Hey guys I found this guide on how to make your A51 fingerprint faster..
1) Open Settings, go to Apps, tap the 3-dot menu button at the top and select Show system apps.
2) Search for com.samsung.android.biometrics.app.settings and select it.
3) Go to Battery » Optimize battery usage and make sure you have selected All apps from the drop-menu at the top.
4) Search for com.samsung.android.biometrics.app.settings again and tap the toggle to disable this function.
5) Reboot your phone to apply the changes.

Well it did for me, but still they say it might not work for every device depending on settings and use; as some use background processes limit and it makes system process a little bit slower to launch.
na cause when you back out it goes back to default and show nothing optimized again. Makes you pickes apps again. Even after reboot. I bet if you check it will correct itsself. Sorry this does not work

What i did:
i recorded one finger a bit over 50%, then i use the same finger of the other hand to fill it up to 100%.
This procedure i repeated twice for another two fingers.

It doesn´t make it that faster, but it´s much more comfortable, because i can use 6 instead of 3 fingers.

it works and in the one ui 2.5 it is already preset not optimized, so samsung understood why the unlocking of the device was slow and they solved this problem.
anyway thanks for the guide:):cowboy:
