The biggest benefit for me is not having to consistently stop to scan my fingerprint. Since the phone recognizes your face, websites and notifcations on the lock screen work without delay. It’s pretty amazing.
Face ID is faster and works Far more often for me than Touch ID ever did. I’d say Face ID works 99% of the time and it’s so fast I forget it’s there until it doesn’t work. I love it. Me thinks those who criticize it have never actually used it. I also love all the applications I can open with it.
The camera takes up bezel on every single phone ever made.The only reason it even exists is because the cameras take up less real estate than the home button. Apples attempt at making a bezel less phone. (except the notch takes a bite out of that bezel less experience)
I tried Apple Pay on the X yesterday. Just double tap the side button and Face ID authenticates, put your device to the reader and ding! The transaction is completed under a second.The only thing that I can see in the touch vs Face ID argument is that when using Apple Pay it is smoother with Touch ID. Although I must admit that I do prefer Face ID for every thing else.
I agree, it does work well. What I meant was, with Touch ID, just pull your phone out of your pocket, thumb on the button and “ ping” job done. Not a big problem, I just think it was smoother.I tried Apple Pay on the X yesterday. Just double tap the side button and Face ID authenticates, put your device to the reader and ding!
