Samsung actually adds something useful to the SGS2.

   Face-unlock, one of Google's brainchildren for Android 4.0 and it's a fun feature to use, something to show off in front of your friends. But, Samsung thinks it should actually be usable on a day to day basis and as such they've come up with a novel but clever way of making sure you don't have your friends unlocking your device with a picture of you.

   Samsung's solution was to add blink detection to the software so that if you don't blink, your phone doesn't unlock. Beautiful solution to a difficult problem, props to Samsung for kinda thinking outside of the box, Google may will be nicking that feature.
