Notsure, 02 Dec 2018People fool themselves. If you want to view something and use black stripes, the hole version ... moreYour photos are 4:3 and videos are mostly 16:9. What use do you have for the screen on top, may I ask?
A smart Shooter, 02 Dec 2018dead pixel is all the way lolBetter than a dead band on top and a dead band on bottom.
Just put a smaller and simpler low res screen on the back, for clock and notifications and selfies. Super low power, bla bla.
Then no bezels. Thats the winning option that was left out of the poll, I think.
People fool themselves. If you want to view something and use black stripes, the hole version results into a wider black strip and smaller image, since the hole is more to the interior than the teardrop notch. The hole becomes better only if you want to include the notch into your image, something that I'll never do.

why cant they make a phone without selfie camera? No educated people takes selfies..
How about this:
The front camera is placed inside to the phone in the same way as the S-Pen of the Galaxy Note devices are, while still retaining the water resistance capability of the sensor, and instead of being detachable, it won't be removable from the phone.
I don't even know how manufacturers couldn't figure out how to add water resistance to these movable parts, when a camera sensor takes less space inside the phone than a pen would.
These holes are just making things more complicated when they could've been done in a cheaper yet more practical and just as good way. And I'm not saying that we shouldn't do these things, only they don't make any sense to me, like why would they ruin the full-screen experience just for the sake of having that little thing on, knowing it's not always going to be used by many people (except most teenagers who are selfie addicts and love posting their average to good-looking faces on IG, SnapChat, FaceTime, FB, etc.)
Samsung and many others who implement such ideas need to know that the need to "Rethink what a phone can do."
Anonymous, 02 Dec 2018Hole is the new notch, even worse. Most don't accept it cause only android fanbois had issues ... moreOkay what is the notch good for? It compromises the status bar space, it ruins the symmetry, it cuts the video like a part dead screen (inb4 play in 16:9 and lose the point of all screen phone), cuts text while browsing, gaming controls are compromised. So yeah, no point in your stupid notch
P, 02 Dec 2018The problem is that you people on this website hate Apple because they popularized the notch, ... moreAll hate apple way before the notch. People hate apple more for there too high price for there devices and there closed ecosystem. And how apple have always said for there problems that "your holding your phone wrong way" and so on.
Additional option: it shouldn't go anywhere, just be removed altogether. Consider the concept of Meizu Pro 7 (Plus) or Nubia X with an additional screen on the back. This is the option that would help make 99.9% screen-to-body phones.
As for the bottom chin - if you remove the jackie, why not remove speaker and USB holes and locate the speaker(s) at the front or back and add a modular terminal at the back (like Moto Mods) with USB-C, full USB, 3.5mm and other hot-swappable little plugs?
-DLS-, 02 Dec 2018I'd prefer no selfie camera at all. I'm so over the selfie and video calls phase. Great, next iPhone is coming without one and will revolutionize the smartphone again :)))
I would consider hole for selfie cam, hole ambient sensor and hole for earpiece. That is wow.. and hole for home button. Woooow
Does anyone seriously like these design trends (notch, little hole, etc)? They are horrible to say the least.
I really think the mini bezels that Samsung used until now are the best approach. Notches or holes are all annoying and ruin the multimedia experience of these phones.
I have used multiple notched phones by now, but i always "disabled" the notch by putting on fake bezels (most phones have this option except iPhones). I'm not sure if they'll give that option for camera holes though, and if they don't, then I would be disappointed...
Anonymous, 02 Dec 2018then what will happen of the speakers R.I.P stereo audio and good speakers Speakers will be in the frame, like Samsung Tab s3, s4.
I'd prefer no selfie camera at all. I'm so over the selfie and video calls phase.
