    I have an OP 8 and ever since I got it the fingerprint scanner is very unreliable. It's always a hit or miss situation, and it's driving me crazy. It really hope this is not a hardware malfunction, since this mobile was not cheap, at all (I got the 12GB RAM version). I kindly ask for it to be properly looked in the next OS update, because this is something that really drives everyone's nerves.

    Are you using a screen protectors?
    Did you remove and re-add the fingerprints?
    Did you do a factory reset?

    Yes, I am using a screen protector because I want to protect the screen for as long as possible, and I won't give it up just so that I try putting my fingerprint and it fails, again (and now I do not have a screen protector anymore).
    Yes, I re-added my fingerprint multiple times, and it still does not work.
    I mean, it's completely absurd that I would need to make a reboot of my phone to make the fingerprint scanner work. This should be addressed by OnePlus, because I'm not the only one complaining about it.

    Or try removing the screen protector
