"It makes a fine place for a fingerprint sensor."

Really? In my opinion it's a horrible place for a fingerprint sensor, and in PhoneArena's very own HTC One Max review which has the fingerprint sensor in the exact same place as this Huawei phone and is also a 6" phone it states,

"The fingerprint scanner implementation on the HTC One max hasn't been executed in the best possible way, as we shared with you in a recent article.

One of the several things that bother us is the sensor's awkward placement. It is on the back side of the smartphone, right under the camera, and since we don't see it when we try to use it, we often find ourselves swiping the camera lens instead of the scanner."
