There are virtually only two kinds of smartphones exist today: the iPhone and the Android phones. While there's only Apple on one side with its iPhone, there are tons of Android phones manufacturers on another side struggling to get the piece of the pie. One of the few survivors on this Android battlefield and claims the bigger portion of the pie is Samsung.

Starting out in the mobile phone business as a mere Apple's copycat, Samsung has grown to stand on its own with few great products but still doesn't have the self-confidence not to compare itself to Apple and not to use similar naming in the products.

But no matter how great the products are, they cannot escape the greatest flaw of all: the users. One of the most common problems that any smartphone user could have is forgetting the password or pattern to unlock the phone.

If you own a Samsung phone and you couldn't unlock it, what can you do? In this post we will introduce how to bypass/unlock Samsung galaxy S8/S7/S6/S5, Samsung Galaxy Note 8/7/6/5 with Gmail account.

Step on Using the Google Account to Unlock Samsung Phone

You can bypass the lock screen on your Samsung phone by using your Google account. Fortunately, you don't have to worry about not having a Google account linked to your phone since every Android phone has to be activated using a Google account.

First, turn on your Samsung smartphone and try any random lock pattern. Repeat the process five times by choosing Try Again and you will get the Forgot Pattern? option.

Depending on what Android model that powers your phone, you might get the option to choose Enter Google Account Details > Next or the screen where you could directly enter your Google credentials.

After bypassing the lock screen, you will need to draw a new pattern twice and confirm it. You will also need to enter a new four-digit backup PIN. This backup PIN can be the alternative to Google account to unlock your phone.

Please note that this method is working for Android 4.4 and below. If you've upgraded your phone to Lollipop (v. 5.0), you need to use factory reset to bypass the lock screen.
