So It's been 13 days since my wonderful iPhone X arrived and honestly it has mostly been 13 days of phone bliss. The phone flies, I like the Animoji much more than I thought I would, the camera is wonderful and the screen is awesome. Not having a home button took exactly 30 seconds to get used to and the software and apps all seem to work flawlessly. The one thing that is keeping this from being a home run to me is FaceID. I hate it. Now I have had 2 iPhone X's already as my first one came with scuffs right on the FaceID portion of the phone and so it seemed like that was causing issues but today is day 7 with my new one and I still have issues with it. It never works on the first try for me unless I have it directly in front of my face, it has trouble reading my face in the dark, specifically right before bed (maybe that's because I am laying down and have an extra chin), and it just seems so slow compared to TouchID which I never had issues with. I like a few things like the hiding of notifications until it recognizes your face but that's not enough for me to consider it a success. Who knows, maybe it's still learning and will eventually get faster but for now, I'd rather have TouchID 100 times out of 100.
