1) i don't understand why two actions are need to activate the phone: can't just having face id registeriing my face be enough , why do i have to swipe up?
BTW, the double action to the home screen has always been present even with touch ID, touch to unlock and press to go to the home screen.

We run an eBay business and I list constantly from my phone, switching back and forth between the photos app (to know what I’m listing), the notes app (where I copy and paste my store policies) and the eBay app. That’s a typical work flow. Extremely easy using a home button. To each his own though because I can tell you that two days ago I was in the Orlando Apple store and there were at least 25 people lined up mid day to fork over $1000+ for the X yet I think it’s both ugly and, minus home button/Touch ID and it’s related gestures, impractical.

2) I wish Apple would build into their phone app a service that would check the potential validity of a phone number. It should take no time at all to send that number to their Siri servers to then check against whatever database they would use and then send back any pertinent info to be displayed.
TheCodingArt said:I'm still baffled on how many opinion pieces are passed around Appleinsider now a days as real news... This is not accurate. There are already benchmarks noting that via default settings, FaceID take approximately 1.6-1.8 seconds to authenticate versus TouchID which takes around 0.9 seconds. That's almost double the amount of time. Please check your facts.
