The fingerprint sensor lives in the rear case, somewhat controversially placed. Using the thing (with your right hand) requires blindly stretching and blotting out the camera...

The good news is that this sensor is modular and can be popped right off its adhesive for replacement. All it takes is a little heat and a good push.

No word (yet) whether software locks (à la iPhone 7) will prevent a replacement from functioning.
