Apple’s Face ID is one of the most appreciated features of iPhone smartphones. While many other manufacturers of Android devices tried to implement a similar function in their phones, none of them managed to reach the level of security that Face ID provides. However, Samsung has finally decided to add face recognition to Galaxy S10, S10E, and S10 Plus.
