AgentZachs, 01 Apr 2017Except this flaw is within Android itself and not Samsung. Seriously. This has been well known... moreAmazing. Complaining about google's (or Samsung) face recognition while nobody complains about swiping to unlock. A swipe should detect MY thumb, shouldn't it?
Oh dear. Google's face unlock was just another means to quickly unlock your phone. It's not about security. It's gimmick, for god's sake! Besides it does function as it should. It only unlocks with the detected face whether real or in photograph. So what's the big deal?
Except this flaw is within Android itself and not Samsung. Seriously. This has been well known for some time now, is GSMarena hiding under a rock? The S8 has an iris scanner ffs, use that instead of Android's horrible facial recognition.
Would it recognize depth of field, it would be different story. Also f8ngerpring teader on the back is useless when phone is put on table. Maybe note will be better.
I never used face unlock on my previous Android phones. What's the big deal with S8's? We had it for years now. LG's KnockCodes is safer but I prefer PIN or password. Fingerprint sensor will kill your idle time 2x-3x faster since your phone won't go to a deep sleep and act like a wakelock.

jesse.clark, 31 Mar 2017Facial recognition is a low security option for unlocking just like pattern, it's used instead... moreYou're an ultimate ignorant because Chaos Computer Club Hacker Jan Krissler Finds a Simple Way to Fool IRIS Biometric Security Systems to bypass IRIS Scanners.
You fanboys might as well give Sammy your blood, sweat and tears...oh wait...you already do when you purchase their phones
s8 samsung thank you what we call future technology ++wow feeling when you hold the s8 phones +++hate it or like it ++this phone is going to be record breaker ++dame killer phone +++
xXoXx, 31 Mar 2017after the edge screen...iris recognition and heart rate monitor this is one mor gimmick to add... moreIris scanner isn't a gimmick, face recognition was never a safe option. You need to learn the difference between face recognition and iris scanning.
Facial recognition is a low security option for unlocking just like pattern, it's used instead of normal swype. That's why it can never be used as a payment option even. Always use iris scanner or fingerprint scanner. Iris is as fast as face recognition and no one can bypass it.
after the edge screen...iris recognition and heart rate monitor this is one mor gimmick to add in sammycrappy phones! nevermind, the only thung that wasnt gimmick they remove it (ir blaster).
waste of company...
This year G6 will take the cake and Samsung s8 will not get same sales as s7 edge... We need a phone that really just works... No gimmick.. Win win for G6 this year
