That's why all Samsung fans have a funny face like this?
they're just trying to unlock their phone?

And what happens if someone has already been born with a funny face ?

Apple's already moving in a different direction. They are going to the basic and use your fingerprint on the home key to unlock.

Time for a lawsuit. You slide your tongue out, so this infringes the slide to unlock patent.

lol, good idea in terms of security but very impractical; i would never be able to unlock my phone in public lol. silly ideas like these is why i love google, coz i think theyre doing it just for fun as well. why not use the camera for retina scan, that would be awesome!!!

how would your phone camera capture your retina? I don't think it's even possilbe with such cameras

You realize how accurate and advanced the phone's front facing camera would have to be in order to scan your retina? A lot more than they are today that's for sure.

Pretty good idea, but it seems like one of those features which you just play around with at first and then forget about it after.

what if you weren't doing a silly face and your phone unlocked just because you were weird looking?

Some of you are confusing the picture in this article for what the feature really does. All it's requiring is that you face have motion before it unlocks. So now a simple picture would not bypass your security settings.
