    Love it! Works great and very reliable on reading. With that said I put on the Zagg shield the performance goes down somewhat and it takes longer to read versus directly on the screen. It also not always grabbing my thumb. It could be that I'm not always placing my thumb correctly with the new screen protector, but before the protector it was spot on every time. One thing to note, I had to delete the thumb print after installing the screen protector and adding a new one after. That helped a lot on getting better performance to what it was like without having a protector on it.

    I have fingerprint reader on but it only accepts fingerprint and does have an option for password as backup how do you access password field and I don't see an emergency button either?

    Figured it out you have to hit power button and slide up to see other options as it doesn't show on always on display

    Can't find a waybto set medical info which says add to your contact in apps but was able to add emergency contacts

    Finger print scanner works great. I had a little difficulty with it when I had the glass protector on the phone. But once I deleted and put in new fingerprint. With glass screen protectors I recommend you put the same finger in twice. Also turn up the touch sensortivity. After doing that no issues with the fingerprint with glass protector. To bad the glass protector did not work with my case. Pop off while putting on my case.

    Glass screen protector did not work with my wife's case either. I felt really bad for her because she took a lot of time to make sure it was aligned perfectly and was free of any dust, bubbles or any imperfections. She did a really nice job of installing it. Then she put the case back on and it pushed up the sides of the protector and now looks terrible.

    I am not using screen protector hopping gorilla glass 7 and the lip of the case will protect it good enough
