It isn't but clear whether or not or not this fingerprint scanner concern is widespread, however we have seen a video discussing the feature's state of affairs.

PocketNow reported a 50 % success price in unlocking the Xperia Z5 Premium with the scanner. The publication additionally went on to state that the speed might be as little as two occasions out of 10.

Based mostly on the video, the fingerprint scanner appears so unreliable that it simply did not make sense at occasions to have the feature activated. For a time, registered fingerprints appear to work simply superb, then for some odd cause, the device refuses to acknowledge them.

For the meantime, the video steered an additional step to by some means make the fingerprint scanner work higher. "[T]he scanner must be clear. Take this in a strict approach. Not speaking about thick grease or dust, we’re speaking about earlier fingerprints from a single touch that may render it unusable."

However do not anticipate the step to work whereas utilizing the phone underwater or if in case you have moist, and even moist, fingers or phone.
