This is new to me, turn off the battery optimized for apps: com.samsung.android.biometric

The fingerprint scan is so quick, the screen makes the change, the fingerprint animation hasn't finished. Try it!

Placebo or not???!!

I say NOT a placebo. This seems much faster.

Wow... I was very skeptical but still tried... Looks like it's working ~2 times faster now...

So, why doesn't Samsung have this set as "not optimised" by default?
If someone from Samsung is reading this, maybe it will get changed in an upcoming OTA but I wouldn't hold my breath...

"com.samsung.android.biometric" doesn't show up in my apps list under settings . I'm using the SM-N975F/DS, which is Exynos version. Does anyone have Exynos based Note 10 who is able to change this setting?

OK, found it under "special access" , I have to search for "Optimize battery usage" in the settings search bar and then filter for All apps, then look for "com.samsung.android.biometric" and turn off battery optimization. Tried this setting, and I only notice a very slight improvement in unlocking speed. So maybe this doesn't benefit Exynos devices as much. Would like to hear others' experiences.

It doesn't show up when I try to go to optimize battery for some reason.
