Coming from a 6+ I had jailbroken and having very similar swipe gestures this was one main feature I was looking forward to on the X. Going home is super fast as well as multitasking either up to the right for fast normal multitasking or swiping left or right on the bottom(sometimes in a n pattern cause its fun. I really think the gestures improved speed In everything I do with this phone. Its blazing fast compared to a home Button. Also its pretty easy to use reachability even with one hand after some time with it.
