Original topic:

Scrap the 'OK' button when unlocking the phone with a passcode

One of the most frustrating things after switching to android for the first time with the S10 is having to press the 'Ok' button to confirm your passcode. 

 

It's an unnecessary extra step. 

 

I suggest that after you enter the correct passcode the phone unlocks instantly.

@AEl This is possible already.

Settings app -> Lock screen -> Screen lock type -> Enter your pin -> PIN -> re-type your PIN to use as the "new" pin, and tick the "Confirm PIN without tapping OK" checkbox. Continue and re-type your pin again. It'll auto confirm, and then your lock screen will automatically unlock once you enter the correct PIN. 

I think the option is only possible to change when you're setting up a new PIN, that's why you re-type your existing on as the "new" pin, so it can set it up.
