3rd party cases such as otterbox or body glove impede the motion of whatever finger you use to unlock your device. The reason being that all of the cases have a ridge the causes your finger to move up premature to the scanner recognizing your finger print. Although it will work in some cases, it is not nearly as efficient as if you were using no case at all. I have already contacted a samsung representative as well as otterbox to see what is going to be done about this seemingly noticeable flaw.
So bottom line, if you are going to buy a 3rd party full protection case for your galaxy s5, take note that the finger print scanner will produce unsatisfactory results.Let me know if you guys have found a case that takes into consideration the fingerprint scanner, or what ways you have remedied this problem.
