AdamBoy64, 13 Mar 2018Well, that's a new one. People like the notch..? haven't heard that before... ever.Do you know OPPO? Everybody in Internet hate it but in Reallity OPPO its one big brand espicially in ASIA.
??, 13 Mar 2018not a fan of the notch, but I love oppo's advertising, always striking. this is especially clever.that is what I just meant
notches are used for notefunction just like a notefunction LEDs
what I meant in the beginning is that no matter how small is the notch it will become a bezel wen you used in a non notch supporting app like an FHD video on the iPhone X or a game and it was a big problem on the iPhone X sense all the iOS were meant for 16:9 so notches were useless on the IOS
but the android on the otherhand was a global free open source adjustable OS so it was the perfect HOST for the NOTCH VIRUS
but simply having a bigger screen isn't that great sense it drains the battery much faster
the solution ? OLED notch phones MUST have it for example LG V10/20 had a battery draining main screen at the time OLED screens were EXTREMELY expensive a and to dark and hard to make and had low resolution so insted of making an expensive unpractical OLED screen they made a small line for each phone to be used as a notefunction secondary
screen (and LG toke a HUGE step back by making an LCD notch phone ): )

But hey, the sales will saw clearly who sell more if Samsung and the classic models with thin bezels or the iPhone X clones with ugly notches.
AnonD-744321, 13 Mar 2018I don't exactly HATE the notch I just don't like to remove or increase the size of the screen ... moreThe point of the notch is to stash the notifications. So basically iphone x is a fullscreen experience (because notifications are stashed somehwere else). That is what fanboys don't get... it is not supposed to be part of the screen exactly, but rather a secondary screen.
Much better use of a formely bezelled area.

Only fanboys on tech forums do, but IMO their opinion is invalid, they dont see the big picture, they never do. The masses see the big picture, which is why for example absolutely killed s8 (compared to s7) despite being praised on tech forums.
Mix 2s wont sell because it is notchless.
not a fan of the notch, but I love oppo's advertising, always striking. this is especially clever.
I don't exactly HATE the notch I just don't like to remove or increase the size of the screen for a useful bezel for example Apple iPhone X had a 19.5:9 screen WITH the notch but withOUT the notch it well have a regular 16:9 with removing the lower part ( which looks like a circle more then a screen ) in order to open an app even though it can display 18:9 but there isn't much apps that support 18:9 screen size even wen watching a video the bezeless phone appers to have an IPHONE 4 bezels
but it is expectable with an OLED screen sense it doesn't drin that much of battery but what about a cheap LCD screen ?
notch on the iPhone X is like the one on the LG V10/20 only useful for notefucitons

Seems like I will have to buy a new (without notch) phone before all the phones in the world have a notch.
Kudos to Google, Samsung for not copying BLINDLY.
Maybe if they add two notches they'll out the S9 series! Lofty goals? NO! More like exciting possibilities!!! (*_*) .
Stupid companies with all their stupid notches, fruit slaves. There is Apple, all fruit wannabe' s and Samsung, which does their own bids, and please give respect to Samsung for not trying to be fruit.
