Manufacturers clearly are running on empty in terms of new, useful tech for their current models. All have seemingly hit a ceiling in regards to real innovative tech and are reduced to offering up various gimmics or random features and passing them off as enhancements to phone feature set, Apple included. The reason my V30 is probably the last so called flagship i'll waste the amount of money i paid to get it. Phone makers like Xiaomi, Meizu and others are putting out just as competent handsets for half the price of the established android oem's.
Notch,seem many peoples don't like you, they shouldn't adop you, and let u die,gone and hopping New born better than you.
Anonymous, 01 Mar 2018But youd waste it on the x??Nope, I never said that. I would prefer to use a 2003 phone over the X.
I love android but this is cringe inducing.
Why manufacturers have to carbon copy every iphone looks.
AnonD-1825, 01 Mar 2018Really thin? S9 has quite big top and bottom bezel.S9 has higher STB than iphone x...(S8 did for sure and s9 hasn't changed all that much.)
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2018But the mayority of the announced phones with notches are ips led, not oled.... And that is t... moreAsus is OLED.. guess the displays go there. Atleast couple of them. With the sales they have, I don't think they'll be softening blow of less orders by apple..
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2018It's a step back. As someone who is using face ID for months now I honestly can't go back. ... moreWhaaa? Aligning your face to a phone is way more of a hassle than just touching the screen! Screen fingerprint ID is much more convenient than Face ID. Apple chose to remove the fingerprint reader because they had to for a larger screen, at the time. The technology has already caught up and now Apple are stuck with that ridiculous "hold up your phone to your face" trash. They "painted themselves into a corner". But don't worry, they'll "invent" "Screen ID" next year.
"The notch is spreading for no good reason" ..
Then, What is the BAD REASON that it is rising you are thinking???
I hate these notches. I hate the removal of the headphone jack. Come on, Apple. I used to respect you, but then Steve died and everything went downhill. Also, the Vivo APEX is damn stunning in person. Trust me.
For those people complaining about Apple, the fact that many OEMs copy its design isn't Apple's fault. No one is forcing them, and yet, they still copy. The fault lies on the OEMs, who are so lazy that they won't come up with something new and refreshing.
I know more than someone will call me iSheep, so don't bother.
Totally wrong and misleading headline here... All these bezel less phones including the iphone X are MI MIX look alikes!
Samsung Galaxy X and Vivo Apex will be game changers, by then the notches phones will all be in the trash.
OogWay, 02 Mar 2018When I posted not too long ago that Android makers will follow suit very soon, some say there ... moreYep. I want a removable battery too. Haven't had i choice for a long time. I want a 16:9 screen. No choice anymore. It's like communism. Once they decide what's "best" for you, that it, nothing else is offered.
Imperator Neubaticus, 02 Mar 2018Yeah the notches are ugly. What vivo did with their concept phone apex is one of the workaroun... moreIt's a step back.
As someone who is using face ID for months now I honestly can't go back. Fingeprint recognition is a throwback and the sooner companies skip it completely the better for them.
Face ID + retina recognition is not only the future of security but also of navigation (fingerless navigation). The more androids are being left behind, the more second rate they would look...
The rating feedback I've seen on sites that allow ratings from visitors have shown that no one even likes this trend. The last one I saw for the notched Huawei showed 80% of voters hating it, and 20% being 'done with it'. No likes or love. Hopefully these thoughts translate to sales, so manufacturers realize this is a horrible idea, and we move past this quickly.
Apple be like "call me ugly or whatever, you guys gonna follow me anyway"
When I posted not too long ago that Android makers will follow suit very soon, some say there is always a choice not to get phones with a notch because it is Android. Right...... Even Google is now prepared to be notch friendly with the next Android version. To be honest, Android makers ALWAYS pick up after Apple. Gone with the 3.5mm jack and now with the notch. Do consumers still have any choices when buying the flagships? Nope. We are FORCE to take what the current trend is. Suck it up people. But seriously, I will rather get iPhone if notch become the in-thing. At least devs are supporting only one and only platform as compared to Android.
