Thank you Motorola Atrix for coming up with the idea of a fingerprint scanner in a smartphone. TIFTFY.

Swiping a finger on the sensor vs touching the sensor. Thanks Atrix for a crappy idea that never took off.
Apple comes up with the touch sensor, and now all these rumors pop up about smartphones with touch sensors. Nothing wrong with riding coattails, I guess.

LG called, they wanted me to let you know that you totally forgot about this:
It came out long before the Motorola Atrix...

I had that phone, also was first I believe with a 1ghz chip.
Scanner was iffy at times but it worked for the most part.

I could use this on my next Lumia.. LG isn't doing to bad nowadays... The only thing I would like to see from LG is a little more original design.. If they could find there own language, like Sony did, then it would be awesome....

I'll be damned if someone made a screen sensitive enough to detect the depths in a fingerprints.That would be a game-changer

Apple copied from Motorola. Remember the Atrix, it the first one released with a fingerprint scanner !

Except you had to swipe your finger across the scanner. This is way different.

If somebody copied someone with the fingerprint scanner, it was Apple. But to be honest nobody really copied anybody. Fingerprint scanners have been on phones for pretty long time already. It's like saying that Samsung is copying Apple when it uses a camera on it's phones.
