The readers of track under the screen are the future, and with them the doubts have arrived on their operation. If the reader does not depend on the screen, it will work even if it is in poor condition , like is logic. However, what about the readers under screen ? Are they equally resistant?
Today, we show you in a video of Marques Brownlee, considered to be the Millennium YouTuber, how resistant are these types of readers and believe us, the results will surprise you a lot.
There are many questions that arise when buying a smartphone with a fingerprint reader under the screen. First of all, we must know that the operation is practically identical to that of a “normal” reader , so it will fail in the same situations. Marques starts with a classic, have wet fingers . As expected, the terminal is not unlocked in this scenario , so we move on to the next one.
Who has not ever smeared their fingers after eating? You have to wash your hands! If you are one of those who peck French fries and then grabs the smartphone, you should know that fingerprint readers under the screen also do not work with dirty hands . Let’s go now, with the million dollar question , and that I considered myself as soon as I saw this technology.
Does this type of reader work with a screen saver? The answer is yes . No matter the type of protector, the phone is unlocked even if it breaks , a relief because there are many of us who have protected the screen of our terminal.
Finally, it goes to the most drastic test, what happens when the panel is damaged . To do this, with different sandpapers, Marques sands the Live screen until it is really damaged, and surprisingly, the fingerprint reader under the screen keeps working , even with the screen in very bad condition.
In spite of being an incipient technology, and that still has a lot of work ahead, this type of readers seem to offer very good results. We hope that in 1 or 2 years these are the new standard , since facial recognition systems leave a lot to be desired, and are only a patch to solve the subject of bevels temporarily.
