How's your experience been and are there any workarounds ? Even the face unlock doesn't work as well.

Work around? I do not use any biometric screen lock. Wife uses a pattern. But we have a flip cover in place. Of course, security goes for a toss.
Just curious - Why is nobody recommending A70s to the "Op7T vs S10 - but no gaming" queries?

I am using A50 for past 10+ months and my main issue with the phone is fingerprint scanner, see my earlier post regarding the same.

Samsung released an update in between improving the scanner but not at all working. I have stopped using that feature and taught my mind that the feature doesn't exist in my mind .

Somehow I miss my Honor 9i, I used it for close to 1.5 years and bought A50 just because I managed to break the screen of 9i.

- Fingerprint scanner is a pain to use, it doesn't just respond on most of occasions and throws out NO MATCH error. The one on the OP 6T is comparatively faster. I miss the rear mounted fingerprint scanner on the 9i, which was a breeze to use.

Samsung could have actually given a better phone for the price. I don't feel like I have got a good upgrade over my 9i.

Issue is with the placement of finger print scanner and form factor of the device.

Try register a new finger print while holding your phone on one hand and putting your thumb on the scanner (simulating the scenario of your one hand use of the phone).
Also, if OK, try keeping the scanner logo with always on option.


Please try to understand, OP5 etc. has a physical Finger-Print scanner and are extremely fast. Under screen scanners like the one on Note10 / S10 Lite series had to do with non-direct contact which means, a longer and harder press on the screen. First couple of days would be a learning curve to get used to this new technology.



Note: I am using S10 Lite which has similar form factor and size.

I am facing the same issue as well. Especially the face unlock. It is slower than my 4-year-old phone which ran on Marshmellow.

I have gotten used to the fingerprint sensor now. I trained two out of three fingerprint learning options to the same finger. I have enabled the always on display option as well. Helps me to locate the sensor. It still is not as fast as I would like. But at least works reliably now.

Yes, on-screen sensor takes a bit of getting used to. Still miss the Home button sensor of my earlier Galaxy 7 Edge.

This is a good suggestion, but since they skimped here as well by allowing only 3 fingers to be registered it's still going to be an inconvenience.

Anyway, it's still early days and am loving the phone apart from this. Hope it improves with software updates.

Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

I changed my A70 to a OP7 Pro partly because of the slow processor as well as that dratted fingerprint sensor. Even after multiple updates it never really improved. I exchanged it within 6 months at a loss of 6K, and swore not to upgrade to the Note 10 to punish Samsung.

Samsung really screwed up big time!

Strange that you are facing fingerprint scanner issue. I bought A50 in August and it was really a problem initially. But since then it has improved and now I am really happy with snappiness of the scanner.
What I have done is almost after every update, I have re-registered fingerprints. Secondly I don't have any screen protector.

Why not try offline stores like Reliance Digital, croma etc. They have better exchange offers IMO.

Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

Any recommendations for a Warp Charge (30W) compatible cable for my OP7 Pro? Need to buy a spare but confused by the sheer range of choices on Amazon/FK.

The OEM one is pricey to say the least! Need a length of ~3 feet. Here is one which looks good: https://www.amazon.in/Tarkan-Rugged-...ustomerReviews

Go for the Amazon basics type-c cable.
I bought one for ₹299 and have been using one for my OnePlus 6 for the past 1 year and it's working completely fine.

Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

Has any one got Samsung s10 lite?
Need some review from you guys. I don't believe in online reviews.

S10 lite vs one plus 7t !! I am confused.

I don't think you will get that full WARP charge capability on any of those Amazon/FK cables. I believe, to get the same output of charging, you need to use Oneplus OEM car charger too.
