How To Make Your Android Phone's Fingerprint Scanner More Accurate 1
Fingerprint scanners, those little round things you see on the back of every smartphone these days can be quite annoying once in a while when you try unlocking your phone with them and you get messages like this

“Fingerprint Mismatch, Fingerprint Error, Fingerprint Is Dirty, FingerPrint Not Recognized”.

that’ll probably leave you staring at you fingers and wonder what’s wrong with your fingerprint, most times I’d just use the Face ID to bypass it but if you don’t have that I’ll walk you through on how to increase the accuracy of your fingerprint scanner.

Depending on your Android phone model, you may have to look around a little bit to find the exact name of the fingerprint setting. On Pixel phones, it’s called Pixel Imprint. On Samsung Galaxy devices, it’s just labeled as “Fingerprint Scanner. So just head over to your settings and go to security.

Most smartphones would let you put up to 5 fingers. The best way to set this up is in an ambidextrous way, don’t go wild and call 4 of your family members and register their fingerprint along with you.(Of course I’m just teasing) or put all the fingers on your one hand as a print there.

You should register fingers on both hands. This way, if the hand you usually unlock your phone with is tied up, you can still unlock your phone easily with the other one. Similarly, it’s probably a good idea to register multiple fingers on each hand. I believe we all use our phones in a way that our index finger is the easiest to unlock it (unless you’re an alien) so if you are right-handed you can try this

a. Right Index Finger
b. Right Middle Finger
c. Left Index Finger

If you are a south-paw just do the exact opposite. Right now we have 2 more finger print slots left.
this time get your fingers wet and clean it in a way that it isn’t totally dry then register the finger. This will come in handy when you are in the bathroom or coming out of the rest room and your hands are a bit damp. so we have

d.Wet Finger

So one more finger is remaining ay..now the moment of truth you can register your toe print as the one; anyone of your choice .I know right now you probably think I’m nuts for saying this, you’d be shocked at what you find.

e. Your Toe

On a side note – The whorls and ridges on our toes and fingers develop uniquely in each person and are not genetically determined. There are a few famous cases in which criminals have been caught by using toe-prints. The first was at a Scottish bakery in 1952 when a safe-cracker was identified by the footprints he left in flour.

Tecno Phantom 9 is on its way 14

Just in case you still haven’t heard, Tecno Mobile posted a teaser of their next addition to the phantom series. This was posted on their Facebook page about last week Tuesday.

Tecno Phantom 9 is on its way 15

The phantom series is considered to be Tecno’s top innovations, their flagship lineup. Always incorporated with the best hardware & features from the Chinese company. The phantom 9 seems to be following the same sequence.

From the teaser, we supposedly got a few hints (not sure if this is the right word) of what to expect before it is finally revealed. And it has a couple of impressive specs I’d say.

Here are the following specifications from the teaser;

• 6.4 inch Full view AMOLED display

• Android 9 – the latest android version

• In-display Fingerprint sensor

• 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM

• AI triple camera with dual front flashlight

• 3500mAh battery

I think Tecno needs to be reminded of what a teaser mean, because at this point, you’ll have to wonder how this is a teaser. Permit me to called it a spoiler instead.

What else do they have in store? They literally listed every spec we care about in a smartphone today. Well, only time will tell.
