Galaxy S8 Facial recognition can be bypassed with a photo

"It is important to reiterate that facial recognition, while convenient, can only be used for opening your Galaxy S8 and now cannot be used to authenticate access to Samsung Pay or Secure Folder".

A YouTube channel named iDeviceHelp tried testing the Galaxy S8's advertised face recognition software. There are hundreds to choose from, but we'd recommend one of the many outlined below. People hoped, however, that Samsung had managed to improve on the feature. The release date is April 21, but they can be preordered today from the major wireless carriers, starting at $720 at Verizon and $750 at At&t, T-Mobile and Sprint.

Waiting for a few months before purchasing a smartphone will also enable prospective buyers to make a better informed choice. Being one of the most popular phones of the year every brand is offering a case or two.

Infinity Display: The first thing you'll notice about the S8 is that it has no buttons on the front screen.

Of course it's IP68 dust and water resistant, so a waterproof case won't be needed. The standard model has been equipped with a rather large 3,000 mAh batter while the bigger 6.2 inch model sports an even larger 3,500 mAh battery. So, we'd recommend a nice slim case or something with added drop protection.

The screen protection seems to be better in Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime, as it packs a Gorilla Glass.

Bixby is an intelligent interface that will help users get more out of their phone.

The customization ensures the productivity experience on Galaxy S8 is enhanced with the Microsoft apps.

The test includes rows and rows of smartphones plugged into charging cables that charge and discharge smartphones several times, before they are deemed fit and certified for use. Other companies have tried the phone-into-desktop feature before, but nothing has ever really caught on.
