NEW TRICKS

The Mail on Sunday - Event - - TECH -

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.
