so main reason to get an iPhone - is every other company will follow iphone. I am stuck with Note 8 , wish I switched to iPhone X. If android looks like iOS - then its better to get iPhone - apps are still better in iOS.
I did not liked the notch - but looks like there wont be a good option without notch(I am not considering Samsung at all because of their delayed android upgrade, duplicate inferior apps and ugly icons). So its time to go with iOS.

I won't mind that design in pixel 3 if they add headphone jack (in my dreams) and make dual sim variant standard for all units
Pixel < Pixel XL
Pixel 2 ~ Pixel 2XL
Pixel 3 >> Pixel 3XL
Looks like LG is copying the LG G6 design for the smaller unit, whereas HTC is copying the OnePlus 6 and Sony XZ2. You can tell which design is more tasteful. Perhaps HTC should've copied the dual-notch design of the ZTE Iceberg (basically having a proximity sensor, selfie cam, and front speaker, as a notch symmetrical on both sides).
This is not funny anymore.
And for that google will charge you 1K.
That notch and chin also? I understand for stereo speakers but still.

these copycats never learn.. if you want notch fine but then why all of them have these ugly chins. i guess they’re not capable of going no bezel all around like iphone x but they can at least still copy that notch

Why can't company learn from the... moreEssential phone notch is really ugly because under the notch they still put black line what makes all notch useless. And no one cared about essential and didn't try to copy.
It's again Apple after all companies suddenly started to make phones with notch. Good or bad but it's new trend for couple of years!
First, let’s make fun of Apple for removing the headphone jack, then follow suit the next year. Now the notch, and for no good reason (ie. Still having a chin). What’s next, removing navigation buttons for gestures? Oh that too.
Now if Google sell the pixel at a discount ala Nexus, that’s understandable. I mean they didn’t spend resources on design by copying Apple, so at least pass on the savings to customers. But no, Google wants to charge the same price as Apple and Samsung. Seriously? Yet the blind fanboys will continue paying $$$ while bashing Apple for being overpriced. So hilarious.
God! Essential phone is the start of these notch+chin phones! Why can't company learn from their ancestors?
Sharp gave you good example for having only chin
LG G6 gave you good example to have small top+bottom
Apple gave you good example to have ONLY notch.
Notch+chin are fugly!
I'm a loyal Nexus 5 user still using it for past 5 years. Wanted to get the Pixel last year, but the issue around the display and the Pixel using the older format instead of 18:9 stopped from buying it. Hope this time they don't have any issue and price be reasonable around $500+, so I could switch over.
Reason for hating notches:
anti symmetrical..ugly especially combine with a chin. apps bad looking in landscape, the space gain have little use in apps. no great features when gaining the notch..
Reason for loving notches:
look! All OEMs are doing it, why not love it? why all the hate??
For people arguing for loving notches.. the argument is abit weak. if you want people to love notch, come up with convincing arguments please.

I regularly use audioquest dragonfly with my OG pixel XL. Sometimes I use headphone jack for causal listening and long phone calls while charging the phone.
ANOTHER Eye of the Cyclops. If there is one thing I hate more than a rip Off price... It's a rip off design. Sorry Pixel 3 XL.
And look at the size of the bottom bezel to boot. Man that thing's totally unsymmetrical and an eyesore.
Another poor copy and that too by Google. Guys I repeat myself...
