    Aren't "gates" reserved for things that are unwelcome surprises (i.e. Antenna gate)? Pretty sure everyone already knows there's a notch.

    Well i define it as an unwelcome surprise. I never dreamt Apple would implement something so horrible into one of their phones

    No, ones a phone and one is an egress

    The notch on the top is something that took no one by surprise because of the leaks. Love it or hate it, its a design decision.

    Can we add this to the other notch related threads or just close it?

    "gates" are defects that people don't discover until after using the phone. Like it or not, the notch is intentional and prominently featured. The whole "gate" thing is already stupid and overused enough. Let's not add any feature that people don't like to the "gate" list.

    Yea there were the leaks, but the way the notch has been incorporated into the software has surprised a lot of people.

    Videos and games look odd. Only way to "remove" the notch , is to reduce the size of the video. Kind of defeating the point of having a nice big oled panel

    It would be naive to think that one of the hardware or software prototypes didn't include the bezel-imitator so many people here are lusting after. They will have tried it and discarded it. There will have been reasons. I'm happy to trust them based on their track record.

    So many armchair Jony Ives here.

    The notch is nothing. We're obsessing over it because we've got nothing new after all the leaks. I'm sure the reality will be that we'll forget about it after ten minutes and love the screen, camera, form factor etc.

    These thread are idiotic.

    Previously, they were just really stupid. Soon they will become 'idiotic+' (or is that idoitic- ? :( )

    What next year my guess they will remove the charging port and force everyone to use wireless pads.
    We will call that chargeGate.

    I think you'll need to put notch to a TV and then you'll see how stupid it looks watching video. Problem is real.

    Is the notch based on the way the glass is cut? OR is there actually a screen with pixels that could be used behind the notch?

    If a TV ever came out with a notch that blocks part of the picture there would be riots in the streets. Ok ok not really, because there are over 20 major TV manufacturers. But seriously it's terrible on a phone.

    They should have just put black bars at all times and called it a day. Safari looks even more ridiculous btw (with white bars, lol).

    Even one of the pictures they have on their own website show part of the buttons being blocked by the silly notch (see image below). There's a reason why symmetry matters.

    And if you want to try to avoid the notch in video, then you get this stellar experience:

    Let's not forget, it's $300 more for this experience.

    Yet you have never held or seen the device in person. I bet it's really no big deal.
