Samsung is currently in the process of rolling out a new update for the Galaxy S10 that resolves one of the biggest annoyances on its new-generation flagship: the inconsistent experience with the fingerprint sensor.
The Galaxy S10 embraces a completely new approach for Samsung’s high-end phone lineup, as it ditches the fingerprint reader on the back for a version that’s embedded into the screen.
In other words, to unlock a Galaxy S10, you just have to touch the screen right on the sensor, and this thing should work even if you have a screen protector applied.
But as many discovered the hard way, the experience with the Galaxy S10 fingerprint sensor has been inconsistent, to say the least. While the unlocking sometimes happened almost instantly, it often failed or took more than a couple of seconds.
