    I have seen a few good ones, but this one really showed how fast and fluid the device is with the new gestures. I am looking forward to having one.

    So after you use Face ID to unlock, then you have to swipe up to open the home screen,....really ? With touch ID, you touch it and it opens up to the home screen without swiping. Am I missing something or is this a double step that touch ID does not have ?

    Two things:

    1.) Face ID is much faster than I thought it would be. Almost instantaneous when looking at that female.

    2.) I barely even noticed the notch during the entire review of the iPhone. It really wasn't that distracting.

    I was skeptical at first but now I definitely want one! This is the best iPhone X hands-on I've seen so far. Thanks for posting this!

    No need to press the power button. If you hold the phone up it "wakes". Once it reads your eyes/face to unlock you swipe up. Two steps. Touch ID is one step.

    Not what the man in the review did.
    The iPhone was already in his hands.

    It’s the same thing. Pick up your phone and swipe to get to home screen. Or pick up your phone and push the home button to go to the home screen. Same thing. One step.

    Raise to wake is a feature introduced on the 6S. That in itself is one step then you either swipe up (on iPhone X) or touch/press Touch ID (older devices and based on the toggle in the Accessibility settings)
    There has to be two steps for people to see their notifications before going to home screen.

    How do you know you can't have the iPhone go to the home screen just by looking at your iPhone to unlock it? You don't. You can do that with current TouchID, it's called "rest to wake" and I'm sure something similar will be implemented on the X. That actually means you will have to do less things with the X to unlock and go to the home screen than every other iPhone with TouchID.

    It's really not that much of a difference.

    Yes, but I had situations where the iPhone was locked and already in my hands.
    That is why the CoMotion Processor does not detect the "pick up motion". With TouchID no problem: You power on and unlock the device simultaneously .

    It is like electric vehicles: Some day I will accept to drive a car on battery if it matches/exceeds the benefits of a Diesel Car: Range & Availability.

    But not instantaneously.

    As far as I can tell (and obviously until the reviews come in, none of us have much to go on), the process of swiping up and Face ID unlocking the phone is simultaneous.

    If the phone is in your hand but switched off, a tap and swipe isn't going to take any longer than the press and hold needed for Touch ID to recognise what you want to do.

    At 8:33 in the apple employee had been looking at the screen a few seconds and the lock icon was still showing locked, only after swiping up did it finally authenticate correctly, so quite slow in that instance. There seems to be a wide variation on how long it takes to authenticate.

    Only when she swiped up did the phone go to home screen. The delay was in her swiping up. The video doesn't clearly show how long the phone took to unlock.

    Bottom line is, we need proper testing to verify all this. But it does seem to me to be a lot easier than Touch for your average user.

    continued OT.....

    It's curious how much control we will have over the ID. The rest-to-wake is what I have always used and it's almost ideal.

    Now, just looking at the phone without a swipe up? I'm not sure why you would even need the swipe.

    The screen looks wider than the 4.7 inch version, not sure why apple says its the same width?

    When he said "Hey, Siri" in the video it activated it on my phone. And I don't like the way that guy pronounces his double Ts. Phone looks nice.

    Because people want to see their Notifications without it immediately going to the Home Screen just because they look at their phone.

    It shows that it unlocks pretty quickly. Watch the video again and you'll see as soon as he points it at her face, the lock icon at the top of the screen changes to unlocked. But that doesn't get you in the phone. It only unlocks it. Then, you swipe up to get to your home screen.

    I happen to like that. I like being able to look through my notifications before I go in to the phone. So I like that it will unlock and then wait for me to choose to go to the home screen.
