    This is great. It scans my eyes with contacts THROUGH my Ray Ban shades.

    Works quick for me too. Any way to it some you dont have to swipe first use it? Like just have it look for scan as soon as you wake it? It's easier to just leave my finger on the home button to unlock than to press home/power then swipe for iris detection.

    I have found it a bit hit and mIss. When it works it is super fast, but sometimes it just doesn't want to work. As far as speed comparison to fingerprint scanner goes, I find it comparable when using AOD, as you have to push the home or power button first anyway.

    I am a little confused as to why the phone insists on asking for my pin code after a reboot and will not unlock with biometrics. Does anyone know why it does that?

    Fingerprint.

    The iris scanner is cool and works great during the day or in good lighting, but not so well in the dim/dark. It still works but takes a bit and I have to really open my eyes.

    I might use it come glove weather and actually take some time with it. But for now fingerprint is the way to go for me.

    It also struggles in direct sunlight but it's still nice to have more than one option to unlock the phone.

    I have both setup on mine and use them both interchangeably. It is amazing how quick I can unlock my phone using my eyes, considering this is generation 1 of the iris scanner. I hope they can figure out a way, to one day, scan an iris through sunglasses.

    Inputting your pin after a reboot is by design. It is a "security feature" that is built into most phones, not just with the Note 7. I hope that answers your question.

    Wow that's impressive. I have both set up and use both about equally. Came in very handy when I was washing dishes. And one only seen it struggle outdoors in sunlight. At night or a pitch black room never had an issue. Im often times already positioning my phone correctly naturally for it to unlock with the iris scanner. I seemingly goes straight from a swipe to unlocked at times completely bypassing the iris scanning screen cause it's so quick

    Fingerprint works great. Iris scanner works almost as well. But I have my Gear Fit 2 as a trusted device, so it is always unlocked when I'm around. I'm just using the Iris scanner for the secure folder, but I don't really have anything to put in there. Maybe some passwords for work eventually I guess.

    I just got my Note 7 yesterday and set up the iris scanner. Works beautifully. So far, I'm liking it,

    Which do you prefer to lock your device? Finger print scanner, or the Iris scanner?
    The iris scanner gives me a mini headache. I hate it. I see no use for it.

    Had my Note for 24 hours and have not even tried the IRIS scanner.

    Both. The iris scanner is fast for me, it gets it unlocked before the scanner even opens.

    I've got both set up but I'm so used to the finger print scanner. The iris scanner is insanely fast though... like blink and you'll miss it. Great party trick too haha

    I'm using both. At work when my hands are dirty it makes it easier to unlock.

    I set both up just to try the iris scanner, and it's blazingly fast really. Obviously not quite as quick as touching the home button, but the setup was faster. And I'm really impressed with how quick it works.

    Fingerprint scanner if I'm just opening the phone without a reason. Iris scanner when I double tap a notification on the AOD
