All face unlock are insecure less Face ID from Apple thanks to the 3D depth mapping. Pure optical methods can be tricked and there is a reason why it is not used as a method for payments

It was shown that they can use photo to unlock with face unlock.

There are instances where the phone can be fooled using advanced printing and amplification of iris data. Still a step inferior than apple's face ID.

Using full screen gesture, took me few days to get use. It is not as fast in navigating than the old 3 buttons, but it looks cleaner.

Anybody find Samsung Pie aggressive to kill background apps? Every morning wake up, a lot of apps closed, left 3-4 apps. I disabled auto optimisation in Device Care, also same. By right, no need to always close background apps for Android OS leh. Dunno what Samsung engineers thinking.
my S9+ also closes a lot on android 9

I agree. My Note9's facial recognition unlocking is still nowhere near both my X and XS Max's face ID. So many times in certain conditions the Note9 can't detect while face ID nails it all the time.

Mostly due to Pie but there are at least 3 more settings other than Auto optimised go to Device care - battery - 3 dot menu - setting.

Didn't had the chance to try iPhone's facial unlock yet, but I was rather impressed with the Note 9. Could even unlock in very low light condition. At least before I updated to pie.

Also, the bluetooth transfer now takes forever

The iPhone Face ID is very simple. It is about the same with iris but you don’t need to align it with your iris as it uses your face. Just look at it while holding it a short 15 cm away. Works in pitch darkness as well. You would barely notice the IR flash red as well.

Bluetooth has never been fast. Try Wifi Direct.

it won't work if the lens is of higher polarising grade or at a different angle, because part of the recognition IR ray is blocked. Sunglasses are supposed to block UV, better sunglasses can also block more of the light spectrum in that sense.

Every one talking about complete darkness. LOL.

Face ID works regardless if you are in complete darkness or completely bright environment.

whereas for samsung's iris scanner, it works in complete darkness, and works best in complete darkness. Whereas Samsung's iris scanner doesn't work too well if you are in a super bright environment under the sun. Eg: at the beach, walking along the street with the sun over your head. Iris scanner will struggle depending on how overwhelming the UV ray is.

To circumvent this, you need to tilt your head in a way to avoid the UV ray shining directly onto the phone that masks the lower energy IR ray. SO basically to say, you can scan your iris when the sun is above you and your eyes looking down onto the phone which is facing up the sky.
