    It will take time. It's new tech. That's the price for early adoption. This is precisely why people skip the first edition of something. This is why I will skip the first galaxy fold. That crazy new.

    The fingerprint while not perfect or as fast as a dedicated spot is decent. For me it works most of the time on the first try. But I'm getting used to it. I'm sure Samsung will improve it with software updates. Is it for everyone. No and some will not enjoy it. But I have faith it will improve. If not then next go round I'll vote with my wallet and not purchase.

    I'm glad I decided to wait until launch day to get mine. Hopefully the patch will fix the issues people are seeing. reddit, XDA and Phandroid are all up-in-arms over the quality of the FPS. I know there's a learning curve here so i'm still reserving judgment.

    This has been said but ot fixed my problem, register your thumb as two separate fingers and also be sure to read the on screen prompts shen it tells you to place thumb in seperate positions.

    iJustine just posted a video on Twitter showing that she couldn't get it unlocked in 7 or 8 tries. I'm glad I didn't preorder this phone now.

    I'll decide for myself. Maybe she did it wrong eight times in a row

    I keep looking for video from users showing how it works. I'm thinking about cancelling my order. I still have that option.

    Yeah. I'm going to wait until the second generation of ultrasonic fingerprint sensors before buying one a phone that comes with it.

    I'm glad I didn't do my usual impulse phone upgrade this time around.

    I think I'm getting the hang of it. First, I removed the protective film (what some call a screen protector). I scanned both thumbs twice. The trick is to put your thumb flat on it and not press it as you would a button. I wanted to love this phone. There is hope yet. It sure works well with Sprint in an area where other Sprint phones have failed me.

    Yeah, I doubt someone who's been reviewing phones for 10 years does technology wrong.

    I think everyone needs to take it easy. There is a learning curve for sure. But also give Samsung some time to send more updates. The phone isn't technically even out yet and people are screaming that the sky is falling lol.
    I don't see anyone screaming anything. People - who already have the phone - are saying the FPS doesn't seem to be working so great. That's all. They paid for the phone, they are entitled to give their feedback - good and bad. I guarantee that people who paid a lot of money for their phone really don't want to be back here saying the FPS is not the best. I understand why people who haven't received theirs yet might not want to hear the bad, but don't we expect those who got it already to give their first impressions?

    Let's just hope that more practice, and maybe software updates, can improve on those first impressions significantly and the problem is not with the technology itself. This is just the beginning of the story.

    Devils advocate. Her 10 years of reviewing wouldn't apply though since this is new tech. She has to learn like the rest of us. And I have watched numerous reviewers where they spit out wrong facts. Or describe something wrong. Problem with a lot of reviewers is they are in such a hurry to get a video out to get the views they can sometimes miss something.

    I deleted my first FP scan and did a new one. Second attempt works way better.

    Maybe you have advice for others on getting consistent results? Or maybe you just happen to have a great thumb for ultrasonic! :-)

    Bro, no disrespect, but you've been threatening to cancel your order all day. I'm not sure if you're trying to convince yourself to do it or need reassurance from the forum that you should do it.

    I would say cancel if you are this much on the fence. That's my opinion.

    Performance/reliability consistency issues are not good.

    Firm press consistant opening
    When first set up move your thumb around like the scanner says , maybe my thumb is ultrasonic ready

    Is that because you're all thumbs?

    I saw a video where the FPS worked amazingly well. The trick seems to be that you just lightly tap the right area on the screen. You do not have to press hard or long. That worked perfectly for the guy in the video.

    That only applies to the face unlock feature, not the FPS. Or at least that's my reading of this.
    That's correct I was just pointing out if you wanted a more secure option without using the fps that's probably your best option.

    Don't worry about what I'm going to do. I'm looking for input on the FPS, that's it. Just because I don't get all giddy over this and am willing to walk away, well that's a good thing. I'm happy that Samsung is giving me time to see how this FPS will turn out, as the FPS is a main draw for me... So yes, I'm on the fence and my time is running out to be able to cancel with Samsung, we all know how fun it will be to deal with Samsung customer service for a return. I'm not threatening to cancel, I'm asking questions and doing my research to decide if I need to cancel, this is one of my research spots, sorry if it rubs you wrong.
