    Thankfully, that has not been my experience. FaceID works better than TouchID for “me”, but as I’ve stated on numerous occasions, TouchID is definitely the faster of the two.
    That’s why I went with the 8 Plus. I use Apple Pay nearly every day and Touch ID is lightning fast.

    8+ -- X isn't getting all the love it deserves IMHO

    Folks will like the X-styled phones more and more. Face ID will get even better, though it’s already good. Once you get used to not having the ginormous bezels using a device with them can feel odd. The gestures get natural pretty quick and tap to wake is nice. That said, I could still easily enjoy an a 7/8+. If they do, in fact, come out with the rumored 6.5” X style that’ll be even better, IMO.

    Agreed. People also act like Face ID is much slower than Touch ID. That is false. All you do is swipe up and your in. Not sure how that much longer if even longer at all. Face ID is great for a first generation. I still remember how slow and awful Touch ID was on the first generation scanner.

    I think Face ID also gets faster and faster on my devices. It rarely fails now so I don’t know if it’s continuing to learn my face. I love just looking at my device and having it unlock. It’ll be interesting to see if Samsung and other Android OEMs can seriously compete. I read that the current gen retina scanners, etc. fail in comparison to Face ID.

    Exactly!!! In using both the X and the 8, I’ve found that I enjoy the fact that the X keeps my notifications open on the lock screen, since I have previews set to only show when the device is unlocked. This way I can decide if I want to address them or if I want to ignore them without going all the way into the device. I can’t do that with my 8. I have to unlock the device then pull down Notification Center.

    EDIT: Didn’t know I wanted this feature until I had it LOL

    I don’t act like Face ID is slower than Touch ID. It is slower than Touch ID. You swipe up and it takes forever for that animation to unlock and take you to the home screen. It is instanataneous with 2nd gen Touch ID. Same thing goes for apps that use Face/Touch ID. The animation is slow for Face ID.

    With my 8+ all I have to do is rest my finger on the home button and my apps come up. With the X I didn't like that I had to look at the screen and then take the time to swipe up. I know that it seems like a small issue but to me it was an additional step to getting to your apps. If I am driving I can just rest my finger on the home button and I have access to my apps.

    There are a lot of people that like the X and I am sure in time i would have as well, but to me the phone right now does not justify the additional cost I would have needed to pay in order to purchase it.

    Enjoy that home button now because Touch ID will be a thing of the past on all bigger phones going forward.
