    I am very impressed with it, no fail whatsoever! Even when i am in bed, my head half way in the pillow in the dark, quick and easy! finally makes sense with notifications when you press them and they open directly without having to move your finger for Touch ID.

    I LOVE face ID. On my Note 8 - I had to type in my pin if I was in a dark room.... The only problem with face ID in the middle of the night, if you can't open both eyes because you are still sleepy.... LOL

    I’ve had my X since launch and while I was initially impressed with FaceID over time I’ve decided I don’t love it and would rather have touchID. I find that I’m typing in my password multiple times a day as opposed to occasionally. It’s not because I did a poor job of scanning my face so much as there are many instances in the day where touchID would be faster and more practical. My dislike of faceID doesn’t make me hate the phone but I wouldn’t be sad if they got rid of it.

    Face ID works pretty well and is neat...but I didn’t have any gripes with Touch ID. I have to admit that Touch ID was a tad more reliable but I know Face ID will only get more reliable in the future. It works 85-90% of the time me thinks.

    I have had my X since 11/30. I’m not too fond of Face ID. It doesn’t work from the angles I normally use my phone from. I have to hold it up to unlock. Super annoying. I wish they did rear touch like Google did with the Pixel.

    It works but to me it's slow af and requires an extra step compared to TouchID

    Face ID will get better. I appreciate the tech that the X has that makes it work. It’ll get better. Though it’s not 100% now I can say that it works good enough for my personal toy X’s.

    I will say this about face recognition, my twin brother can unlock my device, so I think that’s so cool because we live together and can use each other’s phone if we had to without any issues.

    One thing that gets annoying, especially for people like me in colder areas is that I have to keep pulling down my scarf in order for me to unlock my device.

    It would be great if you had the OPTION of using Touch ID or Face ID. That’s be nice. Perhaps in the future.

    Agreed!
    I really wonder if Apple will ever bring back an embedded Touch ID within the display.

    Works great for me and is just as fast as TouchID on my 7.

    I mean it works great. The biggest difference is that my 7+ would already be at the home screen when I reach for it in my pocket or as soon as I pick up off the table. Can't do that with the X. That extra swipe after Face ID needs to go too. I don't need to watch a video comparison too. My 7+ TouchID is definitely faster at unlocking vs FaceID. I've done my own comparison.

    Oh ok just that I saw you said it was slow af and that hadn’t been my experience at all as I find them both unlocked and ready to go as soon as I raise them toward me for use.

    Looks like a lot of work in that video to work face id.

    Even if unlocking with TID is technically faster I’m not sure it’s enough to make more than an academic difference. What are we talking here...1-1.5 seconds if that...and that with our first production iteration of Face ID? I think it will only get faster and more accurate.
