    I just love the way it looks being on the back vs the front
    So it is more a matter of look rather than a matter of functionality for you? What if in the future, they can make it under the glass?

    Thats fine. I just don't want a button on the front . Though their phone still looks nice and I might debate on it

    That makes sense. It certainly is cleaner without a fps on the front. Though i prefer functionality over looks.

    The only functionality they did with the button was swiping on it. I'll probably pass on it and see how the Mate 10 looks

    But functionality,i was referring to usage. A rear fps would be difficult to use when on a desk.

    Yup. Although I love my rear fingerprint scanner, I will for sure try a phone with a front-facing one for that very reason. Trying to check notifications/unlock my phone while it's flat on a table is important to me.

    This is one reason why I LOVED my LG G3 - the double tap to unlock meant it didn't have to come off of my table, bedside table, bed, etc. Front fingerprint scanners are cut from the same cloth.

    Yup! And apparently (hope I didn't read this wrong) the HTC U11 also has double tap to unlock. I really need that feature in my next phone! When I first got my Honor 8 I quickly realized that I couldn't double tap that screen. 🤣

    But if you use a secure lock screen then you still gotta enter the pin/ password or whatever if you use dttw.

    Yah, it takes longer. But 4 digit pin takes a second to type in

    Pattern or pin lock is also less secure than fingerprint, IMO.

    Fingerprint is probably more secure for most people as people can see you entering your pin or pattern . Sure people can duplicate your finger print but it's much more difficult

    Duplicating your finger print is more difficult but it has been done. And when iPhone center out with their finger print scanners, everyone was stating fingerprint scanners are not secure. I like them only cause it is faster. I do love the picture password from BlackBerry as well

    BLACKBERRY'S PICTURE PASSWORD PROTECT SYSTEM WAS AWESOME - can't believe I'd forgotten about it!

    Well there are a few issues with fps. First, LE can compel you to use fps to unlock the phone, but not pw or pin or pattern. Second some people thought that the data is stored online but it isn't, only in the local device.

    And of course there is no 100% secure method.... Anything can be hacked. fps is one of the most secure commonly used method and also the easiest to use.

    Well I was going to get another Honor 8 but my boss and also best friend ordered me a free iPhone 7 with my service totally paid for. I could not turn that deal down. I'll wait on the honor 9 it looks to be now. I should get my new phone Monday sometime. I do miss having an honor though. That's for sure.
