What did you expect? It was clear they are just adding it to look good on paper!

Microsoft is a software company and so has big divisions in these areas there R&D would be looking at applications for facial recognition in many areas.
Judging by the many versions of Windows I have used,It will no doubt be a huge programme which consumes a lot of memory and needs to be corrected several times over with patches, But only when you subscribe every month to it.
i feel the whole iris scanner and facial recognition is stupid...currently ther is no better solution than the fingerprint scan....!!!
and on such an expensive ,so called flagship phone with top of line specs for 2017, this is such a shame.....!!!
Joselius, 01 Apr 2017If only it can use the secondary camera for iris for depth detection on the face. But, no matt... moreAs a quick method, they can use the camera focus to estimate distance then verify if the face displayed is of real size or not.. many other things too like heat signature.. they can also play the autofocus to read the face in 3d if the face is close enough and good light etc.. but no effort
ronweasley, 01 Apr 2017So the iris scanner works properly right ? RIGHT ? this is only the stupid face lock thing ?The Iris Scanner works. Don't worry. The Iris Scanner remains to be the most secure way to unlock your phone.
Safest and fastest option is to use the iris scanner.
Next would be the fingerprint scanner but since it's being placed in a weird place, it's a bit cumbersome.
U still have those 2 secure and great options. Why are u griping on it having a bad facial recognition.
So the iris scanner works properly right ? RIGHT ? this is only the stupid face lock thing ?
[deleted post]while it's insecure, it still has to be made and you of course have to defend samsung.
Microsoft's facial recognition system can identify differences between identical twins. And you can't fool it with pictures.

Joselius, 01 Apr 2017Waiting for the highest form of security to come. So far fingerprint and iris scanner is the b... moreSecurity? Your phone is totally pwned by Google, carrier, CIA, etc. Sophisticated authentication does not give you security, and that's by design.
Samsung releases a lot of gimmicks that only work half the time if lucky.
Of course, your twin will unlock your phone.
Everyone else who isn't cloned, the phone will work normally, fear not that your identity has been stolen.
