    Hi,
    I have a white pearl galaxy s6. I would like to apply a black carbon fiber skin on it and be able to use the fingerprint scanner.
    Is there a special sticker for the home button?
    Can I paint the home button in black with some kind of ink?
    Any other solutions?
    Thank you

    If you do stuff like that to the home button i doubt the finger print scanner will still work. Paint or an opaque sticker would cover up the sensor.

    I have seen some home button stickers for the iphone 6 that allow you to use the Touch ID, I don't know if it is the same technology here.

    Welcome as a new member. I don't know much about Samsungs but I believe they use a different technology. I've just tried holding a piece of thin paper over the fingerprint sensor of my iPhone 5s, and I was surprised to find that, although it said Try Again once or twice, the phone did open.

    Depends on the sticker I guess. A sticker thin enough and made of something conductive could probably work. But paint? Seriously doubt that one.
