    One thing I've noticed when at the gym you need to make sure your finger is not all sweaty otherwise it won't work

    I plan to keep the feature on. It's worked for me everytime. I have registered four fingers. Its best to use as many angles as you possibly can per finger.

    How did you set it to unlock with a swipe for 10 minutes then go to fingerprint? I would LOVE to have mine work that way but can't figure out a way to do it?
    go to: Settings>Device tab>Lock Screen> Secured lock time > then set it to what you want.

    Idk if it's just my bad luck or the fact that my phone seems to have more issues than its worth, but the fingerprint scanner barely works for me. I'm keeping it on right now because I kind of like it, despite it being annoying as heck. I registered two thumbs and my right index, even swiped at different angles hoping to bypass having any issues if I was holding the phone differently at the time of unlocking, and it's a pain. I got locked out of my phone and while it was locked I didn't have the option to input my regular password. Wonder why that's even available if you can't use it. Bummed out man.

    The only time I find it doesn't work is when--because of old habits and stupidity--I swipe the screen and sort of miss the button. That's hardly, of course, the scanner's fault. Otherwise, it's been quick, easy and reliable.

    Big thumbs up(no pun intended!) to the fingerprint scanner. I got my N4 3 days ago, and set up the fingerprint scan for security(out of curiosity). Since then, it's worked 9 times out of 10. I'm quite impressed, to be honest!

    It's awesome just make sure to register your finger one time swiping normally and one time swiping horizontally, that's what I did and works great!

    I just tried out the advice on here and registered two different registries for my thumb, one vertical the other horizontal as noted above and its worked flawlessly thus far. Thanks!

    I quite like this feature, not the best implementation but it has worked well thus far.

    Maybe big fingers are best..works flawlessly for me...also use your index finger for best response....the thumb is the worst response
    I have the opposite issue, either index fingers didn't work like 90% of the time but thumbs work best for me. It is a little quirky but I use it as I'd rather swipe a thumb then enter in a password.

    Likewise. If I used a password I would use a pattern lock.

    when I tried it I had about a 65%-70% success rate, which is good but I dont lock my phone and decided it is easier to unlock my phone just by swiping up.

    Did you try registering the same finger multiply times and doing it at different angles each time? If not maybe you should exchange your phone for another.

    my success rate went from 60% to 95% by removing the case on my phone and re-registering the fingers, and then putting the case back on.

    Since the phone came with three, I set up a bunch of different options. At the end and what I used for maybe half a day, was two for same thumb, and one for index. I swiped at every angle. Straight down, sort of sideways, etc. I even held the phone in the position I'd be one handedly be unlocking it in, thinking to bypass any issues and still no dice

    Once I got it set up, it was okay. Pretty accurate, but most of the time I had to swipe more than once to get it right. It was definitely my fault, user error, by not swiping the whole button or not at the angle I used to register the finger. It became more of a problem when I had to swipe multiple times. So just went back to swiping the lock Screen. It's a cool feature, just not worth the effort for me.

    I've been debating whether to use it or not..? Sometimes it is really difficult to use.
