Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Embarrasses Mid-Market Device

It's worth pointing out, however, that the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are yet to hit stores and ship to preorder customers.

The new Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ now come with notable design changes, especially the new bezel-less screen on the top and bottom of the device for more screen estate, called the infinity display. Most AIs, such as those of Microsoft, Google, Amazon or Apple, scour the web and provide information about the subject questioned by the user, Samsung's Bixby adds a new layer of interface onto its devices.

According to Tech Investor News, Gigabit LTE would also mean users will now be able to pull videos and photos from the cloud, where they will open instantly as if they were already on your Galaxy S8.

Samsung's next major phone, the Galaxy S8, packs an impressive set of features.

But the new facial recognition feature has a fatal flaw that could potentially render the feature useless as a security measure: it can be fooled by a picture.

You'll be much better off using the fingerprint reader or, better yet, the iris scanner.

There's an iris scanner that can be used to unlock the phone and access secure folders.

Let us know what you think of the facial recognition revelations in the comments. Considering that the product has still not been launched and the company might improve the facial recognition with software updates going ahead, we will have to wait and see how this feature develops going forward.

But in a latest video released by iDeviceHelp, facial recognition may not really be a safe method to log in.

And Samsung should stop touting facial recognition as a way to lock your phone.

Bottom line, the video embedded at the end of this article shows the Galaxy S8 facial recognition being tricked by a photo, which could pose some serious security issues if not addressed. As The Verge notes, the demoed devices weren't final products - so it's possible that Samsung will tighten up the phone's security before launch.
