Watch: Vernee Mars’ side-mounted fingerprint scanner in action


Vernee Mars presale is over and the first customers are beginning to receive their new handsets. Since the Vernee Mars sports a not-so-common side-mounted fingerprint scanner, some people were worried that the unlocking mechanism wasn’t up to its expectations.

That’s not the case, though, as the issue is most likely to be on the user side; some people are not accustomed to the narrower than usual recognition area. This is why Vernee published a video showing their customers how to properly register their fingerprints!

Check out the video:

Once the fingerprint is registered correctly the unlocking looks pretty snappy, that’s why Vernee also decided to compare it to the iPhone 6S and Meizu Pro 6:

Other than for the side-mounted fingerprint scanner the Vernee Mars also shines for its all metal back cover and new arc antenna band. The phone, which sports 5.5-inch FHD screen, is powered by a MediaTek Helio P10, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The Sony 13MP IMX258 camera features PDAF and has an aperture of f2.0. The Vernee Mars also supports quick charge and comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. If you want to know more, head over to our post about the Vernee Mars specifications.

Verne Mars’ retail price is $249.99 but it can be found now for $199.99 here.
