    Will it unlock if the person is asleep and the phone is put in front of their face? I know this is a stretch and I'm not hinting at wives/husbands but also roommates, over the road truck drivers (duos), etc. Thank you

    Will it be implemented on one plus 5? At the moment we have to swipe up after face recognition

    If the OP5t has the same front camera of the Op5 why don't you allow face unlock also in OP5 with a new software update? Remember of your fun Oneplus or They will forget about you tomorrow.

    I was sceptical when saw the feature during launch but the reviews are promising ... I would like to know if this will work with my specks on /off .. will try when my phone is here ..

    And on implementing this for 3, 3t and 5 why not ? If it's software only then all oneplus models should benefit from it ..

    Ya but it's not as secure as the OnePlus 5t. It's a bull shit feature from the Google company. After scanning your face ,If you place a picture in front of the screen, the phone gets unlocked. Whereas in OnePlus 5t it will not accept that picture as it uses 3D rendering to scan your face. So setting up the facelock on your OnePlus 5 is completely waste.

    I think It's just a software tweak.I heard that the OnePlus 5t uses some 3D rendering algorithms to improve it's facelock from the Google's facelock.

    I'm gonna reply you again if i get correct answer.

    Interesting and a good choice to let them work together for optimal security and fast unlocking of the phone. I hope this will also be implemented on the 5.

    Face unlock in 5T is not bcoz of some exclusive hardware, its software.
    So OnePlus 5 & 5t having same hardware it can be implemented in 5 also. When company planning to introduce this feature in 5.
    Few months back people purchased OnePlus 5 at same price OnePlus is selling 5T right now, so its only logical & ethical from business point of view that OnePlus should include this feature in oneplus5 also, & we hope company will do that asap.

    Yes, that's available in older devices too.

    Go to Settings -> Security -> Smart Lock -> Trusted Face. Register your Face ID by positioning your face inside the marked circle, and the device will register your face.

    To use Face Unlock, hold your device to your face level in the locked mode. A small unlocked icon will appear at the bottom when device recognizes your face. You need to just swipe the screen, and you are in.

    I'm already using face unlock on my oneplus5..unless they are using a different type of technology in the 5T ?

    I like that it unlocks automatically, but sometimes you just want to look at your notifications (or skip to the next track when you're playing music) instead of actually unlocking the phone.

    Maybe they should add an option to change it so that it unlocks the phone but you have to swipe up to get out of the lockscreen

    It is trusted face has no guarantee over your security and can easily be tricked because it just captures an image of your face nothing else it didn't even tell you to move your face. I am sure that Face ID in 5T is something different than this and is even more secure hopefully...

    If it's using Software to identify your face instead of hardware then will the face unlock feature be put out in future OTA's for the other phones like OP5 and OP3T?
