    Will you buy a phone without fingerprint sensor ? Is it a must in 2018 ?

    It is a must if you rely on your smartphone for more like banking, chatting, payment etc., And it is always better to have a fingerprint sensor as pin codes can be identified easily not fingerprint.

    Why would you keep all those apps open ? As if you have access to phone, you loose everything.

    I would like to see an official app lock app from Android.

    We don't have any app lock in Oreo, you need to download an app from App store. I don't use any apps for locking my Application. Fingerprint does the work for me.

    I think they have it. I have not tried it either. I don't know why such an important feature is part of the core.

    Agree, but i believe by not implementing them in the core they are giving opportunity to app developers.

    Hmm. I don't want to give the app security to 3rd party vendors. Because we lock only sensitive apps.

    True, that's why i avoid most of the apps available in the store. Google should give the basic option for better security.

    A lot of my friends are using finger print lock. Mainly because they can leave the phone lie around.

    I also do the same, Sony Xperia has the option to hide Messages in the lock screen. Unless it is unlocked with Fingerprint none can read it and i am very happy with the feature.

    I think that is a feature in Nougat and above.
