    OnePlus claimed that it's OP 2 fingerprint is even better then TouchID but TechnoBufallo proved it otherwise.

    I didn't finish their Periscope session a while ago(they did a live BTS) but I believe it's only software issue. Compared to TouchID which also scans the almost-outer part of the finger, OxygenOS only asked to tap the sensor until it reaches 100%

    While I've never used a oneplus 2, I can say that i was impressed with the iPhone fingerprint reader. If it's only a 1/2 second advantage are you really going to notice the difference?

    Another example of #1+Spin

    OnePlus said the OP2 fingerprint sensor is faster than Touch ID, I want to see a comparison on that.

    I guess the op2 can't go beyond iPhone 6 100% that's the max that can get so there can't be 110% logically I believe its oneplus who created the hype for fingerprint just a new feature nothing better based on the review

    The Oneplus 2 just came out. It needs some updates like the 1st time Iphone 5S had fingerprint it wasn't the most accurate neither Apple had to do updates.

    Yeah, I agree with you guys but their claim were a bit bold if you ask me. I hope an software update should fix it. We will see!

    Is this the consumer version build? I heard there was a 1gb ota update for the final products so which ever version it is may affect its fingerprint scanning performance. And also, I do recall OnePlus saying that it's *faster* than the fingerprint readers on the iPhones, not better (or more consistent).

    (with reference to tweets from various reviewers)
    There was Finger Print scanner related issue with OxygenOS build 150722, 150725 (available with most of the reviewers) and was fixed with OxygenOS build 150805.
    Not sure which OS build were this tests carried out on. Reviewers on the new 805 build had no issues with the scanner performance.
    Will have to wait and see when anyone gets their hands on retail OnePlus2.

    I tried it at the pop up event. It is comparable. We tested it about 3 times each and got close or real close to the same results...

    Well.. Since it is supported by Snapdragon 810 Chipset, which is furthermore advanced, I would vote for the FingerPrint Sengor..

    Not just the fact that they said faster but you also don't have to actually turn the screen on and then use the fingerprint reader to unlock your phone. You just tap the fingerprint reader and it opens. Unlike the iphone where you have to turn the screen on before. So to unlock and start using your phone would be faster on the OP2. Plus I never trust a review site on something like this. I have found that no matter what I'm looking at there is always a bit of bias in the review whether it's tech, cars, motorcycle gear, etc. Kind of like reading online reviews for a video card, nVidia or ATI(AMD), Gaming keyboards, Razor or Corsair? You always get a preference or at the very least a familiarity of a product. How many times have they set up Touch ID? How many times did they set up a OP2? It looks like you need to actually move your finger around a bit when you're setting it up so it can get your entire print not just pressing the same spot of your thumb over and over again. That way no matter where what part of your finger you put on the sensor it will read it. Otherwise you just get an edge of your print. I'll pass judgement when I get mine and set up my thumb, index finger, big toe, nose and tongue. :p
