Samsung tries to improve the fingerprint sensor of Galaxy S10. The in – display fingerprint sensor was one of the major pain points of our review of the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus. We found it to be noticeable slowly and inefficient enough of the time.
Now that the device has been out for a while, the same thing is being complained by many users. Samsung must listen because it is now pushing out a patch to the Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus that is supposed to make the sensor faster and better than ever (through SamMobile).
The Galaxy Store distributes the biometrics software update that includes the new patch. Since that’s the case, there’s no way to trigger the update manually; you’ve got to wait until it gets to your device.
Does the patch actually improve the sensor of the fingerprint? That’s hard to say: many Reddit users who have received the patch seem to think it does, but with these kinds of things there’s always the concern about “the placebo effect.” We’ve seen other online users with the patch, for example, saying they don’t notice any difference.
Whether the patch does wonder or not, at least Samsung doesn’t ignore the problem and instead tries to find ways to improve the user experience.
