As a non iPhone X owner, I want some real world feedback on how Face ID has worked in the real world. Is it a pleasant surprise? Is it good enough for you considering the entire package? Are there times that it frustrates you?
It is tremendous. Exceeds all expectations. Never frustrates. Way better than touch ID. More leeway with faceID. No more lining up your finger/thumb on the little circle. Just wake phone - swipe up - Bang, you're in. Even better is apps and websites that use it. Just look at your phone on your app that has a login requirement (which you are doing anyway), and it logs you in. It is very sweet and smooth. Goodbye touch ID.As a non iPhone X owner, I want some real world feedback on how Face ID has worked in the real world. Is it a pleasant surprise?

LOVE Face ID when purchasing content from iTunes that require my Credit Card, it will prompt you to double click the power button and it will scan for your face. Very quick and effortless.
As for unlocking the phone. It has been great for the most part. Sometimes it stumbles in poor lighting and certain angles. I re-did my Face ID yesterday as I shaved my beard since Friday, just wanted a more accurate reading of my face programmed in to the phone. But I do hear Face ID learns your face over time, we'll see.
I can't wait to use Face ID for Apple Pay. With the Touch ID my finger would be sweaty sometimes when checking out at the register (Florida life) and Apple Pay would fail. Shouldn't have that problem anymore with Face ID!
FaceID works really well for me, much better than TouchID ever did. I have however found an issue with getting it to work with my Wayfarer Polarized RayBans. The phone cannot verify me with these sunglasses on. I wonder if it has something to do with the technology and the polarized lense. I have a pair of polarized Oakleys as well that I tried this morning, and that one failed a few times as well at first, but then started to work. I will have to do more testing.
