    Doug, please elaborate. Is it because they can force you to open your phone if they know it's by facial recognition, but you can 'forget' a PIN number?
    The short answer is that the 5th Amendment protects you from self-incrimination, allowing you to withhold PIN or password info. Physical features are not consider intellectual property and aren't secured by your cognizant and conscious willpower. Instead, they can be used against you even if unwilling or unconscious.

    This is why most corporate security policies don't allow lock features that can be used outside of conscious will. That pretty much limits locking to PIN, password or (in certain cases) complex and irregular pattern matching like BlackBerry Picture Password. Swipe, fingerprint, iris and facial recognition are all off the list.

    I don't believe Apple do things better. It's all a matter of preference. They do things to make money. Now that they added wireless charging, you can bet they will come out with a proprietary version. It's that greed I do not like about this company.
    Er sorry....but Samsung has overtaken apple in the profit stakes. And what, if you or I sell an old phone or a car, we're not going to hold out for as much as we can get??? Enjoy capitalism

    Samsung overtook Apple by selling to the lower ends of the market. Not exactly due to flagships.

    ^^This^^ It replaces religion for a lot of people. I have a feeling nobody has ever thought on their deathbed, "I wish I had that new iPhone." Purchase a phone that helps you do what you want to in life, iPhone or otherwise, and view it as a tool to achieve your goals. Don't worship the device.

    There were some improvements. I don't like the font changes. But, overall, it's an improvement.

    I don't keep anything shady that would incriminate me on my phone so I don't have to worry about cops using my face to unlock it. I'd gladly unlock it myself. lol I keep a strong password on it though in case I lose it.

    I jumped ship the other way. After 10 yrs with an iPhone, I have had it. I was surprised at the features on my Note 8 that the Apple marketing machine had me thinking were Apple innovations. wtf. Guess I had Apple blinders on, but the X finally told me that Apple was out of ideas and it was time to move on.

    Nope! I am not a fan of the iPhone X. I do respect Apple for coming out with a more innovative project, however.

    Absolutely! That is why I love Android - newer iterations come with upgraded/improved hardware and software. Or, those improvements are noticeable and more pronounced.

    It really does look horrible. All those apps taking up the screen. My last iPhone was the 4. I used to throw everything in folders so I could see my wallpaper. Seems so long ago.

    I had originally planned on getting an iPX but I'm just not sold on the face recognition thing. I think it will work just fine but feel like there will be a lot of circumstances where a fingerprint sensor is more convenient (e.g. when phone is mounted in the car and you want to unlock it to start GPS - do I do the Detroit lean???). I like the screen size vs device size, the notch doesn't bother me either. I wish they would've offered a 128GB version. 64 is too small and 256 is too big (for me).

    Though I have an Apple watch, iPad, Apple TV, etc, for $1200 I just don't see the value proposition when I can get an S8+ for < $800 (several deals going on) and have mostly better hardware (iPX has a better processor). Financially, it's no issue at all for me but that doesn't mean I should waste my $.

    That said, I see a lot of people banging on Apple for just now having wireless charging and face recognition yet no headphone jack or expandable storage - Take a look at Google's new flagship phone. Seems a lot of those jabs at Apple should be directed there as well....they don't even have wireless charging!

    This thread makes me think of FB people posting about why they chosen to buy this. Just find it ironic. Can people also post pictures of their meals too?
