I got my new Fairphone 4 (6/128) some days ago and so far I’m pretty happy.
What really annoys me, though, is that the fingerprint reader seems to be not ‘always on’ in standby mode (at least I couldn’t find an option in the settings to activate that).
Because there is also no double tap to wake, I have to press the power button every time when I need to wake up the device. It would be so much more convenient just to touch the button/sensor instead of pressing it.
Furthermore, the button is integrated quite deeply into the frame, which makes it even more difficult to press.
I hope Fairphone will soon release an update which activates the ‘always on’ functionality of the fingerprint sensor. Technically it should be possible, I guess.
I’d be interested to know what you guys think about it. Did I miss some setting?
At first the fingerprint reader annoyed the hell out of me. After a few days I got used to it. Now I think I am nearly as fast as with any other phone. Would prefer to have it “always on” nevertheless (at least optionally).
