    Maybe this question is a little strange but I am wondering if it's just me... If I try to use my 6P's fingerprint scanner to unlock my phone soon after taking a shower, it doesn't work. Obviously, it's after I dry off. I don't take particularly long showers so it's not like the skin on fingers is noticeably shriveling up. I assume the skin on my fingers is indeed shriveled just a little bit - I mean invisible to the naked eye. After 10-15 minures, it seems to act normal again.

    I'm just wondering if other people have this problem? Just curious.

    Yes. Any kind of moisture on your finger will prevent scan.

    I would also add -

    Is the phone in the bathroom while you are showering? Do you take steamy showers? Is the phone laying face-up or face-down?

    It's just a thought, but maybe it is the scanner itself which is being affected by your shower...

    If your fingers still look like raisins the scan will fail, no 2 ways about it. Yes, mine fails when I try to use it shortly after showering or washing dishes.

    Do your nose or another part of your body as a backup print.

    No - phone is in another room. It sounds like it's just the impact of any moisture in your skin.

    LOL, that was funny. There is always the pin if finger scanner doesn't work.
    Anyway, I just got out of the shower and no issues right after drying my hands. I guess if you stay in there for hours then maybe you will have issues.

    This is why I never shower.

    The family complains, I stick to furniture, but my phone ALWAYS works.
