Regular shaped screen is more convenient than iPhone X style notch, because the whites overlapping on notch cutout when playing video or games is an eyesore all because of Android P white themed and won't suit on notch. What consumers want is Super AMOLED displays like Samsung galaxy S9 but affordable mid range tier including dark theme system wide support to help AMOLED conserve battery consumption. However Google is ignoring this by trying to become Apple, copying their UI and also mobile industry is copying iPhone design and focusing on future for consumers which is really pathetic lame excuse.

NO Notch Please......
Instead of Notch the companies must focus on other features such as Thunderbolt 3.
The many people complaining about a functional notch make not a peep about rounded off corners that dispense with screen for purely aesthetic reasons. Notch gives you more screen, corners gives you less; where are [i]those[/i] pitchforks?
How is the x shipment till now? Is it good? People will buy it i know. Wonder what will apple or fanboy will say if samsung take that notch on galaxy s.

Not a big seller? Get your fact straight, it sold better than any other smartphone model during its time on the market last quarter. Of course its a big seller. Obviously the notch is not a big thing for alot of people.
it give a bad effect imo. it looks like the screen has been cut to fit the phone instead of the screen been the main feature and the phone has been made to fit around the screen if you see what i mean. Dont see why anyone should be copying it. Lets have a notch at the bottom too. Can you imgine how bad this would look on a tv? well it looks just as ugly on a phone. After saying that its no worse than the gimmick of a curved screen on a samsung.
No notch, look to Mi Mix.... A little off topic, but flagships should come out every 2 years. Manufacturers cant come up with something new every 12 months and consumers are sick of paying obscene amounts of money for incremental updates.. Plus they would sell more phones because people wouldnt be holding out for the next ome 6 months after release... See these people are not so bright

I personally like the X's notch.
S8 and S9 are not bezeless with those hideous forehead and chin bezel.

I'm not an apple fan. I am not using iPhone myself.
I called the "notch" is a big failure for iPhone X but it turns out that many Android OEMs are helping Apple to make it popular and attractive by following the design. To me, I prefer the 18:9 to the "notch". Oh and, the Vivo Apex concept is a perfect design, at least to me.

Perhaps other copy cat OEMs should've waited for these (predictable) poll results before releasing their new phones.
Sheep will be sheep
Moral of this lesson? Take the chance of thinking for yourself.
Kudos to OEMs who don't pander to anything the fruit does.

There seems to be so much confusion around notch-on-android - and that all content will stretch out and get "lost behind the notch". It's simply not happening right now.
The benefit of a notch, means notification bar can be relegated to the ears.
Meaning this bar , on android, does not occupy "regular" app screen real-estate.
And that's a damn good thing.
The bad thing - is that it makes the notification bar smaller, in terms of what information it can hold.
But come-on - who really "reads" notifications. The main content is key. Maximize screen space for that..
Which is also why I wish more would keep the capacitive buttons..
Of course the first guy in this article ,the guy who just paid 1000.00 for the Iphone X is going to say the notch doesn't bother him.There is no reason whatsoever to have an ugly notch messing up your status bar.Just because there are people who are so self absorbed that they HAVE TO HAVE a selfie camera is why the notch exists,plain and simple.Heck,Samsung could reduce the top bezel on the S9 and still keep lens,sensors,led notification....I like the X but I will NEVER EVER get a phone with a notch in it.For me,it is unsightly and obtrusive.iPhone X isn't a big seller anyway. I like what Vivo is doing with the pop up selfie cam,it's there for an as needed essential.
