Samsung finally fixed one of the Galaxy S10’s biggest problems

Whether we’re talking about facial recognition or fingerprint sensor technology, the thing smartphone users care about most when unlocking their devices is speed. That said, the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor on Samsung’s new Galaxy S10 smartphones left a lot to be desired.

Embedded into the display itself, the fingerprint sensor, while admittedly cool, was plagued with all sorts of problems early on. Aside from successful efforts to fool the sensor, users complained that the feature was unreliable far too often. What’s more, even when the device accurately recognized an authorized user, the unlocking speed was said to be frustratingly slow.
