    I don't use any sort of password entry for my phone. Annoys me. :P.

    It is just as easy as swiping the screen. No accidental turn on from the screen swipe. I scanned two thumbs and right index finger and can use any of them at any angle, just swipe down. I have it set so it doesn't actually require a finger until it is idle for 10 minutes, screen swipe wakes it during the 10 minutes. I see absolutely no reason not to unless you are simply to lazy to swipe your fingers 10 times to set it up. Swipe at every imaginable angle you might use during the training and it works fricking great.

    I don't simply due to annoyance... For you it works but I use my phone a ton during the day. Times it's on the desk and I just swype and unlock it and do whatever.. No worry about doing it properly on the button. One fail is enough to annoy me.. Especially since my phone is always on me so the security is a moot point.

    As I said.. That's for me. It's cool if you feel different or have different needs . Just isn't my cup of tea.. Locks for my phone never have been.

    Hello, I'm having trouble with my fingerprint scanner. After I register my fingerprint it only works once I turn the phone off and back on. After the initial fingerprint scan if I lock it and go back to the home screen the phone no longer asks for the fingerprint but asks me to swipe to unlock. Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Or do I have a defective device

    Try following the below screenshots. Ensure you have your lock screen set to fingerprint.

    Thanks for your reply. I originally followed all of the steps but no luck. Another used just created a thread with the same problem as mines. Hopefully we can get this resolved... thanks again for the screen shots.

    No bc I'm using a gear fit, so it automatically unlocks the device when held together. Pretty cool

    Yup the guys in the other thread sound like exactly the same problem. Seems "quirky" which would bother the heck out of me. Had a Lenova laptop that had the same kind of fingerprint scanner. The only thing that saved it is that it would take either password or scan. Got to the point where I would not even try the fingerprint scan. Was not worth the effort...just used password.

    I plan on keeping mine on. I used it the second I got my s5 and never turned it off.

    Well, as long as you don't have any personal information on it, then it's no worries. The finger print scanner works very well on the N4. I like to lock my phone since I use it to pay bills. It seems that they improved it from the S5 which received a ton of complaints.

    Perhaps those not planning on using the fingerprint scanner are planing on simply using a password. If my options are a fingerprint scanner that only works if I set up the phone so that it locks immediately vs using a password and setting up the phone to lock after 5 min. dormant or 10 min dormant that is a tough choice. If the fingerprint scanner worked with a set delay then I would opt for the fingerprint scanner for sure. But that does not appear to be the case with this fingerprint scanner. I am just going to have to get the phablet in hand and decide once I can actually see what is what. Without the phablet in hand I am simply not able to decide. I am not particularly thrilled with the idea of the phone having to lock immediately in order to use the fingerprint scanner, not at first blush anyway.

    Maybe big fingers are best..works flawlessly for me...also use your index finger for best response....the thumb is the worst response
