I get the same problem too, not as bad as 2 in 10 but I do have a protective glass on my screen so not sure if that is the cause

No protection on the screen, and my recognition rate is about 9.5 out of 10,so...

Thanks for the replys I do have a screen protector on from new but the fingerprint success rate has dropped a lot since the last update, might just take the screen protector off and see does it improve.

Ah, you might want to delete your stored fingerprints and rescan, sometimes android degrades the quality of these on updates

I did delete all the stored fingerprints stored and started again but no improvement at all I'll try taking the screen protector it's somewhere to start 😁😁

Have to say, one thing I regret from my 8 was the rear fp reader, it was faster, and more instinctive placement-wise, but I got used to the 9's front one now

I had the mi mix 3 and the fingerprint reader was super 1st time all the time.

I've just removed the screen protector,  deleted my fingerprints and added the same finger twice, my Mi9 now unlocks much quicker first time

I believe they have optimised the power to the fingerprint reader for less battery drain but means it's less accurate with a screen protector on.  I am still happy they have done this as I would take battery savings over a few misreads. if you record multiples of the same finger it's more accurate and if you press slightly harder on the glass it works more accurately if you're using a screen protector.  
overall I'm quite happy with it, coming from a mi5s the hit rate is slightly better. The best I used was the redmi note 3 special edition but I do like the asthetic better on the mi 9 without the fingerprint reader on the back
