troller, 17 Oct 2013It's better than fingerprint scanner of iphone 5s..anybody can copy ur fingerprint but can not... moregood luck trying to unlock your device on the dark or at a party!!!! go crapsung goooo!!!!

When Apple launched touch ID, everyone was saying what is the use of this. But if you see the numbers, iPhones sales are high due to this cool feature. Yes, we dont store any high security data in our phone, but when your phone is just lying on the table and your wife or girl friend or your jealous friend wants to take some information or messages from your phone then such features will comes very useful.
I don't use iPhone, but personally like this feature and want other companies to use these type of security features so that no one can infringe into your personal phone.
As far as Samsung Retina scan is concerned, I think they will surely put some laser or infrared technology so that it can work in the night too.....
Just hoping that these features should work in real life and should be only stored in the phone and not in the cloud or internet.
Sounds soooooo "useful", I'll stare at my phone till it scans my retina, RIGHT!

This news is about eye-scanning sensor, which is novelty for Android. It is high-resolution and can detect real eye, so it can't be fooled by photo or someone similar.
Most of these comments do not seems to be concerned with stealing personal identities, and how easy it can be done, but ranting as to who has the biggest tool. No wonder Samsung will find a ready market. I would have thought in particular my USA friends would be paranoid with the ease at which this sort of data collection, finger prints and eye scans, will find its way to the highest bidder. Android leaks like a sieve, and also Apple is open to turfing personal data to PRISM so hell, lets also give them eye scans, and fingerprints and bank account details all in one hits. What the hell is wrong with geekville. Get you heads out of the sand man.
[deleted post]It is even easier to fool an iris scanner using just an image of the owner.......
So instead of face detection with my galaxy s3 mini to unlock my phone which is very hard especially on low light wherein i cannot unlock my phone and they renamed it as '' EYE SCANNER'' Whahahahha
Shteeve, 18 Oct 2013If you think people who would own an iPhone 5 or Galaxy S 5 would be more likely to get drunk ... moreWhether you accept it or not,it's a fact....besides that does not hide the other shortcomings of iris scanning compared to fingerprint scanning in a smartphone.......
Shteeve, 18 Oct 2013For those comparing the "usefulness" between eye scanning and finger print scanning ... moreWow.... this is the most apt explanation on the inclusion of eye-scan, it really enlightened me and convinced me that it's a must have feature on another next big CRAP!!!! .... hahahaha....
This is actually a very old feature as it was introduced with ice cream sandwich and it was hacked by placing in front of the sensor a photo of the owner of the phone. The security underlying such a technology is very weak.
Apple's ideea was not bad. Unlokcing your phone with 1 touch is ideal. Eye-scanner unfortunately is on the opposite. It would be akward to put your phone to the eye each time you need to unlock, because scanning your eye automatically without putting it 1 inch to your eye is virtually impossible.
long story short, eye-scanner on phones = 0% chance of success
Anonymous, 18 Oct 2013Useless feature.Useless feature indeed! Rip Samsung and go for it Sony!
