Just shut up guys!, 16 Jun 2017Okay, lots of complaints right now due to the galaxy s5 "having ... moreSwipe down fingerprint is only on the home button. The 'guide' on the screen itself is not scanning your finger on the S5. Lol. It is there for the purpose telling you where to swipe your finger. Only the home button is doing the scanning.

This is not a disruptive technology that will change smartphones. I could care less. I prefer iris scanner on my 950XL. It isn't perfect nor as fast as the Samsung one, though samsung one seems to be defeated with some work.
