i can only get excited about this the day Xiaomi actually activates face activation in my country .... i still believe that the reasons that they provide for not doing so are actually not really factual though i don't want to get angry about it .... BUT to be honest IMHO it was a feature that was advertised hence it was a feature that i have paid for and yet i am being denied the use of it

and not a single other brand bothers about any specific laws that should preclude it in my country whereas my country really has other problems to worry about besides whether a single manufacturer wants to include face recognition in their phones or not and ..... they should only just actively remove it from the countries that just preclude it specifically like some places in Europe and just activate it mostly everywhere else  

either way now it's an argument that i'm getting tired off - but if you are not giving it out universally you shouldn't advertise it ..... because to me it lands up being false advertising if my phone cannot use the feature but the website of the specific model is proudly proclaiming face recognition as one of the things i need to look forward to

Well put.
When I first saw this thread I thought that it could actually contain some useful information about the AI face unlock restrictions XIAOMI impose on users of their products but no such luck.
Like you, I felt defrauded when I purchased a cellphone with advertised AI face unlock just to find out that XIAOMI is being dishonest about the availability of the features they advertise.
Most annoying is the fact that, in this forum, some members, including moderators, keep parroting about the alleged legal constraints of AI face unlock without actually providing any proof of it.

Besides, most cellphones these days use fingerprint data and that is IMO a lot more private information than facial features, yet there seems to be no legal constraints on the storage and use of this very private information by XIAOMI.

I am in Europe, I own several ultra cheap phones, like WIKOs and ARCHOs, they all have face unlock and none has regional limitations, so, unless those brands are breaking the law, which I doubt because European authorities are very attentive of the GDP regulation and penalties for those who break it are very stiff.
IMO XIAOMI is the one breaking the law by selling products that do not deliver the advertised features therefore violating consumer rights.
