Looks like this phone is under rated or it's not getting the attention it deserves ?!

Are there are any owners out there who have issues with the finger print scanner?

It's not the best but it's "OK"

The moment we apply a screen protector, it becomes from "Just OK" to BAD. it does not work 99% of the time even after we register our new finger print after applying a new protector.

I tried both hydrogel and tempered glass. Tempered glass is a little better but it's still horrible. It simply cannot detect my finger print.

I'm OK using the face detection but I need finger print to work to access the banking apps.

Sometimes I feel they shd just use the "tested and proven" method by having a physical finger print scanner by the side or back. I never had a single issue using phones with this type of scanners.


I'm just thinking of removing the screen protector altogether. It has Gorilla glass Victus and I think it shd be fine with some care from the end user side.

What brand of screen protector are you using and are you successful in getting your finger print recognized?

Damn... i just gave up on these screen protectors.

So I've tried hydrogel and tempered glass, it cannot detect my finger print easily.

I'm using it without screen protector.

I need convenience to access my online banking and other apps which rely on finger print.

Get a case that has a raise around the perimeter of the sides.

I'm using the free Rhinoshield case. The perimeter is raised. Don't think that influences the in display finger print sensor.

It's more of a screen protector issue that is affecting the sensitivity of the finger print sensor. Do you know of a compatible screen protector which you could recommend ?

No need screen protector if we use that raised case. The screen will not be affected on drop impact unless a debris of sand or metal or hard sharp object direct hit the screen.

So, without screen protector the FP reader works fine without issues?

If still insisted on TG, usually me will get Nillkin as 1st choice. If not available, try "Gor" for less than RM30 (two pieces)

On the other hand, "some" TG is compatible with the FP sensor as below:


Me believe it is due to how we "register" them. Kindly try to delete and re-register again but this time place the finger for two seconds before lifting to proceed until 100% mark.

Yeah without SP, it is OK. I'll have to be honest there that it doesn't quite match the sensitivity of a physical side or back mounted FP sensor, but it is acceptable.

Frankly, i prefer usability over the cool factor. Anytime i'll vote for a physical FP sensor. I've used so many of them and they are just so reliable.

Yep a Rhinoshield case comes with the phone during the "promo" period.

Yep no SP for me. The case does a good job, just have to watch out for the point you mentioned above. I think it should be fine.

Yeah I saw that video, not sure what TP he was using but by the shape of the cut out I can see it's not for the Zenfone.

Thanks for the recommendation and tips, maybe I'll try that Nilkin or Gor someday. thumbup.gif

8 flip i also tested a bit but way not as nice as the 8 mini haha. The FP on the 8 flip is terrible when i use. 10 time unlocking 2 time manage to get thru. Then phone is really heavy and uncomfortable for my use. I feel the s21u and rog 5 also better in a way. I was using the z7 pro and z6 before too.

Ya Rhinoshield case comes with it haha as freebies but put liao hard to take out a bit sweat.gif i prefer the 1 that comes in the box good quality case also. The 8 flip FP i find really has some big issue leh. try unlocking 10 times 8 or 9 time fail me haha. Where as the mini 8 is easier to unlock. But also will fail 1 or 2 times with my use.
