While Apple is getting rid of fingerprint readers on their phone, other companies still prefer this type of biometric sensor. However they would like to make it more and more comfortable to use, and by implanting it to the screen is a really good method.

1. Vivo Nex

Vivo was the first company came that came out with this type of biometric sensor. The phone from the front is pretty much a screen, there are no notch, camera or sensors on the front. However the way they solved the selfie camera is so impressive. A little electric engine push the camera out on the top when it’s needed, and pull it back when finished using it. It got a flagship hardware (specs below) with top range performance and a big battery.

3. Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition

Well, this is our favourite phone with an in-screen fingerprint reader. It has the same specs as the Mi 8 Pro, but has a transparent back (it’s transparent but what you see is a sticker, but it’s still looks cool). There is a notch on the front and flagship hardware under the hood, however it has infrared face recognising unlike the Mi 8 Pro.
