These phones with newer ultrasonic FP scanners, especially the larger ones, might be more accurate and reliable, but they’re terrible when it comes to choice of screen protectors. I have one from Vivo (X80 Pro) and you pretty much can’t use any Tempered Glass screen protector, even those with UV adhesive, because these newer ultrasonic FP scanners don’t work with Glass screen protectors. Your only choice is either a plastic or hydrogel screen protector that offers no drop protection.
Even the ultrasonic FP from the Samsung S series requires you to use a special Tempered Glass screen protector that has a “hole” that allows the ultrasonic FP scanner to read properly. Even then, it doesn’t read properly for considerable number of times.

Because if you're not, then you're not really that secure. Also fingerprint processing is done entirely on devices.

Fingers print I'd is just another they get personal information about you
It uniquely identify you in a way you can't change
Most pointless gimmick upgrade adding too phone price
Password words or pattern is best
You can change your password too if it gets figure out
And have multiple passwords for different websites
Can't change your fingers print password more than 10 times
My opinion definitely going to be a unpopular one
This is what Google needs to use on the Pixel 7!

But I knew what I was looking at, might not be as useful for someone who doesn't already know what they are looking at (internals)

I hope they'll also use faster fingerprint reader on A series. I have A52s and it works great but i've seen better.
Prefer Apple’s Face ID to any of these FP scanners. It’s 2022 and Android is still working on FP.

At least in iPhone XR, it's positioned to move along the X axis. However, Taptic Engine is nothing like any other "vibration" motor. It's essentially moving about a rather massive chunk of metal and it can do that at really high speeds, which gives it that distinct strong feedback feel.
Here you can see how it's positioned inside a phone and how it looks on the inside when they open up the Taptic Engine.
Z axis motors usually have a donut shaped object inside that moves along the Z axis (through the thickness of phone) and regular vibration motors are essentially rotating an unbalanced weight that gives out vibration.

In which axis is Apple's Taptic Engine rotating?
Shadocx, 20 Aug 2022Have you actually tried changing the pattern and intensity of the vibrations?It doesn't matter as they changed the axis of vibration motor. Instead of vibrating through the thickness of the phone (Z axis) it's now vibrating along the length of the phone (X axis). Which is a really bad idea. Z axis means it vibrates against your leg in a pocket and against table if laying on it. X axis is not really vibrating against anything important which is just bizarre design decision, like they are making the phone for the first time...
