The fingerprint sensor has become a new must-have feature for smartphones. Especially, if you’re concerned about your privacy and security. As the demand for it increases, most of the smartphone device manufacturers do have models with fingerprint sensors. But do keep in mind that not all fingerprint-enabled-smartphones perform great in terms of how fast a device unlocks, how accurate it is, and how many fingers that you can set as the key.
Another thing to consider is that the location of the fingerprint scanner. Most of these smartphones have the sensor located at the front (as a home button) or at the back of the phone (below the camera). I suggest you trying with both types in person as it gives an idea of what location is comfortable for you.
