Did I say on body protection yup I sure did say that...  This is what GOOGLE is adding in it's SMART LOCK  5.1 update:  from what I take on it when the phone is anywhere on your person meaning in your pocket in your hand the phone will unlock itself no Code is necessary..

Not exactly what Smart Lock is, it is the opposite actually, meaning it will automatically lock itself if it detects that it has been set down (i.e. stops moving).  It doesn't unlock only locks.

Well maybe when I read the Description I miss took what the meaning of the Feature is sometimes you have to read,  then read again and then Read again  of what there trying to parlay to us customers, I get what there saying now it would be nice to test the feature as Kellex mentions on one of my Devices.. but for now I'm happy with what I currently have..

I read about it last Friday, the usefulness depends on how you use your phone, for office types that set their phone down on their desk a lot may not be as useful as the teenager who is holding and using it. For me I think it would depend on how much control you have over how fast it locks after it detects non-movement.

Yea if your in an environment where your phone being looked upon by others it would be a Very good feature to have.. This new feature would be nice for my Niece and her Husband as they have 3 Girls..  There oldest is 13 and her twin sisters are year behind in age and each have there own phones.. and friends they call..

To add:  The last time I seen there Dad the Gray was really showing in his head I told him you doing ok with that and he said no not really but you can clearly see why it's there.. he laughed and said you can have some of it if want it. I smiled back and said Na I stay the way I am..
