Galaxy S10 face unlock tricked by a video of the phone's owner

Galaxy S10 face unlock tricked by a video of the phone's owner

The update brings all the usual Android Pie features like adaptive battery and notification management, but Pie on Samsung phones also means One UI.

Unfortunately, the Galaxy S10's facial recognition feature remains just as weak as the one supported in its previous versions or on the devices of its competitors, according to Lewis Hilsenteger, a smartphone reviewer better known as Unbox Therapy on YouTube.

It's obvious by now that using facial recognition to unlock your new Galaxy S10 is definitely not a good idea and locking your device using this method could expose your private info if someone else gets their hands on it.

However, this method didn't always yield the same result when others tried to replicate it -unlike Hilsenteger's approach, which seemed to work nearly every time.

Stop obsessing over Pete Davidson and Kate Beckinsale's age gap
Davidson and Beckinsale first sparked romance rumours in January, when they were seen getting cozy at a Golden Globes after-party. Davidson initially appeared a little reluctant but soon opened up about Beckinsale.

Samsung is unusual in the way it handles unlocked phone updates.

If you were holding out hope that the facial recognition software would be more advanced or more secure on the new generation of Samsung phones, you're going to be disappointed.

In fact, the issue is quite widespread.

As previously mentioned in the beginning, in 4 out of 10 smarthpones tested by the Dutch Consumentenbond face unlock was found to be useless being easily bypassed with a simple photo. The worst example is probably from AndroidWorld.it, which was able to unlock the Galaxy S10 by waving a still photo around in front of the device.
