    Both. Iris, if I'm double tapping a notification. Fingerprint, if I'm clicking the home button.

    I have both enabled. I use the fingerprint most times, but there have been quite a few times already that it was more convenient to use the iris scanner. I like that you can have both enabled and unlock using either or.

    I set mine up with my contacts in, and it has worked almost every time whether i have my contacts in or not.

    Its still not as fast to unlock as fingerprints because there is the extra swipe step, but it reads my eyes super fast!
    Works fast for me, but when I don't have my contacts on it doesn't work.

    Iris. Fingerprint never works worth a crap for me. This iris scanner is fast and I don't have to hold it a certain way.
    I agree, the iris scanner is fast. Although the fingerprint scanner works for me, I've been using the iris scanner.

    I saw a you tube video just before release and the guy didn't have to swipe the screen. He touched the home button and the iris scanner came up and worked. Anybody know how to do this?

    I don't know for sure, but I'd assume that this would work if you disabled the fingerprint unlock.

    Right now using pin. As much as I want to use Iris scanner wearing glasses makes it challenging. Finger print will work best for me

    If you live alone, I say roll with fingerprint to unlock your phone. I recommend the iris scan if you have a roommate or girlfriend / boyfriend that might gently place your finger on your phone to unlock it while you are asleep. #peoplebecrazy.

    I absolutely love the iris scanner. Went to a concert last night and it worked like a charm even at night. Was awesome.

    If my gf did that I'd be single the next day. Bigger issues at play if you were worried about that.

    lol, also if you have something to hide from your significant other you probably shouldn't be together anyways.

    Primary: Fingerprint
    Secondary: Iris

    The FPS on my particular Note is extremely fast. Just press the home button to wake the phone and it already unlocks. As such, it has become my primary unlock method. However, I've also registered my iris, for use when I can't use my fingerprint and for the Secure Folder.

    It actually works surprisingly well, though it's not perfect as in my experience, too much light can confuse the scanner. Eager to see how this tech can improve in the future.

    Mostly fingerprint but the iris scanner is fun. When I first set it up I was outside and it was very sunny. When i went indoors it wouldn't read me. I erased and redid it inside and it works great now. Not something I'll use a lot perhaps, but a neat gimmick to show people if nothing else.

    I've used both Iris and Fingerprint in rhe short time I've had the Note 7.

    The Iris was used mostly as entertainment the other night at a lounge where everyone was asking me about my new phone and wanted to see how the iris scanner worked.

    For every day practical use it's been the fingerprint scanner.

    I don't like where I need to swipe on the phone , then aim when I can just easily swipe then place my fingertip to unlock !?!?

    I'll keep both and use accordingly

    Both iris scanner is great if you use always on display and double tap a notification to go straight to it. The iris scanner is fast and reliable for me. I don't even really have to position the phone like I thought I would.
    I set up iris for this specific reason! Works pretty well so far.

    I have iris, fps, and trusted device set up with my s2. I will usually use fps, or just double tap the notification on the aod
