    Too bad they didn't have an Infinity Blade 3 demo. Reply

    I may be wrong... but iOS7 seems way faster on 5S then on 5. Haven't tested GM on 5 yet. But all previous beta wont anywhere need as "instant" and "smooth" as the video as shown.

    And this is with new Hardware that i think still has some more potential from Software and Compiler optimization.

    @Brian Klug, Can you unlock the phone via fingerprint scan without pressing the physical unlock button first? Thank you both for the great coverage! Reply

    Time to organize a kickstarter to send Brian Klug to touchscreen typing school? ;) Reply

    Should get him a 70D or something while we're at it... I kid!

    Nice hands on video, I'm rather jealous of the fingerprint reader... Seems like a good alternative to the pins and patterns (unlike Google's face detect thing). Moto had something exactly like this on the Atrix over two years ago, I wonder why it didn't gain any traction on Android? (AFAIK no other Android phone ever had a print reader)

    Also, how hard would it be to lift a print from the glass display or elsewhere and then crate a fake (silicon? Latex?) fingerprint to full the sensor? Reply

    Yikes, ghastly typos.

    create a fake... to fool...

    Apparently this is suppose to read sub-dermal as well so the it should be more resistant to commonly available methods such as the ones you describe. Reply

    I had the Atrix and there were a few problems with the sensor the biggest of which is that it just didn't hold up to regular usage. After a few months on being thrown around the sensor just fell off... it wasn't protected under glass and you had to swipe it just the right way for the unlock to occur.

    I think this implementation look a lot more robust from a daily usage point of view

    Haha, these quick movements look cartoony. Reply
