Brian X. Chen’s Samsung Galaxy S10 Review

Brian X. Chen, writing for The New York Times:

After I set up Samsung’s new Galaxy S10 Plus phone last week, I showed it to my partner and said with atypical enthusiasm, “Check it out — this phone has the fingerprint sensor built directly into the screen.”

I pressed my thumb down on the screen, where the fingerprint sensor was embedded. “No match,” a message on the phone read. I pressed down again and got the same message. After five failed attempts, it asked for a passcode.

“Great demo,” my partner said as she turned back to browsing Instagram on her phone.

There are a bunch of other reviews that don’t mention problems with the fingerprint sensor, but Seifert and Chen had real problems.
