I should think that it would be bad? Why?

I don't like hole in the screen, I find it more obtrusive than any notch. But flat screens are better than curved: no mistouches, no weird reflections no dstortion of content.
Anonymous, 14 Mar 2019X1 does not have 806ppi like other Premium. It is less than 660. Smartphone doesn't need more than 400 ppi (460 if OLED).
love sony design still (not the xz3 attempt) but they are just 100-200€ too expensive for offering nothing more than any other phone.

Notch is not good, but fairly bearable)Few years ago companies have identity.
Now almost the phones look exactly the same. Same stupid move was done by car makers.
One brand has same design being used for the front of many cars.
Now imagine if 99% of the cars were same , just different on the inside.
Nova 4, Galaxy S10e, upcoming Motorola P30, maybe zenfone 6 and very small chinese brands. All flat screen with one hole.
At least Sony and HTC stay away from this. There is no point of an "innovation" that has no benefits for user. Front cam of S10+ takes at least 5% of the screen. It is ridiculous to watch a video and a huge black spot there, like bunch of dead pixels.
Hater want Sony to use design of Find X ( no matter getting rid of front speaker and IP rating). Even an editor of Gsma has changed his mind about this kind of design and now he thinks it is very annoying. His article also mentions other phones he has issues with like OnePlus 6T.
Notch is popular not because companies thought it was useful, just because Apple decided to use. No one cared about it when only Sharp and Essential were using. Stupid move to keep selling iphone clones.
Marvin Hagler, 14 Mar 2019Shanti what great things are you doing to make such bold comments ?That ain't bold, that's a s2pid comment. Which brand does not care about success? Doesn't make any sense to me

There are two options. You keep scr... moremany phones have the screen connector at middle of the screen or at side, if you see teardown's/dissasembly videos you see many of them having that kind of connector placed.
There's no reason to Sony keep big bezel when this already exist.
So, Sony is trying to be Sony: awful front with uncetered screen, not only from today ut in the past they already have this kind of design!
Bad choise, i think their 200 years old CEO is stuck in the past.
Dude, 14 Mar 2019Sony needs a new CEO and a new design team. They're stuck in the past. Also, plastic is NO NO,... moreThere is nothing better than proper plastic composite for a phone. There is no compromise when it comes to plastic and proper plastic can be made to feel like rubber, metal, glass and so on. Metal frames and glass plates have zero benefits over plastic other than the perception that you have something in your hand that you perceive is of high quality, which is not.
Metal frames on 99% of the phones is absolute cheap kind of aluminum that scuffs and chips and has no rigidity. Even expensive 7000 grade chips as easy. Metal frame also interferes with wireless so it requires plastic interuptions which kills yhe whole purpose of a frame anyway in both structural and esthetic points.
Glass or kind of super shiney corning glass is uktra slippery and impossible to hold especially with thin devices. So you need a clear bra which again kills the whole purpose of touching the glass. It doesn't scratch as easy but it shatters unless your phone has beveled edges on glass plates which most phones don't have cause they want flush screen. Sony is in minority that makes their glass surfaces beveled.
Xperia 10 structure is plastic composite unibody with curvature. Its a proper build for a phone. No compromises.
But you don't have to take my word for it. Everyone is free to believe that metal frames on chinese cheap phones are as equal as flagships of Apple Samsung or Sony or that implementation of Gorilla glass is always the same no matter what. Thats according to life by the specs but actual life has so many variables unseen by spec sheet.

There are two options. You keep screen connetors at bottom and use same design of Xperia 1 or turn the screen upside down to keep connectors at top. This increses bezel size a bit.
Screen connectors are reason no phone will ever been 100%. Reason so,e phones remove top bezel but still have 2 or 3 mm at bottom side.
