This year’s launch of the iPhone X also included the introduction of Apple’s Face ID. Apple thinks that its facial recognition camera and hardware on the front of the iPhone X are among its biggest technological achievements. However, other Android phones have had facial and iris recognition hardware and software of their own. Samsung, as usual, is the leader in this effort, adding those kinds of features to the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, along with the more recent Note 8 and the older, and explosion-prone, Note 7.

However, Apple feels that the Face ID features in the iPhone X surpass those made by its competition. In a recent interview with Bright.NL, Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, put the company’s position in very blunt terms. When asked to comment about how smartphone makers, such as Samsung, have similar features to Face ID in their phones, Schiller stated, “They all stink.”
