Does Face ID Make The iPhone X More Secure?

I haven't seen a Face ID system yet that can't be fooled by crooks. Whether its a picture, animated GIF, video or the tried and true brute force physical attack (shown below) you can easily defeat biometric security systems.

Even under US law, an officer with a warrant can force you to depress your fingerprint on the Touch ID sensor to your phone and unlock it in order to carry out a lawful search of your data. The same can be said for an officer can holds up your phone to your face and unlocks it with Face ID.
