    Oh I meant the fact that with increased training, when you launch face unlock/unlock the phone it takes time to load the database of faces it stored before it activates the camera.

    I havent tested this theory myself yet.

    I thought the same, however a few people above disproved that theory. In other news, up to 13 stars!

    lol. 13 is better than one or two, but maybe people just aren't noticing the delay. As in, it got progressively slower and they never noticed it changed?:thinking:

    Yes, I'm having the same issue. Anyone figure it out? I think its just that it puts the camera out of memory and has to load it up as we install other apps, etc.

    Ok I think I've done it but need further testing ...
    Only possible on rooted devices ..
    Go to folder
    /data/data/com.android.faceunlock/shared_prefs/
    in your root enabled file browser (I used es file explorer)
    Open the file inside
    Edit delay number to 1
    Save file
    Then change permissions to read only by all
    And ownership to root
    Go 1 level up and do the same with the shared_prefs folder (perm and owner)
    And again 1 up and same settings to the com.android.faceunlock

    Come back here and report if it improved


    Not sure if all the permissions must be like that but I went safe on it since file got replaced first few times I tried
    Please do.come back here to report if it worked for you too

    My delay was 1730 after changing to 1 it worked like charm once but then it changed to ~700(file got updated again) then I've changed the settings of files and folders to present override and now I did not experience the lag yet :D


    Let me know if you need more info or more detailed instructions 0,O

    Also I feel I should mention ive done it on moto g 1st gen
    And that minimum time for it to open is same as time it takes to swap from back to front camera in your stock camera app plus time it takes to detect light conditions and in dark places it takes longer to do that :)
