    Hi,
    Just updated from a nexus 5 to galaxy S6 and wondering if there's any way to get the stock android lock screen to display?

    I need to use a pin due to work restrictions on the phone, so can't disable the normal lock screen to use an alternative widget - I've tried a few of these but just get two lock screens.

    I prefer the stock lock screen as there's more spacing between the numbers (easier for fat fingers)

    Phone isn't rooted. Android 5.1 using nova launcher

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks!

    Why not use your fingerprint to unlock?

    Tried the finger lock yesterday but ended up typing in the password most of the time. Could give it another try if I can't work around this.

    The fingerprint scanner works really well most of the time. Let me make a suggestion. You generally use the same finger to unlock the phone 90% of the time. For me it's my right thumb. You can add 4 fingerprints. I registered my right thumb twice and then did my left thumb and right index finger. When you do the dominant digit, use different angles and try to utilize your entire print. That way when you unlock, it will recognize it.

    I tried moving my thumb up and down on the scanner when registering it, thinking it'd have a full print. However when I went to unlock it my thumb was at an angle to the scanner, I don't know if this makes any difference?
    My concern is that our work policy will format the phone after 4-5 failed attempts (security policy). I'm not sure how this works with the finger print which then asks for the password but that's why I tend to prefer a pin
