You're doing it wrong... no reason to press the side button...

Hi and thanks for the comment. It's still slower than Touch ID when you tap the screen or use raise to wake.
I've updated the story. But certainly tapping the screen or use raising to wake is more convenient.

Funny, because I can unlock my old-as-f^*# Samsung smart phone by swiping the security pattern in less than half a second. But, apparently unlike most Apple customers, I don't have secure military documents or classified materials on my phone so I can readily get away with the low-level security offered by a swipe pattern.

I have raise to wake turned off because it's always coming on in my pocket. I honestly don't know how people use it without false wakes all of the time.
I imagine I'd pick it up while hitting the side button as I do the iPhone 7. Then by the time I swipe the screen the FaceID would have already authenticated me because it had already been awake before I looked at it. I guess we'll see.

Sorry but watching you fail to understand how to turn your head in circle is like watching someone fail to understand how to turn a doorknob lol.

Can you calculate how much time you save per day by not needing to unlock the iPhone with Touch Id everytime you want to interact with lock screen notifications?

Is this honestly a real issue? It seems like a first world problem to me. You're measuring the time it takes to get your phone active with sub-second precision? Time is precious, but not that precious. Relax and slow down a little.
