Samsung Has Just Fixed the Biggest Galaxy S10 Bug

Samsung is currently in the process of rolling out a new update for the Galaxy S10 that resolves one of the biggest annoyances on its new-generation flagship: the inconsistent experience with the fingerprint sensor.

The Galaxy S10 embraces a completely new approach for Samsung’s high-end phone lineup, as it ditches the fingerprint reader on the back for a version that’s embedded into the screen.

In other words, to unlock a Galaxy S10, you just have to touch the screen right on the sensor, and this thing should work even if you have a screen protector applied.

But as many discovered the hard way, the experience with the Galaxy S10 fingerprint sensor has been inconsistent, to say the least. While the unlocking sometimes happened almost instantly, it often failed or took more than a couple of seconds.Update now rolling outThis new update is supposed to significantly refine the experience, as per this reddit thread. Users say their devices unlocks instantly every single time, with no error whatsoever.

This can only be good news for Samsung Galaxy S10 users, especially because this update lands more than a month after the launch of the device. When I reviewed the Galaxy S10, my test unit came without the original fingerprint reader update installed and the way everything worked was rather painful.

The first update improved things a little bit, but not to a degree that made it fully reliable 100 percent of the time.

The new patch, which is just 6.9MB in size, is currently rolling out to devices across the world, but as with everything Samsung, there’s no ETA as to when you could get it. It’s all just a matter of luck for now, so we expect the South Korean company to provide a few more details about the update itself and whether we should expect further refinements to the fingerprint sensor in the coming months.
