If privacy and security is on top in your priority features list, you will really want to have a fingerprint scanner in your Smartphone. Top Smartphone manufacturers are now more aware than ever of what their customers want and understanding that security is one of the top-most concern as all personal data is in the smartphone, they have started offering a fingerprint sensor in some of their Smartphones. Motorola is the first company to offer this facility in its flagship Smartphone. In 2011, among Android phones, Atrix became the standard-bearer by getting this feature. Apple followed Motorola adding a fingerprint reader in its Flagship phone iPhone 5s in 2013 and naming it as Touch ID. Soon HTC joined this club by launching One Max  just one month after the release of iPhone 5S. Although, touch ID got praise and HTC failed to deliver a reliable and accurate scanner. Samsung had been silent regarding fingerprint sensor technology as it had not added this feature in its Flagship devices like Note 3 and Galaxy S4. Smartphone world was expecting Samsung, Sony and LG to deliver this feature in their high-end devices but things didn’t change in 2013 as far as the aforesaid companies and fingerprint sensor were concerned. In April  2014, Samsung finally launched a phone that boasted fingerprint sensor and that was Galaxy S5. Galaxy S5 featured a fingerprint sensor that worked just like iPhone 5S touch ID as its fingerprint sensor was also located on front panel above the home button. But its method of working was different. To unlock the phone using touch ID, you need to put the finger on Home button, but to unlock the phone using Samsung fingerprint scanner you need to swipe the finger from top to bottom of the sensor. When Touch ID and Samsung scanner were compared, experts found that touch ID was fairly more accurate than Samsung scanner and thus Samsung lost to Apple in fingerprint sensor technology. Here we have listed all available Fingerprint reader enabled Smartphones.

LG G5 is pretty different from its predecessor in terms of design like it lacks gorgeous back power and volume buttons. A  fingerprint scanner has occupied that area. G5, not unlike other latest flagship devices, is powered by the mightiest SoC, Snapdragon 820 and 4GB of RAM. Instead of offering memory variants LG simply has decided to go with a sole 32GB model but at the same time to appease bytes-hungry customers it also bears a dedicated up to 200GB expandable memory slot. Another astonishing and captivating feature of this device is its dual rear cameras, 16MP+8MP. Of these two cameras, the first is a normal camera having a 78-degree angle lens, but the second 8MP camera features a 135-degree wide-angle lens. With this widest-angle to-date lens (in mobile phones), users can easily capture wider and taller area (a tall tree, building or a wider landscape scenery). LG G5 has a 5.3 inches Quad-HD display, guarded by corning Gorilla glass 4. As for battery, a 2800mAh battery seems to be insufficient seeing it has to power a Quad-HD display and a heavy SoC . In many battery benchmarking results, G5 no doubt has been way behind other latest flagship devices.

Meizu Pro 6, the successor of Meizu Pro 5, looks much like a iPhone 6S but we can say that Meizu puts a lot of efforts to make the design much better. It reduces bezels on front making it almost bezel less. However, Meizu fails to reduce space above and below the screen that could have been trimmed. Like other Meizu flagship phones, fingerprint scanner is located on home button. Coming to processing things, Meizu Pro 6 boasts off a powerful MediatTek Helio X25 deca-core CPU coulpled with Mali T880 and 4GB of RAM. Helio X25 is a three clustered processor ( 2+4+4 CPU cores) that makes it extremly power efficient and fast. If you are looking for a super powerful but affordable phone for heavy usage or heavy gaming you can head to Meizu Pro 6. 5.2 inches Super AMOLED display protected with Corining Gorilla Glass 4, 21MP rear+ 5MP front cameras and fast charging, reversible USB connector are another salient features of this device. But we are wondering why Meizu Pro 6 comes with a only 2560mAh battery and have no expandable memory slot

Honor 7X released late in 2017, is a efficient budget Samrtphone powered by Huawei’s in-house made chipset HiSilicon Kirin 659 that helps the device achieve Antutu Benchmark above 70,000. Honor 7X comes with a dual camera setup (16MP + 2MP) on rear and a 8MP selfie camera on front. Its dual camera setup lets you capture wide-angle photographs, however wide-angle capabilities are in name only and fails to explore wide area. Camera quality is also not up to the mark and many times taken images lack sharpness.

When it comes to design, the phone looks good and it tries to adapt Galaxy S8 full view front panel. Fingerprint scanner is on rear and it is blazing fast and accurate. Honor 7X has a 3340 mAh battery that lasts a day in general usage. But if you play games and other CPU and display intesive tasks, you need to give it a boost part-way through the day.

Samsung had been using Swipe to unlock method in its all phones before it launched Galaxy S6. Swipe to unlock method was criticized heavily and Samsung quickly replaced it with “touch and stay”-to-unlock method as in Ascend Mate 7, iPhone and MX4 Pro. Now in Galaxy S6, you need to put your finger on the home button to unlock the phone. Its scanner is fairly accurate and faster than that of all other previous Samsung fingerprint scanner enabled phones.

Ascend Mate 7 has been the talk of the town since its release in September 2014. Huawei wowed the world with its amazing fingerprint reader that is highly accurate. Tech gurus find that it is the most accurate fingerprint reader to date.

You need not to swipe your finger on the sensor, too. Just put your finger on sensor and the phone is unlocked. Other major standing-out advantage of Huawei sensor is that in addition to locking entire phone, you can also lock any individual app with your fingerprint.
