Imagine if they have 99.9% of the things identical to the iPHONE X, but with the exception of the new aspect ratio currently found on smartphones and use the 16:9 aspect ratio, how many people will complain about Apple? A LOT, yes I mean a lot, no bullshit present. When playing games the notch is already kind of a nuisance, what happens when this applies to watching videos on entertainment apps? HO HO HO, HA LE LU YA, no more option of choosing whether u should crop the video if u are willing to bare with the notch blocking OR not cropping and willing to bare with the black bars and not making full use of the 18:9 display, it will be just FULL SCREEN now, because most videos in entertainment apps like YouTube support that 16:9 aspect ratio and if Apple were to release their iPHONE X with that aspect ratio. If they did that, they probably wasted their inventory making the iPHONE X and not getting profits back
What's the purpose of notch on top, if phone still have bezel on bottom?
Epic copy cat.

When Apple started dual cameras and put them horizontal, everyone followed. When Apple started to put it vertically, everyone followed.
The notch is a perfect example of
1) Apple putting function over form, which is what many people wanted again in Apple products
2) Companies copying EVERYTHING apple does just to be with the trend. A notch makes absolutely no sense if you have a big fat bottom bezel because you could have just put that bottom bezel on the top to not have a notch. Apple did it because they wanted to make everything possible on the front a screen, and they gone beyond what we're used to with the notch, which is probably the reason why many think the design is failed. I don't think it looks good either and will be happy when the notch is covered with screen, but that's what we have to live with for now. And I think that for many companies, the Samsung approach is better right now. The iPhone X is just a phone where Apple went all-in to show what's possible and to show that they can still "innovate" (also something many people cried for), it's like a concept gone mass-market. But those debates won't matter in 3 years when the notch and bezel in general is just gone and nobody cares anymore.
Notches looks like something on back camels
Smaller bezels & yes full bezels is better I think so
I vote the notch, but me too dont really mind of it. There is no option for this?

i am for the notch, but it should be just for the status bar, like lg v20, so it will not affect videos, photos, games at all
Maybe I'm old-fashioned, but I still don't like on-screen buttons on Android, so I'd rather have top and bottom bezels with physical keys and front-facing speakers.
I'd rather have some top/bottom bezels instead of that HIDEOUS NOTCH!
Not to mention a little bit of bezels will save your very expensive phone in case you drop it. I hate using covers and bumpers..
Except for Sony and Samsung, all the other brands are just cheap and lame wannabes. ALL they know is copy/paste like a retard robot : huawei, xiaomi and all the other china replika brands.
I wouldn't use a china phone even if they offered me a Mercedes!
I simply cannot understand why someone would wish for a replika huawei .. Vomit!
Duel, 18 Mar 2018"You do realize notch doesn't really have a purpose, right ?"
Of course it has, you can't r... moreAlso, consider this.
S9 - 5.8" screen, 18.5:9 aspect ratio.
X - 5.8" screen, 19.5:9 aspect ratio.
S9 screen width - 2.54"
X screen width - 2.43"
So, you actually get more screen real estate in 1) playing videos in landscape, 2) browsing in both landscape and portrait... without the notch. So, if Apple set out to make a bigger screen in a smaller body, they actually failed with the notch.

Take your devil horns back where they came from
Make a camera/speaker that pops out of the frame.

1) No bottom bezel + notch,
2) Two small bezels.
I think I would take option #2. The screen to display ratio is still the same.

Realy ,why nobody tried to copy lg G2 in 2017/2018.
Maybe its too normal....

Of course it has, you can't remove bottom bezel If you don't have notch. It would make very bad design and weird when you don't have centered screen. And one side can't be longer. That's why for example S9 have those big bezels down and top, even If they could have make one smaller they had to keep the same size so the screen is centered.
People want more screen in smaller phone and that's what notch can give you, if it's made right way like Apple did. It's stunning to see that X screen when it goes almost all the way up and down.
Duel, 18 Mar 2018When you have certain size screen, you will always have some problems with black bars, because... moreI agree with your general sentiment, but you see there's a big difference between, say, Galaxy S9 and iPhone X. Galaxy has a res of 2960x1440, so a 16:9 video would be displayed on a portion of a screen of size 2560x1440, which is normal type of scaling for 16:9 videos. You lose 400 pixels horizontally as vertical black bars, which is the reduction of horizontal screen width of 87%. But iPhone has a weird resolution of 2436x1125. Apparently 1125 doesn't scale properly with 16:9 videos, so such a video would play in 1920x1080 screen size. Iphone ends up losing 516 pixels horizontally (and 45 pixels vertically), which is the reduction of horizontal screen width of 79%. And it adds two small horizontal bars at the top and bottom of the screen. I think there are some workarounds to play 16:9 videos in 2000:1125 screen size, so the video scales in the y-axis from the very top to bottom without black bars, but like I said, the scaling itself is unnatural. I think the video quality is much worse in that case because of the scaling. Plus, you still lose horizontal screen width on the order of 82%.

Even Galaxy S8 has a better screen to body ratio. Apple introduced it just because they wanted make something different and did not think about usability. They probably just thought " No matter what we do people will just buy iPhones because it has an Apple logo on it." So it doesn't really matter to them if they screw up the design or not.
