I've been on the youtube a lot and there are sooooo many smart phone with either no notch or a very small notch.

At first I was like "whatever" but these phones just are getting really asthetically pleasing.

They look fantastic and, well, I'm jelly lol

While I see many people say the notch doesn't bother them, I think someone being envious of the notch is a first.

I am completely satisfied with my X and if I wasn't, I'd sell it and purchase something different. If your not happy or you're getting jealous, purchase something else. Easy fix...

No way! I’m keeping my iPhone X. These cheap knock offs are not my interest I just like the design of many now

This is how we walk away from the problem. And “something else “ for Apple user may mean much more than just using another phone. Just FYI.

The notch is and never will be a concern for those outside a tech site. I can understand it’s ‘different’ in terms of protruding into the display, but I can honestly say it’s never been a hindrance to me in anyway with the iPhone X/XS.

Notchless phones with no chin are great innovations. But no IOS means they can't match the current generation of iPhones.

Apple could make an option in iOS to eliminate the notch by simply not using that sliver of the screen, essentially creating a bezel on the top. Make it user selectable in settings.
Like the Pixel 3 XL? That's a dumb move - pushing everything down, & taking away the extra screen the notch gave you in the first place..o_O

I would never ever pay over $1000 for a notch. Waiting patiently for the no notch model.
You're paying for extra screen in a smaller device. :confused:

I wouldn't even buy one for $500. I have bought every iPhone since the first (minus 4s) and I still have the iPhone 7. I will never buy a phone with a notch. Maybe 3rd time lucky in September 2019, if not I will look at android phones.

My nephew went with android this time and I can't believe they offer a software option to get rid of the notch, well to actually mask it by making the stupid wings of the screen black, wish apple offered a software option

Little v-neck notch is better than wide neck but no notch is even better.

Another Chinese market phone that will _never_ make its way to North America or even remotely compete against Samsung, let alone the iPhone. Essentially, it’s vapor.

As has usually been the case, the extreme anti-notchers are the ones who have never used a phone with a notch.

Can't believe this is still a thing a year plus on.
