Apple iPhone 5s:

Whenever we talk about the fingerprint sensors, there is one name that can never be forgotten and it is the iPhone 5s.

It was launched at a cost of INR 52,500 around 2 years back and it is still one of the most amazing phones from Apple. The price has now slashed down to less than INR 30,000 and I believe it still has the most dependable set of hardware and an amazing fingerprint sensor.
