    Currently on iPhome 7plus and I really wanted the new iPhone with OLED display. But I am really bothered by the notch. I feel like I would regret spending $1000 for a phone that has something that bothers me.

    There are plenty of ongoing threads about the notch itself, not to mention threads about people not getting the iPhone X for any number of reasons. And these threads are all on the first page of the forum. Why not post in one of the ongoing threads, instead of creating your own?

    The mods need to create a notch sticky so all of the complainers can meet in one big thread.

    Nobody forced you to click on a thread that clearly has negative feedback, based simply on the title.

    The notch is an eyesore, how did the design team allow it to be included? It's a mystery to me

    The notch is designed to tell you on which side the camera bump is. Feature :p

    Great idea! It'd be like a support group for those whose lives are so empty that this is what they choose to complain about.

    Still don’t need to clutter up the forum. Have one sticky where everyone can discuss the notch. Or one where people can throw their 2¢ in why they are/aren’t getting one of the new phones.

    Really?

    So your standards and priorities are what everyone should be judging what matters in life by?

    Though I'm not getting a new phone anytime soon anyway, the notch always annoys me when I look at pictures of the X.  really should perfect this; The X does not quite hold up to their outstanding design standards because of this.

    The notch in the X reminds me of this time I wanted to date this girl. She was nice but had a jacked up face. I decided to pass...

    I can't believe the notch bothers people that much. I'm not thrilled about how they've chosen to shape the software around it but just looking at the home screen with the notch, it doesn't bother me a bit.

    I don't really see why anyone with a 7 Plus needs to upgrade this year. Notch or not, is your phone lacking to the point when you need to spend $1000 on a replacement?

    If I had iPhone X, I would use that pure black wallpaper that is in iOS 11. That would at least hide notch in homescreen and bring up great contrast OLED's have.

    I agree. I have had every iPhone. I get the new one every year. This will be the first time I haven't bought the flagship. I went with the 8+ 256gb. Why? Two reasons: I don't like how the form factor of the X is smaller...I like the Plus size, and I absolutely can't stand the notch. Hugh mistake on Apple's part.

    My hope is that next year, they will introduce a version that is the size of the plus, all OLED screen, with no notch. The notch can be there, but the screen needs to end and be straight underneath it. If not, I will continue with the Plus size phones.

    But do we really need a new thread about the notch every single day?

    Boy, sorry to hear that you feel that way, but on the other hand, that will just be one less order in my way when I order my lovely iPhone X 256GB........I love the notch, might even purchase a bag of natches on delivery day.....lol

    They do not know it but the 8+ is the real flagship. Largest screen of all of them.

    Every time I see the word notch I think of the song "Swimming Pools" by Kendrick Lamar

    I’d have have stickies: one for Face ID, one for the notch and one for all those who aren’t upgrading, going android or whatever.

    Since when does screen size define flagship?
