    For the blank smart lock page issue, although "settings, trust agents, set off smart lock, restart the phone and switch on the smart lock back" will help, I realised the page will go blank again at the next restart/shutdown.

    Need to go through the whole procedure of set off smart lock in trust agents, reboot to get it back again. Please fix.

    Honestly, how many people here have people constantly trying to hack into their unattended phone with a picture of the phone owner? Maybe I'm being naive but I feel like features like this are more so you can have a basic barrier to entry without hindering performance. That's why I'm not really bothered by limited low light functionality - I would just unlock it the same way I would if I never had face unlock. And if I was seriously concerned about privacy, I'd probably disable anything but fingerprint or look for alternatives that encrypt my phone or something (maybe require use of an authenticator?).

    I guess that's how it works so fast even when brining phone from side.

    I cannot add the face data. I removed the previous one because my phone got a bit slow in responding to the face unlock after I did the upgrade to Open Beta 1.

    It says to put my face in the circle, but there ain't no circle.
    If this is a bug then I am reporting it and also where is the User Feedback app which is available in Beta Versions.

    It isn't that insecure. Photograph tricking hasn't worked for me as of yet. I have been using it for two weeks now and think the convenience is worth it. If I ever lose my phone I will just remotely wipe it.

    yes it's safe but in the night sleep time someone showing our faces unlock quickly my suggestion add feature to scheduled off face unlock when our we want it would be better.

    I try it since 2 weeks, that was very fast, but that didn't work in the dark [e]1f60a[/e], the better thing it's add a setting to set the luminosity default of lock screen at maximum Auto and reset to user setting.
    I hope this answers can be seen.

    So I noticed one issue with the face unlock on the OP5T.

    If I wear reading glasses and close my eyes, the phone detects the face and unlocks! [e]1f602[/e]

    I love the feature, if people are worried about security then don't use it... Or go buy a $1000 phone that does it "securely"

    It would be great if the face unlock assistive lighting can be automatically disabled when night mode is active. It burns my eyes out when i just want to check the time on the lock screen at 3am..

    Getting very irritating smart lock.
    I have been using this feature on many different phones over several years and never had a problem with until getting the OP 5T.
    Why hasn't OP fixed it?
    They claim it's a Google problem...unique to the OP 5T? YES.
    Surely OP know why it isn't a problem on their other phones but is on the 5T. So just fix it, as the workaround is a right pain.
    Come on OP never settle, listen to your customers and fix this issue NOW.
