  1. hI, yesterday I replaced my Broken op3 screen. but now my homebutton (fingerprint) isn't working anymore? is there something special how to put back the fingerprint ? I have ordered a new homebutton, will the fingerprint work than? I know gr the iPhone that when you replace homebutton, the fingerprint stops working… is it here the same?

  2. Great editing
    Great scenery
    On point
    Best representation of instructions
    Good soundtrack

    subscribed ,I hope you keep this up 🙂 for all other devices

  3. If I change the button, will the fingerprint scanner work as the old one? Will it recognise the finger if I do the setups so the screen lock opens with fingeR?

  4. OnePlus 3 fingerprint scanner is available.
