My buddy has the S5 and his gf the 5s. the S5 was so bad at reading the fingerprint, he turned it off. the gf touched it once and worked.

Apple has been constantly improving it, starting with iOS 7.1, and then again with 7.1.1. Hopefully it will be flawless in upcoming software updates or even in the new iPhone.

We love this feature. We've helped several clients find their phone, Once even with police involment.
Definitely. This critical battery feature is huge.

My barber said this feature can be used even if the phone is turned off. I don't know if she was right.
