    How to use finger scanner with one hand in Galaxy S5

    Samsung Galaxy S5 has a really nice fingerprint scanner option. I want to know is it possible to use it with one hand also in a faster way. Because I tried to use it and it slow down a bit. I have to hold the home button for quiet long time to scan out and then unlock the screen. I want to use it fast.

    Is there any gesture or kind of settings available? I had seen a few videos which are not associated with fingerprint scan. Thanks for your helps in advance.

    The feature that you are talking about is available in apple devices. In that you can just tap and unlock the devices as per your need. It is quite simple but I am not sure about the Samsung.

    You have to check those things in the settings panel. Go in the security section and in the option where you enable fingerprint scanner.

    Just see if you have any more option there to unlock more fast compare to now. You have to slowly scroll down to use.

    There is a way available for the same. You can unlock your home screen with single hand. For that you have to just tap over the home button hold there for a second and then slowly scroll down in a straight line.

    Do not move your finger. Just swipe down in the straight line and your thumb must be over the home screen. In this way you can instantly unlock the home screen of your device quiet easily.
