Anonymous, 03 Dec 2018There are so many mentally disorder people out there who want hole in display lolBetter a small hole than a large bite.
A smart Shooter, 04 Dec 2018Notch like a peninsular of the bezel, it still can be treat as a bezel.
A hole is an island, ... moreit depends on the brand.
i would go to service center to repair it, if it is samsung/apple/reputable chinese brands.
But if it is sony.. i will keep it. because i know its service centers cannot repair it.
Anonymous, 03 Dec 2018Know that a peninsula is bigger than an islandNotch like a peninsular of the bezel, it still can be treat as a bezel.
A hole is an island, it is isolated from the bezel and more like a dead pixel on the screen. You still don't understand, okay let's say your purchase a new phone has a dead pixel on screen will you change a new one to replace the faulty one?
Anonymous, 03 Dec 2018It's your opinion. Many people here think the notch is more annoying than a hole.Because those people love a holes in the screen more than a dead pixel on screen. Notch is a peninsular dead pixel which still consider a part of the frame, BUT a holes in the screen is an island and it isn't the frame of the phone and it is obviously a dead pixel in the screen from the first of purchase until it become a rubbish.
Fintoyu, 03 Dec 2018Look where are located the speakers at Samsung Tab S4 before talkingImprove your comprehension before commenting, you misunderstood the comment you replied to and then you misunderstood my reply to you.
We were talking about the earpiece as a speaker. If you cut a hole for the camera (basically still a notch), then you get closer to having a screen-only front. But then you have to deal with the earpiece location. And this results in you losing stereospeaker functionality.
Sure you can put a loudspeaker on the bottom of the phone, and on the top, and call it a stereospeaker. But you lose the front-firing nature (eg ASUS RoG Phone), and the side mounting means you lose volume and sound quality, not to mention getting blocked/muffled by your palm. And even if we accepted these shortcomings, it doesn't answer the question of the earpiece.
Because if you don't have one, well, you can't have private phone calls and everything will be like a conference call. And its ergonomically unacceptable to hold the 7mm thin-side pushed at your ear. So do you have the earpiece become retractable in a sliding portion? Or do you go for a piezoelectric (vibrating screen) type? Or do you introduce a notch for it? None of these solutions is ideal.
See where I'm getting at?
Anonymous, 03 Dec 2018I would watch movies on my TV, not on that tiny-weeny phone screen.Well, viewed from 1/10th of the distance, the tiny screen becomes as big as the huge screen. Also, I'm away very often and I take my phone with me.
SKR..., 02 Dec 2018A tiny hole like what's shown in the image is okay, but if it gets larger like about 7-8mm dia... moreLol. Note 9 was a hole cm higher due to the "small" bezels.
They are unneeded and ugly. The hole too. I.e. having dead pixels in the middle of useful screen.
A tiny hole on top was always the best design. It is literally the least used place of the screen. Yet fanboys were hating and we are now getting far worse options.
Until we get under screen camera a tiny hole on top remains the best. A holeat the middle of the screen is literally the worst. Goddamn fanboys. Wrong 100% in 100% of the things that they do.
It seems the new improved 18:9 Aspect Ratio was in line with the Notch/Drop Revolution. Regardless of poll results, ...tell me big shot OEM's .... how's your mobile earnings result since the introduction of 18:9+ Notched Ratio Screen joke ? Did consumer's get it ? (The joke, I mean)
Hole is better than any types notch but still it distrupts the screen. Camera in thin top bezel is still my fav
A tiny hole at the extreme top corner would look neat if they use it as a circular battery/network status.
There are so many mentally disorder people out there who want hole in display lol
Nro, 02 Dec 2018So what you want then ? 60%Screen to body ratio ? I guess you are using old iPhones...What? You can get slim bezel non-notch phone with 75%+ body ratios. The only point of the "bezel-less phone" is aesthetics but all notch phones are ugly to look at
Having tried both op6 and op6t, the teardrop notch doesn't help at all. If you are irritated looking at a regular notch, teardrop notch doesn't help much. It's still a black obstruction at the top.
These phones look symmetrically good when notch is hidden with black status bar.
Holes look good in renders but we all know renders are so misleading
