grease, dirt and cuts
Yeah, I read that it could handle changes in appearance such as the ones that you described. Beards too, if I recall correctly. Can Face ID unlock your phone while you are seated at a desk, or do you have to pick it up and look straight at it?
I never thought of someone having such problems with fingerprint readers. That is very interesting to know. But I am a guy who does not work with greasy or dirty things and washes his hands perhaps a little too often.
I like the capacitive fingerprint reader on my Nokia 7.1. It is very accurate, and the rear placement makes it easy to unlock one-handedly after I pull it out of my pocket. Having to pick it up to unlock it when it is placed upon a flat surface can be a bit of a pain, though.
