    I actually went for the Android 64gb version. It was available sooner and I don't really see windows 10 as a good OS for tablets... But I should be able to switch when there is more software available. At least I'm going to try that one day.

    Totally otherwise if you went to sell your phone your biometric details would still be on there!

    Interesting.
    There's two things here,the factory reset doing just that and restoring the phone to factory condition,and a thief gaining access using the reset.
    A reset can be done from recovery,so the thief wouldn't necessarily need to unlock the phone. Perhaps pin protect the recovery? I dunno,this is a tricky one.

    Yes, I expect to have all my biometric data cleared when I factory reset a device.
