Smartphone iris detection with glasses on?

As a wearer of glasses, would iris detection (like what Samsung is working on) be compatible with my eyes?! Surely smudges could cause problems? Not to mention using your phone in the dark.

No idea, I guess it depends how good the technology Samsung use in the phone is. My guess would be that, if the fingerprint reader in the S5 is anything to go by, the iris scanner will be unreliable at the best of times, never mind bringing glasses into the equation.
