It seems that manufacturers are keen on adding it to their latest high end smartphone models; the unannounced HTC One Max was photographed with an icon that looks like a fingerprint. The Apple iPhone 5S has been rumored to have a fingerprint scanner ever since rumors started spreading about the phone...

please.. I want a metal frame(or at least a hard polycarbonate one) ... fingerprint is a nice addition..

I love sketching my ideas so there is no other alternative. samsung please for the love of god increase build quality .. note 2 was AWFUL .. S4 was a disaster in terms of build quality. .

Z ultra, htc maxx, Nokia phablet, oppo, Acer, Huawei, are those your option if you don't like the design of Samsung phones, Just buy stylus, pencil, toothpick, or whatever in your hand, as your s pen.

as I said, I LOVE sketching .. so there is no other option.. I had a galaxy note(original) and the Spen was awesome. I've tried Xperia Z ultra(because I have techblog in my country and recently I've reviewed this device) but the pen experience isn't the same..

Spen (WACOM) with pressure sensitivity and fast response (immediately showing result on screen) is the best pen experience right now.. hope HTC adopt WACOM pen or samsung adopt a better build quality process..

In no way am i excited about finger scanning technology being added to phones. Holographic technology now that's something.

Im actually a Sony guy. If you'll compare the first article of GN3 many praises it. It's just an observation. No fanboyism intended.

Know what Samsung, you better replace it with dual stereo speakers, and fm receiver, these two are more useful than that useless scanner.

I'll agree with this. Plus I worry about the abuse of the fingerprint scanner with the NSA. Of course, the government already has my prints due to the background check for my job. But that was voluntary, I could have chosen not to work here. When they start taking fingerprints surreptitiously with this kind of tech...

We love Innovation, wich Apple iphone5s is not particulary big on this.
After being really the best ( retina, UI, )
Apple is on a conservative way (for the iphone i say, cause laptop and macpro are really innovative)

It is goos to see sammy, sony and even Alcatal pushing the perfect companion the the best!
