    I also use a combo of FPS and Iris - whichever is more convenient at the time. It's actually quite easy to unlock.

    I'm using facial recognition and fingerprint. Haven't had a chance to use fingerprint as facial has been flawless so far.

    I'm using face recognition at home along with the FPS. At work, I'll use the iris scanner and FPS.

    I find that facial recognition doesn't work very well in low light.

    It's worked for me in dark rooms with the only light coming from my phone.

    Fingerprint is as flawless as the one on the pixel.

    Iris and fingerprint for me. Inside the house it's iris. Outside and work it's fingerprint so I look less of a Muppet.

    I am using Iris scanner and 4 digit pin. Iris scanner is real fast. Thinking of trying fast lock at home and car.

    I'm using the fingerprint, glasses + darkened/pitch black rooms makes face and iris not usable.
    Radiology?

    I'm using fingerprint, iris, and pattern. Find myself using the pattern a lot.

    I am using the iris scanner. It is very fast under normal light - not in direct sunlight. I do not even see the camera rectangle.

    I used it last night in the bedroom with the lights out and it worked. It took a a couple of seconds, but it worked.

    The iris scanner worked before and after the update.

    What am I doing wrong with the FPS? It doesn't unlock the screen for me and I have it set to unlock. I still have to press at the home button and then swipe it open.

    For the most part it stays unlocked with Smart Lock with it either connected to my car, watch, location at home. etc I discovered the long hard press on the home button to skip the lock screen which is great as it annoyed me having to essentially unlock it twice from both the AOD and then the lock screen. Otherwise I use the face recognition or the 4 digit code. Really haven't used the FPS.

    Does the Face Recognizer work when you have sunglasses on?

    Face recognition works too good when I'm at the gym. Had to turn it off so it doesn't unlock since I actually wanna use the media controls on the lock screen.

    Face recognition and 4 digit password.
    Not a fan of the iris scanner as its an ugly feature on this phone. I loved the iris scanner on windows phone, wish it was done the same way.

    After using the Iris and FPS I'm now trying facial recognition and FPS to see which works best for me.

    I use primarily Iris, but sometimes fingerprint if I just so happen to have my finger in the right spot.
    Fingerprint since it's the quickest way to the home screen. All others are a 2 step process (unless I'm missing something)

    BTW the location of the scanner works just fine if you have a case on it
    There's an option in settings to go straight to Iris or facial unlock when you either hit the home button or power button. That makes it one step.
