Yep. that wouldn't pass a mod approval unforts.

you are the OEM of yourself. you get the features you want. voila. end of story. and everyone earn regardless.
And this is why pixel/nexus phones past jb are less and less true android experiance. Never bought a nexus and never will buy a pixel. Waiting for axon 9/redmi note 5/fix for undetectable sd card on my redmi note 3
Veelog, 13 Feb 2018How I love reading the comments!Yeah I do. The community gets cucked either way. I want to embrace the horns. Remember, notch is the empty space so it does nothing but it houses the camera and speakerphone/receiver.
I hope the horns have media buttons instead of a full screen that ruins the immersion.
Anonymous, 12 Feb 2018Soon the Apple iPhone will have his little brother: "AppleDroid" :).Yeah....we unite AppleDroid, maybe it will better.
so Google encourage vendor to have notch on their products...

What exactly is Galaxy S8's "problem" (Well besides the ridiculous aspect ratio but it has nothing to do with the "need" for a notch)? The notch itself is a priblem...just like dwad pixels. Missing parts of your screen is not a feature.
It just means the OEM doesn't have to hack their Android build to deal with a notch.
Notches are going to happen. They are a solution to a problem.
Obviously the notch stuff is really a pretty minor update.
Android building more Assistant into itself. Making it easier for apps to use Assistant. That's the important stuff.
Anonymous, 13 Feb 2018Android Pathethic is more like it. Now I won't ever be upgrading my phone!! We will move on and laugh at you.

Anonymous, 13 Feb 2018It's up to OEM to adopt so at least there's a choice.Yea sure just like we had a "choice" with non-removable batteries, 18:9 abomination. Soon the 3.5mm jack too. They are a cartel and when they decide to screw us, all of them do it, no real choice.
HA! Android fanboys were laughing at the IPX notch and now Google is going to embrace the notch. Just like the history of 3.5mm jack, soon all Androids will be having the same notch designs. I just knew that Apple is and will always be the trend setter.
incoming androidPathetic says notch is ok, android do it better.hahahaha.
is there a function to compile all the mocking comment on iphone notch when it first came out? it would be HUGE IN YOUR FACE moment
The P is called Peppermint, they considered Pistachio Ice Cream but decided against it.
But what short of mind you are. The notch is an alternative appearance that will be optional activated by the manufacturer only for those models or in any case activated by menu in case someone without notch prefers to group notifications, etc. Phones without notch will not be affected and you're already hysterical. Worse are the black bands in the 18:9.
android users always target the notch, mock it, hated it... now google itself is embracing it. :p the irony of things in the world.
