    Just started playing with the IRIS scanner today and I'm pretty impressed with it.
    Even works when I have my old fart glasses on. Neat little Gadget.

    Actually it's working through my polarized sunglasses as well. Never would have thought it could do that.

    Yep, been flawless for me with contacts. Use it mostly for secure folder and occasionally for unlocking the phone.

    It takes tad longer at dark and with glasses. I tested with recording my iris (face) by another cell phone and tried showing that video and ofcourse it wouldn't work.
    I thought training with glasses on would do better for unlocking with glasses so I tried training with glasses on but it performed much worse than training without glasses and unlocking with glasses. Bottom line: get off your glasses and contacts for the training.

    Sometimes the iris scanner is so fast, that, the phone unlocks before the little circle things can appear... I'm impressed

    It works extremely fast with my glasses as long as there's no glare. Works pretty good in the pitch black too. Occasionally I have to lift my glasses, but not often.

    The only time it doesn't work is when I'm wearing my mirrored Oakleys. But I set up fingerprint for when I'm wearing those. Other than that, I use iris lock all day

    Wouldn't work with my glasses. Finger print works great too

    Definitely going to use it because there are a few times when ur finger tips are wet or I have gloves on where the iris would be more convenient.....Especially during the east coast winter coming up..Taking off ur gloves in 20 degree Temps to unlock your phone is a thing of the past now

    It's funny, I was just thinking about this earlier today. I am out in the cold a bit at tailgates, etc. I figured it would be really useful. It seemed super useful in that situation until I realized: After I unlock it with my Iris, then what? To use the phone you still have to use you fingers then. I know the S-pen is a possibility, but then we are really getting into the weeds :-)

    Well I have gloves that I can use with touch screens without taking them off....Got them off amazon so I can operate my phone during the winter without taking off the gloves....

    I'm trying to get used to it. I love that momentary feeling of awesomeness when it unlocks nearly instantly.

    I can't get used to (so far) the order of screens. Feels like there is an extra. The Always On Display throws me off. I want to swipe it out of the way, then scan my eyes, but I first have to clear the AOD, then swipe up to get the Iris scanner to come up.. totally ruing the iris scanner being better with gloves on!... I appreciate why the did it, but it is a second (third?) touch of the screen, when my finger is only millimeters away from the finger print scanner.

    Have not set it up yet but I am going to soon. Did you set it up with your glasses on?

    I can't get the thing to register my irises. I've tried and tried in all different kinds of light, and I just get a message that it's failed to recognize. No screen protector on my device. Only thing I can think is I had LASIK years ago, I wonder if that messes with it somehow?

    I'm pleasantly surprised at how good it is.

    It's very fast to detect your iris, sometimes to the point where the preview window doesn't even appear. Only issue with it to me is that it's kinda limited in functionality, though I'm optimistic that the tech can evolve in the future.

    Despite that, it's still a secondary form of unlocking for me. The fingerprint sensor on my unit is insanely fast. About the same speed as the iPhone 6s, as it already unlocks if I press the button to wake the display.

    The iris scanner is way better than I thought it would be! It's pretty quick and it works with my contacts (I even set it up with my contacts on!)

    No, I set it up without glasses on. I love it.

    It works good, just have to hold it at the right angle which is inconvenient for me

    Coming from the Lumia 950xl, the iris scanner is really fast on the note 7 and as someone mentioned, there were times it just unlocked before I can even see the line up eyes screen, but having to swipe up to use it, the finger print is just quicker to use.

    You got gloves that have your fingerprint on them?

    I agree it works well. I don't use it for much, though. I have my phone unlock when in proximity to my Gear Fit 2, and don't really have anything to drop in the secure folder.
