It’s always good to see full comparisons of popular smartphones, especially if you’re considering buying a new handset. Sometimes, as a point of interest it can also be good to take a closer look at a specific aspect. Bearing that in mind, today we’re showing some testing of iPhone 6S vs Nexus 5X, Galaxy S6, and Xperia Z5 fingerprint scanner speeds.
Samsung’s Galaxy S6 was the first of these handsets to release earlier in the year, while the iPhone 6S arrived for sale last month. The Sony Xperia Z5 and LG-made Nexus 5X are the most recently announced. In the case of the Apple, Sony, and Samsung handsets they are all flagship high-end devices. Google announced two Nexus smartphones this year, the Nexus 5X and the Huawei Nexus 6P, and the 5X has the lesser specs of the two.
One thing they all have in common is the inclusion of fingerprint scanners, and to take a look at how the speeds compare we’ve embedded two different videos from SuperSaf TV below this article. The first checks out the fingerprint scanner speed of the iPhone 6S, Galaxy S6, and Xperia Z5. For the sake of fairness the reviewer has switched off any animations on the handsets.
The use of the fingerprint scanners on each device has been filmed separately and then shown alongside each other in split screen to compare the speeds. We wouldn’t expect any really noticeable differences in speeds and this is certainly evident in the first test using the fingerprint sensors from the lockscreen.
