I regret that I bought the S10 +, Samsung didnt properly worked this fingerprint out. It didnt occur to them that people want to take care of their phones the best way they can and buying tempered glass or UV glass for S10 doesent work properly. They should have fitted in the optical fingerprint cause it accepts prints even through the tempered glass.
I have installed on my S10+ UV glass and I am having troubles alot.
Would be good if they come up with good solution for that.

Makes you wonder though... is it just Sammy fricking up or is EVERYONE affected but still silent/doesn't care (good luck Oppo/Vivo users :P however much I'm shilling for their devices) Not the most ancient of techs after all so the zits may only be showin' up now :D

Underdisplay finger print scanner whether it is optical or ultrasonic is simply garbage!!! why the heck it is needed? For just show off!!! My galaxy A50 is a device from 4 -5 years old technology cause I have to use password to unlock my phone. If I use Under display finger print scanner, I have to try 3 to 4 times to unlock my phone!!! This is disgusting. What is wrong with capacitive fingerprint scanner??? Is it not accurate and blazing fast??

Raear finger print scanners are much better

Sounds like a plan.

Another Apple strategy copied by a competitor.

...I guess those who want to unlock it won't heed their advice.

When Nokia 9P had problems with on screen fingerprint sensor they were torn apart here from Nokia haters,and so much hate is said here.I expect that same guys to speak same for Samsung(if they dare).

They should have retained the iris scanner. Much better than face unlock
