I would never give up my G5 for this useless garbage. Unfortunately, apple has really killed any remote interest I had left in their products.

Why would they even want to replicate the camera? It's a useless fad...

Android without a doubt, has been a pitiful OS... let alone how inconsistent is it at implementing new technologies and whatnot. Apple has never been in for shit like: 'Faaaarst!!' Or 'Imma' be a bad boyo with the JavaScript tewlzz' as Android sure as hell does all the time. Doesn't matter if you do it first but poorly, matters doing it right when things fall in place.

More important than that though, who’s the girl with the phone on the other screen?

The companies are using high tech gimmicks to keep your eye off of the fact the cel phone market has hit saturation with innovation, and therefore have no choice but to offer a gimmick to get consumers to buy their next product. Why talk about creating a bigger phone next year if that is the main feature? People are wising up to the fact that these companies are changes the way in which accessories attaches to a device to make consumers’ past accessory purchases obsolete, so they need a new one. Yes, the cameras on these phones are nice, but now consumers are asking the question “Should I consider purchasing a stand alone camera, and just a simple phone”. Another question people are starting to ask is “What is my security risk with a smartphone verses just a simple phone”. When people realize they are giving up more and more security, and privacy the question no longer becomes “when will I purchase XX or Z”. The question becomes “Why”?

And what innovation have you come up with? Oh that’s right, nothing. So you should just shut your mouth unless you can come up with a brilliant idea, which will never even happen.

Ahh yes.... you’re really coming out with some really innovative ideas... not!!! You should your pie hole if you haven’t got anything nice to say... people are entitled to their opinions without being criticised. Grow the f up.

Who cares if touch id simply is easier and safer for users in real world usage? Sure a great gadget until someone (police or gangsta) surprise-forces it out of your hand and gets it unlocked by holding it in front of your shocked face! Let's see how it turns out, but I bet that's one of those Apple invention things customers didn't know they wanted because actually they really really didn't want it!

seriously..?? think again recently seen vivo v7 plus model doing faceunlock on android..

LOL...... First.... the subject is the TrueDepth CAMERA (Photos) Second.... Samsung, LG and others use the image sensor, Apple uses a 30 thousand dot projector with a infrared receptor..... just the same right?
WTF - October 2, 2017 at 10:02pm
Lol that’s what happens when you’re a fanboy and uneducated. It’s all the same apparently

Yes, seriously. face unlock has been existent for years now. But nothing as secure as Face ID. Not even close. For instance, the face unlock on the Galaxy S8 was spoofed in the demo area right after its event when a guy registered his face on one S8, took a picture on another, and used that picture to unlock the first. iPhone X True Depth System projects 30,000 invisible points using the Dot Projector on the user's face, and matches it with the one stored on a secure enclave in order to authenticate. Heck, all the major US banks that support Apple Pay agreed the replacement of Face ID over Touch ID on the iPhone X. Also, Face ID uses AI to learn and understand the changes in the user's face over time, like when they grow a beard, or cut their hair, or wear a hat, or sunglasses, even when they age, etc. This technology is not out there at the moment, nor will be in the near future. Period.

Exactly this point, Apple never release a product that is either immature or doesn't have the necessary security behind it. Yes facial unlock has been out for many years and has been spoofed with photos etc. If apple released something so easily spoofed, the world will flip. If you going to do something, do it properly and thats why Apple has been sometimes late, but its late so it can work and be perfected.

Hahaha, the whole concept of the first iPhone was immature based on the functions and features as a phone at the times. Get your facts straight! And you could trick the touch id with a frigging gummi bear when it was introduced, so there...
