Samsung showed off its fingerprint scanner with the Galaxy S5 a couple of months ago.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 comes with a fingerprint scanner which is supposed to provide added security for the users.

Buyers who received their Verizon Wireless branded Galaxy S5 today will be a bit taken surprised to know that their device doesn’t support fingerprint authentication with PayPal. This is a feature which Samsung heavily endorsed during the launch of the smartphone back in late February and it’s clearly not going down well with the carrier.
It’s weird, we expected both HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4’s sequels to knock our socks off, enthrall and amaze with major upgrades like Quad HD display resolutions, bonkers 4 GB RAM modules, OIS cameras and significantly boosted Snapdragon 805 processors, but at the end of the day the One (M8) and Galaxy S5… just
In what appears to be a move to make its fingerprint scanner popular, Samsung has announced that it will be making this feature accessible to developers who may want to develop apps that will make use of it. This is in contrast to Apple’s iPhone 5S fingerprint scanner which the company restricts developers from using.
Samsung is going to release its next generation flagship model soon and as expected the Internet is buzzing with rumors surrounding the deivce.

It is being rumored since the past few weeks that LG is jumping onto the fingerprint scanner bandwagon with its new LG G3 smartphone which is set for an unveiling at the MWC in February 2014. A report from Digitimes now claims that LG as well as HTC could be looking to adopt a home
Long before high end Android devices started sporting a fingerprint scanner, other feature phones had experimented on this addition but unfortunately it didn’t pick up due to the limited applications on a feature phone.

With Apple announcing the iPhone 5s with a fingerprint scanner a.k.a the TouchID sensor, there were some serious concerns raised regarding privacy of the users. So it was imperative that questions would be raised when HTC announced the One Max smartphone with a fingerprint sensor of its own. And the Taiwanese manufacturer has now cleared
The recipe seemed simple. The exact same ingredients, just in a bigger package. Not even much more evolved, just bigger, as rumor had it the One max was not going to take One’s hardware a step further, but instead keep things equally as “modest”, with Snapdragon 600 power and 2 gigs of RAM. And sadly,
A Samsung Galaxy Note 3 variant with a fingerprint scanner may be in the works, and may be released into the market before the year ends.

Such technology is
Battle of the giants, take two. The duel between Samsung’s Galaxy S4 and the HTC One, which split the Android world into two this first part of the year, might have ended with a no contest win for the former (as far as sales are concerned, at least), but something tells me the GNote 3 vs.
Taiwanese source ePrice has managed to spot an image of the trio of HTC smartphones from 2013 – the One, One Mini and the One Max all posing together. This image gives us a better idea of the size difference between the three smartphones and a whole lot more about the upcoming One Max smartphone.
We recently heard about Apple’s issues getting the biometric fingerprint scanner onto the iPhone 5S, due to delays in the manufacturing process. It seems Samsung has the same problems and has had to cut it from the Galaxy Note III. Originally, Samsung was ready to put the fingerprint scanner onto the Galaxy Note III, trumping
