    Oneplus should include an option to change the color of the fingerprint icon (like the accent color). The icon itself I'm okay with, but I really don't like the color.

    White for example would look much better!

    Now every time I look at my screen I see the ugly green icon.

    The green color isn't just for looks, apparently tests revealed that green light works best when scanning fingerprints with an optical scanner.

    Yeah, they can light it up in green, but when nothing is touching the scanner the logo can be of any colour...

    How will the phone determine when there is and isn't a finger on the sensor?

    Using the touchscreen? [e]1f602[/e]
    The same technology used today to fully bright up the scanner

    Well wouldn't it be more logical to turn it off until someone touches that part of the screen rather than just changing the colour?

    Yes, the scanner is off until someone touches that area of the screen. But the "fingerprint symbol" must be showed on the screen to let people know where to touch the screen. This symbol can be every colour
