Hi there

I just switched from a Asus Zenfone 5z which has a dedicated fingerprint sensor. So one touch and you ard on home screen.

Now the fingerprint sensor on Note 10 + is slow, also the fact that one has to first click the side key and then put the finger on the screen and seemingly wait for 2 sec.

It is nowhere near as fast as the zenfone 5z.

Have you guys got any better solution or idea to unlock it fast.

Thank you for your time.

You don't exactly have to turn on phone to use fingerprint reader.

If you know the position of fingerprint reader then putting your finger there would turn on and unlock phone. But that would be if you can get it on right position. If not it would tell you and then you can readjust as it will then show you.

Other option would be to have always on display and would show position of fingerprint reader.

You can also double tap to wake up phone as well. Then go through same process.

Hope some others could add more but these has been what I've found out with my usage.

Enable the gesture "lift to wake"
Enable "always on display" so that you always see the finger print location.
What ever finger you use most for the finger print, scan it for 2 spots out of the 4 available. So I have my left thumb for 1, right pointer for 2, and right Thumb for 3 and 4. My right thumb is now always solidly fast.

1. Please clarify : Do you mean to register the same right thumb twice to increase accuracy of the right thumb, as that is what I mostly use.

2. Currently always on display is set as tap to show.
Does making it always show have any significant reduction in battery.

And that you for your time, you are very helpfull.

Didn't even know that I had to just press the locked screen.

Also thank you for recommending the lift to wake up gesture, has increased the speed a lot.

Still wondering if I can use NFC to keep it unlocked as it is always kept on a phone stand.

Many thanks for your time.

You can use Smart lock Trusted places under settings-lock screen to keep phone unlocked. You just have to turn on phone then just swipe to go into phone without password but it will lock after a certain timeframe if not used.

I do know about Smart Lock but prefer not to use it as keeping the GPS on does feed the location data to other apps as well, not something I prefer to give away.

Thank you for the recommendation though.

You can register your face as well. It works really fast with lift to wake up gesture.

Smart lock can be used without GPS on, it uses a trusted wifi network to keep the phone unlocked or, if you have one a bluetooth speaker...
Don't need GPS at all...

Another vote for smart lock but with a wearable like a wear os watch. I pretty much never have to unlock my phone.

In case helpful to someone else, I enabled the increase touch sensitivity setting under Display settings and the fingerprint seems to work much quicker as I don't have to press down harder.
