The question of a feature being liked by current buyers does not indicate that demand will remain high. I can see Apple needing to selling the X at a significant discount next quarter to drive sales. 2018 could be the first year ever where Apple has to discount a 4 month old phone.

Scroll bar blocked in landscape. Super annoying for me who surfs the web.
Aspect ratio is all wrong. iPhone 6 & 6 Plus can be used in full screen to watch video.
For £1,000, that’s too many compromises. Hopefully next year the iPhone 9 should eliminate many if not all of these.
Face ID is the same number of steps as Touch ID — one. Swipe up. That’s it. And it's even fewer steps than Touch ID if you want to view notification details (ex: iMessage contents) -- simply look at screen, no need to perform any action.
No idea what you’re talking about with scrolling in safari in landscape, works fine here, with scroll bars no identical to vertical. But I actually have one, so...
TouchId is one click to unlock and get to home screen. FaceId you need to look at the phone, wait, then swipe up.
This covers some other issues with the user experience:
The notch by default does not cut off video, you have to zoom in for it to cut into video. It plays in 16:9 aspect ratio by default. Also you didn’t my have to wait to swipe up with Face ID. It’s all one motion.

To me Touch ID is superior to Face ID. Face ID fails more often and requires me to type in a passcode. Especially in a car, using Apple Pay or when watching content in landscape mode (which Face ID doesn’t ‘read’) the weakness of this system is the most apparent.
I think Face ID is largely on par with Touch ID for unlocking the phone and is much more useful for iCloud Keychain and unlocking apps. I open my banking app and as soon as the app is open it initiates Face ID and I’m inside the app without any further action in my part. I love it.
