Hi all , I've set up the fingerprint reader on my S10 , I've entered the prints at various angles and I've also done a full scan perfectly straight but I've got to say this is the worst reader I've ever used , 9 times out of 10 it says " no match " then says I can't use it for 30 seconds , it's just rubbish

Did you know that you can setup the same finger up to for times on S10? This is what I have done on my Note 10. I am left handed so I setup my left thumb for times and it unlocks straight away 8 times out of 10.

On my S10 I can only have 4 prints added , I have 2 thumbs and 2 fore fingers added

This is what i do @Edgie70  @Hikari 

 

A couple of tips I picked up when setting up the finger prints are.

 

When setting up take x3 scans with each thumb and then rotate the phone around when taking further prints of each thumb so your phone can read both thumbs from the same finger print scan. Scan your prints as you would normally hold the phone.

 

Also using two fingers when setting up one fingerprint works pretty well.

 

Go into Settings . Biometrics and Security.  Biometrics Preferences . Turn Off Screen Transition Effect.

 

Then go into Settings and search for Optomise Battery Usage. Tap in Optimise  Battey Usage  tap to show All and scroll down to com.samsung.android.biom and toggle Off

 

For me this improved the fps on my Note 10+ 5G which I appreciate is a different model to yours but should be the same outcome- hopefully.
