    Hi! The fingerprint scanner is very accurate in my experience. Thanks, OnePlus!

    The only thing that is giving me some trouble is using it in night. If you scan your finger while Ambient display is on, all content of the Ambient display is lit up very brightly. This is very uncomfortable for eyes. MKBHD, by the way, mentioned this in his review too.

    I see that if you first turn the display on by pressing power button or by double tapping and then scan the finger, this doesn't happen, only the fingerprint area is lit up brightly.

    So I wish this is fixed in a future update. No doubt, the fingerprint scanning area can be lit up independently from the rest of the Ambient display.

    When you scan your finger for the first time and when you scan it after turning the screen on, you can clearly see that the finger print scanning area is much brighter than the rest of the screen. So it is possible to make only the scanning area bright with the Ambient display too.

    Yes, Indeed the light for the FPS is too bright for the night. That's how it works at present.

    Same goes for the different wallpapers like white background wallpapers reactions are different when using the FPS. the screen flick whenever you unlock the phone and your op6t have some different wallpapers set in like bright wallpapers.

    Finally someone point out that irritating ambient brightness problem. I tried to make this thread since one week but not able to because i am new user.

    using face unlcok at night is more annoying [e]1f602[/e]

    the whole screen lits up to provide light for the camera to recognise face

    but I don't mind it. I am enjoying my 6t experience
