In this guide, you will learn how to improve fingerprint speeds on the Galaxy S20. Galaxy S20 is a flagship smartphone by Samsung and it comes with powerful specs and state of the art features. It also comes with the ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor which is better than the conventional in-display sensors out there but still, it is not good enough. However, there are some ways which you can use to improve its accuracy and we will share them with you. Let’s get started.
Ways to Improve fingerprint speeds on the Galaxy S20
These are the various proven ways which you can use to improve the accuracy of in-display fingerprint sensors in your S20.
Use the right Screen protector
One of the most basic and simple ways to improve the accuracy of your in-display sensor is to use the right screen protector. It has been noticed that when you use the thick screen protector on your S20, the in-display sensor starts having some accuracy issues. That’s why we would recommend you to pick the screen protector which is not very thick.
Also, when you apply the new screen protector on your S20, make sure that you re-teach your fingerprint. You can add the new fingerprint to the sensor as it will allow the fingerprint sensor to know how your fingerprint looks from a certain angle. We would also recommend you to do this process whenever you install the new screen protector.
Add fingerprint in the right way
When we usually enroll in the new fingerprint, we often do it in a hurry which results in an inaccurate fingerprint. That’s why we would recommend you to take your time and properly enroll your fingerprint. Also, add the fingerprint in a way that you normally use to hold the phone. It will allow the fingerprint sensor to take the accurate image of your fingerprint which will result in improved accuracy.
Add the One Fingerprint Twice
It is one of the proven techniques, it worked well for the conventional fingerprint sensors and now it also works well for the in-display fingerprint sensors. In this method, you should enroll your one fingerprint twice and make sure that you enroll your fingerprint at an angle that you normallyuse to hold your smartphone.
When you put your finger on the fingerprint sensor, it takes the reflection of your fingerprint and compares it with the stored fingerprints in the database. If you have two fingerprints of the same finger, it will improve the accuracy and chances of getting matched with the stored fingerprints.
These are the different ways that you can use to improve the fingerprint speed on your Galaxy S20. We would also recommend you to keep your S20 up to date as Samsung often release the new updates to fix or improve different features.
