This is the only new good feature that this phone has.

Only? Did you just ignore the specs, and after seeing the picture just started to hate comment. Once again, it doesn't look that sexy (opinion, some might disagree), but otherwise, it's a boss device.

Ok, this is borderline sickening, PhoneArena...you could very well have easily did all of your research and came out with it in a complete review...using 1...dammit...ONE article....this is just poor journalism and is borderline spam....

Knowing what is the real meaning of professionalism, just compare PA articles with GSMArena ones.

Beware: more articles to be flooded by PA.
I'm actually excited to demo the phone in person, especially the fingerprint scanner. The one of the 5S is damn near flawless.

One big flaw is that you need to turn the screen on first before you can swipe. That is not needed with the iphone.

And another big flaw is that you need to swipe, with the iphone you just press the home button with your thumb, and instantly scans it and logs in without even showing the lock screen, which is a very smooth process.
I was hoping for samsung to add a more premium feel to their galaxy phones,starting with the design, but i am disappointed, specs aren't everything you know, guess i will wait for iphone 6 and galaxy s6 to see what they bring to the table.

its useless cus it will not work sometimes.

I'm pretty sure that they store it inside as a code, like Apple does. (Not sure how One Max does it, though)

Apple doesn't storage it on their servers idiot.

You really think the NSA doesnt have your fingerprint when you applied for passport, drivers licence and other documents????

I have no idea why this is so funny, but this comment is damn hilarious. All I did was read 'NSA scanner' and busted up laughing.

Same boring Samsung... I'm glad I switched to G2 and didn't wait for this thing.

Swipe the home key to unlock and then you can pick up the phone from the floor.

Want to know what's wrong with this video?
You didn't try it with a random finger or a stranger's.

Oh, come on... if Samsung implemented it, it means it works. I'm not a Samsung fanboy and I newer owned a Samsung phone. But, when it comes to its flagship, Samsung is very cautious and I think they would never put a fingerprint sensor if it didn't work flawlessly.

Wow, are you new to samsung phones? Wait i forgot, all of their eye tracking and air gestures work completely flawlessly on the S4. I think you need to get some experience with samsung phones, or at least read some reviews on them. Im not saying they are crap phones, but not all the features work flawlessly, and they have been known to release half baked features. To be fair though, I've not found a phone yet that works completely flawlessly and prob won't anytime soon.

Wow just wow on that fingerprint scanner. Samsung wants to get taken to court over this one. Knowing how suit happy apple is, why would they implement it in basically the exact same way? Bad move Samsung...bad move.
