Google's enhanced security algorithms are what's causing slowdowns.

TruthBeTold, 08 Nov 2021Pathetic. And I'm not surprised. Instead of utilizing ... moreThe optical under display sensor on my OnePlus 7 Pro is very snappy and accurate. I feel no difference from the one on my iPhone 8 and Galaxy S21 Ultra.

Stondec100, 08 Nov 2021Not surprised by the issues, typical of Google phones. Plag... moreEvery company has it's problems, theres not as many "Sheep" out there for pixel devices as there are apple and Samsung so let's not take it there especially with the problems that persist with those devices and the sheep come to there defenses also, stop being a keyboard warrior and find something truly to either complain about or go do something positive and makes you happy at the same time. Good day to you.

Correction: "slow down is due to enhanced data collection algorithms"

It's not a bug, it's a feature!

Google assembling cheap parts to charge as if they were of good quality, the experiment failed them, so much. Mega hype with this pixel 6 seeiw to end up being the biggest failure of 2021

It has to make sure the fingerprints are sent right away to google servers after all.

They are advertising agency first and software second and everything deadlast.

Pathetic. And I'm not surprised. Instead of utilizing the perfect technology of back or side readers they chose this gimmicky crap and failed. The vanilla android is pretty horrid too btw, not sure what all the fuss is about. Had to install Nova launcher first time in 5 years. They also charged me 8% restocking fee to return that glitchy pos. Unheard of in the US. FU, you'll never see my money again.

I wonder why they didn't say : " you are scanning your fingerprint wrong". It worked well with Apple.

Not surprised by the issues, typical of Google phones. Plagued by a plethora of issues, yet the ever loyal sheep keep casting it as the best thing since sliced bread.

Sure google.

I call bullshit. This thing doesn’t work half of the time. I have the enter the pin everytime. No face unlock either. I feel as if i am back to 2011 when i had to enter pin. Hate this shit.

"enhanced security algorithms", LMMFAO, it's a 2D scanner. Basically no different than a xerox machine. They suck, they've always sucked and they will continue to suck. If they had to go with an FOD, they should've gone with ultrasonic. Also, I'd be curious to know what generation scanner they are using.

Heavy security my ASS!!!

Ultrasonic is faster and more secure then pixels optical FP scanner.

Sensor needs recalibration. Google gives tools for that if screen is replaced
