Looks like the companies need to learn it the hard way - their phones with the notch need to be a failure in sales and only then they will understand.
OMGush, 08 Mar 2018Yuck! Another one of those ugly notches. Should not forget the SDcard expandable and headphon... moreThey should forget them, because they deserve their model to fail and nobody should be buying it even if it does have these things.
Finally pulled the trigger on a Oneplus beefor Christmas, the 5T. Have been wanting Oneplus for a will but its hard to gett hold of in Norway. And now they ruin it. This notch stupidity is in line with Einsteins words: Only two thins are infinat. 1.the univers 2.the stupidity of humans. And I am not sure of the first.
Two other stupid things I realyze with this photos, the fingerprint scanner is getting smaller. Dont do that. make it bigger. And they keep having the 2 kamera sett up, on my 5T the second camera is useless. Why not use all that relastait for one bigger sensor. Why is there no new thinkers in the phone buisness. The Razor phone is looking more and more apiling. Bezels are great for holding your phone, they only remove it sow will dropp it and shatter the glass back.
Best time to join Android Company Design team.
363 days of leave and relaxation, 1 day to check on Apple and the other day to check on Samsung new phone release, Photoshop and send to Boss.
I don't see the disadvantage in the notch thing?
Fine with me if clock and icons get up there, and the full screen goes to important stuff.
What I DON'T wanna see is the fingerprint scanner on the back - THAT infuriates me!
That is what held me back from buying OP5T - and could also hold me back if OP6 gets it.
The only reason they should put the scanner on the back is they puts one in the front screen as well.
It's really NO use on the back - and yes, I've had one before with the scanner on the back.
TechLover1, 08 Mar 2018OMG, this seems to be a true nightmare... (... notches).IKR. Has a notch?? Count me out.
They tweak all benchmarking apps and we can't use only this benchmarks in our real life..
Yuck! Another one of those ugly notches.
Should not forget the SDcard expandable and headphone jack this time.
Anonymous, 07 Mar 2018What is better than a notch? 2 notch, one at upper side and one at bottom side. BoomWhat about 4 Notches... 2 on the side, 2 upper and down... Quick Math.
Seriously... I am a developer. and one of the things I gotta work with is a notch. I can understand if it's a corner notch like the Mix 2S. but other notches are a sore. because of limitations and because you need to remember not to place anything there.
Mzma PIB, 08 Mar 2018Screen 19:9 but only 18:9 will be utilize & left 1:1 on top as a bezel.. very ugly..18:9 will be utilised. The excess will be dead space with the notch, showing black pixels in full-screen app mode or notification icons when not using an app. Sounds like a better implementation than Apple's notch design.
All flagship phones will look similar: notch, glass sandwich with metal frame, round corners, nonremovable batteries, no 35mm audio jack. Boring...
nate0, 08 Mar 2018"The notch"...can we come up with a better gimmick than that lol? Just sounds like a problem ... moreWell part of the screen is missing (Like having a massive area od dead pixels)...of course it's a problem, not a "feature" as they want us to believe. I'd never buy such a monstrosity.
