    Sure, why not. If it sucks, I won't use it. If it works, I'll use it; simple as that.

    I'm going to use it too if it works well. I mean why not? No other phone has this feature which is a good enough reason for me to use it. Plus it makes me feel like a secret agent with awesome gadgets.

    I'll use it. I hate pattern recognition and password/pin entry.

    Forget it not a chance it will get used, heck I'll more then likely cover the front facing camera anyways so it can't be used. Besides I can't stand the stupid lockscreen slider let alone having to put the phone towards my face just to use it.

    No. Too slow. I don't even use passcodes or pattern unlock on my phone now.

    My concern with using it is that it will be a major battery killer. Firing up the camera every time the phone is activated, maybe even if its in m pocket if a button is pushed. That seems like a terrible idea on a phone thats probably already going to barely get through a day especially with LTE turned on.

    i wont use it in every day life since my phones are never out of my sight.

    but when i travel i will probably use it. not a fan of pin lock so if it works, i would use it on occasion.

    I might try it out for a few weeks but I am guessing no in the long run.

    So... Your going to push a button on a phone that has only 3 on one side? (not sure if theres a camera button) And I'm sure they would have a screen before the facial recognition, but anyways, does using the camera for potentially 5 seconds even use much battery if any?

    I just hope my no lock screen widget works with ICS. I like to disable the whole works.
