    to me i think i could use it more for example at the side of my bed when it's on the wireless charger to check sport in the middle of the night/twitter notifications e.t.c. with how quick it seems to be I think could be used more than i expected it would do.

    anybody think they will use it a fair bit or will it be something you use for like the first week?

    I will use it frequently to get into my secure folder. Seems to me that looking at the phone to get into the folder will be easier than fumbling to use my thumb.

    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 doesn't scan your eye. It is looking at your eye with an infrared light assisted camera. Then it is a housing the image, not your actual eye.

    It's an interesting thing, because while it sounds cool, no one knows what day to day is going to be like. Also, it is password and fingerprint backed up. So who knows which one will be easier. I tend to turn on my device using the home button. It reads my fingerprint at the same time. It's going to be hard to beat that speed.

    Some of the videos do make it seem possible though.

    I'd be shocked if I even set it up. Have it on my Surface and it rarely works as advertised. Finger scanner seems more useful and faster.

    I am going to try it along with fingerprint. It will be nice not to have to swipe my finger for the print like I have to do with my Note 4.

    It's another gimmick that will be fun at first but will get old quick.

    If it's as fast as the video, it's going to be awesome. Fingerprint scanner angered me with my Note 4 so much so that I stopped using it, Note 5 was better but still wasn't happy (using Lollipop) but once Marshmallow loaded, mine has been (almost) flawless. I'd say one out of every 10 tries, I have a failure and it is my fault for being in too much of a hurry. Can't wait to try the Iris Scanner and see where that goes... gotta' buy one first though, hugh?

    Odd, I find that it works great on my Surface Pro 4.

    I'm sure, but in the end, none of it is relevant. Not sure how the Surface does their Iris scanner, but its not going to be any sort of indicator to how the Note 7 is going to perform.

    It looks gimmicky, it works great in good lighting but in real world probably doesn't

    I'll definitely give it a try. If it works well, I'll use it. If not, I'll stick to fingerprint.

    If it works well as initial hands have said, I'll be using it most of the time. Will use that as my primary unlocking mechanism in most scenarios.

    Likewise.

    I cant remember how many times I'll be giving my little one a bath and someone calls me.

    °The iris scanner will come very useful in this case but other then this ........ I probably wont be using it !?!?

    Me too. Infrequently, except perhaps times when my fingers aren't dry. I can't envision it being faster or easier than using the fingerprint in any scenario other than this. The fingerprint unlock is already so fast and easy on the Note 5 that I can't imagine using the iris scanner much ..

    Would definitely use it as a back up if my hands/home button was wet.
