iPhone Feature Request: Copy ‘Skip Lock Screen’ feature from Google’s Pixel 4

Face Unlock on Google’s Pixel 4 is less secure than the iPhone’s Face ID, but it does have one feature I’d like to see Apple copy: Skip Lock Screen.

Copying that would be perfectly fair, as Google has recently confirmed that it will be copying at least part of Face ID’s Require Attention feature…


The Pixel 4 will copy Require AttentionLike Apple’s iPhone X, XS, and 11, Google’s new flagship Pixel 4 smartphone can unlock by recognizing your face. However, the company quickly came under fire when it was revealed that the device can be unlocked even when the owner is asleep, simply by someone else holding it up to their face.

With iPhones, there is a Requires Attention toggle. When this is on, your iPhone will only unlock if your eyes are open and you are actually looking at the screen. Google has now said that it plans to copy at least the first part of this requirement.

Although, Galaxy S9+ that is powered by Snapdragon 845 SoC is certainly faster than any Android phone but it cannot outperform the A11 bionic-powered iPhone from Apple, the iPhone X. However, in a speed test video put together by YouTube channel EverythingApplePro, the iPhone X has lost out to Galaxy S9+ purely in terms of performance.





Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro review: Finally on the right path [ Video ]

Sleek design and Samsung Pay integration make the J7 Pro the company's best showing yet in the Galaxy J series.


Samsung has a long history of reusing components in its budget devices. It has done so to varying amounts of success in the past, and we've seen several models in the Galaxy J series running horribly outdated hardware. The Galaxy J lineup is now in its third generation, and Samsung is finally taking steps to address the issue.

Although the Galaxy J7 Pro is powered by the Exynos 7870 Octa —which made its debut in last year's J7 2016 — the company has rolled out updates in other areas — the phone has a 1080p panel, an all-new metallic chassis, 64GB of internal storage, Samsung Experience 8.1 UX based on Nougat, and Samsung Pay integration. The last point is crucial, as the J7 Pro is the first mid-range phone from Samsung to offer its digital payments service.
