First, let me get a couple obvious issues out of the way: 1. I require an iOS device for work (I write software for Apple users), so don't go there. 2. I'm not asking about the potential implications of a Big Brother all seeing/all knowing invasion of privacy and security implications; I'd just shut it off. My question is for iPhone X owners...how reliable is the Face ID? Does it get tripped up with beards, glasses, hats, etc.? I'd prefer to go with the latest and greatest for a number of reasons that mostly have to do with work, but if Face ID is unreliable I may just go with an iPhone 8 and the fingerprint scanner. Over all impression of the X series phone?
