It almost feels like every major Samsung smartphone in recent history has been released with at least one major flaw and just to add to that cliché, new reports from several users on XDA forums are claiming that this time around, Samsung might need to fix the fingerprint scanner even before the phone has begun to sale officially! Apparently, quite a few of the S9 and S9+ units are exhibiting a strange issue where the fingerprint scanner stops responding completely and can only be fixed by rebooting the device. Let's hope that the issue is only software-related and can be easily fixed with an update, because if it isn't, then Samsung is going to have to suffer huge losses.
SamMobile has officially asked Samsung about the issue, but no reply has been provided yet. We will keep you updated about this, so stay tuned and hold off on buying the S9/S9+ for a while.
