Face ID is a nice idea, but frankly, fingerprint sensors already work perfectly well. The other uses of the front-facing camera – animated panda emoji, for instance – seem much more important. The all-screen display is neat, sure, but can it match Samsung’s curvy edges? Even cheap Androids now ape the ‘all-screen’ look, and I’m not sure it’s worth nearly £ , to get a screen with round corners.
Wireless charging is a decent extra, although it’s a let-down when you realise it has to be sitting right on top of a little pad to work, which is (whisper it) not really that different from using a charger cable.
