Samsung Galaxy S5 fingerprint sensor vs iPhone 5S


The discussion when it comes to the Samsung Galaxy S5 vs iPhone 5S will be around for a little while, and since Samsung unveiled its new flagship smartphone it has not really caught the attention as well as expected. Today we want to discuss a little about the so-called innovative fingerprint scanner on the new S5.

It was only yesterday we talked a little about Samsung Galaxy S5 vs iPhone 5S in premium competition and mentioned a little about the fingerprint scanner, but below we have a video courtesy of Mobile Burn at MWC showing how the sensor works on the Galaxy S5.

The new fingerprint sensor on the Samsung Galaxy S5 is in a way similar to Apple’s iPhone 5S, but instead of just simply placing your thumb or finger on top of the Home Button the Galaxy S5 requires users to slide their finger or thumb in a downward manner over the Home Button.

To set-up the iPhone 5S scanner you just simply place your finger on top of the Home Button then lift and then repeat the process until complete, the Samsung Galaxy S5 requires users to slide downwards many times until complete, then once complete iPhone 5S users touches the Home Button Once and S5 users have to slide downwards once.

If you visit the source of the video here and read the comments, you will see many comments about the Samsung Galaxy S5 fingerprint sensor.

Android users moan about Apple not being innovative with its iPhones, seems like it’s the turn of the Samsung Galaxy S5 not being innovative, disappointment comes to mind some may say.

Galaxy S5 Specs Recap: 5.1-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, Adreno 330 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 CPU, 16GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot, 2800 mAh battery and Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

When it comes to the fingerprint sensor what do you prefer, the Samsung Galaxy S5 or the iPhone 5S? We are only talking about the sensor feature only not the operating system.

    So it’s a laggy phone, just wanted to confirm. And by the looks of it, the fingerprint to unlock as you would expect from Samsung, is poor, and the phone has to be in the right mode to use it! Nice
