Bug lets you bypass Samsung Galaxy S3's lockscreen for full phone access
| by Nikhil Subramaniam |
It seems Samsung has to follow suit with almost everything Apple does. We have already seen a couple of ways to bypass the lockscreen on any iDevice running iOS 6.1, and after it was revealed yesterday that the Galaxy Note 2's lockscreen can be briefly bypassed to access the home screen, a major bug has now been found on Samsung’s flagship, the Galaxy S3.
