You know, if using other body parts on a fingerprint scanner is your thing. And, no, we're not going to show you.
Also: Damn, that phone gets cold.

it better if the 5s can do it!!
Yum, want me some of that
I don't want to know what else Phil tried to unlock it with. And you probably never want to borrow his phone. Lol
Great post on an unfortunately boring day...
Posted via Android Central App
Yeah, I thought today was the big day. At least that's what so many posts around here made it seem like.
Phil Nickinson says:
Which ones? I wasn't aware we'd done any. :p
My same exact reaction.....I read AC everyday and had no idea today was "a big day" lol
Halloween would be ideal for a kit kat release ;-)

Or thanksgiving. Or Christmas. Or even valentines day next year. Since kit kats would be a nice treat for that. I don't mind waiting.
I really don't want to know why you decided to try ... or what else may unlock it... There does of course have to be some use for a scanner next to a camera.. no.. no.. just wrong.
I was at least expecting a gif.

Me too... or at the very least a picture of hairy man titties pressed against a screen. Pics or it didn't happen!
I'm easy — but I'm not that easy.
Sounds like this might be a money making opportunity. Maybe start a kickstarter for Android device nipple unlocking tutorials for ten thousand and see what happens.
Or of a shirt with a flap covering the nipple, where you can easily lift the flap to expose the nipple and unlock the device :)
Shouldn't this be under "android after dark"? I come here for the pictorals......erh I mean the articles. I can't believe you would put something like that where so many people can.....blah blah blah....seriously funny stuff Phil.
Let's see after a few beers
My S-Pen went through hell to deliver this important message to you
Is this a segue into an AC After Dark special?
Ha! I should have read your post before I did mine.....you beat me to it!

My, what a big phone you have...
Dan DC says:
Tea bagging your phone will be a thing now. Maybe they should patent it, "Drop to unlock"
HAH!!!!! Nice abs workout from keeping the laughter in on that one.....
Do piercings interfere with this method? I'm asking for a friend.
This and all the other ratchet comments. Lmao can't deal.
I still say it is a useless security feature. These are easily fooled, so anyone with a photograph of your nipple pretty much has full access.
And besides, how do we know nipple prints are as unique as finger prints?
Damn. That means ANYONE can get into my phone.
Sure you are glamrlama...lol
If you have a contest to give this away at some point, please be kind enough to include disinfectant.
Lmao! Best comment ever!
Glenn Correa says:
By the way, what does it look like while someone has it up to their ear trying to talk on it?
Depends what you mean by "ear".
Um, why would you talk to Phil's nipple?
Why wouldn't you
I never thought of it that way. Phil, please call me.
Hahahaha! I knew as soon I posted that, it was on...
A phone that can be unlocked with your nipples? SOLD!!
Waaaaay too much information
I think you guys need some nexus 5 news to report for something else to do.
I bet some other parts can be used...
Right, like a...... Toe.
It would be a great ice breaking question at a bar...and it could also make for a great snickers commercial (sometimes you have to get away)
Can you Face Unlock with your whole chest?
Oh Phil ...
Phil, you do have to turn that back in to HTC, right? Quick question: will you or will you not tell them about your little 'experiment'?
I can just see the confused look on the HTC rep's face now: "Huh....why does this phone smell like Axe?"
Should be a version of that Surface RT vs iPad commercial, but instead the HTC One Max vs iPhone 5s: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wE7AQY5Xk9w
Oh no, here we go again.
I'm sorry I don't have an SD card slot.
Oh snap, you have a fingerprint scanner too?
This isn't going to end well for me, is it?
Do you still think I'm pretty?
I lol'd all over myself when I read the title.
Do you need a wet-nap?
Alas it seems we've found the purpose of men's nipples: unlocking phones.
Something I really wanted to know but didn't know how to ask.....thanks Phil!
Good one Phil! This made my day.... Just got off work and was in line at Publix when I burst out laughing. Even the cashier wanted to see!
This is nothing new. I've been rubbing my phone on my nipple for years
I guess this job isn't all fun and games. Someone needs to do the "hard" news... Is it cold in here?
Does it work if you're lactating?
Tits or it didn't happen

61 comments, not a girl among them. No The nerd in the basement stereotype don't apply
Never had a need to lock my phone since cell phones were sold.
I suppose ones family and friends would be a factor or ones ability to set an expensive piece of equipment down and leave it.
What happened to face unlock?
Phil does it matter whether it's cold or not?
Can you unlock an HTC One with other people's nipples?
If android turns you on...

I was gonna use something else, but the sensor isn't big enough. Bazinga.
