> With passcode unlock, getting the password out of you will take some more effort.

Given that there are two people, capable of violence, against the phone owner I'm not sure that getting the password is going to be that much trouble.

Forcing someone to put their finger on a phone is a matter of seconds. No matter how you put it, getting a password is harder and lengthier.

Getting a password requires consent, even if it's under duress. Getting your finger doesn't require you to agree with anything.
