    Default Face unlock

    I used to think face unlock was a gimmick but I just set it up and its almost instantaneous. As soon as my face is in view of the camera my phone is unlocked. Anyone else use it?

    Default Re: Face unlock

    I tried it out a few times, but I didn't like it because the screen's brightness would always get switched to manual, and I'd have to change it back. Does yours do that?

    If you do use it, make it ask for a blink to make sure it's actually you, and not just a picture of you

    I switched to no lock at all, even no slide lock. It's amazing. Not a single **** dial in one month

    I never tried face unlock, but I just switched to PIN unlock from pattern because you are now supposed to be able to speak your PIN to unlock with touchless controls with 4.4. (I haven't tried it yet...)

    I tried it for awhile...it was cool except for places I didn't want people to know I was accessing my phone it was not cool because you have to stick it in front of your face to unlock it. Doh...
