A fingerprint sensor is now a veritable smartphone staple and after going through a zillion of those we are now convinced that it somehow makes more sense on the front than on the rear. The phones which we continued to unlock using our finger impression even after weeks of usage were the ones that had it mounted on the front. So, if you too agree with the sentiment and are looking for best phones with reliable and fast fingerprint sensor on the front, here are a few options that you can consider.

Moto G5 Plus

The Moto G5 Plus is one of the most popular phones in its class, particularly for online buyers. Just like the Moto G4, it has a front mounted fingerprint sensor, but this time Lenovo has added some more functionality to it. You can use it as a home button or as the entire navigation bar even. And you can long press it to put your phone in sleep mode.

Other than that, the hardware and camera performance is also up to the mark. You can buy it for 16,999 INR. Or if you are on a tighter budget, you could also consider its younger sibling Moto G5 that too has a front mounted fingerprint sensor.

Vivo V5s

On the front, the phone offers a 20MP selfie camera and one of the best fingerprint scanners you can score for under 20,000 INR. If you are particularly enthusiastic about selfies, the overall experience of Vivo V5s should be pretty compelling.

The Gionee A1 (Review) is another selfie-first phone that gets the fingerprint bit right. Apart from being a selfie phone, it’s also a big battery phone.

Samsung Galaxy On Nxt

If you are looking for a familiar brand that can live up to your after sales support expectations, Samsung Galaxy On Nxt is a great option in this budget. The phone has a few limitations, but it’s still a very decent option for basic and moderate users. And it’s got a fingerprint sensor clubbed with the home button.



Samsung recently also launched the 64GB variant of Galaxy On Nxt. If you prefer buying from offline stores, you can opt for the Galaxy J7 Prime instead which is basically the same phone with a bit lesser storage.

  1. The mi 5 constantly keeps getting offered for less than 20k.I think it should probably be on this list and it trumps all of these phones. More powerful. Better Cameras. And the looks 🔥
