    During the keynote, It was kinda funny that the presenter's state of the art Face ID didn't respond during demo, and he had to switch to his backup iPhone.
    Are you guys still going for the iPhone X or sticking to the models with touch ID. Plus X now that we know it's not "starting" to ship till November?

    I really wonder how this Face ID will work in dark environments.. if it struggles then you'll have a lot of upset buyers. I'm still a skeptic.

    I noticed that too, I also think it's going to be an issue if your in your vehicle and want to make a call with your device and are going to have to look at the device to unlock it? I see some major accidents happening. Even though your not suppose to text or use your device while you drive, many folks do, sad to say.

    Apple just failed to have the phone unlocked first. It required passcode like TouchID does every now and again.

    I thought it was user error. He didn't do it right. That's how it looked to me.

    I think the whole point of that ‘fail’ was to subtly point out that it’s not without its hiccups.

    IMHO it was just their version of a disclaimer to expect some difficulties with Face ID.

    I guess if you go back to the iPhone 5S did it fail during that live presentation? I don't think so. Again, if this happens fairly often it'll be unacceptable. To me, the idea of constantly holding the phone up to/or close to your face just to unlock it instead of resting your finger on a button seems a bit backwards Imo.

    Face ID didn't fail. It worked as its supposed to. The keypad said, "Your Passcode is required to enable Face ID ". It only says that if the phone hasn't been opened in 48 hours, or if there's been 6 unsuccessful tries. And I don't think there were 6 unsuccessful tries. Just guessing here.

    Yeah, I do too. The X would need a lot more to offer than it does for me to pay $200 more, especially with Face ID. Not that I don't trust it, I would just rather have Touch ID.
