What if, instead of entering a 4-digit code or connecting dots, all you needed to unlock your phone was your finger print? If you have an iPhone 5S, you already know that your “home button” also doubles as a finger print reader, in a technology Apple calls Touch ID.
As always, Samsung has taken this new technology to a whole new level! Per CNET, “There are some clever touches however: you can register eight fingerprints — presumably your eight fingers, rather than eight other people — and each one fires up a different app or shortcut when you unlock the phone”. While we speculate on what the Galaxy S5 will bring, check out the video below to see the finger scanning in action on the iPhone 5S.
