Do any smartphones use facial recognition to unlock?

Any ICS or JB android phone with a front facing camera can do, they say it's not as secure as a code though.

JB has increased security with a "blink test".

Didn't realise that wasn't in ICS tbh. Can't be any more secure than the other methods anyway as they act as back up in case it doesn't recognise you.

True, the facial unlock does have a certain "cool" that a PIN can't measure up to, though.
