it is just a cool app. not so much of a security feature. a fingerprint sensor can be tricked. how would the phone supposed to know that it is a picture or the actual face ?!
it is not a retina scanner, now is it?
it shouldn't be a surprise for anybody else other than crApple fans who live in the iCloud where 800$ phones with no signal or lame battery are cool
Cool, nice feature.
Anonymous, 13 Nov 2011Can you see the results with the phone to your ear too?See, what exactly?
You should know that Siri tells you, a blind person can use it.
maybe they should combine it with voice signature like you have to look at the phone and say hi or any word the phone. so if you move your lips the phone knows you are a person and if you say hi knows your voice as well. Of course all of that could be recorded on a cell phone but will be harder than merely just taking a photo of someone'S face.

This is a gimmick that 99% of phone users will turn off, so what's the point of including it?
Android's fall from grace will be faster than its rise to the top.
OMG! seriously.. this feature make it that u cont even have to touch the screen to unlock.. as in pull you phone out, press a key, it sees u and unlocks.. its called convenience..
is slide to unlock a secure feature??? if you wanna securely lock ur phone u will have a sim pin, and all the security pins u can set.. there r even apps on the market that lock certain apps with a more secures encryption.. im sure if your a nobody... no1 is gonna want to hack into ur phone to look at the pictures of ur cat
AnonD-5666, 13 Nov 2011Problem with all you guys is that you DON'T READ: While setting up the face unlock , it say... moreThis is the first I heard of it, and it would be for you too had you opened this site first. I hope your rant made you feel better =)
Der Face-Unlock feature is not a security feature, it's just a feature to unlock the Screen without using your hands.
So dont cry.
MMAREK, 13 Nov 2011God... it's just lock screen not a PIN to your credit card.. I dont know why everybody deal ... moreTrue but if they unlock the phone using the Picture (PIN), They will have access to the market which is tied to your monthly bill which gets its money from? YOU GUESSED IT! YOUR CREDIT CARD! ;)

You should know that you don't have to use Siri on speakerphone, that holding the phone to your ear looks just like the billions of people engaging in normal phone conversations every day.

While setting up the face unlock , it say... more...but you chose to read the article, watch the video and leave a comment here.
You must be a real masochist.
Either way you can override the picture unlock if you know the persons password. so its a pointless way to unlock a phone.
no matter, 13 Nov 2011This means, front camera takes sneaky pictures 24/7 I will never buy/use any android phone in... moreif you look at the video more closely you'll find that you have to press the power button before the phone starts searching for a face, furthermore the face unlock option can be disabled, it just appears to be a lazy way of slide unlocking your phone rather than adding security.
Anonymous, 13 Nov 2011Nonsense I don't think anybody is gonna have picture of me taken that well.Doesnt matter .. Everyone has access to your Facebook page(DP) .. its only that damn easy ...

I will never buy/use any android phone in... moreSo your concerned about your phone taking sneaky pictures of you while you cheat on your wife?
Even if the phone will mostly take picture of the ceiling or the ground when its facing downwards.
And even the phone is not actually taking pictures , but is in fact just a rumour.
You need to see a therapist , you have serious problems. Conspiracy theory with phones camera? seriously? :))))
