    Although the 5s and 6 use the same first generation Touch ID sensor, is there a difference in the speed and accuracy between the two models?

    If so, won't the SE also give an improved experience over the 5s Touch ID - although it won't be as good as the 6s second generation sensor?

    Anyone?

    i find the sensor in 6s is too fast. when i want to check time, i always press the home button once. but with 6s, it goes right into the homescreen because it's too fast. so i have to press the home button on the edge using nail. and to check time using the power button is not convenience. i wish the SE's touch id sensor is about 70% speed of the 6s. that would be good.

    From technical notes hat I've come across, the iPhone 6 Touch ID has a higher resolution sensor, which means it should in theory be more accurate. But I can't find the source to confirm this.
