The Note 7 announcement is quickly approaching. From this day forward you can expect all kinds of leaks and rumor confirmation leading up to the actual August 2nd event. Today sources have leaked the Note 7's Iris Scanner tech. In order for the iris scanner to work the user will need to hold the phone about arm's length away from their face. You will then need to point your eyes at two circles on the screen which will allow the device to scan your iris.
I have a feeling that this will take longer and be more annoying than the current fingerprint scanner implementation.
Before fingerprint scanners I did not use a screen lock at all. The reason is because I do not want steps between me and what I am trying to get to on my phone. I need the lock screen interaction to be blazing fast and seamless. This does not seem to be the case with the Iris Scanner. In order for the Iris scanner to be useful to me it has to be insanely fast and should work just by me glancing at my phone. Anything less than this and I will have to stick with the fingerprint scanner.
Are any of you willing to take an extra half second to position your phone just right for your iris to be scanned?
