Google finally understand, that notch is the future.
better late than never I guess
M33, 07 Mar 2018What's the point of the notch, why I have to use it and how it will help me?It has SUPPORT for a notch. it doesn't mean it'll be though.

Think you can do it better?
Anonymous, 07 Mar 2018I'm still on gingerbread what is this strange P??I'm on 8... P is the LATEST android iteration. versioned 9 (or 8.2)
Circular colourful icons in settings and too much rounded corners on notification panel and volume sliders, Google is mixing TouchWiz with iOS, and it looks..eh... Seriously Samsung Experience 9 looks way better. It might be laggy sometimes but it is user friendly and much cleaner than TouchWiz. Reply only if you have tried or used it.
No, It doesn't look like iPhone. Android is 100 % better than iOS. Android P design is absolutely materialistic. I like the New Icons in Quick Settings.
This is why I start hating google.. They will puke against it and later will eat the same..

its fine to copy the notch idea but to copy also the design of the notch is crap.

However whether they are the first or they are following others, when Apple do something they generally manage put their own mark on it then sell it to the hilt as a major 'Apple' feature (that's Apple marketing for you) - so everyone believes "wow, look what Apple have done!". In this case Essential phone did the notch before Apple, but few cared until Apple made it "an elegant solution".
Though its true that then others tend to (rather shamelessly) trip over themselves trying to copy it.
the notch which was suppose to be the distinguishing design of the ipx and the up and coming iphones to differentiate from other phones is now supported by google. guess google did not hear their android users that they hated the notch because its design by apple
