Re: Ho hum, another Samsung phone.
sachinEE, that's a pretty big assumption. When Samsung first rushed to copy Apple with a fingerprint scanner, they screwed it up badly. It was worthless. Even now, without Google supporting encrypted fingerprint information, Samsung, and others, keep this private information in an easily broken into place, in an easily read form. I have little confidence that Samsung will get this right either. But the Win Phone reader does NOT work well. Just read the reviews and articles about it. I'm sorry, but 80%, or worse, does not make a useful device. It must work 99.9% correctly. For consumer devices, iris scanners are not ready for prime time. I understand that with a rapidly disappearing smartphone footprint, Microsoft came out with this, and with Samsung's dropping Galaxy S sales, they may feel as though they need to have something like this too, because it's the latest thing, you know? Just like they're going to give us a copy of Apple's 3D Touch this year. We'll see how well that works out without support for it in the OS itself.
