If you own either the Samsung Galaxy A50, A51 or A52 smartphones, you should know by now that the under-display fingerprint reader on these things is not only slow when compared to that of other phones;
But they also have the tendency to fail most times to accurately read and recognize your fingerprints, thereby resulting in failed unlocking attempts when you’re trying to unlock your phone.
This can become very irritating for the phone user when it keeps happening repeatedly, and for that reason, today I’m gonna show you some steps you should follow to improve the fingerprint’s reader speed and accuracy on your Samsung Galaxy A50, A51, and A52 smartphones.
So, you’re ready?
Well, then let’s get started. #enjoy.
How to improve the fingerprint reader speed and accuracy, on the Samsung Galaxy A50, A51, and A52 smartphones.
Step One – Increase your phone’s display touch sensitivity
First thing first, we’ll have to increase the display touch sensitivity on our Samsung Galaxy A phones. And to do this, simply follow the few steps listed below.
- Go to your phone’s main settings menu.
- Locate the option that says “Display“, and tap on it to open it.
- From the new page, locate the option that says “Touch sensitivity“, and tap the toggle button beside it to turn it on.
Step Two – Register same finger twice on the phone.
The next step to improving the fingerprint reader speed and accuracy on our Samsung Galaxy A phones is to register one finger twice on the phones.
And below are the steps to do so.
- Kindly go back to your phone’s main settings menu.
- This time, locate the option that says “Biometrics and security“, and once again, tap on it to open it.
- From the new page, tap on the option that says “Fingerprints“.
- Delete any already existing registered fingerprints, and tap on the “Add fingerprint‘ option to start registering new prints.
Now here’s the fun part, try registering one finger twice on the phone, using two different fingerprint profiles.
Doing this will make sure that any parts of the finger that wasn’t captured or weren’t captured correctly during the first registration will be properly captured and registered the second time you’re registering the finger.
- So, simply tap on the “Add fingerprint” button and register your fingerprint like you will normally do. It will be saved as “Fingerprint 1“.
- Now tap on that “Add fingerprint” button again, and register that same finger again, and it will be saved as “Fingerprint 2”.
- After you’re done adding your fingerprints, go further down the page, and disable the option that says “Show animation when unlocking“.
Step Three – Disable battery optimization for biometrics
Follow these steps to turn off battery optimization for biometrics on your Samsung Galaxy A50, A51, and A52 smartphones.
- For the last time, go to your phone’s main settings menu.
- Locate the option that says “Apps” and tap on it to open it, and a new page will be opened to you.
- From this new page, tap on the vertical three-dot button at the right edge of your phone’s display, beside the search button. It will bring up some new options.
- From these new options, tap on the one that says “Special access“, and another new page will be opened to you.
- From this second page, locate and tap on the option that says “Optimise battery usage“, and an even newer page will be opened to you.
- Now from this new page, tap on the search button located at the top right-hand corner of your phone’s screen, and type in the keyword “com.samsung.android.biometrics.app.settings” and hit search.
- The option will be brought up to you with a toggle button beside it. Tap on this toggle button to disable it and that is all.
After doing all these, you can go ahead and turn off your phone’s display, and try unlocking it once again using the fingerprint reader.
You should notice a slight boost in speed and the reading accuracy while trying to unlock it.
So, that’s how you can improve the fingerprint’s reader speed and accuracy on your Samsung Galaxy A50, A51, and A52 smartphones in just 2 mins.
