    I have been thinking if there would be any feature that I would want in a year or so now that I have this Lumia 1520 which is one awesome phone.

    I can think of making it water proof - that would be a killer feature. And then I thought finger print scanner.

    I'm curious if the camera could be used, with a software update, as a finger print scanner? Is that possible?

    Anyway, it's just a question. I love this phone. It's so freaking big, and that's cool since I consume a lot of media and do a lot of reading for my phone.

    I doubt if this could ever happen , since camera module isn't designed for fingerprint scanning , for that phone requires proper finger print scanning hardware and drivers with supported soc , drivers on platform , maybe wp 8.1 open gates for finger print scanning , that will be for new hardware \phones .I wish they could add face unlock one found on android from ICS. Hope you are enjoying with your Lumia 1520 :)

    I think you can use the camera too do finger print detection, using some sort of image recognition. But it won't be very accurate and will drain resources. So yes, I second Himanshu. With additional hardware in Wp8.1 phones, it maybe a possibility.
