    I'm bummed they did away with this feature. I have the Note 5 as was surprised when they only included a couple effects for that phone, but enjoyed the sparkling bubble effect. I know of its trivial, but I think it looks really cool and to get rid of it entirely kind of sucks. Maybe nobody really cares because I haven't seen it brought up. Oh well, guess I'll start using the fingerprint scanner to unlock my screen now since the animation was the only reason I didn't before.

    Fingerprint scanner is fast enough you probably won't even look at your lockscreen anymore. I too liked the animations before, and am also sad they did away with them, but it's not something I'll truly miss like some other stuff like the Multitasking launcher or not having those hideous, obnoxious heads up notifications (yes, I know that last one is Android's fault in general, not just Samsung).

    Goes both ways... Have seen complaints of people who don't like it.


    Personally it wasn't a big deal since I rarely use the lock screen with fps anyway

    I don't use the finger print reader as it messes with Bluetooth headsets.

    Ummm... how exactly? I've been using it with 4 different BT headsets and none have given me any problems.

    i would also like to know what's going on. i've used it with three headsets of different brands and had no issues...


    as for the animation, i liked some of them, but i am the most relieved that the "bloop" sound effect is finally gone! that was smallest biggest thing i hated about samsung phones since the s3.

    Never was a fan of the sound effects, but I did enjoy the animation. It was easy enough to disable that I'm just surprised that they did away with it all together. I do think that the fingerprint scanner is more refined and accurate so I'm actually getting used to it.

    When driving, initiating a call using BT headset still has you unlock the phone first before you can say call mom. It does bypass the finger print, but still have to swipe to home screen to initiate.

    Yes, I've turned on all the Google stuff, trusted devices and etc. But it still is a Hassel.

    Ummm...nope, I do that too with the car's system, Android Wear and the headphones I wear around the house. They all work without unlocking the phone.
