    Default trouble using fingerprint with otterbox

    I bought the galaxy s5 on release day and have been very impressed with the phone coming from an HTC one x. Anyways, I bought an otterbox with it and quickly realized problems using the fingerprint sensor. In order to unlock you have to drag your finger down the screen, but when you do the edge of the otterbox makes getting your whole finger on the sensor very difficult. The only solution I have found is to very carefully roll your finger from front to back across the sensor. But this is very difficult to do with two hands and totally impossible to do with one hand. Aside from this i am very happy with the phone though. Anyone got any ideas? Thanks in advance.
