    I downloaded the update available yesterday. To my surprise/dismay/anger, my phone's unlock method is now inconsistent, but somehow pattern unlock is primary and my fingerprint is secondary (according to settings).

    Before, fingerprint was my primary unlock method with a pattern backup. It's still the same post-update, but now, half the time it accepts my fingerprint. The other half the time, when I put my finger on the home button, it goes DIRECTLY to pattern unlock. WTF son?!

    Before the update, if it didn't recognize my fingerprint after 3 attempts, it would go to pattern unlock, which is fine. Now it goes directly to pattern unlock when I place my finger on the home button. It's doing this about 60%-70% of the time. I tried deleting my fingerprints and re-adding them. I've even done a full reset and restore. Nothing worked. The phone now sees the pattern unlock as my primary unlock method with fingerprint as a backup. No matter how many times I've tried to change this, it is not working.

    Before this update, the phone was damn near perfect for my needs. I had little to no complaints. Post update this is very inconsistent and frustrating as now unlocking the phone is a 2-hand process. Pissed to high hell.

    Updated today. Lost the ability to unlock the lockscreen with fingerprints. Have to key in the pin. Anyone else?
    Yeah, this happened to me as well. Highly pissed.

    Was this the 6.0.1 update or a patch of some sort?

    Not sure how they qualify it, but I call it an update.

    Apparently everyone is not having this issue, but proceed with caution.

    I did the update last night and I don't notice anything different. We'll see what the battery life is like today. I'll try to keep it off the wireless charger.

    I'm having the same issue as others concerning the finger print sensor and lock screen.. I wonder if the update/change in screen sensitivity has directly affected the finger print sensor sensitivity?

    Not sure if this is a new feature, but under battery usage if i clicked on facebook or any app I had downloaded i was able to optimize for less battery usage, after i did it the option disappeared and I don't know how to change it back incase anyone wants to try.

    So I used the Samsung+ app to do a live chat with an agent. Since I did a factory reset to try to resolve the issue, they recommended that I take the phone to Best Buy and have the Samsung folks there do "something" (I forget what she called it). I'm hoping that works. Otherwise what? Replacement phone???

    Any chance this might fix the SD card issue?

    Ordered the Edge S7 Edge Unlocked 935F.

    Do I first turn on without my AT&T sim to get initial updates or can I start with my sim installed?

    Nope. Even after the first time, fingerprint doesn't unlock lockscreen for ne. Takes me to keypad for pin. Fingerprint still works with Samsung pay and signing into websites via stock Internet app. Just won't unlock lockscreen. Am I the only one?
    Then go your Lockscreen settings and redo the process of selecting the unlock option. If your fingerprints work with the rest then it must be related to the Unlock options.

    I just installed mine today, took awhile to do, but so far so good... no issues with fingerprint lock screen for me. I'm really hoping this fixes the wifi issues I've been having lately at home. No wifi issues anywhere but home, but no one else at home with other phones (6 phones) are having any issues but me :/ no connectivity every time I turn around and disabling/enabling wifi for it to work again. Annoying as hell!!

    This doesn't work. I've gone as far as to do a factory reset, but the phone insists upon showing pattern as the primary unlock method and the fingerprint as the secondary. I am highly pissed about this.

    AARRGG....Please post back here and let us know what they determine. I like the less sensitive screen but not at the expense of the finger print sensor..

    Update: I'm thinking the problem might be Nova. I don't know what Nova has to do with the lock screen, but when I am having the problem, Nova is the default launcher... and the problem is happening at a high clip... maybe 95% of the time. When I switch over to Touchwiz, the fingerprint unlocks the phone 100% of the time.

    I updated and I use Nova. Mine seems to be working fine with the fingerprint sensor. I only get the keypad lock screen on reboots. Just and FYI

    On the initial boot up after the update mine still showed the SD card notification... quick swipe away and it doesn't show up again until you reboot.
