Check out this video comparing the speed of the iPhone 6s vs. Nexus 5X fingerprint scanner.

With the iPhone 6s, Apple improved the speed of its Touch ID sensor compared to the iPhone 6. You can watch a comparison video of that here. Will the Nexus be able to beat it?

The Nexus 5X is the most stupid design ever, and much slower as the iPhone 6s Obviously the iPhone wins this lame testing.

I think what you all are missing is that the iPhone turned on the screen faster, when using the fingerprint scanner. However, the Nexus 5x gets you to the functional home screen faster, which seems more useful to me. That being said, the fraction of a second that sets these results apart is inconsequential in my day to day usage case.

Would I need to carry around a mirror with me so I could see where to place my finger / see if my phone unlocked? :)

i think your comment wins for the dumbest since you seemed to believe the first persons sarcasm.

Dumbest design ever: placing the fingerprint scanner at the back of the device. The timing should really include how quickly you can flip the device around.
