Samsung’s last flagship phone went up in smoke, literally and figuratively.

So the company went for something a bit cooler with the Galaxy S8, and supposedly more secure – facial recognition.

The theory seem to be that if your phone can reliably recognise you via the front-facing camera as soon as you pick it up, then you don’t need to press or swipe any buttons for it to wake up and unlock.

In other words, you get frictionless convenience and security, rather than convenience at the expense of security.
