Thank you Sony
So, after pathetic comes more pathetic. They all know, we all know, everybody knows: In this manner, the smartphone era is about to end! I, my self am tired of this pathetic so called innovation coming every 2 mouths. Crappy Nokia killed it self, and once with them, innovation died to. NOTHING INTERESTING in the market anymore. Only crappy android devices coming like bread in wagons, and that pathetic icrap7. While this pathetic giants are releasing useless crap so to keep their income great, they could do some school and release new systems, new ideas, variety. Not the same soap or sardine cans forms with the same crappy systems found on every junk that lies on shelf's.

Waterproof features are very important every other person gets spills on their phone. Yes Samsung features on the S4 are total gimmicks. I don't see the difference between touching the phone and controlling the phone 2 cm away. It wastes battery and delays the whole system. That eye strolling thing? it takes long enough to read your eye and wait for it to stroll . Advanced stylus? how magical can a stylus pen really be? Smart stay? it is alright to miss 2 seconds of a movie. If i am to go do something it is not hard to hit pause. This is another feature to waste battery cause it has to watch you NOT watching the movie. Gimmick
First they saw Gold Iphone so they made a Gold S4. Now they see Touch Id they try to make something different to go against that. Samsung if you want to be Apple, please stop leaking the next phone features so the current Samsung users do not think their current phones are already obsolete.
If there no laser then it will simply look at your eye, and then it can be unlocked witha good photo of you. Maybe that close-up selfie you uploaded to G+ last week will do. For example.
This sucks but that's the normal for Samsung anyway.
..People here are very funny. They did not say that its going to be the only unlocking feature. Again, they did not say that that's the only improvement coming in the Galaxy S5. Its just part of the minor utilities.Be reasonable guyz
Unnecessary ton of features practical we don't use them too often.... I feel sorry for young people who run behind this type of features and waste their money.... I have galaxy S4 and practically air gesture, air view and many other motion sensor features are very very less in use.
Tell me how many people in this world have lost their smartphone due to lack of waterproof feature and dust proof feature... Before our smartphone gets dirty we change always change it with new one.... Hahahaha....
pkc, 18 Oct 2013I said, I like the idea of finger print unlocking and others should use this feature also.
... moreLets hope they dont need to shoot any lazer beams because 1) it will probably waste alot of battery because people unlock their phones all day 2) If this lazer beam is to be done with a distance, you will look like an alien asking having lazers on your face 3) at the eye doctor they use the lazer very close to check your eyes. I wouldn't want to stick the phone right at my eye everytime i wanna unlock the phone. That would look silly as well.
I just think it's either have the phone close to your eye or have the lazer shooting all over to catch your eye. both sound bad to me.
Another useless gimmick by Samsung! Sony smartphones makes sense unlike crappy Samsung gimmicks again!
It is very easy to show how silly it is to buy a Samsung Phone. The S4 is just out not long ago. Now Samsung is leaking S5 info about Eye Scanning, Dust and Waterproof aluminum casing. Can you imaging how i feel if i have the S4 right now? It just shows you how silly it is to own a Samsung phone. They just want to push 50 things to you so you buy it. Once you buy the phone they already start giving info about the next phone which makes your phone worthless. Think about it Sam Fans

Samsung will not use this feature because Apple has already used it. I want iPhone with 5" display may be the next iPhone 6c will be 5" because iPhone 6 will not increase the size at any cost.
For laser or infrared is concerned, if you go to eye doctor they will test your eyes in dark and not in lights. So, there is technology and it depends on the company how they use it.
We as a consumer hope for the best technology and enjoy rather than just commenting who copied first and who is the best :)
wOot! PRISM supplier Apple with fingerprint database got outsmarted by Samsy galactic retina-database.
Official PRISMY supplier Ooogle needs you :D
Why not DNA scanner? Sony your move.
Ray, 18 Oct 2013Most of these comments do not seems to be concerned with stealing personal identities, and how... moreCould you please stop thinking like you are the masters of the universe? At this stage of the game the idea of the eye scanning & finger print technology is not to open our safety deposit box. We all know it's unsecurities and the possible leak of our information. it is just a good feature to do simple things like unlocking the phone and such. And if we are going to do something like banking transaction it is good to use as ANOTHER LAYER of security. A fingerprint senor & passcode is more secure than just the passcode don't you agree? In this day and age what cannot be stolen? the whole point of this is to ADD security. it is not the ONLY security measure. For God sakes, our bank account info gets stolen all the time. So let this be just unlocking our phones for now. Don't think too hard bro.
