There are some design that are ok to copy and there are some that are not. This I phone screen Design is not one of them. It makes the phone not equalibium. Am not a Samsung fan but the little space at the top and bottom is a better idea.
Chinese manufacturers like Vivo are doing a better screen design job.
So why oh why are all other manufacturers copying a bad design.
I've concluded that most phone designers are idiots copying that awful notch.

Oh Asus you really need to stop embarrassing yourselves. Nobody cares if you have a smaller notch..
AI this, AI that. Stop calling regular algorithms AI. Total bullshit!!
This will be a nightmare for both users and devs. When IPX is announced with a notch design, it took quite some time for all the apps to get updated with notch support. On the vast big sea of Android phones, I doubt devs will update their apps just for the sake of Asus. Good luck to the buyers of this phone.
acemang, 27 Feb 2018did you see asus implementation of the notch? its hidden by software when you dont need it wit... moreThat's silly. The place can well be used by the notification area. So "steps back" are (ac)counted as steps forwards? Increadible.
The notch is a great away to avoid having a bezel on top, if they are to add it anyway, it's silly to even have it anyway, ot defeats the purpose.
Btw what's up with the chin? The point of the notch s to avoid having to deal with bezels as a whole. It's incredibly silly is what it is...
I have nothing against Asus (and in fact use a few of their various devices) but when a company takes an ugly, crappy design and boast about it being "26% less ugly" than its competition, someone should seriously fire that guy on stage.
I am loosing interest in mobile industry due to this madness of design and useless features. I cannot understand the benefits of full screen because all mobiles have grown in height width and also have more weight... Most have even removed 3.5mm headphone jack...
If these trend continues I think gsmarena should shift their focus on something else..
Notch from iphone
Theme from samsung
Wide camera from lg
Asus is a cross breed.
if they can bring this to the market before june...giod for them...
but another delayed release will really hurt them
get redy Asus

Designer Discussing with boss about new phone design:
D: Boss, our new design is finished. Have a look.
B: Um... Where's the notch?
D: We don't need one, sir. This design has the highest screen to body ratio in the phone history.
B: Do you eat grass?
B: BUT SHEEPS DO! You don't feed sheeps with steak.
Add the noth. And why do we still have this useless headphone jack?
B: Remove it.
D: Yes sir!
B: You are dismissed. I have audio files I need to listen to.
B: Now where did I place my adapter?!
Why is everyone trying to follow that freakin ugly notch??? I pray HTC won't follow please please! And hope they stay alive haha
