As others have mentioned, it's often easy to figure it out from the marks
left on the screen if you don't clean it often.
Additionally, as a small experiment, I set a fairly complicated pattern and
asked a co-worker to watch me quickly enter it once. He was able to
duplicate the pattern on his first try. I did not have it set to display the
pattern, he was just watching my finger. In my opinion, it's just easier to
observe and memorize a pattern than it is to observe and memorize several
rapidly typed numbers on these phones.
