We were very lucky to get our iPhone Xs on November 3. This phone is amazing: quick; slick; and sick!
I’m still learning the features but I can report that the facial recognition is solid. I haven’t had a fail yet.
I’m already used to the missing home button. It’s so much easier to just swipe up for the home screen.
Many apps already support facial recognition, so that is a good sign.
All killer, no filler.
Speaking of screen, I would recommend a case. These are expensive to replace. We bought Apple leather cases (Red for me), but I have seen many third-party cases that look fun and functional
Wireless charging is handy by the nightstand. Overnight, I tapped the screen to see the time. It worked so well, I put my iHome alarm clock in the shelf.
Early review: this phone easily is the best iPhone ever.
