In-Display Fingerprint Sensors And Cold Weather Could Mean Problems


The northern hemisphere is experiencing a chilly climate and this will be an issue when it comes to fingerprint sensors. This may not seem like a big deal but your fingerprint sensor may fail to work in cold weather.  When it comes to in display fingerprint sensors they are really affected by cold weather. The design is faulty thus bringing this problem.

Cold changes a lot of things

In school we were taught that heat makes things expand and cold makes things contract. There is less moisture in cold air and this can cause a problem. This means your hands will be dry and mostly in your gloves. Cold, lint and dirt affects  the sensitive of the fingerprint sensor.

When iPhone 5S was released it had a really good sensor but some complains were filled when users experienced issues with their fingerprint sensor. The fingerprint sensor on Galaxy Note 9 and that on Pixel 3 are better than expected. Electrical capacitors on a capacitive sensor reads where the whorls and ridges of your fingerprint are thus is able to unlock your phone.

Engineers have worked their way round
this tech and are trying to make it possible for you to unlock your phone in cold days with ease just the same as you would unlock your phone in hot days. Your capacitive fingerprint sensor is less accurate on December than how it is on March. The in display fingerprint sensor on your phone is likely to fail during winter.

Several phones have used the in display fingerprint sensor. They all mostly work the same way. There is no major difference between their tech. There is an optical fingerprint sensor which is placed under the OLED layer in the screen. In the area where you should place your finger, bright light is shined in between the pixels and everything inside that area is scanned.

When the phone is scanning your finger a set of data points is being build. The data will be sent to a hardware component which will act as a keyholder. The lock screen of your phone or an app can request this data and when you are scanning your finger it will only unlock if your finger matches the keyholder. If not then it won't unlock. Most biometric scanners are built in such a way that it can't be fooled.

Everyone loves the biometric scanner but they should only work when needed to work. Imagine you got a new phone, let's say you bought OnePlus 6T. Since you are excited about this new phone you add a couple of critical apps, sign into several accounts and then set up your fingerprint. After a while you try to unlock your phone but it won't unlock. You are left puzzled. You try again and nothing changes.

This is a common thing. Your phone is responding this way because it doesn't think that it is you who is unlocking your phone. This happens because from time to time you fingers could shrink due to cold and at times get dry. If your phone shrinks the edges on your fingerprint also changes. The new tech being used has been able to predict this changes but the optical sensors are unable to adapt.

No means no

When it comes to the biometric technology things are that easy. It can be quite tricky. The rate in which your phone reads a false reading as true should be less than 0.05%. It should happen once in two thousand times. This slight challenges really matter. Some biometric scanners take a while before they respond and this may cause inconvenience.

The information stored on our phone is quite critical. In my opinion a 6 digit PIN  is better than an in display fingerprint sensor. The PIN is important but people want to unlock their phones fast thus they opt for the fingerprint sensor. False reading should rarely happen and if possible they shouldn't happen at all. If its fast access to your phone the fingerprint sensor should be reliable and accurate.

Devices such as OnePlus 6T have revolutionized the technology. They are showing that a fingerprint sensor can be fast and accurate at all times. Phone manufacturers such as Vivo and OnePlus or any other manufacturing company that has an in display fingerprint sensor may roll out an update that can solve this tiny issues.

You can fool the sensor using someone's else finger or you can always use a picture of the owner of the phone. The manufacturers of smartphones shouldn't allow such things to happen. Getting the balance right on this technology is the hard part.

As the technology scene keeps on changing the companies that started this tech will get better at it. They will improve on the software and hardware components.

Last year was all about Apple celebrating her 10th anniversary and thus, it is celebrated with the launch of the iPhone X which looked absolutely different and impressive in what Apple has produced so far. The launch of the iPhone X has brought out unexpected success for Apple.

There's no doubt that next year will be to the glory of Samsung as it's S series flagship smartphone will be 10 years of existence. However, celebrating this important event demands that Samsung should launch a new impressive smartphone just like Apple did in their iPhone X and thus, Samsung is fully ready to roll out new Galaxy S smartphone which is extremely special.

Based on the reports we have gathered so far, Samsung will launch three versions of the Galaxy S10 in early 2019, including one for low-cost flat-panel displays, and two for higher-end models with curved screens. The design of all three versions of the Galaxy S10 is said to have many changes.


Furthermore, the Wall Street Journal said there will be a version of the Galaxy S10 4 was released, code-named "Beyond X" (it is unclear that Samsung wants to play to insinuate that this Galaxy S10 will overtake Beyond iPhone X or not).

According to the Wall Street Journal source, the Galaxy S10 "Beyond X" will be a 5G smartphone, with a 6.7-inch screen and a total of six cameras (two self-contained cameras and four cameras).

The other three Galaxy S10 versions, code-named "Beyond 0", "Beyond 1" and "Beyond 2", will be sold sooner. Meanwhile, the Galaxy S10 "Beyond X" will only be sold out when operators are ready to put 5G technology into practice.

This source reveals a special feature of the Galaxy S10 "Beyond X", which is a wireless backward compatible charger. Hence, we've noticed this feature on Huawei's Mate 20 Pro, which is used to charge for wireless headsets or other smartphones.

The design of the Galaxy S10 version of the 10th anniversary may be different, but the Wall Street Journal's sources do not reveal it and thus, Samsung has not commented yet.

Xiaomi didn't really specify how much it will cost to buy this phone in India. I'm guessing the price will be roughly around $210. If this will be the price then this phone will dominate the Indian market till 2019.

Xiaomi is doing what other manufacturers are doing. They are releasing new phones when there is any new upgrade. If you have a Redmi Note 5 Pro there is no need to upgrade to a Redmi Note 6 Pro. If you have the older versions then it's better if you upgrade.

OnePlus 6T VS OnePlus 6 : Should You Upgrade?



In summary we can call OnePlus 6T the improved OnePlus 6. When you check the hardware nothing much has changed. The phone has a dewdrop notch design for the camera and has also included an in display fingerprint sensor. It has a 3700mAh battery capacity but there is no room for a headphone jack.

If you have OnePlus 6 you can hold onto it for a while. It is still one of the best devices out here. There is nothing great about OnePlus 6T. If you want wired audio then you are better off with OnePlus 6.

Every year OnePlus has been releasing two flagship phones for the last two years. When they release the second device they are just trying to make some minor improvements here and there. That is what has happened with OnePlus 6. There are very little changes when it comes to the hardware. Let's see if you should upgrade to OnePlus 6T.


Should you upgrade from the OnePlus 6 to the OnePlus 6T?

When it comes to releasing new models OnePlus doesn't change a lot of hardware elements or the design of the phones. The specs one OnePlus 6T and those on OnePlus are just the same. The main difference between these two phones is that OnePlus 6T has a dewdrop design cutout at the top and now it has an in display fingerprint scanner.

OnePlus 6T has a bigger screen display of 6.41 inches while OnePlus 6 has a display screen of 6.28 inches. OnePlus 6T is 0.6mm narrower than OnePlus 6. OnePlus 6T is heavier than OnePlus. The larger battery capacity of 3700mAh makes it heavier.  The notch at the top is easily ignorable and it is not annoying. The in display fingerprint sensor is a cool way to unlock your phone. It is not the most reliable way of unlocking your device. There is an optical in display module with takes a second to unlock. It is quite annoying when the phone is placed flat on a table.

At times the sensor may fail to recognize  you fingerprint on several occasions. If you want to upgrade because of the in display sensor then its better if you just wait. The tech used is amazing but how it was implemented is the issue. The face unlock feature on OnePlus 6T is just as accurate as that on OnePlus 6. Face unlock feature is among the fastest way to unlock your phone on Android today.

When it comes to the processor both phones are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 which has 8GB or 6GB of RAM. They both have Bluetooth 5.0, AptX HD and dual cameras. On OnePlus 6T you will get an internal memory of 128GB. Both OnePlus 6T and OnePlus 6 have a Gorilla Glass 6 at the back and at the front. It gives this phone the protection that it needs. But it's still advisable to buy a protective case for more durability.

There have been a trend of manufacturers not including a headphone jack on their devices. OnePlus 6T has followed suite. Fans were puzzled with the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack. Most manufacturers are moving away from wired audio.

OnePlus has never disappointed when it comes to its performance. With the support of Snapdragon 845 you can be confident of the best performance on an Android device. There will be no slow downs when you regularly use this device.

OnePlus is utilizing its huge RAM to the fullest. They have included a new feature called the 'smart boost' which caches data from those apps which are frequently used by the RAM. it helps in boosting the RAM. This feature was designed for games. It would help games such as PUBG to load faster.

 Smart boost is only available on OnePlus 6T but i believe it maybe available in other OnePlus devices soon. When it comes to the software department things are just the same. OnePlus didn't make major changes. OnePlus 6 picked up the Android Pie 9.0 and OnePlus 6T is also running on Android 9.0. They are both having the latest software. They also have their own operating system called the OxygenOS. OxygenOS has one of the best third party software experience on an Android device.

When it comes to the camera department there is no difference. OnePlus 6T and OnePlus 6 have the same camera. OnePlus 6T has a Nightscape mode that stacks numerous pics to produce a more clear image in a low lit area.


OnePlus 6T has nothing new or cool that will make you want to upgrade. The in display tech is being perfected. It will take a while before it is accurate and on the same level as some other manufacturers. The traditional fingerprint sensor is still faster and much more accurate than the in display fingerprint sensor.

OnePlus 6T and OnePlus 6 have the same hardware specs. OnePlus 6 is still a very capable phone in 2018. Users will always love it and it still has a 3.5mm headphone jack which is good for those who like wired audio.

Summary

The in display fingerprint sensor is quite cool but it is not the best. It's not as fast and as accurate as the traditional fingerprint sensor.

The software on both phones is identical. There are no major differences between the two phones. They are almost identical. The performance is also the same.

OnePlus 6T

Uses everything on OnePlus 6  and makes some few minor adjustments and improvements. With OnePlus 6T you will get a notched phone and an in display sensor. This is the first phone from OnePlus with a notch design and an in display fingerprint sensor. The hardware is just the same as that on OnePlus 6.

OnePlus 6

This phone is still among the best phones of 2018. It has been compared to the likes of IPhone X and Samsung Galaxy S9. This phone was launched just 5 months ago and is still among the best phones of 2018.

OnePlus 6T $549
OnePlus 6 $529
