    Is it secure enough that banks are willing to trust it to authenticate mobile payments?

      Considering its solely a FF camera doing the work I don’t see how that would be possible. Lol.

      Face ID is definitely a superior product. I’d still like to see it work at sharp angles when it’s in front of the user on a table.

      Does it allow twins, family members and people who generally look alike to work? If so it’d make a great competitor to Face ID

      Can it be unlocked with a photo? That’s not even competitive, I have no joke, it’s just awful.

      Why would the older version of tech be “competitive” with the latest improved version? That doesn’t even make sense.

    • Brad Fortin

      That doesn’t stop people from comparing the two and talking about the two as if they are competitive.

      The only people making it a competition and comparing it to the older tech are desperate iFanatics looking for a deflection from Apple lies over throttling iPhones.

      And still somehow there manages to be a fingerprint option for those that don’t think it’s secure enough. Weird how they are able to do it but some companies force you into inferior unlocking methods and still some Evangelical-type supporters will defend actions of such companies

      Kettle, meet Pot.

      Fingerprint is the way to go for sure as even Apple’s improved Face ID has been shown to be much less secure than advertised, not to mention the privacy concerns associated with it.
