    And I agree with him especially when it comes to landscape mode for just about anything.

    Start at around 17:00 if you want to skip most of the dramatics to start seeing some examples of why things are pretty ridiculous and will annoy the end user experience.

    I'm watching as I'm typing this and he has my dying calling the top notch on the X a permanent-turd . He is speaking lots of truth though.

    Just start at 17:00 and watch for 4-5 minutes where he's showing examples of how things will look. The rest of the video is mostly ranting, but that 5 minute timeframe makes the experience seem really horrible.

    I usually don't watch this guy because his voice totally irritates me, but he's absolutely right about the ugly perma-notch. Design decisions at Apple are questionable.

    We all know the reason, if apple did that, it basically looks like a samsung s8 with the top and bottom black bezel

    :eek: Those would have teeny tiny bezels tho. Something Apple doesn't want anymore... apparently.

    This is like trying to endure Rachel Maddow. (This is not a political statement. It's just that he seems to be aping her annoying schtick.) The notch does suck, but this guy is worse.

    He's not wrong, you just can't defend it, I really think this phone is going to flop, it's gathering to much controversy and hate and will end up not being cool to own and therefore not sell, it's what everybody is thinking that knows or appreciates good hardware and software.

    I agree ! I never thought I would say this but Samsung's s8 looks so much better without that notch.

    I was in tears after this video. When he said he should edit it to put a notch and bar on the top & bottom was too funny.

    This!! I still can’t believe how few people are talking about the red dot. It’s sooooo. Ugly and doesn’t go with hardly any colors. I always go with silver since it goes with just about every color. Why did it have to be red???

    I’ll look at the notch all day long vs. have to listen to that guy for 5 minutes.

    I appreciate techs in general, but after listening to his rant...it made sense. What happened to designer? what happened to the passion of tech?

    the 5.8" screen is fake.

    If you want to remove the notch from viewing movies or videos you need also end up losing vertical to preserve the aspect ratio.


    This phone is getting worse and worse.

    PermaTurd is hilarious. He is right. LMAO. If Samsung did this...iFans will have never let up. Just like y'all did with the Note 7 battery issue and the constant jokes. That notch is just lol.
