So you have to turn the display on to read your finger? Doesn't that defeat the purpose? I much prefer a fast fingerprint scanner on the back.
Well, that's actually amazing.
And is not really that slow either.
S6's fingerprint sensor is quite slow, but with a custom rom it becomes one of the fastest.
I think that with a bit of optimizations, Vivo's fingerprint sensor would become really fast.
I was hoping that with this new technology we can unlock our phone using FPS in any part of the screen but after watching the video i'm certain that only one specific part of the screen that can be use to unlock it...
at first it is slow bcoz initially you have to register your fingerprint on screen. after that it will be fast to lock or unlock the phone. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=m3zu-ykbjf4
Apple is now going to ditch Touch ID fingerprint scanner and instead they gonna use 3D facial recognition to unlock iPhone 8 from any angle , fingerprint scanning technology is now old , on screen off screen in home button whatever it is it's now old technology ...
After all the hype - it seems that it sucks!
It doesn't operate well!
I can already see vivo's advertisements about this phone in the Philippines tho.
The video I saw was few minutes long. Not just seconds.
I believe it's a hands-on as well.
That's why I'm not surprised when I saw this on GSMA.
ollyb1, 04 Jul 2017would of been better if you can touch anywhere on the screen to do thatYes but the phone wil be very expensive
Xcode, 04 Jul 2017I don't know why this got so much attention when it's clearly still not ready yet. Because it's a new idea but it still in development stage
would of been better if you can touch anywhere on the screen to do that
Br0wn5ugar, 04 Jul 2017Well done on not buying a phone which isn't released and is clearly a demonstration model. Bravo!I'm clearly aware of that. Duhh. Thank you so much for telling me it is not released yet. I couldn't guess at all and might rush to the nearest Vivo store right now to try it out. -_-
How one of the biggest technology company cant put this feature on its next flagship model ?
Luxor, 04 Jul 2017It worked but it is slow. Thats why Apple and Samsung not rushing this yet. After working for ... moreWell done on not buying a phone which isn't released and is clearly a demonstration model. Bravo!
For the record, Vivo is only the first company to show the technology in lackluster format. They're not first with implementation by any stretch of the imagination.
Samsung has been working on prototypes long before Vivo's announcement last week, which is common sense being that the Galaxy S8 was scheduled to have it.
Even Apple, which is the least innovative of almost all companies, has been working with the technology.
It worked but it is slow. Thats why Apple and Samsung not rushing this yet. After working for many years with home button sensors thag works super fast, suddenly making a transition to this NEW high tech embedded fingerpeint sensor BUT super slow; i dont think so. No thank you. Nope. Not buying it.
Don't see how people can complain, this is a tech demo not a product out to market.
abigfanoftechs, 04 Jul 2017Because they're the only one showing it. Plus, they said it's a prototype. Has Apple or Samsu... moreIt is called ignorance my friend. If Apple was the one to announce the exact same scanner opinions will be too different. It is a double standard to judge things. This is the reality of people.
