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.

Being you’re the thread starter, what specific reasons do you believe that the iPhone X should have two notches? Why would you suggest that it should, being that your thread title suggests it should have two notches.
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 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.

That way the screen would look like an X!
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.
