Greetings MIUIers,

Welcome to our new session of Quick Discussion. Our last discussion was Will FHD Dominate HD Display in Future? Vote Here!  Here comes another interesting discussion, "Which Is Better Position For Fingerprint Scanner? Front or Rear."  Faster fingerprint scanners are the buzz word and become a common feature for smartphones.  More often fingerprint scanners are put aside in either front or back and for some devices, it's even in sideways. But let's not talk about it and check ' Will there be any difference if it's placed in different position?'  ' Will there be any change in hardware or software?'. Technically there's no such difference in hardware sensors and software if its position was changed. So where is the difference, well it lies in the user point of view!. Each user has their own way of holding and placing the device in different scenarios. Let's have a brief look at some pros on the rear side and front side fingerprint scanners.

Pros, If It's On Rear Side



  • 1. You can easily use your index finger to unlock it rather than your thumb.
  • 2. When on the back, you have 3/4 fingers accessible to fingerprint.
  • 3. Easier to use when holding a device.


Pros, If It's On Front Side



  • 1. With front fingerprint sensor, you would be able to use it keeping on the desk also...
  • 2. When a device is placed on a table, or any surface, or in car-phone holders having a front-facing fingerprint sensor is ideal.
  • 3. Front side scanner can also be used in multiple ways depends on vendor: swipe across the screen, move between apps, view/dismiss notifications etc.
  • 4. All this is not possible if the sensor is at the back, as you will really have to strain your finger to do so much while holding the phone in your hand.

Simply it "depends" or "it is a matter of personal choice".

Even our Xiaomi launches its devices having front and rear facing fingerprint scanners.

Front facing fingerprint scanners -
  • 1. Mi 6
  • 2. Mi Note 3
  • 3. Mi 5
  • 4. Mi 5c
  • 5. Mi Note 2
  • 6. Mi 5s
  • 7. Redmi Pro

Rear facing fingerprint scanners -
  • 1. Redmi Note 3, Note 4 SD
  • 2. Redmi Note 3 MTK, Note 4 MTK
  • 3. Redmi Note 5, Note 5 Pro
  • 4. Redmi 4 India
  • 5. Redmi 5
  • 6. Redmi 3S Prime, 3X
  • 7. Redmi 3 Pro
  • 8. Redmi y1
  • 9. Mi Max, Max 2
  • 10. Mi 4S
  • 11. Mi A1
  • 12. Mi MIX, MIX 2, MIX 2S

For me, my selection will be rear side... because

1. I found it easy to unlock the phone
2. Less dust on sensor
3. More importantly, a lot easier way to take pictures. Specially selfie

Front fingerprint is better. It's more confortable to unlock the phone, it makes easier the usage, it is placed in a convenient place when the phone is under a table or when you need to unlock it right away. Also it gets more functionalities, such as gestures to control the smartphone, lock the phone with a long pressure in order to avoid breaking the power button.

All of my devices with FP are back FP so now I am familiar with that. But sometimes I wish I could have it on the front side,  for example when the device is placed in the car phone-holder. On the other hand with a back FP it is always one easy move to drag the phone out of the pocket and put the index finger on the FP.

the thing is if it is in the rear side then while lifting or while inserting it in the pocket sometimes accidentally the finger gets touched to the sensor and the phone gets unlocked, it has happened in my case where an app was opened and some gibberish thing happened...

It would be nice to have sensors on both front and rear. Front for when you don't want to pick up the phone and rear for when you already have the phone in hand.

I always prefer the fingerprint always on the front because it does not change the aesthetics of the phone. On some models the fingerprint on the back of that circle for fingerprint even looks ugly. I dislike.
I like the Mi6 type fingerprint.

For me front is more versatile because sometimes I need to unlock the screen when the phone is lying down and I can't pick it up for example if I'm working on the car and I don't want to smear the phone in dirty oil I just wipe my thumb on a rag and use it to unlock the phone. Also, sine I use my phone for most navigation on my smartphone it only makes sense to use the thumb to unlock it as well!

I think the best of place fingerprint scanner is ^Front side^, Because I really believe much more than 50% of smartphone user don't want to hold the phone up from desk or anywhere to use fingerprint scanner, Are you right?
I was use back fingerprint scanner in the last 2 years ^Nexus 6P^ by I was not use fingerprint scanner before But I also don't like back fingerprint scanner, from that's day until now I'm okay with Mi5s in the last 2 year and now presure with Mi6 also full 1 years old now. I prefer to front side fingerprint with Mi7 in the future, Ihope that.

Front side is better. You can configure others fingerprints and unlock with several fingers, in the back you only can use one finger to unlock it. I'm using an Mi5, very easy to unlock when he's in the desk, or in a table, with rear fingerprints how would you unlock it?

The  side is the best place for the fingerprint scanner- allowing more screen space and avoids camera placement

Why not both?
It is depends on the way that you are using your phone, If rest on a table, front, but not back button. I like the new way to put a big fingerprint scanner on the main screen, it's valid for any moment, you must to register the fingerprint of the proper finger.

It is the rear side. I have to say, before using my refmi note 4, which has fingerprint censor mounted on the back, I really though this orientation would be akward and uneasy. That was until I started to use one, I found out that the rear mounted is really really convinient and not at all uneasy. Plus, it leaves room in the front screen to increase the screen to body ratio.  However, totally different case when the in-display censor starts to get easily implemented

i prefer that the fingerprint scanner will be at the side buttons on the screen, because xiaomi now a days, screen body ratios are gettin bigger and better, looking at the screen on your phone looks pretty good, but at the back of the phone, there's only the camera and the MI logo, nice and smooth looking from front to back. i suggest that the upcoming new phone from xiaomi will be at the side along with the buttons 😉😄

Rest size is perfect. The most Smartphones are so big that I have to use my second hand to hold the Smartphone - and THEN I can use one of my fingers to unlock my phone...

If it's on the rear side I can take it out of my pocket, hold it in one hand und just swipe my finger over the fingerprint. It's just fast and easy - with one hand only!

according to me rear side in much better because 1st of all it can be easily reached and the rear side finger print sensor is placed at a convent place and 2ndly it does not take up the front side space so there will be less bezels and more screen so in my opinion rear side finger print sensor is the best solution and it also enhances the design of the phone

rear side is better because if sensor is in rear side you can unlock it with the finger easily but if it is on front side you will either have to use your thumb or other hands finger and can be unstable while handling. So I prefer Rear Fingerprint Sensor.

I prefer font side. But rear side is awesome because of grip. Fingerprint should be placed in front or rear according to smartphone grip.
