Kangal, 18 Mar 2018I vote for: - No notch - No weird aspect ratio (stick with 16:9) - No rounded corners If... moreI agree! The first Xiaomi Mi Mix is so ideal for me when it comes to physical dimensions. I just did not get one due to no storage expansion and its LCD display.
Not voting as you are forgetting that Sharp/Xiaomi pioneered this trend with little top bezel at all.
The notch is just a desperate attempt but retain decent phone call audio and front camera.
I have no use for a front camera and there was a time that selfies were taken with rear cameras. I don't recall the last the time I had a phone call so I'd like to see Essential's speaker or Xiaomi's piezoelectric speaker implementations.
opt, 18 Mar 2018am I weird if I say notch is attractive?Nope, Just because you're slightly different don't mean you're weird. Just like some people into same gender or apache helicopter or trap or flat chested or overweight or dandy grandpa or ped- *cough* doesn't mean they're weird
notch triggered my OCD, ugly and has no real pros other than cheap way to increase body to screen ratio.
only mimix 2 is acceptable because they put it on corner, and vivo apex is best for non selfie addict because it doesn't have notch but retain very high body to screen ratio.
the notch is not a design, implementation or any other kind of solution by any means.
it's just a temporary compromise for the manufacturer, until they find a real solution for the selfy camera and sensor problem. ;)
no, I don't like it and I'll skip all the phones using it.
Ivan, notch doesn't give character. Many chinese phones will have notch from now on.
Notch in Iphone X is reasonable because it holds so many sensors inside it; and to fill the empty upper bezel, because there's no notification bar logo like Android does. But how about android? I couldn't figure it out why there are more notches in android phones recently. From my opinion, there's no reason for android to use notch for their phone unless they add more sensors than just proximity and front camera. If they want to make android more famous, they need to learn more about originality. Look at LG V20. It's really an innovation thanks to the second screen. So Originality is better than just copycat.
dxyuyu, 18 Mar 2018I'd accept if there's different types of designs not only a middle notch For example like the... moreAh yes~ I nearly bought the V10, it's a beautiful device but imo a bit too large. Back then I've opted for the G Flex 2. It was beasty and great preformer. And just the size for me. Am I weird for liking the fact that 810 powered phone kept my thighs warm in the winter...?
Anonymous, 18 Mar 2018Yep Mate 10 is the perfect example. 16:9, fingerprint sensor under the screen, no notch, 3.5mm... moreAnd ironically this is the phone they didn't want to sell and instead pushed the disgusting mate 10 pro instead. Very telling about their mindset and insanity.

I vote for:
- No notch
- No weird aspect ratio (stick with 16:9)
- No rounded corners
If you want to make the bezels shorter, then go ahead, and shave the bezels.
But do not think me a fool, and attempt to HIDE the bezel behind an elongated screen and notch. And even worse, you're making the bezels LARGER when you compare the "new design" to the traditional design. I don't take any sides in terms of "looks" as that's Subjective... but speaking Objectively the traditional design was much better from a Practicality viewpoint, you know using a portable computer as a tool.
And honestly, I think you can take the traditional design, and make it look beautiful without rounded-corners, or a notch, or curved sides, or weird aspect ratios. I'd like to prove it by making my own phone, if only I won the lottery : \
opt, 18 Mar 2018am I weird if I say notch is attractive?Yes. Atleast imo.
I do not have anything Against you. But kindly explain WHY do you think it's attractive?
Those manufacturers will regret their copying of fruit phone Notch X
mohsin.mahesar, 18 Mar 2018Well s9 and iphone x both are good. But the point is why some some companies are copying notch... moreEasy, because most companies will check what sells best, and just copy it.
"Fapple has a notch? Sweet! Let's copy it for no good reason and advertise it as out phone has notch too? It has lost it's 3.5mm jack? Marvelous! Let's copy that too etc etc...!"
Tch, I wanna puke on such companies due to their laziness. I understand the "everyone copy everyone" shit. I really am, but ffs... don't be that idiot and copy the worst design.
Sounds like someone created 280 accounts and voted for notch for each accounts.
Would prefer symmetry with small bezels. Notch begone. Or if it's with a notch, better make em status screen black/make a second display.
Fruity X notch, horrible, but, at least works in iOS, in android it is an absolutely aberration! All those android device makers are a total disgrace by just copying fruity to try to sell phones to all those wannabes that can not afford the fruity gadget, they try to say "hey, buy my cheap low device, now it looks like a fruity X, but for 700 dollars less!!, do not let all fruity users impress you, with our low, low cost cheap fruity looking device, you can now be part of that once, unreachable niche" lol
