Google has finally taken off the seal from their corporate mouths and have finally spoken up as to why their Pixel 6 line-up has a bug plaguing the users. And the explanation is not satisfactory at all, let us dive right in!
The Fingerprint Issue
The fingerprint scanners on the brand new Google Pixel 6 pair are unresponsive. Users have complained about the optical under-display sensor on both phones being slow and unreliable, but Google doesn’t seem to think it’s a problem.
Other reviewers, like as MKBHD and others, have pointed out that the Pixel line-fingerprint up’s sensors are slower than those found on other flagship handsets. It works OK, although it is slower than the majority of other options.
But now Google has spoken up, and they’ve come up with an odd reason. They claim to use upgraded “security algorithms” to ensure that the fingerprint is the right one, which takes longer than ordinary capacitive scanner scanning.
The tweet also includes a link to a help page where consumers can get a step-by-step guide on how to make sure their fingerprint scanner is working properly. Last week, the fingerprint scanners in the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro grabbed headlines when it was revealed that each one is connected to the phone’s motherboard, making screen repairs much more difficult.
Why is it weird?
We don’t really understand how this explanation is even valid, as it has been found by XDA that simply increasing touch sensitivity fixes the lag and makes it as fast as other devices.
