AdamBoy64, 05 Mar 2018Notchy notch. More notches. I hope they bring back bezels..Bezels were cancer. Finally they are dead. Stupid pieces of plastic with no functionality. All of you obsessed with looks...
YalokIy, 04 Mar 2018Yeah, sure. Apple was first to set the trend with first 5.5" large screen device, after whom e... moreApple was not the first for using 5.5" screen ratio, the latest yes. Samsung Galaxy Note is the first in 2012. The notch is android the first (essential phone).
Viva Oneplus :D
Just another copycat. nothing special
Notchy notch. More notches.
I hope they bring back bezels..
Anonymous, 04 Mar 2018Nope nobody cared back then because nobody follow, nobody followed the design, for christ sake... moreYeah, sure. Apple was first to set the trend with first 5.5" large screen device, after whom everybody else started to produce devices with 5.5" screens.
Apple was first to set the trend with NFC, after apple everybody started to put NFC in their devices.
And so on with first to set the trend with over 84% screen to body ratio device, the notch and etc. only after apple everybody else started to do the same.
They were even the first to set the trend with device that has no physical buttons on the front.
YalokIy, 03 Mar 2018Nope, people did care. There were nokia, sony, samsung, blackberry, lg fans long time before ... moreNope nobody cared back then because nobody follow, nobody followed the design, for christ sake, nobody followed the design, but when apple releases something android OEM follows it immediately like their next phone model, it does not take other phone years to implement it on the phones. Who cares if they are first, it does not become a trend, when other OEM sees it, they are like yeah whatever, but when apple implements it, that should be on our next phone model
OK so this is oneplus 6. Looks bad.
Anonymous, 03 Mar 2018You forgot the gestures, oneplus 5t new os version is similar to the ipx swipe gesture
The ... moreThis gestures have been there before in 2009 introduced by legendary Palm in their webOS. Then later in nokia's meego, in jolla's sailfish OS, blackberry's 10.x OS.
So when apple copies from android bigger screen device versions, dual cameras, taller screens, notch, etc. then it's true apple innovation because nobody cared before?
If nobody bothered, why did apple decided to follow?
The point is that apple is no longer setting the trend, but following. But when they follow, apple fanboys claim apple to be the one to set the trend they never really did.
Anonymous, 03 Mar 2018Yeah android has face unlock 2012 which can be fooled by a photo, and nobody cared back then
... moreNope, people did care.
There were nokia, sony, samsung, blackberry, lg fans long time before iphones existed.
But in apple fanboy world apple is always first and everybody copies apple.
In real world there is technological progress and customer expectations.
Last year every manufacturer had chance to use a notch and taller screens for better screen to body ratio. Some jumped the bandwagon, some decided to skip. Why is it so hard to accept this and not blame someone for copying ?
Anonymous, 03 Mar 2018now they claim essential has a notch, when ipx was release everybody hated the notch and said ... moreYou forgot the gestures, oneplus 5t new os version is similar to the ipx swipe gesture
The essential phone has only the selfie cam on top, you can’t even call that a notch, it does not even look close to the design of the notch on the ipx
Sure some may have had that years before, but apple executes it perfectly that its worth copying by android OEM, point here is that when other phone OEM implements it, nobody bother to notice it or copy it, but when apple does it, everybody is jumping in the band wagon
design looks like half an iphone x and half an s8/s9....what a shitty, uncreative company
YalokIy, 03 Mar 2018I don't say android or apple is better, you apple fanboy.
But get your facts straight.
Face ... moreYeah android has face unlock 2012 which can be fooled by a photo, and nobody cared back then
Yeah leeco remove the headphone jack, and nobdy cared back then
Yeah metal frames and non removable battery existed before, and nobody cared back then
Yeah there where already big size phones, but nobody named then plus until iphone 6 plus came out, and nobody cared back then
Yeah ph1 and sharp had the notch but nobody copied their design, and nobody cared back then
Yeah there where dual camers already but they copied even the setup and orientation of the cam, and nobody cared back then

But get your facts straight.
Face unlock was on android starting 2012.
LeEco Le 2 had no headphone jack half a year before iphone 7.
Phone with metal frames and non-removable batteries have been before iphones and androids existed.
Apple did copy Plus versions of devices from androids, extra tall screens, and now notches.
There were two android phones (essential ph1, sharp Aquos S2) with notches before iphone x, but somehow after it every android phone with a notch is a copy of iphone x.
Anonymous, 03 Mar 2018now they claim essential has a notch, when ipx was release everybody hated the notch and said ... morelol appleboy... you very much need a deep research :D nothing apple introduced first you mentioned :vvvv don't make joke yourself :vvvvv
YalokIy, 02 Mar 2018Essential PH1 was first phone with the notch! Forget about apple. Android was first to embrace... morenow they claim essential has a notch, when ipx was release everybody hated the notch and said nobody wanted that, but here we are now staring at android OEM with a notch, that was also the same with the non-removable battery but same story almost everybody has adopted it, same with the metal frame, android users say plastic is the best, but same story almost everybody adopted it, same with the headphone jack,android users say they need their headphone jack, but GOOGLE itself remove the headphone jack, most of the OEM now has a phone that does not have the headphone jack, same when the 5s was release the touch id, they mock it that it was easily bypass with the right tools but same story everybody now uses fingerprint unlock, same with face id, before it was release only fingerprint scanning was available and iris scan for samsung, but now they also have face unlocking besides the fingerprint scan on their phone, same with animoji, they say who wants to see their face change to shit, but asus has their own version of animoji, s9 has AR Emoji... android users will just say ours is better after they hate what apple trends but embraces it in the end and say android is better at it :lol:
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2018na you don't know anything......... the notch design was introduced by essential......not iph... moreAlcatel Aqous Sharp started it's first ever full bezelless display in 2014. Fast forward to 2016 it's Xiaomi MI Mix, then in 2017 February, LG G6 started their first 18:9 display followed by Samsung Galaxy S8 in April. Soon in May, Essential phone started it's notch followed by the iPhone X in September which has the huge notch than the Essential phone making it more popular. And finally in 2018, the notch, Bezelless display and 18:9 trend have begun!!!
what an old school trend, notch? so ugly old thing
That's how op6 will look like. I like that :)
Great idea from comment to make status bar black with white battery, network, WiFi icons :). Then the notch would not be visible so much ;)
Op pls upgrade the camera + make the phone waterproof. It will be a flagship killer of 2018 :))
I don't care about the notch and I love the design of essential phone.
The bigger screen to body ratio the better!
That area that the notch covers is unused anyway.
Also, one can have the status bar with black background, so it will blend together with notch.
