Apple iPhone 6 Plus vs Samsung Galaxy S5 vs Huawei Ascend Mate 7
Apple iPhone 6 Plus, Samsung Galaxy S5 and Huawei Ascend Mate 7 are three very different flagship devices and even though each one of them comes with a certain feature set of their own, there’s one thing that each one of them has in common. A fingerprint sensor.

The trend of fingerprint scanners in smartphones seems to be on the rise lately. There’s an interesting demo video from FoneArena on YouTube that we wanted to share with you today. It shows us how each different manufacturer has decided to use the fingerprint scanning technology in their devices.

Not only are we looking at three different smartphones that utilize fingerprint scanners, but we’re also looking at three different techniques to capture those fingerprints. Each one is implemented in their own unique way and each one of them behaves differently. The first thing we get to see is the location of each fingerprint scanner. The team behind the Ascend Mate 7 has decided to incorporate their fingerprint scanner on the back of the device, right below the camera sensor. The South Korean tech giant Samsung has decided to embed their fingerprint scanner within the home button of the Galaxy S5. The iPhone 6 Plus also has its fingerprint scanner inside/underneath the home button too.

The next thing we get to see is a quick demo of each of these fingerprint scanners. These demonstrations start at around the one minute mark in case you would like to skip directly to them. The first demo we see is for the Huawei Ascend Mate 7. The guy in the video picks up the device, locks it, and then does a countdown to unlocking it. We can see it unlocking very quickly. The next demo we see is with the iPhone 6 Plus. The guy locks the device, taps the button to power it on, and then places his finger on top of the home button to unlock it. Again, this looks like a rather quick and painless process.

The last demo we get to watch in this first batch of tests is of the Galaxy S5. The guy locks it, turns the display on, and then does a simple swipe down across the home button. Again, it unlocks rather quickly and is a simple enough process. Have you had a chance to use the fingerprint scanner on any of these devices? If so, please use the comments section below to tell us about your experiences.
