I don't like rear mounted fingerprint scanner.i think it's not practical.if samsung does that after years of samsung i will buy a phone with home button on the front.i just hate the back fingerprint scanner
Dear Samsung plz don't do this it well be a big disappointment..
Why people complain about back fp so much its not that bad your finger naturally rest on the scanner its also quick when pulling phone out of pocket it has just one draw back you cant unlock your phone when its on a table and I bet you almost always pick up your phone to use it other than that no problem
Five Star, 16 Dec 2016Huawei have the fastest fingerprint scanners in the mobile industry. The suppler of the finger print scanner in Huawei's products are from the Swedish market leaders "fingerprint cards"
The scanner is identical to other in Chinese smartphone brands as well. Top product.
Samsung should choose FPC by all means to make iPhone and other phones fingerprint scanner seem slow.
SS needs this to be a hit.

It seems Samsung wants you to use the iris scanner by all means. I'd have preferred the onscreen fingerprint scanner.
But.. What people looking for Samsung is their front-mounted fingerprint sensor. Just hope this isn't true
Claudiu.Lucian, 16 Dec 2016Haha and people mocked Google Pixel for having rear fingerprint sensor :)What are you about? No one mocked the pixel for rear fingerprint scanners. nexuses always had them, like the Huawei 6P and LG 5x.
The pixel got mocked becuase of its massive bezels and dumb pricing.

Probably the worse move ever to put a finger print sensor at the back. I hope this does not happen
Good! I had an LG G5 (and plan to get another one, the wide angle camera is awesome) and the rear sensor was far more ergonomic to operate than a front mounted one. Now rocking an LG G3 and it's the same with the volume controls, nice positioning. Annoying they moved them to the sides on the G5. Hope Samsung put the sensor and volume on the back.
Im glad that I stopped being a Sammy fan there so much better phones\companies than Sammy. If you guy are debating of switching or dropping it you should you'll never look back
