Homebutton broken, Finger id working after replacement?

Hey guys,

the home button of my galaxy S6 won't work properly. It does recognize my finger id and unlock the phone, but nothing happens when i press the button.

My question is: Is the finger id sensor going to work normally if i would replace the home button?

I know from iphones, that the finger id is blockt with other buttons then the originally installed. Is this so with the galaxy S6?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi Lukas

For Samsung S6 the actual physical button is on the charging port. So all you need to do is replace the charging port and your id should work fine.

Good luck

Thank you for your quick response =)
