Here’s Samsung Galaxy S6 new fingerprint unlock side-by-side with Apple iPhone 6 – fingerprint unlocking

Is the Samsung system easier to use? or does touch id offer better security?

People are nowadays more concerned with their phone’s security. They do not want anyone accessing their personal data.

There are many things to consider about phone security. The first is ease of use, then the design of the phone must allow the security feature to be accessible.

Lets look at the specifications of both phones
