    Well, that's one persons opinion. Others have reported it not working so well. Guess you'll just have to see for yourselves.

    Most are saying it works well as long as you scan it properly.

    Apparently you need to tap the screen and it supposed to work very well.
    If you moosh your thumbprint into the screen too hard it's not surprising it doesn't work.

    It is pretty finicky, IMHO. I find it not as accurate nor as reliable as a rear FPS.

    Well, people complained the iPhone one didn't work well, till people learned how to use it correctly. I am expecting the same from this as well. I mean, we see videos of people showing it working great out there. With normal FPS sensors, its recommended to move your finger around when scanning so it grabs different parts of your finger to allow it to unlock more reliably.

    Yeah with any new tech there is bound to be human error. People will learn but Samsung can only explain it on the phone how to set it up. If people don't follow.. well.. that's on them.

    Well, so far, the only one here who actually has the phone says it's finicky. Maybe he's not using it right, or maybe it will be improved with software updates, or maybe it's just not going to work well for some people. Jury still out on that one.

    It’s first gen so it won’t be perfect but it will do its job 99% of the time I’m sure

    There is definitely a learning curve with the under glass FPS. It will take some time for me to get used to it and hopefully should become easier. The real PITA is finding the spot to rest your finger when the display is off!

    Additionally, I hope that Samsung keeps improving this with some software updates. I have received one update and that did improve the recognition somewhat.

    It's first gen, so it's going to be hit and miss until people figure out the most effective way to use it, which probably means using it in a very straight forward, muscle memory type way.

    Face ID improved tremendously with the XS. I suspect the Note 10 and other fall releases will nail it.

    Couldn't they incorporate a position indicator as part of the AOD?

    After watching the video, it seems the trick is to tap the screen very lightly and briefly. This is going to be a new approach to many people who are used to more firm fingerprint presses and leaving the finger on the screen for a longer period of time. I'm thinking it actually will end up working quite well once we get used to the way it needs to be used.

    From the reviews I've seen, it works very well. Again it's a tap, and not a hard prolonged press. Like others point out it will just take time to learn it.

    They could, but I assumed they didn't because of screen burn-in...

    I'm assuming they could have the pixels move around a bit to avoid that but not move enough to make the location inaccurate.

    There is a update available now which makes it more reliable. We have them at work and for me works every time as long as you hit the correct spot. Also Samsung says they are going to add a position marker to AOD as an option.

    This concerns me. It is a bit uncomfortable trying to twist my thumb low enough to reach where the fps would be. Probably just going to have to live with 2 handed use for a while.

    Is it as secure as an iris scanner?

    You can use any finger. Scan the thumb, and your index finger.

    In order to use my thumb, I have to twist it uncomfortably. I can only go with 2 handed use for as long as I own it.

    We can hope that the Note 10 will fix this.
