I just read this "review", more of an opinion piece really, and thought it really doesn't describe accurately the user experience of the iPhone X. Has anyone else seen it? https://www.forbes.com/sites/jeanba...hone-x-is-the-worst-iphone-ever/#1af2ede57dde I've only had mine a few days but I am overall very pleased with how Apple has implemented the gestures. I think Face ID is great and find it magical that it works in complete darkness. There is, as Jean Babtiste Su notes, an extra step to have to swipe up to come to the home screen but I have a feeling that will be made optional in a later iOS update; some might like that, others might prefer to get to the home screen directly. However, I certainly don't relate at all to Babtiste Su's view that it takes 2-3 seconds for Face ID to work. On my phone it is as fast as Touch ID, if not actually faster. Touch ID, on the other hand, would repeatedly fail if I my fingers were either too cold, too warm or a bit wet. Face ID has never failed to recognise me. I also don't understand the problem he has with swiping up; that has never failed on mine but then again I have no notifications on the home screen (which he says causes the delay) because I find them distracting. There is also a comment in the piece about the tap to wake function which he writes "hopefully" will work. I don't know if he has actually tried it but tap to wake is very effective. And it is not necessary to "fly" one's head over the device; mine unlooks at a distance of about 40cm and a 45 degree angle. That's pretty amazing tech at work, imho, and a very userfriendly implementation of the function. Babtiste Su has a point about how Control Center is invoked; that is less than ideal on a taller phone. What I do is use the "reachability" function (activated in apps too) and then swipe down at right on the middle of the screen. Works extremely well. What also works well I find is the swipe up and hold for the app switcher. I was initially quite reluctant to this function but I quickly became used to it. Contrary to what he writes, it has never failed on my phone.
