Thanks to my friends over at Verizon, I had the opportunity to get my hands on the Samsung Galaxy S9+ (The Camera. Reimagined.) back on March 6th and got to use it for a month. Now keep in mind, I have been using my iPhone 7 as my primary phone throughout this time and will be upgrading in September to either the iPhone 8 Plus or the iPhone XI Plus (or what ever they decide to call it.) Though there are some features I like on the Samsung it is not enough to sway me over to Samsung and run out and get me one just yet. I have never owned an android phone as I went straight from my Blackberry to the iPhone 4 back in late 2010 and don’t plan on switching now. Keep in mind this doesn’t mean that it not a very good phone.
Apple has recently been awarded a patent by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for a system that allows for a personal computing device such as a mac, iPhone or iPad to be controlled through facial detection and recognition, primarily for security and convenience purposes. The patent was filed back in 2008 and introduced itself by describing the problem between current electronics and their users. Saying that devices like computers inconvenience users by requiring action to keep operating without interruption. The patent also details the security risk that comes with passwords which don’t accurately detect a truly authorized users.
