    Question Ballistic cases interfere with fingerprint scanner?

    The title says it all. Many of the cases out there look like they would make it difficult to run your finger over the home button fingerprint scanner. Anybody experience issues?

    I got my S5 on Saturday at Best Buy. Sadly, it does not fit in the same leather hip holster as my S2 did, so I need to find a good shell/holster or shell/case combo soon (I was using a Body Glove kickstand shell and a leather hip case similar to this). I don't trust it in my back pocket!

    No problem using the fingerprint scanner with the Incipio DualPro.

    The problem with most who complain about the fingerprint reader not working with cases is that they are mashing their fingers against it. All you need is a very light touch.
