Except Face ID will be shitty. That's a given.

Apple was trying to implement TouchID into the X, but ran out of time. How can FaceID be better if it was second-choice to TouchID.

Gruber the Booger:
I'll wait for Gruber to get his hands (face) on it.

Best display ever... In an iPhone. Everything is amazing and magical with this free review unit I don't have to return.

Thanks Samsung for selling us your five year old technology.

Dangling Felcherballs:
Amadeo’s right about the S8. Even though the iris scanning itself happens quickly, the raising the thing to your face every time turns out to be a pain in the ass. With the fingerprint scanner badly placed on the back, I'm now back to typing my pin number in every time. It's fucking annoying, and is making me hate the phone.

Sounds like Apple may have this cracked, but Amadeo is in no way wrong or dumb for raising the concern. This thing is going to have to be able to read faces from all angles - including being while it's being lifted from a pocket, so that it's ready to go the moment the screen is lifted to a viewing angle.

At least this Ron Amadeo fellow regularly writes actual articles, unlike Gruber.
