    I cannot add fingerprints with my phone. The process fails. Since I cannot add any fingerprints, the fingerprint unlock feature will not work. Face recognition works well and fast.

    UPDATE: We have to chalk this problem up to operator error. I thought I was following the instructions for adding my fingerprint, but I was doing it wrong. Instructions say to press the spot and wait for the vibration. I was expecting vibration like you get for a phone call or a message, so i just stayed on it until the Failed message showed up. I later discovered that you must press and hold only until you feel what is almost like a single click, then repeat until it says to move on. Once I discovered that, I was able to add multiple fingerprints and the fingerprint unlock works great. I am now delighted with my new OnePlus 6T.

    After 9.0.7 update I'm really happy with the optic Finger Print Scanner.

    I am wondering if it's nessacary to light up the screen 100% on all pixels during FPS. Lots of reviews point out how this makes it a pain to use the phone in darkness.

    Amoled screen makes it possible to only light up the FPS portion.

    I can see that during enrollment it actually only lights up on the scanner portion of the screen. Could it be made like that in both scenarios?

    So Oneplus hope you see this thread.

    I add 3 finger to my OnePlus 6t and I found that first finger work pretty good but second and third fingers after 2 hours I try, don't work as well as first one and don't work in 70%.

    I've used the official tempered glass screen of OP and also aftermarket ones, cleaned my cache as per instructions of OP tech but in my opinion the FP sensor still hit and miss. I dumped the tempered glass and went back to silicone glass protector, I got a Zagg Invisible shield installed now and it never miss and lightning fast. Sensitivity on screen is really high and very happy too. I'm not using face unlock anymore, if you really think your FP unlock is working as you expect don't use it in combination with face unlock.

    pixel 3 has plenty of ram management issues. as an overall phone, I'm loving my 6T. Pixel camera is awesome but it doesn't complete the package imo

    I had an issue where it was taking sometimes 3-4 seconds to unlock. When turning off all unnecessary function to see if I could fix it, I found when turning off night mode the unlock speed picked up quite a bit. hopefully this helped anyone having the same issue as me.

    I've given up on the fingerprint unlock. it work maybe 20% of the time. I've reprogrammed it dozens if times and it always sucks. it's a gimmick who's time hasn't come yet. I had a Huawei Mate 9 before this phone and the back fingerprint unlock is so much better. I should have got a 6.

    After having the OP6T for awhile I decided to by one for my wife too but I bought the OP6 because I know she'll be complaining about the on screen fingerprint unlock issues. I dumped the tempered screen protector including the official OP protector and stayed with the Zagg silicone protector which perfectly works with on screen fingerprint scanner. To many variables that make the on screen sensor unreliable like humidity, dirt, wet hands, does not function well when you're in cold environment, and so on. It's a good concept design but still needs lot of tweaking. Overall OP products are amazing.

    Well, the good thing is if you can't unlock your screen, you can pull the navigation shade down and turn off/on your frwatures like NFC and wifi/data..so if you lose your phone someone can use your Google pay and turn off location..

    Screen unlocking has worked really well, but today I was skiing and phone in my pocket and outside was -8C and didn't work at all

    Even with these tips, I find the fingerprint screen unlock to be unreliable, slow and frustrating. I hope that OnePlus will improve this technology with a software update.

    Instead i would suggest all to use double tap to lock screen and wake screen apart from pressing power button to lock or wake up the screen
