So thinking about my Android phone, I occasionally miss the swipes on the phone unlock pattern. It does get annoying, esp. if on the move. In fact, I kind of hate it, having to swipe it every time I use the phone or I sleep the display. If the TouchID and fingerprint sensor works the way Apple says it does; if it is both near-instantaneous and not finicky, i.e. works flawlessly even if thumbprint is positioned awkwardly, this could be a really nice feature. Really nice. Touch phone and use it, without repeated access errors and swipe motions. Over the life of the device, that is a whole lot of mini-frustrations eliminated throughout the day, year after year. Starting to rethink my initial impressions of the 5s. I thought it was a nice iteration, but I don't care about cameras, so initial reaction was meh. But no access errors (if it works), plus the fact 64-bit and faster processors means I can get a lot of future use out of the phone, it may be a very nice device for the long haul. Since I've written off the 5c due to the price, maybe the 5s is indeed the way to go. But will the TouchID be near-flawless?
