With the new trend of having smart unlocking in the mobile industry, lots of users are looking for the best mobiles with Fingerprint scanner technology.

Here is a list of smartphones that offer a fast Fingerprint scanner along with some of the best features like 4G, 5G, Good selfie camera, and performance.

The list also includes the cheapest Fingerprint scanner mobiles even below Rs 7000 or $70. The fingerprint sensor is used for privacy and security purpose and adds to the ease of unlocking the mobile.

The First Smartphone to Use a Fingerprint Scanner – Motorola Atrix

Motorola was the first company to offer fingerprint scanners in its smartphone. Way back In 2011, among all Android phones, Motorola Atrix became very popular by getting this feature. The Atrix had a fingerprint scanner at the top.

The fingerprint scanner smartphones became popular after Apple decided to put this unique feature to the iconic Apple iPhone 5s, millions of users started using the feature and then Android smartphone makers also adapted the technology.

There are two different types of Fingerprint scanner placement on most mobiles, some smartphone like the Nexus 6P comes with a fingerprint scanner at the back while others like iPhone 6s and Samsung S7 comes with a fingerprint scanner at the front with the Home button.

Fingerprint Scanner Technology and usage: There are three different technologies for a fingerprint scanner in smartphones

  • You will have to place your finger on the button and the mobile gets unlocked. (as used in Apple).
  • You will have to place your finger and press down to unlock the mobile. (as used in Samsung S7 Edge).
  • In-Display Fingerprint Scanner Technology Used in Several mobiles like  Oneplus 8, Vivo V20 Pro, Samsung A71.

Apple has the luxury to place the Fingerprint scanner button on the front with the physical button but other manufacturers are limited by the space available at the bottom of the capacity touch screen buttons which make it impossible to place the sensor at the front.

I have used both and found the front button unlocking to be more convenient, however, you will also get used to unlocking the smartphone from the back button.

Now let’s check some smartphones which come with a fingerprint sensor.

I did a test on some of the mid-range mobiles having a fingerprint scanner to check which one of these is the fastest.

But previously this type of scanner is found in phones like Huawei Honor View 10, iPhone 6, iPhone 7, Samsung S7, S6, Huawei P20 / P20 Pro, and iPhone 8 / 8 Plus.

Typically you should avoid the front fingerprint scanner if it is not under display as the scanner can take a lot of space at the bottom and can make the screen smaller ad can also increase the screen to body ratio.
