I read some comment from a news article citing a user who was able to use fingerprint in this tab s6 successfully by applying little lotion/oil on fingers for registering and using the scanner. I can confirm that it works.
If you are like me and have a oily forehead/ nose, a slight rub on the thumb gives it enough oil for successfully recognizing and unlocking the device.
I had hoped Samsung would have fixed it but it is what it is.

Mine after recognizing 60-80% a finger, it fail. So after this i tap with different fingers and in different angles.. This way it recognize 100% a finger and it works. It unlock with the finger.. :)
