    5x finger print scanner not working very well

    When I set up my finger print scanner, the first few times it will scan on the first try but then afterwards I often fail after too many attempts. Any tips on how I can get the scanner to work better?

    Contact the people at Fi or at LG to see if this is a common issue. If so, the next monthly update will probably fix it. OnePlus had a similar issue and after they did an update, their finger print reader worked better and faster than the one on my 5X

    I've had the 5X for a month and it's been flawless. A great feature.

    try deleting the 1st set of prints, then re-scanning a new, but covering "more finger area" with each read..

    may help..

It is mostly denied by a certain type of person who refuses to admit that their reality is different from someone else's, and that their actions and words have unfortunate consequences. It's just a way to invalidate the real claims of other individuals in order to justify maintaining their behavior.

    So, a microaggression." - cuttercoats

    If your fingertips are dry, cracked, or swollen the reader will have difficulty.
