[Poll Results!] How are you finding the in-screen fingerprint reader on the Galaxy S10?
Samsung introduced an ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint reader with the Galaxy S10, eliminating the need to stretch to the rear of the device for biometric authentication. But, as is the case with anything new, it’s going to take some getting used to — and we want to know how you feel about it now, after less than a week’s worth of use, as that’s the best way to determine whether it’s living up to expectations.
Personally, I’m a big fan of it. Sure, it’s not as responsive as I’d have hoped, but Samsung said that’s something that will improve with future updates — so I can’t fault it. To have your say, be sure to cast a vote in the poll below, then feel free to expand on your response in the comments section. Come on, let’s get a conversation going! Oh, and as usual, we’ll be responding to all comments submitted.

And if your budget can’t quite stretch to the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ level of performance, have a read of our Galaxy S10e review — it’s the base model of the Galaxy S10 range, delivering a fantastic user experience, bundled in a near-identical shell, for a more reasonable price.
Results: So it seems the in-display fingerprint reader isn’t working great for everyone, as 47 percent voters say they don’t think it’s as responsive as they had hoped. Thankfully, it does get better with time, so we’re sure some of those voters will have a different opinion later on. 24 percent of voters, meanwhile, say the in-display fingerprint reader is great, and 20 percent aren’t willing to offer a verdict just yet. The remaining 10 percent of voters would rather see the fingerprint sensor moved to the back again.
