Top 6 Android Smartphone with Side-fingerprint sensor

    The revolutions of the Fingerprint sensor on Android Smartphone has been overwhelming and it has been embedded on almost every side of mobile phones.

    Starting from the Physical home button which can be seen on almost every Smartphone out there to the back (rear) side which normally stays under the Camera pixels, then it came to the side- (along with the Volume and Switch OFF buttons) and the newest innovations are the In-screen display Fingerprint sensor.

    As a feature, it is available on various Smartphones ranging from low-end, middle-range to high-end mobile phones. Well, virtually everybody loves the Fingerprint reader to be placed esp on the physical home meanwhile, others love it on any side of the phone.
