The apple scanner was hacked too, just so the conversation isn't one sided. And it was done the same way the s5's was hacked. ;)
I would stick with a PIN or pattern lock to secure your phone. Is fingerprint lock going to be sufficient most of the time? Yes. Is a fingerprint lock as secure as a strong PIN or complex pattern lock? No. In fact, people have figured out how to hack the S5’s fingerprint lock and it isn’t even available in the US yet. It’s kind of a neat feature despite that, but I do think the main reason it is on the S5 is because Apple put one on the iPhone 5S.
