Slow Fingerprint android 8.1 Google pixel 2 XL

"Anyone else's fingerprint unlock slower than before the 8.1 update. My Pixel 2 XL's screen takes a good second before screen turns on. This just started after performing the update."

Found this on reddit and I am experiencing the same issue. Its not that the fingerprint scanner works slower because I feel the vibration very fast after I put my finger on the scanner but than it takes really long before the screen actually turns on.

Test this out in safe mode to see if a third party app is interfering

Agreed, the time it takes to "wake up" my phone is much slower. I noticed this right away ever since I updated my phone to 8.1
 
Google please fix this! I love my Pixel 2XL

I am experiencing the same thing. It's not just the fingerprint scanner, even using the power button, it takes some time to wake. Significantly and noticably slower than in Android 8.0. Any advice guys? It's bugging me :(

This is the second Thread on which you have asked this question; I repeat that for me, the July update has fixed the issue; I hope yours has the same outcome.
