    With direction lock, you can unlock your phone by drawing a pattern on it...pretty cool I think

    Neat idea, but since you already have your thumb on the home button, might as well use the fingerprint. It looks like it takes a bit longer than the fingerprint, or a simple swipe, does too.

    Its easy and since the fingerprint sensor was temperamental... Its a lifesaver

    Been around the Moto X and other Motorola phones for awhile.... I,really like the Fingerprint Sensor concept. A nice option for locking and unlocking as well.

    I had my Galaxy S6 protected with a fingerprint lock and also encrypted, requiring a password every time it was turned on. I changed the fingerprint lock to a direction lock and the next time I rebooted it, it didn't prompt me for the password, but rather for a pattern. I have NEVER enabled a pattern lock so this is a bug. It is asking me to enter a pattern that hasn't been defined. Now I have to factory reset my phone. This unfortunate turn of events seems to coincide with changing the fingerprint lock to a direction lock, so I'd be very careful using this unlock mechanism if your phone is encrypted.
