Right with you now. But can't do anything. Unless phone is unlocked.

In what way does it make you uncomfortable??

They can be activated but not turned off once activated so I wouldn't necessarily worry about this feature. Torch is understandably something you may wish to turn on without unlocking.

Nfc would require a password or fingerprint to authorize a wireless payment. What's the actual feature that is worrying you about this?

There is a setting for it. You can turn on those network stuffs but can't turn them off while your phone is locked.

This guy right here is absolutely right. Having this feature allows me to turn on mobile data then use Samsung Pay w/o unlocking the phone. (P/s, I have turned of Samsung Pay on home screen because it contradicts with the gesture function).
