Sorry for being late to the party, I only recently switched to S20.

I used to have S10 and since the fingerprint sensor is relocated, I cannot always put my finger on the right place.

It also seemed strange to me when fingerprint sensor and password were both accepted the input box will overlap with the sensor area, this was never a problem on S10 because the sensor was lower.

Thank you for your time and kindness for answering my question.

Hey there.

Components have been moved around internally. Also, the sensor has improved since the S10 and had to be moved to accommodate the newer sensor.

I read some tear down and they said it is the exact same sensor as S10?
Well I certainly agree it maybe due to rearranged internals such as the need to put in a bigger battery.
