IS IN-DISPLAY FINGERPRINT WORTH IT?- TECHNOLOGY

VIVO announced world's first in-display fingerprint scanner smartphone yesterday at CES 2018. We know its a bold move by VIVO to launch in-display fingerprint scanner. it has not been done yet and being one of the most popular brand in the world, it should be considered as a risky step. We don't really know about the functioning of in-display fingerprint scanner and that is why we can't say whether it will get success or not. Apart from it, we all know that it is an electronic device and no device is perfect for everyone. Every device has its flaws and this will have too. Having in-display fingerprint may cause some problems. You might be thinking "Is in-display fingerprint worth it?". Let's get through it!

IS IN-DISPLAY FINGERPRINT WORTH IT?

If we consider the revolution in the technology, then its too good or even better than good. But if we consider our daily smartphone usage, it might get a low score. Let's see how!



i) SLOW FUNCTIONING!

It will work slowly than the typical fingerprint scanner present on any other smartphones. This is so because smartphones touch screen works with electrical signal which screen receives through fingers. But fingerprint sensor works with different mechanism. Generally fingerprint sensor uses capacitors in it which responds faster. It won't matter practically but it can't be ignored too!

You can check mechanism here: HOW FINGERPRINT SCANER WORKS?

ii) NO RESPONSE!

YES! You heard that right. It won't response sometime. This year only we got the report that iPhone X touch screen is not working in cold condition. Also, till now many smartphones do not have the display which can work in water too (SAMSUNG and Apple are exception) and VIVO don't have that much good reputation in integrating display to their smartphones. So, it might happen that fingerprint will not respond.

iii) COSTLY!

Here, costly does  not mean that this smartphone will be costly. By the word costly I mean that if somehow the display will break, then it'll cost too much because of the functionality which this display has. If we get our smartphone display broken, it usually cost $200 because it don't have in built fingerprint scanner but this display has inbuilt fingerprint scanner which will definitely cost you much more than the normal display.

iv) NO PROTECTION!

It may happen that we will be recommended to not to use lamination glass for this smartphone as it can affect the performance of fingerprint scanner. At present also many company recommend to not to use lamination glass as it affect the screen capacity to receive electrical signals. But we use it because  the affect of using lamination glass is unnoticeable but it will be noticeable while using fingerprint scanner and that also on the screen. Not using the lamination glass will lock our heart beat at its maximum for sure ;)!

v) NAVIGATION BAR!

Using in display fingerprint scanner will be the great experience but it'll be difficult to operate smartphone. It is obvious that fingerprint scanner will be located at the bottom centre of the screen and there will be navigation keys on both the sides. But where will be the home button? We don't know much about its design, so we can only hope for the best. Hope VIVO placed home button at a reachable position and not at an awkward position.

These five problems may be faced by the users of this smartphone. There's no doubt that this smartphone brought revolution in the technology but there is a but always.. Nothing can be perfect. Everything are made to have flaws. Even technology!
