Hi guys,
I went through some reviews and my own experience too, and observed that the fingerprint scanner gets slower ans you increase the number of fingerprints towards 5.
More the fingers, more the time and more slower the scanner!!

So here is what i figured out -
Our OnePlus 2 scanner is not like touchID in the sense that it DOES NOT make us scan all parts of the finger. It does ask for the print multiple times, but it does not compel you to do it with all parts of the finger.

so here is what i did -
start scanning for 1 finger - do around 60-70% of scanning with your major finger ( eg thumb ) and then do the remaining 30 - 40% with another finger ( like index finger )
This way , I have 4 fingers configured in 2 prints. One for left thumb and index and one for left thumb and index. I did major part thumb and minor part index finger.

Also, make sure when you aree scanning any finger, you hold the device in various ways you generally do in daily usage and scan your fingers at all those angles. :good:

This hack has let me have around 96-98% accuracy and its really quick!!
Try it and cast your votes above!! ;)

Cheers! :highfive:

So how much slower does it get per added profile? I've got my doubts about accuracy too..
3 fingers was quite slow for me...
2 fingers is fast... Idk how, but there was a huge difference in 2 & 3... Didn't try more than that...
Accuracy, i have around 95-98% accuracy...
As ive said, if you make sure while scanning itself, that you hols your phone in all the possible positions that you normal hold your phone in and then do the scans, it increases the accuracy rate a lot... Since youve made sure to scan the "most probably used parts" of your finger...
