Apparently, it's pretty easy to fool the Galaxy S8's facial recognition lock

The Galaxy S8 is water-resistant and comes with IP68 certification just like the its predecessor, The Galaxy S7.

Unlike Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, older Samsung smartphones, like the last year's Galaxy S7, don't feature a dedicated hardware button to access Bixby. But Samsung treads the bleeding edge of technology - they always got to be first. The feature would also pave the way for Galaxy S8 owners live streaming 360-degree videos for virtual reality. The Galaxy S8 Microsoft Edition still runs Android paired with Touch Wiz, so what's the difference?

Just look through the various forum threads over on Android Central and you'll bound to come across many that are now pitting Samsung's latest against the LG G6.

Samsung claims the facial recognition feature should be used as an alternative option to the fingerprint sensor or iris scanner, according to Mashable.

The everyday lineup showcases Bryce Harper, Jayson Werth, Daniel Murphy, Ryan Zimmerman , Matt Wieters and Adam Eaton . Through seven innings, he allowed just five base-runners (two singles, three walks) while striking out seven.

We've seen benchmarks for the Galaxy S8 before the phone's official unveiling, and one thing seemed clear. Like many, I've already pre-ordered my Galaxy S8+ and have been watching many YouTube "hands on" videos to gather some preliminary information on the device.

The recently released video, however, suggests that the camera can't easily distinguish between an actual person holding the handset and a photo of that person, potentially causing security concerns. Both are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 for USA markets and Exynos 8895 Octa for markets in the Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

The tech giant said the stores that have been opened to the public since Saturday are located in many Hi-mart stores, RT Land, its own Samsung Digital Plaza and outlets of local mobile carriers.
