Needless to say every 0.1 second counts, I want to stay in the flow as much as possible.

Current method of unlocking iPhone X pisses me off is really annoying - it requires 3 independent interactions.

You can raise the phone or press the side-button and then swipe up. You do not have to wait for Face ID to complete in between.

This is much faster compared to double-tap, wait for Face ID and swipe.

There's no way currently to access the home screen faster, for example without having to swipe up.
