    Default Fingerprint scanner and skin tone

    OK, let's just be honest here — skin color.

    How's it working for everyone? For my pasty self, it's not bad. But I am but one white dude, ya know?

    Heh. Yeah. Figured we should check. I seriously doubt it wasn't tested with numerous skin tones, ya know?

    I am moderately pasty and the accuracy on the fingerprint scanner has been great!

    When i first tried it i had problems with it, but it was because i wanted to press my finger to the screen instead of sliding . Other than that it worked .

    Actually, I asked because someone who was in a position to see a bunch of folks trying the fingerprint scanner asked if we'd look into it. So, I asked you guys.

    If you think anyone's being racist here, well, you're wrong and are just looking for problems.
