Do you like in-screen fingerprint sensors?

In-screen fingerprint sensors are now the norm for high-end smartphones, but just a couple of short years ago, they were a completely new feature that we had to get used to.

The technology continues to be pretty hit-or-miss depending on what phone you're using, but the cool factor of having biometric authentication hidden underneath the display is still pretty cool.

Some of our AC forum members recently got to talking about their thoughts on in-screen fingerprint sensors, saying:

OK, so I have only had my 10 for a month or so but I can't be the only one who still just presses the sensor every now and then when the phone is in front of them to feel the sense of satisfaction of how easy it is to log in to the phone now. You have your thumb print at holding angle, you forefinger at straight on and 45 degrees for when it is lying on the desk. That frustration for the first...


I like the on-screen fps on my S10+. It is very responsive.

I prefer the rear FPS of my Note 9. Much more consistent than that of my Note 10 Plus ☹️


Hopefully they do release the 2nd gen on the Note 20 and it really is better.
