    iPhone X: 1. Double tap side button. 2. Look at iPhone X (take off sunglasses if you're wearing any). 3. Wait for prompt telling you to hold your phone near the card reader. 4. Payment gets processed

    iPhone 8 and earlier: 1. Hold iPhone near card reader with finger on home button. 2. Payment gets processed.

    I would much rather have the home button Touch ID sensor. Seems way easier and more convenient.

    I thought Apple pay was annoying anyways, but I get your point. With TouchID it was a lot simpler.

    I haven't tried it myself yet, but I heard you just place your phone near the reader then make sure your face in in range then boom....eliminating #1

    I do find it annoying since before all you had to do was hold up your phone even when it was in standby. But I guess there's no way around it with FaceID.

    Already used it. No issues. Double tap the side button, it recognized my face immediately, and I placed the phone next to the reader. Faster than Touch ID.

    Apperantly you can prime the payment in advance.. Double click side button as you are raising to view face ID, wait for prompt from card reader..

    Anyone wearing sunglasses inside deserves all the annoyances one can throw at them. :p
