I also like fingerprint option in A5 2016. In A7 2018, A52s and S20FE, when you remove fingerprint lock from lock screen, it asks to delete the fingerprint data mandatory. However in A5 2016, I can set swipe option for lock screen without deleting the fingerprint data. So, I could lock-unlock essential apps through fingerprints.

My concern is that anyone can access my phone with swipe unlock and access contacts and dialer in case of emergency. On other hand sensitive apps remains locked with the fingerprints.

I think it's because that phone is not getting any updates anymore. So there is no way to implement this new method.
