The Under Display Fingerprint Scanner Is Reportedly Slow

Vivo was the first manufacturer to introduce a smartphone with an in-display fingerprint scanner. Although the in-display fingerprint scanner sounds cool, it is not very practical at the moment. Why? Because it is slow and inconsistent. Vivo could have just put a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. Anyway, it didn’t, and if you are planning to buy the Vivo X21S, you should think about its fingerprint scanner.
