Do any Android phones have fingerprint scanner like iPhone 5s?

Not at the moment. I think there was a HTC phone released with a fingerprint scanner on the rear but it was a different type and didn't seem to work too well from what I've read online. I don't expect we'll see any comparable to the iPhone 5S just yet. The company that Apple bought (Authentech) to acquire the fingerprint technology, patents and so on is said to be a good 12 months ahead of it's closest rival. So I'm sure by the end of next year we might start to see something emerge.

There is the almost 3 year old Motorola Atrix which had it built in to the power key.
There's a China Phone called Konka K5 with one (plus lots of other security features).
Most recently though, HTC One Max has launched with one.
