    For some reason the retina scan on my original Note7 was very unreliable. It would timeout 9 out of 10 times. Nigh useless.

    In contrast, on my replacement, the retina scan happens so quick that the screen doesn't even come up. I see the red light start flashing for a brief moment, and then I see my secured app launch. Never see the retina scan screen.

    Maybe I got a much better base scan than I did on my original phone, but it sure seems like it's working way better than it originally did.

    I don't use the iris scanner but the finger print scanner is crazy fast now. All I have to do is press the button real quick to wake it up and it unlocks the phone, before I would have to press the button and leave my finger on it for about 1 full second and then it would unlock.

    The iris scanner is awesome now. It unlocks it before the camera image appears and well before it get it to my eye level.

    Yea mine is ridiculously fast. It's so fast, I did a test to see what its limits were. One eye definitely unlocked my phone. It almost makes me wonder if it truely is secure.

    Never had a problem with the iris scanner even with my original Note 7. The fingerprint sensor is more problematic for me.
