Hey MIUI'ers
How you guys are doing, I hope you all are enjoying your MI devices for power & feature. However alongside enjoying there was always need of protecting your privacy on smartphones to prevent unauthorized access to your device. Inherently Android is adding new & new features to its programming to provide genuine security to device. More over smartphone manufacturers & chip/processor companies working hard to provide security with ease to their customers. All smartphone chip makers exploring new & newer ways to achieve this and spending good amount of R&D expenses, to cater smartphone manufacturers in turn end users expectations.

Traditionally there are two methods predominantly used for unlocking devices first one in pin method & second is pattern lock, however in recent years technology has evolved to capture users biometric data & in turn use it as "key to unlock your device". Recently MI Note 3 has been released which involved all latest available technological breakthroughs to support screen unlock
1. Unlocking device screen with "Pin Method"

2. Unlocking device screen with "Pattern Method"

3. Unlocking device screen with Biometric data- Fingerprint Sensor.

4. Unlocking device screen with bio-metric data- Facial Recognition

Facial recognition is very recent technology and is available with very few manufacturers like Apple, Samsung & Xiaomi. If we talk about this technologies maturity, then I can say its still in quite early phase.
MI Note 3 and the recently  released Redmi Note 5 is equipped with all these methods of unlocking device screens. In Xiaomi's history first time Facial unlock feature has been introduced. Looking at the reviews it seems speed of device of unlocking screen is really good even compared with fingerprint sensor. It works flawlessly with quite good amount of face & device angle (tilting) reports says that works well even in low light conditions.
So guys, do you think this grooming technology will going to useful feature for smartphone lovers & we will see more Xiaomi devices with this in coming future.

I've tried fingerprint phone scanners from other phones before, and I really do think the fingerprint sensors from Xiaomi phones are really fast! Thanks for sharing! Looking forward to trying Mi's facial recognition feature!
