So, uh.. What happens if the fingerprint thing gets worn or doesn't work after a while?
If you call AT&T for a replacement device, they'll just send you a refurb.
I've been wanting this phone ever since I heard of it.. But Idk how I feel about the fingerprint reader, I'd much rather have a normal lock button on the top or the side of the phone..
Cool idea but I don't think its as practical as they wanted it to be.

Lol, I agree with you and thebizz completely. But I'm assuming when the screen times out it'll lock automatically, but you'd need the fingerprint scanner to unlock your phone, correct? Cause you wouldn't have to slide the thing on the screen if security was what you were going for, unless you have a password and stuff, which to me is annoying, cause I like to do things fast and just get to the point. But if your fingerprint scanner thing breaks, what do you do?
And would you still have to enter in a password even if you're using the fingerprint scanner?

lol @ people worried about the fingerprint scanner.
1. I've never "worn out" a laptop scanner have you? (no)
2. You can opt to not use it
3. If your fingerprint doesn't work, you will most likely be able to ALSO use the password - the fingerprint will just trump whatever your login is just like on your laptops.
4. That is all

The scanner can be turned off if you don't like it.
The scanner doubles as an actual button there too, so you can press it on/off/lock, which can also be used with the scanner.
Best part about the design is that it is slanted so that it fits really well with your index finger when holding the phone, so in a sense it is ergonomically built.
I think it is a genius idea and look forward to abusing it and showing it off

I hope they add a "lock app" functionality witht he fingerprint lock. I might be ok handing my phone to a friend, but I don't need them going through my email etc. I actually had a cousin do that. Sat there for 10 minutes reading my texts before I noticed (thought he was gaming). I was so mad.

I'm used to my emails messages etc are read whenever I lay my phone down but I get into trouble when I use a password or pattern can't win for loosing. Oh well I've got nothing to hide. I would love to have this just to say I have to use the scanner, would probably work seeing she doesn't know androidRooted for life

On a side note, your cousin is not a trustworthy or good person if he thinks reading your texts like that is an ok thing to do. My guess is that is just one layer of his self absorbed personality. Least you know this now.
