Despite the generally overwhelmingly positive reaction to FaceID, there are still plenty of whiners complaining about Apple worsening the user experience by "removing" the TouchID feature. The thing is simple: the comparison between FaceID and TouchID is meaningless. The comparison is between FaceID and TouchID on the back. There isn't a bezel-free device with TouchID on the screen. It does not exist. So what is better in a bezel-free device: FaceID or Touch ID on the back? we all know the answer. And if you think front TouchID is better than FaceID, Apple has not removed the feature: it's right there in the iPhone 8. If you want a bezel-free device with front TouchID, well, that does not exist, you might as well complain with General Motors because you can't buy a self driving flying car. When and if a front, bezel-free TouchID device enters the market the convenience comparison with FaceID will make sense: but i guess the battle will be with FaceID version 2 or version 3. Until that moment, any whining on Apple "removing" touchId from the Iphone X makes no sense.
