How to Use Finger Print Scanner in New Samsung Galaxy Alpha


I am not a hardcore fan of Samsung android smartphones. But one thing I mostly liked on the Samsung smartphones are their display technology called “Super AMOLED”. It reproduces true colors and it’s less energy hungry. The main drawback of Samsung smartphones, from my point of view, are the plastic body used that looks cheaper. Anyway things are changing now. Samsung came up with a new model of their Galaxy series smartphone called Galaxy Alpha witch has an awesome carved metal body. I was lucky enough to play around with this device at the recently concluded GITEX, the annual consumer computer and electronics trade show, in Dubai. Here I am not going to the details of the specification of this wonderful smartphone which is going to compete with Apple’s recently unveiled iPhone 6. Here we can learn how to enable and use the finger print scanner in Galaxy Alpha.
