Changing the home button : will the fingerprint still work?


I was before a technician in smartphone fixes but I'm now done with this.

A friend asked me to replace her broken Samsung S6 Edge screen. Her original screen is white but she want to change for a gold one.

I couldn't find any information on the internet about the fingerprint sensor. Does it still work after a replacement ? Because I know it's not the case for Apple branded phones.

If someone has already experienced a home button with fingerprint sensor swap on a Samsung phone, please let me know if it still worked after you were done with your job.

Thanks :)

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi, i would like to know if i have to replace the Home Button on the Samsung S7 will the fingerprint continue to work? If yes is there any criteria i must look into when buying the Home Button? Since same is not available in shops here i will need to order from Ebay or Aliexpress. Thanks for your reply.

PS: the paint on my S7 Home Button has been completely peeled, it is appearing black and fingerprint unrecognised.
