    While trying to clean up some files I ran across the .face files. Anyone know what they are and what happens if I delete them?

    I've never heard of them. My first guess would be face unlock but that's based simply on the name

    Is it on the sd card?

    From what I gathered, they are little thumbnails based on the face recognition of the camera and other downloaded images.
    I opened a few of my .face files and oddly, one was a thumbnail image of part of a picture that I took of a vehicle...the thumbnail was the wheel of the vehicle.
    Another .face file I opened was a thumbnail of again, the wheel, of a car wallpaper I had downloaded off of Zedge.
    Wierd, I know, right? Why? I dont know. Can you delete them? I don't see why not, I deleted one of the thumbnails and I went back to the picture of where it came from, and there was no difference.

    Edit: found this too:

    Maybe it views the circular shape of the tire as the face its looking for in the picture

    Either way, should be safe to delete
