The future of the smartphone means breaking old habits. With Apple's iPhone X this mostly means replacing presses with swipes and the fingerprint ID sensor with facial recognition.In my 10 days with the iPhone X, I tried to fool its Face ID feature. FACE ID Facial recognition works fairly well for unlocking the phone, even if you're sweating and shaking during a run.I have to remember to hold the phone several inches back for Face ID. And I have to avoid squinting; Apple says eyes need to be fully open.ABOUT THAT SCREEN The iPhone X screen has about the same surface area as the iPhone 8 Plus in a body that's almost as narrow as the regular iPhone 8 . But video isn't as large as on the Plus. Video tends to be optimized for the dimensions of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus (and older models), so there's wasted black space on the X's wider display.HOLD ON The phone feels more comfortable than the 8 Plus, but also more delicate.Apple says the glass on both the X and the 8 is stronger than before.
