Hey all,

So went from the S3 to the S5 recently and have noticed one thing that sucks about the change.
I can no longer use swipe + pattern for the lock screen.

I have setup just pattern unlock, which should be fine, however, one thing I have noticed is, the power button is often bumped in my pocket and this makes the lock screen available...
Then, to make matters worse the new screen is soo sensitive, it starts swiping patterns all over the place in my pocket! (or trys dialing emergency numbers)...

This was never an issue with the S3 when I had swipe + pattern (or very very infrequently was).
Because you had to make it past the swipe to do anything else, and it was only once in a while that it would make it past the swipe.

Now, I could enable just swipe with the new phone, but, two things, I then have zero security and when it does unswipe, it will do who knows what with full access to the OS.

I would love to get dual lock back, is there anyway that people know of?!?

Any help would be very very appreciated!

Aaron.

Use something else then. Fingerprint all the way.
