So. This matches what I found. BUT, I think people are thinking about Face ID speed completely wrong

Touch ID is a _separate action_ that you have to take to do anything on the iPhone's home screen.

If you want to open a notification, for instance, you have to tap it then Touch ID to open it. With Face ID, it's already open when you tap.

Turning on iPhone X is as simple as swiping up and your finger is already positioned on screen, ready to act. With Touch ID, it's 2 actions.

So, while I understand the 'foot race' aspect of which is faster, and it's clear Touch ID is right now (but probably won't be for long)...

This misses the point of how you actually use your phone day to day. I've found it to be much more fluid and faster to actually 'do things'

If you just unlock your phone and then do nothing, Face ID is slower. But I'd guess that's much rarer than tapping a notification.

Anyway, stop watches are stop watches, but using it is different. Face ID is early days too and it should get a lot faster.

Here. Let me show you in a video what I mean that Face ID in use is different than Face ID artificially clocked.

I cut Twitter loading on 8 Plus because lol . Anyway, if we're stopwatching that's 2 sec vs 3.2 sec from cold start.

I can use Touch ID by having my finger on the sensor as I pull it out of my pocket though.

I agree, you can, but I don’t think that’s intuitively what most people do.

to be straightforward: there are behaviors with Touch ID that will end up being 'faster to look at your home screen of apps'.

But contextual use is vastly improved by Face ID.

Face ID speed is fine, but it’s not faster than that. Maybe if there was an option where you didn’t have to swipe to unlock?
