According to Ice Universe on Twitter:

Quote:

The correct way to unlock the Galaxy S10 ultrasound! Please don't press the screen, you just need to touch the screen gently, it will be unlocked soon, don't press the screen! This will be slower. By the way, you can quickly unlock it without lighting the screen.

Why would pressing on the screen delay the unlocking process? What are your thoughts on this bit of information?

From what I've seen in videos on YouTube, the error messages appear to say something along the lines of "press harder on the screen"

MKBHD has a great video showing exactly how fast it is by just lightly touching the screen on his channel.

Saw that. Just don't get how pressing down on the scanner makes the unlock process slower as Ice Universe is claiming.

I imagine its because it can't get an accurate read until your fingerprint is done deforming. Because you skin is flexible. The scanner would need to wait for that to finish. If you pressed really hard it probably wouldn't even work as the scanner scans in 3 dimensions not 2 like a standard fingerprint reader. Its need to see a depth differences between the peaks and lows of your fingerprints.

This is very relevant for me because I eat a load of wings and sometimes while sparring & training I get sweat on my fingers which makes using the phone FP sensor on the S8 a pain.
