Samsung enters the fingerprint scanner fray with the S5, but how does it stack up to the iPhone 5S?
It really seems more of a gimmick and a “we’ve got to have a fingerprint scanner too” kinda thing rather than a well thought out and executed feature (as on the iPhone 5S)
You can see from the video that their fingerprint scanner isn’t as reliable as Apple’s and even their touch screen is kinda laggy. I’m actually kinda shocked that even after so many iterations, Samsung’s touchscreens are still not as responsive as Apple’s.
And even though the S5 can authorize Paypal transactions with the fingerprint scanner, what’s the point when you have to swipe it like 5 times before it can read your fingerprint?
I’ve used the 5S for months now and the fingerprint reader is pretty much flawless.
Imitators are never as good as the originators.
