no matter what i do nothing work,but here what i did :

1 - tried all my 10 fingers and my wife’s and son’s fingres . (same problem)
2 - reboot . (same problem)
3 - clear data and factory reset. (same problem)
4 - i installed those version ( and and ) and repeated all the tries above but the problem remain.

the phone came new and it does looks new to me.and the main reason that i bought this phone is that because it was a flagship and have a fingerprint reader.i still didn’t contacted the resseler ( FastCardTech) .i wan’t to confirm first if this problem is sofware or hardware side.

please anyone can help me . :frowning:

just bought it new from do you think i can open a dispute with paypal ?

@Jiraya-Ziane If you bought it recently I highly suggest you to open a dispute with Paypal

first thank you for replying me .i bought it 130$ from and just recieved it yesterday , i will demande a partial refund and keeping the phone because i paied 30$ to duane as fee so if i returned it i have to pay shipping cost so i prefer to keep the phone and demande a partial refund like 30$ to 40$ .so do you think paypal can do this to me? and thank you for your time

First contact the reseller and explain your situation(not necessary to talk about the custom fee they don’t care) then try to conclude a fair deal with him.
If it fails then ask directly a partially refund from paypal and they should be able to solve your problem.
And btw the first time you set the fingerprint you should slide the finger many times on it not just put your finger and wait … don’t know if it’s how you have proceed or not.
Just to clarify :D

About the best build for saving the battery I don’t know for the Mx4 pro ,I use the last build for my Pro 5 and it’s fine it last

Should last the same on your mx4 pro
