Yay! Samsung's new Galaxy S8 come with state of the art facial recognition, we're safe now-- oh wait-- It can be fooled by a picture.



With the Samsung Galaxy S8, which launches April 28, coming with a new facial recognition feature that lets you unlock the phone just by looking into the front-facing camera, there was a lot of excitement as this was a much shorter verification method than the fingerprint scanner and also just as safe.

But unfortunately, it's not exactly secure as iDeviceHelp discovered this week.

In a demo, which we first saw on The Verge, iDeviceHelp was able to fool the facial recognition feature with a photo. It took a little longer than normal for the S8 to register the photo, but it worked.

While Samsung have admitted that the fingerprint scanner is a more secure verification method than the Facial recognition, one wouldn't expect that the phone would be fooled that easily. 

So with this in mind, it is in your best interest not to use the facial recognition feature as it is flawed. You're better of with the Iris scanner, or Fingerprint, or even with a PIN.

The dust is finally settling from all the Samsung Galaxy S8 hype, and after all that settling, we are still left with a pretty awesome phone.

There is no question whatsoever that the Galaxy S8 and S8+ are the two most stunning smartphones the world has ever seen. It's certainly sure that they would sell without problems.

That's on one side though as there's this small issue that users might find mildly irritating or downright unacceptable.


The case of China getting all the good stuff.

What's happened apparently is that the Galaxy S8 decided to move away from Apple’s iPhone strategy and offer just one storage option in each market. That means you’ll only have one price option, and it’ll ship with 64GB of onboard storage as well as 4GB of RAM. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ have microSD card slots, so you can always pop in a card up to 256GB in size if you want to add more storage. 

Good right?

Well, it seems there's even better but you just might not get it.

According to reports, China will get a better version of the phone than any other market. So while the rest of us will only get 64GB phones that pack 4GB of RAM, the Chinese versions of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will include 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM.

This might not annoy everyone, but for those who are really into their specs, this will be downright unacceptable. I guess we'll just have to wait for the almost inevitable blowback all this will get.
