I agree with some of these and disagree on others. 100% agree on control center. I love control center, especially in iOS 11, but it is awkward st best to reach one handed. Which brings us to reachability which I both agree that the motion is too exacting but also think the swipe down to pull the screen down is more intuitive. I love the way Face ID works and love the lick screen. It’s nice to have the notifications hidden until I look at the phone. Enough people agree with your point that I think they should maybe give an option to turn off the swipe requirement. As for the app switcher, I believe they’ve made that slightly more difficult in an attempt to discourage people from closing apps. Apple always says it’s not necessary in iOS. I always close Facebook and have discovered that if I just pause for a second when I make the gesture to open the app switcher I can then swipe up to close it. It isn’t one continuous motion but it works pretty well. As for the physical features, wireless charging necessitates a glass back and a nearly bezel less design gives you an odd display ratio. I will gladly take the trade off. I love the size of the phone and the screen.

Sometimes I wonder if Apple gets so caught up in being cool, they forget to ask how people actually use these things. Like grabbing the phone off the nightstand in the dark to check a text. With Touch ID, I reach over, grab the phone with my thumb on the sensor and give it a quick glance. With the X, you'd have to stare into the thing and hope the IR camera can adequately scan your face in the dark. Or, how 'bout the quick glance in the car. I don't want to have to pick up the phone and hold it in front of my face. And no, I'm not an advocate of viewing a phone while driving, but let's face it, there are times many of us want to give a quick look while minimizing the time our eyes are off the road. Just seems like a feature that has more negatives than positives...
