    Now that the miracle update for my fps, my phone unlocks fast and I'm wondering if we need face unlock.

    Do you guys think having it on uses more battery since we always use the camera to unlock or do you think it's negligible.

    I'm always looking for ways to save more battery

    Hmmm...uses more battery of course(since the entire screen turns on).but not to an extent where your phone will suffer because of it...

    But i somehow need face unlock as for example when my fingers i registered are dirty and i need to open the phone i just have to double tap the screen with anything and it will scan my face and unlock.

    And quite useful when driving as well as it might be difficult to use the fingerprint due to the angle(and i have to see where the sensor is) thus double tapping to wake and the face scanner goes to work.

    But it all depends on yourself lol.

    True. I do use it for driving. I guess it's not big of an issue to use it?

    I just think the camera being on all the time will be bad for battery

    If it does, the affect is negligible.

    I would say it's not noticeable at all even if it uses a little more.

    Now that I've come to face it I don't notice any battery drain

    After testing it a few days I can confirm face unlock uses much more battery.

    Now that the fps sensor is great I will disable the face unlock.

    If you disable face unlock does that mean you're saving face?

    Can't say it drains it that much, I didn't even bother setting it up as it's not as secure as FPS.

    I would say yes, but like the others, it probably won't be noticeable.
