    Sensor is working only if fingerprint icon is visible, meaning it is impossible to turn phone on by fingerprint from the ambient display.
    In OOS11 you could touch where the reader is, the phone would realise, activate the reader and unlock the phone. Now, unless you move the phone or double tap to wake, the fingerprint sensor isn't functioning.

    Ambient display is just that, a display to give certain info, this display moves slightly to ensure there is no damage via screen burn in.

    If the Fingerprint scanner was to be permanently displayed this may cause long term damage to the screen with burn in, leaving a shadow on the display at other times. So it's a safety feature for the display with AOD enabled.

    I have the same problem after the latest upgrade to the Android 12 version.

    The previous OS would activate the reader with single touch. As I knew where to place my thumb, I could take the phone out of my pocket, place my thumb correctly, and it would unlock. Now I need to first double-tap the screen and then place my finger.

    That's triple the touches from the previous version, and it's driving me mad.

    Exactly facing the same problem. Waiting for c.60. if it gets fixed in that then it would be great or else I think will downgrade back to 11
