fact, Japanese smartphones started implementing this securities in the mid 2000s. That's not all, Japanese smartphones have already mp3 download, TV, videocall etc while iphone and other devices during those times are still limited. Iris scanner have already in Toshiba smartphones as early as 2013.
You're wrong. Japanese smartphones Fujitsu Arrows line have already iris scanner on their phones as early as 2013. And they just release an iris scanner on their tablet last year.
Why do people make a big deal about being first to something?
As long as it works fine, there should be no issues.
Apple iphones are cool, don't get me wrong. Just something is too plain about them. Yet they plain work and are work horses at that. I just cannot stay on one consistently. I go back and forth between an iphone and my windows phones. They better come with the thunder this fall.

Unfortunately for Apple they lost a lot recently do to lack of innovation. Sure the phones sales are up that is because of already existing customer base. I have no clue why they would introduce an iris scanner. I guess so they can be like the Jones' next door. At least they keep trying...

Durable, sturdy design and at least 5 years of update support and not as many (software) issues. The only thing which might have to be changed is battery but that's normal for lithium ion which doesn't last really long
ILLUSIOCONSCIENS, 10 Feb 2017Too late Apple. MIcrosoft and Samsung make it first.I also did the same mistake by falling for Apple's cheap tactics to attract customers and bought the jet black iphone 7 moving from Samsung but all I got was disappointment. Try and know.

You can mock Apple for it's lack of innovation, or it's blatant copying of ideas from other manufacturers, but even if only half these rumours are true this does sound pretty much like a 'greatest hits' of flagship phones. If Apple wrap it up in a pretty design and sprinkle in a few useful ideas into it's latest iOS they will have a massive hit on their hands that will sway many people sat on the fence of the Android/iPhone divide, and will sell in the tens of millions regardless of it's expectedly inflated price tag.
I say this as an Android fan with huge cynicism of all things from the fruit logo'd corporation, but damn, this sounds like a phone I might actually desire.
Take aside all technical specifications. What I want is a phone, that lasts. Both Samsung and Apple have issues, of course not all the units, but it's a Russian rullette. Huawei brings reliable devices. I would like to have qhd, apple's Eco system, but if I only get 1 year warranty...
Anonymous, 10 Feb 2017progresses? lol t'was already made ages ago mateso you are one of those people which isn't able to do so. By the way, if anything is implemented in iPhone, first Chinese also do it, and then bigger brands until it is standard. Just like fingerprint sensor and gold and rose gold colors which began to be trending on smartphones after apple implemented them (that doesn't mean they invented those things, but it means they published them to the wide user base)
