How slow? I thought mine was slow but there’s an option to detect your face without you looking at the phone so it just detects your face whenever it wakes up. Much faster
Probably half a second or bit longer, definitely slower than when I first got it. Yes I turned off the eye blink option or whatever it's called from the onset as it was unbearable slow with it

But it was always slower than touchid quite noticably but now it's to point of unbearable almost . I could just pick up phone and it'll be unlocked, now it takes conscious effort and wait for it to unlock

That’s why I think they have too much of our information. I don’t think people should be targeted with ads or put on some watch list if they’re not a “good customer” in the eyes of a retailer and then this information also gets resold.

Mine’s pretty fast always. If I get the passcode screen, I click cancel and swipe up right away.

I’ve also had no issues reported so far, coating rubbing off, unresponsive areas, green line, volume hiss... knock on wood. I’m very happy with the X over the 7+ I had.

Same. I have no issues yet on my iPhone X but I'm still going to put it through a bit more abuse before I'm happy as you never know. I rather symptoms appear now then past warranty if there is an issue.

Hackers say they broke Apple’s Face ID. Here’s why we’re not convinced
Key questions persist about $150 mask hackers used to unlock Face-protected iPhone X.

Lame. The vietnamese dudes do not show close-ups of the lock screen before the face reveal. Look how fast he swiped right after the alleged unlock, lol. Some shit isnt right there. I think if you have a legit model to fool faceid you would have no issues with macro shots and slo mo everywhere. Not a single one.

apple.ca live chat response to why AC+ costs $50 more when you try to add it to an X that's already been activated/on your support profile?

'that's weird. sorry for the error. go into the store or call us to sort it out'

somehow I think the man is uninformed.

give lots of head for sick knee fadez, give lots of lap dances for ca$h wallet fades. Always pop that leg when kissing for dope honey combs, knee lots of mans in the crotch for killer whiskers, low ride like an og for them stacks. And traintracks? Only achievable by a legend in the denim game
