LeEco is the latest Chinese company which has been making waves in India. In less than a month, they’ve already sold over 200,000 units. It’s popularity comes from the features and value for money it offers. We’ve been using it for a while now and you can check out our full review here. Also, you can check out 8 reasons why you should buy LeEco Le 1s and 4 reasons why you shouldn’t.
LeEco 1s comes with a fingerprint scanner, something that many phone manufacturers have been trying to bring to bring on low end devices. But whats different here is that the fingerprint scanner on Le 1s is actually good! In fact, it’s accuracy is better than the fingerprint scanner on iPhone 6! The fingerprint scanner is right above the LeTV branding behind the phone and comes with a shiny mirror finish which blends well with the phone. Also, the placement is really good because that’s where the index finger naturally rests while using the phone.
To use your fingerprint to unlock, ensure you’ve already enabled passcode lock. If you haven’t, open settings and go to password security. Over there, choose your screen lock method(PIN or Pattern) and choose your password.
Once the passcode lock has been enabled, go back to the settings menu. Here, enable ‘Unlock with fingerprint’ and it’ll ask to record your fingerprint. Now, you’ll have to repeatedly place the finger you want to record on the fingerprint reader multiple times. Once that’s done, the fingerprint reader is enabled for that particular finger. You can record multiple fingers and even rename them.
Once the fingerprints are recorded and the screen is locked, just place the recorded finger on the fingerprint reader to unlock the phone. Thats it! It is pretty fast and accurate too.
