The Honor 5X features a second-generation frame-free fingerprint sensor with higher accuracy, and takes merely 0.5-second to unlock the lock. It should offer smooth performance, also because it doesn't have a RIM around it to hinder the sensor. The fingerprint can be set up in 6 attempts, and can record up to 5 Finger prints. Moreover, Honor 5X's fingerprint reader accepts 360 Degree impressions, and can be used with wet hands as well.
