Anonymous, 08 Nov 2018Close enough: it was sharp aquos s2. But you cannot deny that apple popularized it. But Essential was announced with that sepcific specification a lot earlier. Still, I indeed cannot deny that Apple popularized it.

Because in fact our eyes are mostly focused to the middle and bottom of the screen. Its just annoying when you play games in full screen because sometimes it hinder a button.
The future of phones is NO notch at all. All phones will be full display with camera and all of sensors under the display.More rear camera is OK, mechanical slider is also understandable, but please, don't be notched it. I am sure there will be no notch in the future. The notch should perished and extinct in the smartphone world.

The V and O are bullshit.
The real ones are U and none. They are teasing many shapes and after that the real winner will be no notch. This will please the crowd and kick in the balls the competition.

Because all those things you listed don't actually matter once you use the phone. I just got my Mate 20 Pro and I don't even think about it, not once. It doesn't impact my usage, the notification icons aren't a big deal because you get pop up notifications anyway and Huawei keep the clock on the right, not the left. Also videos only cut into the notch if you maximize them, which also cuts off the top and bottom, so why would you do that.

What is inside it cant fit in water drop notch or other android phones with notches. that is the thing you should understand. open your mind!
So... is the Huawei Mate 10 the last phone for me? Because even they moved to >16:9 displays. Are we going towards a strip of a screen? I wish someone would make a 6" 3:2 display with the smallest bezels possible, no rounded sides or corners and a bit thicker, for better grip and bigger battery.

As long as notches aren't standardized apps won't be adapted to them and therefore they are bad design.
