Remember the The Vivo X20 UD, The first to be based on the AMOLED screen And a special fingerprint scanner Of Synaptics company underneath? He landed in the lap of the "professional abuser" this season nicknamed JerryRigEverything on the platform, For a careful examination of its general toughness and the durability of the new technological application in particular.

We have to admit that we were somewhat surprised by this, but the X20 UD successfully survived the bends and scratches - and continued to work with proper agility and reliability even after the cladding above it was noticeably scratched and visible.

It is worth noting that scratching the smartphone with the utmost rigidity has cracked and destroyed the entire display panel in a way that did not allow for continued use or scrutiny - but this is certainly an extreme examination that most consumers will never experience in their average daily use, and would probably end up with it. Of most modern devices.

Survives with dignity all the standard tests, without compromising finger scanning capabilities

For us and the examiner, it seems possible to declare that a future where scanners below the display panel will be very common is a boon not only for saving space and improved human engineering - but also for the reliability of the scanners. what do you think? Share comments.

  1. US law allows a detainee to give a fingerprint and any other biometric information to unlock the phone, not a password. Therefore, it is better to lock and encrypt the phone with a password.

  2. interesting,

    Write a name that a judge has decided that the police may - through a court order - force people to unlock the phone with their fingerprint:

    a quote

    a Virginia judge ruled in 2014 that police can force users to unlock their smartphones with their fingerprints.


    a federal judge signed a warrant authorizing law-enforcement officers to place her finger or thumb on the Touch ID sensor of her iPhone

    And he will excuse it by saying "there is a window of 4 hours until the phone requires a password," and the alleged password is civil rights:

    a quote

    The Fifth Amendment, which protects people from incriminating them during legal proceedings, prevails the government from compelling someone to turn over a memorized PIN or passcode. But fingerprints, like other biometric indicators-DNA, handwriting samples, your likeness-have long been considered fair game, because they do not reveal anything in your mind. (Marcia Hofmann, a digital-rights lawyer, wrote a comprehensive rundown of the question in late 2013, when it was still hypothetical.)

    This is quite blatant sophistication against the "spirit of the law", and I'm not sure it will necessarily stand up to a retrial or their "bug".

  3. Obviously, even a robber can force you to unlock your phone with a fingerprint (physically it will force you to finger it), but it won't (except for threats) force you to unlock a password that is in your mind. Obviously, security here is sacrificed for comfort.

    But we talked about the police and the courts, and it was supposed to be legal. I'm not sure what the judge would do would pass quietly if it was a high profile case. But when it comes to just a criminal from the street, no one cared.

  4. The right is not to incriminate, which means "you cannot force the suspect to open the phone."

    The police are allowed to confiscate the phone and receive a search warrant for the contents, and are allowed to take biometric information from a suspect.

    I'm not a legal expert, but it seems to me that combining these two things to open a phone without the suspect's consent is not a big leap.
