    That way the screen would look like an X!

    The whole point of the notch is maximising screen space.

    What would you put in the other notch? I think having a notch, just for its own sake, like some of the Android manufacturers have done is pointless.

    Both of them should have front facing speakers.

    Looks more like an H. And in landscape, a capital I.

    Having 2 notches with no real use means wasting screen space.

    Other Than looking like an “X”, what specific reasons do you believe that the iPhone X should have two notches? (More or less, for what other purpose?)

    It's a joke. Although it might have a little merit?
    People might be less upset if the screen shape matched the name.
    Like someone said above, it could house a better speaker.
    Things would be more centered, symmetrical, and closer to a 16:9 aspect ratio.

    I thought to thin out the bezels supported maximizing the screen space?

    I gathered it was a joke. My question was, what other reasoning would you believe that it should have a secondary notch? And you’re saying that people might be _less_ upset if it actually had a second Notch to resemble an X. It seems like That might make even more upset.

    Remember if the screen shape matched the name, it’s actually referred to the As the “iPhone 10”, it’s just a Roman numeral X.

    I share your pain, OP (why do people have to take things so seriously all the time) :D

    Apple's 2018 iPhone (lineup) will have 3 notches.:cool:

    Can’t have too much of a good thing.

    Since the first notch adds more screen then a 2nd notch would add even more!

    BOOM

    This is why you shouldn’t drink while on the forums.

    If this were a serious poll, I'd look for a 3rd option.

    The iPhone X should've had a thin bezel top and bottom.

    Until they can house all of the tech under the screen, they should've extended a bezel the same depth as the notch horizontally across the screen and for symmetry had the same at the bottom.

    If they split the notch so that it was at the two top corners of the screen that would be something, but unnecessarily deleting a section of screen makes no real sense. My only real gripe with the design is how they have grouped the status icons around the notch, looks messy and crowded and now you have to pull down to see battery %age - there must be a better way.

    Battery icon gives a good enough visual of battery level. I don’t need to know the exact percentage.
