With time, the technology used in Android smartphones is essentially blurring the line between science and science fiction! The day will not be far when you will be able to use your android device in lieu of a PC. The feature many users and tech pundits are excited about is a fingerprint scanner. While it is now found only in top notch Android phones, the feature will become more widespread with time. It makes unlocking the device simpler and is vital for making mobile payments a breeze.
Below listed are Best 5 Android Smartphones featuring Finger Print scanner:
- Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
With the Galaxy S6 Edge Samsung silenced its critics who slammed the Korean giant earlier for failing to come up with devices with innovative features and stellar performance. The display wrapping its sides make the device turn heads whenever you flaunt it! However, you get a beast inside the beauty. The Quad HD Super AMOLED display and super strong Gorilla Glass 4 panels make it a winner. The much bashed TouchWiz UI gets a revamp in it and the device also sports a powerful octa-core Exynos 7420 chipset with 3 GB RAM. The fingerprint scanner sits on the home button and works snappily.
- HTC One M9+
Once the favorite of geeky Smartphone users, Taiwan based HTC has been struggling to cope with steep competition in the top end Smartphone segment. The successor to much bashed One M9, features refinements that may enable HTC redeem its spot, largely. The bigger screen with 565ppi and 2k resolution makes it race ahead of iPhone 6. The device offers excellent usage experience with Sense 7 UI atop Android 5.1. Its MediaTek Helio X10 CPU is good, but not as fast as the Snapdragon 810. The front-facing, Boom Sound speakers are placed on both sides of the physical home button which doubles up as the fingerprint sensor.
- Sony Xperia Z5
Just when everyone started thinking Sony has nothing new to offer in the top end Android segment, the Japanese giant unveiled its flagship Xperia Z series refresh at the IFA 2015! The Z5, which replaces Z3+ boasts several enhancements and it comes with a side finger print scanner. It is logical since the finger falls on the button when you pick up the device. It performs near flawlessly and the device has enough other features to trounce rival flagships. The revamped 23 MP rear snapper with what Sony claims the world’s quickest autofocus technology is a winner. The subtle design chances and IP68 certification do give the Z5 some brownie points.
- OnePlus 2
Along with Xiaomi, hailed as Apple of China, another Chinese startup made waves in Android Smartphone segment last year. OnePlus One- its first device sold in record numbers and impressed critics. This year, the company has released OnePlus Two-hailed as the new flagship killer! The device offers nearly all flagship features at almost half the price. It has a fingerprint scanner in the home key. The 5.5-inch FullHD display is gorgeous and the device is powered by a Snapdragon 810 CPU and 4GB of RAM. The huge 3300mAh battery and 13 MP camera make it a worthy contender to take on most flagships.
- Huawei Honor 7i
