IMO, having used the Galaxy Note 4’s sliding fingerprint sensor, the LG V10 / V30’s rear power button fingerprint sensor, and the K40’s side power button, I think the implementation LG’s rear power button is best. The K40 is not far behind, however.
I don’t like that the fingerprint sensor is under the screen or on a home button below, because that’s not where the fingers go naturally while holding a phone.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the K50 actually works on a revamped 888
Anonymous, 17 hours agoI prefer fingerprint scanners in the power button I hate that. also the fact that almost all manufacturers only produce side mounts these days. maybe it’s just my hand, but the rear scanner was the best imho. with a ring case it was ergonomic. there was virtually no chance of accidental unlocking and it was also quick. with side one, I often find it unlocked right after putting it away if I didn’t press the power button with nails but with my fingertips. the most boring
This “The main reason given was visual aesthetics and better body protection, although the readability is sometimes less good.” is horrible. One of my favorite things about the Pixel 4a and 5a is that they don’t use under-display fingerprint sensors *****.
Get rid of the disgusting punch hole already.
AnonF-1024704, 17 hours agoNo one buys compact phones Watch iPhone sales Compacts have the lowest market share
The iPhone 12 and standard iPhone 13 are considerably smaller than 95% of Android phones released in the past 2 years and are selling well. It was only the iPhone 12 Mini that struggled to sell. For me, the size of the Pixel 4a and iPhone 12 is the perfect size. Android makers have been particularly short-sighted lately. Funny how everyone has only made small entry-level tablets, but Apple makes the new iPad Mini and can barely keep it in stock. I bought an iPad Mini myself and hate iOS, but that’s what happens when segments of the market are underserved.
Anonymous, 12 hours agoHello, familiar person. I was just wondering which is your go-to phone in today’s sea of trash … moreHello.
The Poco F2 Pro isn’t too old yet, it has a 3.5mm jack, full display, great macro and a respectable main and ultra-wide camera, good battery.
If price isn’t an issue, the Sony Xperia 1 & 5 Mk3 are awesome, and except for the lack of an IR blaster, they have everything including a telephoto lens, and not a shit under 12Mp.
Other than that, the only phones that don’t have a silly punch hole, notch or under-display camera, curved edge display, still have a 3.5mm jack and aren’t too old. Neither budget phones are gaming phones like the Asus ROG Phone 5 series, Nubia Red Magic 5 (the 6 series has the silly curved edge display) and the Black Shark 3 series.
And unfortunately, that’s it, nothing else …
Fanboy of all brands, 12 hours agoHeavy and thick phoneAnother BS myth.
Pop-up camera phones are medium in thickness and weight.
The Poco F2 Pro is the same thickness as the Galaxy S21 Ultra except that it doesn’t have a camera bump and the Galaxy has a big one, it’s also lighter.
If you don’t want a phone with a pop-up, don’t buy one, no need to spit on it.
That’s excellent news ! I don’t want stand-alone fingerprint readers anymore, although they are slightly more accurate. The sub-screen is much more ergonomic and natural!
I have Poco F3 with FP mounted on the side, and it’s a complete disaster, especially since I’m left-handed.
UD FP on Mi 9T was much better and more consistent, although it was a bit slower.

Fanboy of all brands, 17 hours agoPlus, when you take your phone out of your pocket, it unlocks instantly, unlike screens.There is literally a setting to unlock by pushing the button or pushing, in my M51 at least.
And the capacitive sensor is newer and safer than the optical sensor.
Poco F4 🙂
Fanboy of all brands, 17 hours agoPlus, when you take your phone out of your pocket, it unlocks instantly, unlike screens.Lol, there is setting to unlock by pressing the button or without pressing, please do not broadcast false information
EJK, 15 hours agobut there would also be a problem with the tempered glass screen protector. Only bad ultrasonic FPS would do that.
Most Samsung S10 / 20/21 and Note10 / 20 users, for example, don’t even buy compatible / suitable tempered glass displays, or re-enroll their fingerprint after installing or changing it, and many continue. to “press” rather than “tap”, this is what is intended for ultrasonic FPS.
Optical scanner is the oldest form of technology, capacitive is newer and more secure
EJK, 15 hours agobut there would also be a problem with the tempered glass screen protector. This is my main problem, the glass is glass and especially GG Victus is actually more prone to scratches than GG5.
I still prefer a screen protector, but most FP underscreen scanners work much worse with them.
Better protection of the body.
This is a bad excuse, DUs are just cheaper nowadays (there was an article about this on a few tech sites not too long ago)
AnonF-1024704, 17 hours agoThe folks at the Poco F3 spec page: who buys a phone with a side-mounted fingerprint reader? No UD no … MoreBasically, people will always find something to complain about.
