I have recently made the transition from an iphone 6s to 10 R. I'm loving the better battery life and face ID. The combination of a bigger phone and no home button has been a bit frustrating.
Just stumbled upon the ability to assign home to a custinm gesture in the commands section. I have found this to be a huge improvement For now I've opted for 2 finger swipe left. It is making life a lot easier, so thought I'd pass the suggestion along to the masses..
