  1. I cant believe apple didn’t make the list. I think they made a very attractive/sleek and functional fingerprint sensor/reader

  2. Obviously there are more phones with the feature not making the list,though if we’re talking of top 5, an IPhone should have been there and the OPPO R7plus doesn’t have any business in that list..
