    It worked great right away for me, although during setup I must've placed my thumb on the sensor fifty times before realizing I had to tap 'continue' first.

    I only use one fingerprint though, since I almost always grab my phone with my right hand anyway.
    Might not scan another fingerprint if that increases the chances of TouchID becoming slower or more prone to error.

    Taking screen shot during lock screen mode is difficult due to touch id feature normally i added my both thumbs as a fingerprint which unlocks my iphone and creates problem in taking screen shot

    I love it. Sometimes I even try it on my mini and get sad when I have to swipe.

    My first i5s the Touch ID didn't work that well. It was about 50% chance it worked. Got my replacement i5s about 2 months ago and it works 99% of the time.

    I just got my 5S this past Saturday, but I have no issues with the Touch ID. In fact, I have it set up for by my left and right hand depending on what's going on at the time. No complaints from me at all so far!

    Once your fingerprint is scanned, it should be able to read it from any angle.

    I'd suggest spending some time unlocking it, as it apparently continues to improve it's 'image' of your fingerprint as you use it.

    My Touch ID seems inconsistent. Maybe its behaving like that because of the smudges but as far as I can remember the sensor works well without me having to constantly clean it for it to recognize my thumb until 2 days ago. Do you guys need to rub the sensor with your fingers often for it to recognize? like 2/3 of the time? I also notice that it is extremely difficult for it to finish reading my thumb when I do a re-scan even if I clean the sensor. My thumbprint seems fine. It is starting to bother me only since 2 days ago but I really hate going to apple for a replacement.

    EDIT:
    I worked it out. seems like putting a tape over the home button solved the problem when there are smudges on the sapphire glass itself. you can try it yourselves. i don't know how but probably that transparent tapes attract less smudges than the glass itself. all i know is that the recognition significantly improved i can confirm that.

    It's very reliable for me, rarely have a scan fail and it works fast.

    Well, I just bought myself a 5S and it doesn't work 95% of the time, other 5% of the time being after I wipe it clean. Doesn't work after 2 unlocks because I have EXTREMELY sweaty palms. It is in no way Apple's fault but I feel like I'm being short changed anyway.. I didn't chose to be born with sweaty palms. I'd be crazy to clean it every time because in the time taken, I might as well just punch in my code.

    Default Is Touch ID working well for you?

    Ok....so I'm a little late to the tech party with the whole fingerprint scan thing on the 5S lol. I also just got my 5S this past week coming from a 5C. When I got the 5C last October at the time I wasn't interested in the Touch ID, but upon passing up the 6 this release to get the 5S, this time around I decided to give it a go. Prior to my 5S, I've never locked any of my past iPhones. I have to say, I'm extremely impressed with the functionality and accuracy of it overall. I've programmed all 5 spots, lol, in case I don't just use one main finger every time to unlock. I've even set it up for app/itune store purchases. Now, as for my passcode, everyone in my house including my parents know it just in case they needed to get into my 5S for any reason

    I'm not one to worry about having the latest & greatest, hence why I passed on the 6, but now that I have the touch id I'm sorry I didn't go for it last year upon getting my 5C. Oh well !! I have it now and it's awesome 👍

    Default Is Touch ID working well for you?

    Same here Pink. I never used to lock my phone. Im a homebody and just never had a need to, but my touch ID works so great that I use it locked now. I've not had any issues at all with the touch ID not working properly, so I am so happy about that.

    I used it today for the first time downloading an app, that was really simple. I think I def made the right choice sending back my 5C within the 14 day trial period and getting the 5S.

    Same here, no issues. Although I have found if my hands are dried out, cold or just a teeny bit damp from not drying them completely the sensor won't accept a print, and it has to be tried again, which is understandable.

    Usually when this happens to me, it'll take on the 2nd or last shot. But if my hands are really cold from outside it just won't work lol.

    I will say, it seems to simply work. Even when my hands are cold, it still works. Rather impressed with that part really...

    Wow yeah, Ive heard about people having a lil trouble if there hands are really dry or really cold, like Pink said. But it seems only issues are from things like that or having your finger/thumb at an off angle. Which as Pink also said, is understandable. I think they did a good job on the sensor over all. I'm really happy with it and it sure is a quick way into the phone and buying apps.

    Yeah, when I say cold, I'm talking from being out in 18 weather for a short time, no gloves, and then coming into the house and try to unlock with Touch ID that's a fun one to try & do
