    Agree, winter will be a great use case for the iris scanner. If it is effective, I will use it.

    There have been a lot of comments that the technology is not new. That is probably a good thing. Normally a few iterations of a tech are needed for usability. See fingerpirnt scanners.

    I think it would be great for brutal Florida Winters here.
    It's hard to use a phone with mittens.

    Probably just in the winter if I have gloves on.

    Depends on how well it works for me.

    I didnt care about fingerprint scanners until the note5 came out and it was very reliable. Will be the same for the iris scanner, if it works well I'll use it alot, if not, ill use the print.

    It's good to have for gloves, wet or dirty hands. I could see it being useful.

    Will it be possible to have both FPS and IS on at the same time and then choose which one you have to use? I've never had either on a phone so I'm excited to try both. It would be beneficial to use the IS when you have gloves on or your fingers are wet/dirty (like people have mentioned) and just use the FPS otherwise.

    One time at least to try it out. Do not know after that.

    If I get the Note 7 (I've had every Note to date but turned off by the edge screen) I doubt I'll ever use it, but I'll try it out just to see how it works.

    After learning about how the secure feature (secure folders, secure browser, etc) only works with the iris scanner I'm revising my answer. Anything I do that requires a password I'll log in with the iris to use the secure areas of the phone, and for the things I don't use a password for (basic web browsing, picture taking, etc) I'll probably just go with the fingerprint reader for...
