[Poll Results!] Should your handset switch to the iris scanner when face recognition doesn’t work?
If your authentication method of choice on your Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ is face recognition, I’m sure you’ve been left feeling frustrated when it’s too dark to recognize your face, forcing you to either enter a password or use the inconveniently-positioned fingerprint reader.
This got us thinking… Why doesn’t face recognition automatically switch to the iris scanner, which utilizes infrared to work at night, when it’s too dark to detect a face? It’s a lot more convenient than stretching to reach the fingerprint scanner—and not to mention more intuitive.
