One month with FaceID
I’ve had my XS Max one month today. I love the phone, but am still not sold on FaceID. It’s nice being able to unlock your phone when you are wearing gloves or when your fingers are slightly dirty. However, FaceID fails about 25% of the time when touchID only failed about 5% of the time (and most of the time I knew when it would fail).
I’ve noticed that FaceID will fail when my face has an expression other than natural. For example, I was eating the other night and tried to open my phone. It wouldn’t unlock until I stopped chewing.
Another disappointment is that the phone will not unlock if your face is partially covered. I bike to work in winter and wear a mask that covers my mouth and nose. I was thinking that it would be able to see my eyes and forehead, but I guess it needs to see more of my face.
How has your experience been with FaceID?
