    and as you have already dived deep into the fingerprint department, it would be great if you could provide us an insight on ultrasonic fingerprint sensors.....
    how you've experimented with the same? what are your views, and would you plan to implement the same in the future.

    my post was meant to be a joke on people creating hundreds of threads on that issue.

    I sometimes use a finger that isn't registered, just so I can look at the cool animation for a while :p

    Try to follow the advice mentioned toward the end of the post. It should hopefully improve your Screen Unlock experience.

    I'm really curious to see how this sensor works through a cracked screen!?

    I'm pretty sure no one would try that with their phone though! [e]1f602[/e]

    Thanks, @YASHPLUSONE. Yes, Ruby is certainly great at her job - and she always brings the best snacks to the office :yum: We're hoping to post more deep-dives like this in the near future, so keep your eyes on the forums :sunglasses:

    I like the physical fingerprint scanner on the OnePlus 6 more. Anyway, the 6T's isn't bad considering this is the first OnePlus device with Screen Unlock. But I gotta say, it's really fast only when the finger is on the exact location. If it's a lil offset, it won't unlock as fast. It's hard to place the finger in the exact spot every time I unlock the phone. It isn't a problem with the physical scanner on the OnePlus 6 because we don't have to adjust the finger position on the scanner.

    Also if the phone is unlocked from the lockscreen, only the fingerprint part lights up in full brightness. But if the phone is unlocked from the ambient display, the whole ambient display lights up in full brightness. It actually hurts the eyes in very dark environments. I hope OP fixes this.

    My personal experience.. If, during registering I tap the screen lightly... then later I need to only tap lightly for unlocking

    same thing is there in the oppo too.
    and I think practical execution in oppo is better.
    hope it gets better on the op7.

    This is an eye opener and glad to know things will get better over time. Just what I needed to hear for my OnePlus 6T

    Welcome to the forums @Dale F.

    nice message and I can't complain about the Screen Unlock on my device. Even if it isn't as fast as the the one on the 5T and the OP6, it certainly helps when the phone is on the table. This combined with Face Unlock is rather convenient.

    Suggestion: maybe OnePlus can add a few more animations to the Screen Unlock besides the three we already have? ;)

    You are not the only one who does this :D
