Anyone experiencing problems with the SE and touch ID? Very often it doesn't recognize my fingerprint to unlock the screen.
You wouldn't find it slow unless you've used an iPhone 6s, which is annoyingly fast. I tested the iPhone 6s' scanner multiple times, and many of those times just pressing the button very quickly and letting go to check the time would unlock the phone. Sometimes I couldn't even press the home button and let go any faster, and it would still unlock it.I've had no issues with mine. I registered both thumbs and it unlocks without issue. I've heard reports that it's slow but to be honest I can't imagine it working much quicker.
If you've only registered four fingers, you should use the last print to register your main unlocking finger again. It'll improve accuracy quite a bit.It gets it right 4/5 times. On other occasions, I need to try again and it works.
I have only registered each finger once: both thumbs, and both index fingers.
If I had a real problem with TouchID, I'd register each finger multiple times!
There the same sensor etc. You can keep it fast by updating your print every couple of weeks.Traded my 6 for an SE. I know its supposed to be the same touch ID sensor, but I am finding it much quicker on the SE than the 6 (I have never used a 6s, so can't comment on how fast that is)

Probably better capture this time. My SE doesn't seem any quicker than my 5s was, though I never thought of it as slow. I just think the 6s is TOO fast.Yeah I know they are the same, but it absolutely is quicker. This may be better capturing of my fingerprint this time, or maybe its the faster processor/ram is processing the input of my fingerprint quicker (guess they could all be variables in the process)
That's where I'm at also. 6S is too quick for me. Should be a slider to decide how long we want it to take to unlock and go to the homescreen.Probably better capture this time. My SE doesn't seem any quicker than my 5s was, though I never thought of it as slow. I just think the 6s is TOO fast.
