    How often does your fingerprint sensor work on your S8/+?
    Should read 'tries'.

    Well, as of lately, thankfully more often than not. But I know what you mean when it stops working, I have to go into the settings and toggle the fingerprint scanner motion on and off.

    The only time it fails for me is when I get my finger positioning wrong (i.e., I only cover part of the sensor).

    IF anyone knows how for me to edit that poll title, please let me know. I can edit the post, but not the poll it seems. I TRIED but couldn't manage to find a way.

    I have an issue where mine FPS will periodically completely stop working until I reboot the phone no matter how I positioned my finger. I did some research and found that this issue has something to do with the fingerprint gestures being turned on. If I turn off fingerprint gestures, the FPS starts working again. I can even turn fingerprint gestures back on and the FPS will work again for a little while. I am keeping the fingerprint gestures off for now until this issue gets fixed.

    Yes, that's the infrequent issue that I talked about as well. Sometimes my fingerprint scanner will stop working sporadically and I have to go into the settings menu, fingerprint scanner, toggle it on and off. That hasn't happened in a while though.

    Absolutely hate the fingerprint sensor location BUT in fairness it works 100% of the time for me. I saved 2 fingerprints for the same finger and that helps a lot with reliability

    No problems at all here on my S8+. And, I'm apparently one of the few who have no problem with the FPS location. I've had mine since launch day and I don't even think twice when using it. My finger just goes there naturally now.

    But to put that in context, I found the FPS of the Pixel XL to be too low for me.

    as long as I remember to press down hard-ish on it as I have a waterproof case on my s8, I have no problems with it!

    It's not working? There have been a few votes. Hmmm...I wonder if it's because I misspelled tries. lol.

    DOH! I must have hit view results instead of vote. Worked this time. But there are only a few votes? This thread is long.

    Yea, I think people are posting and not actually voting. But it's still feedback. I'd be curious to see the numbers tho.

    Sometimes, like 3 days once or so, the FPS for me will completely stop working for no reason. The only fix is a restart. Other than this annoying issue, with a proper case, the FPS accuracy is good.

    However, while the accuracy is good, it is slower compared to my U11 and OnePlus 5. Hopefully we can see better ones in Note 8!

    I use Tapatalk and rarely use the website. Voting is not available in the app, so posting works for me

    I'm using the app to access this website and it apparently doesn't let me view/vote polls.

    My answer would be just about never. I have to go in to settings, erase one of the fingerprint profiles saved, set up a new one, and then it works fine for a day or two.
