Seriously! an Iris Sensor?? It sounds quite cool and I would die thousand times to buy that phone but, at this moment it seems quite impossible, how they are actually gonna pull this off? Whatever, I have started daydreaming of it and in my dream, I am thinking of myself as an undercover spy ;) @fastassignmenthelp
