1.8 seconds minus 0.91 seconds times "dozens of times a day" equals... a minute, maybe?

It does add up quickly!

Or, use that helpful workaround (aka, the way its designed to work) and lose no time at all! Phew. I'm glad that reviewer uncovered a secret way to unlock the phone even faster.

How long before Apple issues an update to break that secret, unauthorized workaround? How did they let that get out into the wild?? Jony Ive is probably furious!!!

Unlok'd:
I usually pick up the phone, give it a few seconds to adjust to its new position, say in a loud clear voice, "Hey Siri, initiate FaceID authentication system", and then sit perfectly still and stare at the device for a few minutes to make sure the authentication protocol is complete before I move on to my desired task.
