With the latest software update, Samsung now allows you to disable the fingerprint animation when unlocking on the Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra. The latest update adds an option to disable the Fingerprint animation in the Fingerprint settings menu.
When you unlock the Galaxy S20 devices using the on-screen fingerprint reader, it shows a ripple effect on the screen. You can also find the same ripple effect on the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10.
Some users reported that the ripple effect makes the fingerprint unlocking a bit slow when compared to other devices.

If you are using the Galaxy S20, S20+, or S20 Ultra, you probably facing the close autofocus problem. Samsung rolled out several camera-focused software updates to fix that auto-focus issue but didn’t get it done. Well, there’s a new software update available with a fix for the camera focus issue.
This time we have video proof that the update has fixed the close autofocus issue on the Galaxy S20 devices. You can check the embedded videos below.
To be specific about the camera improvements, the update adds the Close-up Zoom option (only for the S20 Ultra), which can be useful while taking closer images.
In addition, the company has improved the performance of the fingerprint recognition and sound quality of the speaker. Based on the Galaxy S20 users report on Reddit, the device can now take better image quality using Night mode. It comes with the May 2020 security patch.
