Time to get hands on with the Lowdown.
Beyond the unlock function, Face ID makes buying apps and contactless payments much easier, all you need to do is look at your phone (which most people do every chance they get anyway!)
AND (drumroll please…), the new face detection technology is needed for the iPhone X’s most important new feature…Animojis!! Ok, maybe not the most important, but definitely the most fun! You can now send a short video/audio message with your face becoming an emoji such as a monkey, dog and or talking poop (everyone’s dream)!
Is it worth it? I would have to say it is. The iPhone X is a showcase for how an expensive luxury phone should look and feel. Face ID is the future of phone technology, the full screen display is gorgeous, and the whole thing just works as an Apple product should.
I’m off to send some more Animojis! Peace out!
