Samsung Galaxy A50 vs Oppo K1 | In-display Fingerprint Speed Test Comparison

Hey guys, Gautam here and I am back with another post. So, today I will be doing an in-display fingerprint scanner speed test comparison between the Samsung Galaxy A50 and the Oppo K1. So, let’s get started. 
 
Before we start, I will like to tell you that Oppo K1 comes with a screen guard pre-applied whereas Galaxy A50 does not. So, I had to use a third party screen guard on Galaxy A50. And both phones are running their latest software version. 
 
I will start with fingerprint addition process. So, here is a side by side comparison. 
 
Since face unlock can be an issue during the test so I will remove face unlock from both these phones. And then, I will remove all the registered fingerprints. 
 
Okay, so it’s time to add my fingerprints again. This will also give you an idea on how much time it takes to register a fingerprint on both of these devices. 
 
Both are looking good so far. 
 
Oppo K1 takes the lead mid way. 
 
And Oppo K1 wins the fingerprint addition round. Galaxy A50 is at 80%. 
 
I actually tried to add my fingerprint once again on Oppo K1 but I received this message saying that this fingerprint already exists, which is actually a good thing as the fingerprint scanner is able to recognize my fingerprint. 
 
The fingerprint is now registered on Galaxy A50. So, I will now add it once again to make sure A50 is able to recognize my fingerprint properly. There is no restriction on Galaxy A50. I mean you can add the same fingerprint as many times as you want. This can be both good and bad, whichever way you look at it. 
 
It’s now time for the real test. The in-display fingerprint speed test. First I will wake up the screen by double tap, then I will use the power button to wake up the screen and finally I will lift the phone up to wake screen. 
 
In each scenario, I will first show Oppo K1, then Galaxy A50 and then both side by side. Let’s begin.

For Galaxy A50, we have the option to increase touch sensitivity which is always recommended if you are using any kind of screen guard. So, I have it enabled. Oppo K1 does not come with any such feature. 
 
So, first is double tap to wake screen scenario. 
 
First is Oppo K1. 
 
Now Galaxy A50. 
 
And now both side by side in slow motion. I have synced the videos with my thumb touching the fingerprint sensor at the same time. Oppo K1 took 13 milliseconds whereas Galaxy A50 took almost a second to unlock. 
 
Oppo K1 unlocks first with Galaxy A50 almost a second behind. 
 
2nd scenario is to wake screen with power button. 
 
Again first is Oppo K1. 
 
And now Galaxy A50. 
 
And now both side by side in slow motion. Again, I have synced the videos with my thumb touching the fingerprint sensor at the same time. Oppo K1 again took 13 milliseconds whereas Galaxy A50 again took almost a second to unlock. 
 
3rd and last scenario is to wake screen with phone lift up. 
 
Again first is Oppo K1. 
 
And now Galaxy A50. 
 
And now both side by side in slow motion. Oppo K1 again took 13 milliseconds whereas Galaxy A50 again took almost a second to unlock. 
 
In the end, the results are pretty consistent. So, whichever way you wake the screen for scanning fingerprint, there won’t be any speed difference. 
 
Oppo K1 is way better when it comes to in-display fingerprint be it adding a fingerprint or unlocking a phone. In all the tests it performed almost 4 times faster (13 ms) than Galaxy A50 (60 ms). So, yes Samsung does need to improve their in-display fingerprint scanner.
