Hi everyone,

Been awhile since I've posted on here. I work in an industrial environment so a case is a must and I prefer the 2 piece style ones where it has a soft inner liner, which is good for drops on concrete and the harder shell, which is good for bumping into valve stems and piping. My current case for some reason prevents it from reading my finger print no matter how I position the phone. I have no issue with the case off, but at work that's not an option.

Thanks in advance.
I just got this case today (picture below has slots on the side that expose the metal sides):


Fingerprint scanner works flawlessly (even without redoing my fingerprints). Its Urban Armor Gear:
