You cannot advice Apple to improve their products if you are not the owner/CEO/majority stakeholder of Apple.
Buy Android phones instead!

The physical one on the iPhone SE is the slowest one in my experience between the A71 and the SE. The accuracy is similar. I scanned my fp twice, one time without and one time with my screenprotector, and 90-95% of the time, the scanning is succesful. The scanners improved a lot in the last years

Dot projector needs to detect entire face and it cannot do so with mask covering half of it. You could make it work, at expense of accuracy. You don't need to be an expert to understand that. No data points coz they are covered by mask means you're making it less demanding for accuracy.

If it's so easily done, why no one else has done even half of how good FaceID is? The closest anyone has gotten was Huawei which is irrelevant at the moment due to US nonsense and Google which killed it like 3/4 of everything they make.

If you consider yourself an Apple fan, you should criticize Apple, so Apple will improve it. I don't see how you or anyone will benefit from defending a flawed technology. It's asinine. Don't you want Apple to improve its products?

Apparently an Anonymous nobody knows more about biometrics than Apple engineers doing it for years. Sure pal and magic pixies are real. Removing half of the biometric data because it's obstructed by mask is a security risk that Apple is not willing to take even if users were. But by your logic, half of the fingerprint should also unlock the phone... Or just 2 numbers out of 4 with a PIN. If you don't get it how dumb that logic is you're a helpless case. Which you already are reading your nonsense daily...

Of course fingerprint is the ultimate security feature. But don't cry over your mis-usage and blame a company for giving you options..

I don't know why you defend a flawed technology. You can be an Apple fan and criticize Apple products. Many fans criticize products they like. Criticisms are crucial for improvements.

Anonymous, 17 Jan 2021So anyone who criticizes Apple is a hater?No, just you, constantly finding dumbest and lamest excuses to relentlessly bash Apple in every single article there is on GSM Arena. One thing is constructive criticism, another is your childish whining.

Anonymous, 17 Jan 2021So anyone who criticizes Apple is a hater?Criticizing about something is completely different than what these known anonymous trolls are doing who are in every Apple article. They try to hide under anonymous, but they wrote too much so they made themself known. That’s what salty Apple obsession does.

If you haven’t noticed that people who are Android users and who have been actually using iPhone before, talks very differently about iPhone even when they think Android is better. That’s ok. Not everyone likes same, but trolling in every Apple article about device which you have never owned is just sad and shows how envy and bitter they are.

I think they just doesn’t want to accept that smartphones aren’t made for them anymore and what they think is important and kept raving about companies are actually removing those features or just making them worse. S21 line is perfect example about this, it was huge slap against Sammy boys face and what they stand for.

YUKI93, 16 Jan 2021And yet there are some "genius" here on this site... moreWireless is definetly more expensive and has less audio quality than high-end wired earphones, but these days I think most people are gonna be happy with the audio quality of wireless earphones.

It's why the homepod didn't sell well: It's audio was amazing, but people just don't care for that compared to alexa or google assistant.

But then again, iphones have always been doing this. Take an already existing feature and implementing it to their devices. The bigger problem is that they are asking double the price, just because it is Apple.
Just look at the iphone SE. A 200EUR phone in a 400EUR package. Lol.

Exactly, everyone knows this. There was lot of vs videos in youtube when Face ID came to show how superior Face ID is.
