True but if Android manufacturers start to include the scanner it's because of Apple's successful implementation. Either way it won't make or break a device if it's included.

I just find it humorous that we get two articles 5 hours apart that completely contradict themselves as to what the S5 will have. I know it's two totally different authors, and I'm assuming sources, but I can't help to find it funny how often PA does this.

You have to be crazy, if true, allow Samsung to scan your eyes. Ten years from now, find out you have cancer and severe case of cataracts.

Bhahahahaha! Noo way! I am "sooo surprised"! :P Let me guess, the next LGs, Samsungs and whatever manufacturers products from Asia, will come with fingerprint sesor and (if Giggle copies well) an 64-bit OS! :))) Hmm, now where have I seen these before...Oh, I remember! In the last year's iPhone 5S:))))

Good to see you have such a great memory. In the future, when other companies are capable of producing smart watches, televisions, and larger screened phones, you'll remember that you've already seen those as well.
