I've just done just that. The sales patter was too strong for my will power to resist.these look great,will upgrade from my pixel 2xl when they drop a bit.
I find this an odd decision. They kept banging on about ambient computing so surely giving away a Nest Hub or Next Hub Max or even the new Pixel Buds would have been a more logical way to go?!You do get a free Chromebook currently worth £249 if you pre-order.
They're trying to popularise Chromebook uptake.I find this an odd decision. They kept banging on about ambient computing so surely giving away a Nest Hub or Next Hub Max or even the new Pixel Buds would have been a more logical way to go?!
Maybe they just have a load of these Chromebooks lying around, they need shot of?!
No, for some reason Google have omitted it from the release firmware.Pretty sure there’s an option to not allow that.
- Looking at your phone can unlock it even when you don’t intend to.
- Your phone can be unlocked by someone who looks a lot like you, like an identical sibling.
- Your phone can also be unlocked by someone else if it’s held up to your face, even if your eyes are closed. Keep your phone in a safe place, like your front pocket or handbag. To prepare for unsafe situations, learn how to turn on lockdown.
What a strange attitude. Having a phone that a child or other family member can unlock while you sleep (without even touching you, like trying to put your finger on the print reader example) is terribly insecure.Don't really know why there is such a MASSIVE hub-bub around the eye's open issue.
We've had fingerprint sensors on phones for many years, way back in 2013 when Apple showed off their version and how amazingly secure it was apparently back then.
However, you could press someone's finger against it is they were drunk or sleeping, or hell just chop off their fingers if you really wanted to!
So, face un-lock works with eye's closed. Big whoop!
Seems like it's Apple Fanbois that are trying to make this into something.
However, yes, I would agree, it would still be nice to have that option in settings, which I'm sure will probably appear now, in time, given all the fuss.
But this will of course make it slower to unlock.
But, it would be good to have this option for the customer.
TBH if this is the biggest issue they have to pick on, it must be dam good on all other aspects.
Well I read and listen to many Apple and Android Forums/Podcasts, and have no allegiance to either.What a strange attitude. Having a phone that a child or other family member can unlock while you sleep (without even touching you, like trying to put your finger on the print reader example) is terribly insecure.
I haven't seen anyone but you mention Apple, are you the "fanbois" (sic) you're referring to?
I have to agree, it's a shame Google constantly apprears to be one step/year behind others re hardwareLack of wide angle lens means this is a pass for me. Was looking forward to trying a Pixel but it looks like the P30 Pro will be my next handset.
