Sorry but Knock Code isn't secure at all. I'll stick to my really complicated pattern and PIN.

i guess there is no real secure way to protect your data nowadays..if your phone got stollen yes, maybe they cant access your phone right away, but there are other ways unfortunately.

i believe what he says in becoming n°3 could be true in near future...they did cool improvements with their phones like the G2, nice NEXUS 4 and 5..im expecting to see that phone made with the material that "heals itself" after scratching it.

Any code or pin can be cracked. I know of many second hand resellers who crack codes on phones almost effortlessly. I believe Knock Code is just as secure as pin or unlock codes. Especially with the right type of screen protector on your phone.

I don't know why they're pinning their hopes on such a gimmicky feature.

I agree. It honestly seems like a free floating pin. It's not any different and yet it's slightly more impractical. It's not some big feature.

I'm still waiting for the "Lick Code" feature and the very innovative "Lick to Unlock" System.
It will have a moisture detector and tongueprint scanner.

I think the knock code is a nice feature, offers a secure way to unlock the phone without number memorization and no gimmicky fingerprint scanners.
