The Galaxy S10 is one of the best mobile phones in years by the world's largest smartphone OEM. With its amazing display, its new user interface and first-class cameras, there is not much to complain about. The biggest drawback is the in-display fingerprint scanner and how slow it is. Thanks to a recent update, it has become a lot faster.
While the ultrasound scanner has its advantages over the optical in-display scanners of other phones, there have been some difficulties. When Samsung launched the Galaxy S10 and S10 + for the first time, accuracy was a problem as many complained that it was too slow and too often gave them the error message "No hit". To fix both issues, an update was made immediately, and while the No Match issue was resolved, the speed was still not comparable to traditional fingerprint scanners.
This finally changes with two new updates released by Samsung in April 1
1. One is the March 2019 security patch, which includes improvements to the kernel-level fingerprint scanner. The update, which – at least in our experience – really made a difference, was a new version of the Biometrics app. So, if you do not have to wait for your mobile service provider, wait for the Biometrics app to update in March 2019 and you should still see improvements.
