r33fd, 31 Mar 2018Nothing you say makes sense to me.
1) Who said 16/9 was ugly ?
I still hate this 18/9 trend... more1) in today's standards short screens look ugly if you noticed most flagships/midrangers/even some lowend have tall screens
it first started at LG the and All view then when Samsung did it every one started to copy it
the true reason behind it is:-
for LG as a replacement for the notifications bar on the V10/20 since OLED became cheaper
for Samsung just like LG and the benefit of better viewing ingles (since it is impossible to "EDGE" the top and bottom of the phone) and 18.5:9 display help at displaying the UI since most phones support tall screens there is no space for it on 18:9 (they had it coming :P)
for other brands ether like to display notification or as an excuse to call there phones bezeless XP
since the phone screen is bigger it looks bigger on paper but in reality the width of the phone is still the same so you won't feel the size ;)
silly customers "think that bigger is better" (you can't use most of the tall screen since pictures and videos are taking in 16:9 size)
now you know it is marketing BULLSHIT >:(
2) which is more embracing :-
copying you worst enemy? (Which proofs you have no chance against so you move to such cheap and embracing move) (the sdge doesn't count since V30 had it)
or copying a brand EVERYONE have copied in your mean market? (since it is expensive in China no one cares about it being a ripoff)
3) the notch was a good choice since no one care about Apple in there market but now?
any how LG knows there mistake and since they can't redesign it they have given the option to hide the notch
now tell me what would you like :-
8 colors notification LED flash or......
19:9 screen which (will consum MUCH more battery on LCDs and GPU power in general)?
16 MILLION color 140x140 touch sensitive O-LED flashs?
uhhh it is SOOOO hard
if you don't like the notch you can hide it and it won't effect the battery nor the GPU (think to OLED and All way on display capable LCD)
if you don't like the notch because you live Apple or hate copycat then use the corner notch like the X screen and htc U Ultra
simply you don't have a good reason to hate the notch
I don't know why I wasted my time you probably won't read it :'(
no one will XP
Why even bother just take a look at the forums surely that would give your answer to the silly looking Notch.
Woo look apple have done something lets all copy it even tho.. it just looks childish and ununiform :S
Reminds me of the Nissan Juke, which i think should be called the Joke (maybe that was the real name and the joke is on anyone that bought it) lol
AnonD-744321, 31 Mar 2018LG made the tall screen to allow space for notification instead of a notification bar like V10... moreNothing you say makes sense to me.
1) Who said 16/9 was ugly ?
I still hate this 18/9 trend and it doesn't make much sense to me. If you think about it, when do you actually need the entire area of your display ? when watching videos or playing games and those look better in standard aspect.
(I find those "old looking" devices great, because they are easier to grip and hold,which makes for a comfortable media consumption experience.
I would take a nice 5.7-5.9 inch 16/9 over any weird aspect nonsense.)
2) Why copy the edge ? Nobody forces them to copy anything, although edge looks really cool and I don't think people would have hated it much. They could just make regular small edges.
3) People that love Apple just buy Apple and people that don't love Apple don't want Apple's design. Android OEM's were accused countless times of copying Apple in the past and it never worked out great for them.
There is no such thing as a good notch, because it is pointless !
If they want to make the screen bigger, just make the screen bigger. If I am really that desperate to get 6.2 19/9 vs a 6.0 18/9 I won't mind a few extra mm on top, but at least I get to use the full 6.2 19/9 without having the notch disrupt my full screen apps.
If you think about it, the way Samsung does it it's best:
- a smaller phone for people who want compact experience.
- a larger phone for power users.
Everybody wins, no need for notch.
Having the notch is like trying to make a perfect size for both people that want small and people that want large at the same time and it doesn't work like that.
And most important of all:
What's the point of asking for people's opinion after you are ALREADY DECIDED what you are going to do and then DELETE the question when you don't like the result ?
That's outright insulting to the people who expressed polite concern about a design aspect they never liked, wanted or even asked for.
as you can see in reddit source, that thread is locked, so we ar unable to post my comment.
anyway i think that the notch is just something more 'handsome' appearance in regard of screen layout, the biggest problem is how the notch will maximise usefulness of the phone
I said it before, ill say it again. I Will Never buy any phone that has an annoying notch.
atumiwa, 31 Mar 2018its good for LG to ask for feedback, we already know the answer , more people dislike top not... moreWell actually LG phones really suck, it's not just people beeing sheep. They always have crappy batteries, crappy speakers, software problems, usually weak GPS and GSM receivers...they just lack attention to the details. All companies do, but LG even more.
its good for LG to ask for feedback,
we already know the answer , more people dislike top notch than the one who likes it, but the problem is not lie in it, LG would still hardly sell their product , because people tend to buy "brand" ,its all about brand image , for example people dont care the negative if it is apple
r33fd, 30 Mar 2018There is no point to the notch, 0.
The advantage it provides could extremely easily be replic... moreLG made the tall screen to allow space for notification instead of a notification bar like V10/20
now with other brands "brainleslly" copying it so they can have an excuse to call "bezeless" most apps support tall screen they now have three options :-
1) stick to the old design with 16:9 screen in middle and UI bars on the top and bottom (which currently looks ugly)
2) make the screen much taller like Samsung (which will make it look like a Samsung copycat specialy with the edge screen and they can't stand being called a Samsung ripoff)
3) go with the notch since it is tranding in China (and because everyone copies) Apple they thought it was allowed
know with them knowing how much people HATE the notch they are DISPRETLY trying to proof that they can make a good notch (they even added an option to disable the notch) for character less brand how are looking for an excuse to call there phones "bezeless" the
tallscreen wasn't a good one but notches were perfect
we stopped tranding in Europe by (brain washing users with random "I HATE NOTCH" comments) but we forgot why we hate it
LGs notch notch is good since it don't use it as an excuse to call there phones "FULL VIEW" or "BEZELESS" they are actually trying to hide it (with allows on display you won't see or feel the notch and it won't effect the battery nor the GPU) LGs notch is the best notch available even better then IPHONE X (read my past comments to understand more)
here is some examples of a TERRIBLE notch:-
wiko full view 2/2 pro
hauwei P20 lit
VIVO V9 (they used it to as an excuse for the $HITY price and TOTALLY copied Apple)
here are some examples of a good notch:-
IPHONE X ( obviously )
LG X screen (corner notch count)
hauwei P20 PRO (except there attempt to make fun of the brands they have copied)
OPPO/VIVO/ONEPLUS (OPPO changed the name of the R15 from "DREAM MIRROR" to PRO when they realized that we knew it is BULL$HIT)
essential PH-1 (design only and because they invented it)
if you only hate the notch because you didn't want them to copy Apple the tell them to go back to Xscreen corner notch simple right?
LG is the second (after ONEPLUS) to realize how many people hate the notch and the first one to ask for user opinions you should respect there attempt to make the notch better
honorless brainwashed haters XP
think before you commit >:(
reply me PLEASE ;)
No, LG, don't be another iphone wannabe, your smartphones are great without this notch.
Anonymous, 30 Mar 2018Not one of them is ture if you turn it into a "smart bezel" (as most companies increasingly do... moreThere is no point to the notch, 0.
The advantage it provides could extremely easily be replicated by simply making the phone a few mm larger. Oh but then, you'll also have the screen real estate in games and full screen apps and it won't look bad at all !
There simply is no point to the notch.
Want to make a larger screen, make it, want to leave it smaller, leave it, just no to the notch.
The notch makes the phone uglier, less rezistent and is hated by the majority of people so just leave it die.
DrCyberman, 30 Mar 20185 Disadvantages having 'The Notch' :
1. 'The Notch' looks ugly
2. It may/might cut-out (impo... moredon't be shallow your "disadvantages" doesn't make any sense
1) the look is about peoples taste for example:-
"I love sharp corner I don't understand why you love soft edges?"
same goes on the notch I personally like it.you probably hate it because EVERYONE does :)
2) it NEVER does.the notch canNT effects any non_notch supporting app you can't actually use it t display pictures/video/games etc..
BUT it is used to display notification withOUT lose a part off the screen (that is why "FULL VIEW" is BULL$HIT)
3) WHAT?!?!?!?? do you know how STUPID you sound? you just made that up! :P
when you don't use the notch it turns into a bezel so if you don't want the notch you can still have a normal phone ;) (specially on OLED)
4) what? as I said you can still have a normal phone
5) yes you are right
BUT on OLED and LGs confirmed disabling option you can "hide" the notch
6) did you know that LG invented the tall screen as a solution for V10/20 notification bar?
and other brands are copying it because it improves the gaming experience (and because they like to make copycats ;) )
know with most apps supporting tall screen you no longer see the notifications
and the notch tranding it sounds like a good option (they didn't know about notch HATERS)
sorry to break it down for you this way but....
YOU HAVE BEEN BRIAN WASHED /*O*\
you only hate the notch because you think EVERYONE hates it
you been FORCED to hate it
just like you were forced to hate Arabia after 9/11 :P
next time before you hate some thing make a list about the reasons why you hate it ;)

Stay with you dumb bezel... this one is for people that get it...
Well we should appreciate that
LG is asking feed back
From my point the notch is waste
May be the notch is good for some people
But for majority people its waste
So LG DONT PUT THAT NOTCH
the notch never made sense, it just shows how the rest of the companies are just mindless apple followers.. it always was about making the screen feel more like a portal than a display and iOS is the only one that succeeds at that.
