So to be clear here you are comparing an OS to a piece of hardware--the bias is pretty obvious

Hi, thanks for your comment. The Android P Beta is coming to lots of phones. It's now really up to Apple to up the ante for iOS 12.

@MTXGUY74 How is that bias? The iPhone X UI is different from other iOS. They are just comparing the latest Android OS to Apple's flagship device's OS

To be honest the new gesture control is a step backwards. Especially on the home screen. Recent apps (especially when you have 25+) is harder to scroll through to find what you want. There's no "Clear All" function anymore. Also to get to your app drawer to open an app (which is faster than scanning through your recent apps) you have to double swipe up or do a clunky look long swipe up. It's very disjointing. Also scrolling though apps with the home button being slid left and right is a double edge sword. It's slow for one and if you don't find the app you want your going to have to commit to opening one because once you stop it's going to open, like it or not. I understand the purpose of making the apps show 1 at a time like little pages (couldn't do the copy/paste any other way) but the cons outweigh the pros.
