From the lock screen, the OnePlus 3 once again proved its superiority and managed to unlock the screen in a much faster time. Even after animations on both devices were switched off, the OnePlus 3 still managed to surpass the iPhone 6s.

Overall, the OnePlus 3 clearly managed to win this fingerprint scanner speed test, while the iPhone 6s simply couldn’t keep up with the “flagship killer”.
