    Samsung Note 9 may be launching today with a fingerprint sensor under the screen. They are still not caught up to Apple's Face ID but some have lamented the loss of Touch ID. I would stay with the iPhone regardless but a fingerprint sensor imbedded in the glass would be great to have in addition to Face ID.

    Touch ID anyday. And I have had an X since November of last year.

    Face ID. It takes away the conscious effort of unlocking your phone. Just swipe up and you're in.

    Yeah people will say you're essentially touching the screen so there's no difference with Touch ID, but you need to consciously press it and unlock it.

    I completely forgot about Face ID until I couldn't open my phone for some reason and I got really worried. Turns out it was my housemate's IPX and we have the same background.

    That being said I doubt the note 9 will have a finger print sensor under the display. Most likely the s10 will.

    A superior Face ID. Which I think we'll get next month.

    Definitely FaceID. In a few years most smartphone makers will abandon fingerprint readers as they develop advanced facial recognition and I expect it will start working a lot better.

    I like the FaceID.

    Even if they perfect TouchID on the screen, I do not see Apple going back to it.

    Touch ID. Needing to lift your phone off a table to use it is stupid.

    Or you can just look at your phone while it's in the table?

    I have no finger prints and it has always been a problem when it comes to being fingerprinted. Face ID has been a Godsend! It works so well and I hope it will show up on Laptops and the iPad. As it is,I have to always type in my passwords except on my iPhoneX, the best phone anywhere.

    Having used FaceID since the launch of the X ... FaceID, hands down.

    I don't have an X but I've seen a few people who continually had to lift the phone to their face to unlock. I think I'd find that annoying - especially if driving and I just need to check the latest on WAZE.

    TID for sure

    FID is ok but not as quick as TID

    i love it when i hear people saying FID works all the time....BS its does not...ive had it since january....TID worked all the time...also convenient laying flat on a desk (TID)

    and Apple pay is much better with TID---double press and gone.....TID double press then hold the phone up ...then hold to the reader...

    hopefully FID gets better on the next gen since we will no longer have TID

    How does that work? Unless the phone is directly in front of you, it doesn’t work.

    FaceId 100%. Having a job where I work with my hands, touchid is hit or miss(mostly miss) so FaceId has been wonderful. When sitting at my desk at home I have my X on a wireless charging stand so I have no problem with the phone unlocking when I need to use it without picking it up. When the phone is on a bar top or table, I always pick the phone up to use it or check notifications so people around me don’t try and snoop

    I've gotten quite used to Face ID, and while it still has its flaws I like it and I think its the future so I vote for that.

    They did not include A fingerprint reader under the display. Which to me, goes to show you that this technology is not ready yet due to manufacturing difficulties or Samsung may follow in Apples footsteps and develop their own version of Face ID, which Apple clearly has defined the future 3D facial mapping.

    During my time of using them side by side, TouchID was the better more mature solution. For me orientation and low light FaceID failures made its use a pita. TouchID was far more versatile of the two.

    Quite frankly, I believe Face ID is the biometric security feature moving forward. It is more secure than fingerprints and the tech will only get better. I sat out this years iPhone X but plan to sell my 7 Plus and move up to the iPhone X replacement.

    Tim Cook stated directly face ID is the future for Apple. It won’t be just about the iPhone in the future, it’s likely going to make its way to the iPad and the MacBook. This is just the starting point.

    I would hope they some day have a phone with Face ID with a wide angle lens, whole screen as a fingerprint sensor and voice recognition for a totally transparent security system. If Face ID fails it senses your thumb on the swipe up to unlock etc. You phone will feel unsecure for you at first but in the hands of someone else it will be locked.

    We can wish for what we all want. Reality is Apple has embraced FaceID.
