Does anyone know if that would be a possible feature to port or imitate on our z1? Gotta say that is one feature that doesn't sound like a gimmick. Perhaps there is already an app that I couldn't find that already does this?

It's nothing new, an app called "Super Download" has been around since 2012 doing exactly the same. It can be found here.

This. People keep saying it's a hardware thing. No...nothing samsung does is a hardware thing. Heart rate monitor? Apps did the same thing for years. The fingerprint sensor and IR blaster is the only "hardware" thing that can't be replicated on other phones. (or have already been replicated)

Even the fingerprint has been somewhat replicated with an app

I think what he meant by finger print is heart rate monitor.

Eh?

How does an app that pretends to scan your finger but just detects your touch come even remotely close to a real fingerprint scanner?
