    Day by day fingerprint sensor is getting worse it takes almost 1.5seconds to unlock screen and 2 seconds to open the app lock. And screenguard is not installed here. Why such a disappointment giving to all oneplus owners and followers. Please do look into it and hope u would roll an update asap!

    Same issue. The fingerprint sensor seems worse than Oneplus two sensor in terms of unlocking the phone.

    I noticed that with the last update (9.0.6) the fingerprint scanner got a lot slower. Hoping it's fixed in the next update.

    I've noticed my fingerprint sensor gets worse over the course of a few days, then it will just stop recognising the fingerprint entirely and I have to delete all fingerprints and run fingerprint setup again. Then, after a few days, I have to do it yet again. OOS 9.0.6, and I'm almost sure it wasn't as bad under 9.0.5. I know this under display technology is still pretty new but they said they didn't put it on the 5T because it wasn't a great experience. Guess what guys, it's not that great on the 6T either at the moment. Needs a bit of fixing I think.

    I had the issue when I first starting using the phone. Once I cleared out my fingerprint data and stored new fingerprints it worked again. Over time. I have noticed that the time from placing my finger on the screen and the phone unlocking is probably about 2-3 seconds at this time. It seems abnormally long.

    In the time that I posted my last post and this post I tried to eliminate anything that could be preventing my phone from unlocking as fast as it could. I turned stuff off like WiFi and Bluetooth one at a time. Until I had an ahh ha moment. I noticed night mode was turned on. As soon as I turned it off. I noticed my unlock speeds were much more expedient. Let me know if anyone else tried this and it does anything one way or another for you.

    Se lo schermo è freddo ci vogliono più tentativi ,per lo sblocco......altrimenti al 2/4 tentativo, lo sblocco funziona......fate qualcosa ,siccome è come non esistesse, fa piu in fretta lo sblocco facciale ,che riprovare con l impronta.

    my problem with the fingerprint scanner is that my 1 year old son can unlock my phone with his fingerprint when it's only my fingerprint that's setup. it'll take him a bit but he can eventually unlock my phone.

    That's by design. All phones do it I think. Supposedly it's for security.

    I did wonder if night mode was causing it, but supposedly night mode gets turned off when unlocking. Although I'm now wondering if it's not fully off. I have the added issue that I'm usually trying to unlock at night, in a moving vehicle, while the phone is in a cradle about an arm length away so I'm assuming there's some movement issues adding to the misreads. Can't disable night mode though otherwise my night vision gets blown away.

    Unfortunately i 'downgrade' my OP5 for the georgeus OP6t, and i really can't stand the huge fingerprint speeds difference, i can say for sure that the OP6T fingerprint is the slowest and more inaccurate ever made by Oneplus.
