    Hi guys,
    I went through some reviews and my own experience too, and observed that the fingerprint scanner gets slower ans you increase the number of fingerprints towards 5.
    More the fingers, more the time and more slower the scanner!!

    So here is what i figured out -
    Our OnePlus 2 scanner is not like touchID in the sense that it DOES NOT make us scan all parts of the finger. It does ask for the print multiple times, but it does not compel you to do it with all parts of the finger.

    so here is what i did -
    start scanning for 1 finger - do around 60-70% of scanning with your major finger ( eg thumb ) and then do the remaining 30 - 40% with another finger ( like index finger )
    This way , I have 4 fingers configured in 2 prints. One for left thumb and index and one for left thumb and index. I did major part thumb and minor part index finger.

    Also, make sure when you aree scanning any finger, you hold the device in various ways you generally do in daily usage and scan your fingers at all those angles.

    This hack has let me have around 96-98% accuracy and its really quick!!
    Try it and cast your votes above!! ;)

    Cheers!

    Excellent. I just tried it and it works like brilliantly. My success rate has definitely increased to 90% or more.

    I scanned 50% for my right thumb and index finger, and 50% for the left hand thumb and index finger. I also scanned different parts of the same finger to improve accuracy.

    I just wish Oneplus had thought of this because I was beginning to feel that the scanner was poor!

    I'll let you know if it worked when I get my OP2 (8 to 17 days).

    I registered 4 times the thumb in different ways(360°) and its working also.gonna try your method now.

    Edit: registered once the thumb in different ways and it works perfectly.
