    The notch is here to stay for the next 10 years.

    The poll needs a third choice for: do not care.

    The notch will get bigger. It’s the latest in high tech, and Apple will capitalize on it big time.

    Eventually the screen will be fully replaced by the notch, leaving only a small space at the bottom of the phone for that relatively ancient technology we call a display.

    LOL! I needed a good laugh.

    On a serious, the notch doesn’t bother me.

    I would imagine if there is a demand for a smaller notch, Apple would consider it and maybe even remove it one day.

    How soon or fast, if ever, is anyone’s guess.

    They should do but probably won’t. I have no idea though so have not voted.

    i won't upgrade to any of the new models launching September 2018.
    i will wait until September 2019.
    number 1 reason: notch.
    if its still there next year i will need to upgrade, but reluctantly.

    I sincerely hope so. Not buying a new iPhone until they remove the notch.

    No chance and why should they? It's a good design choice and it doesn't stop me from doing anything. I don't even realise it's there & it beats a useless bezel taking up more space than it needs to.

    I can’t think of another feature Apple have released that is as divisive as the notch. It’s certainly a Marmite aesthetic that you either love or hate lol. Personally I could live with it and it wouldn’t put me off buying an iPhone that had it, but the designer in me does think it looks more like a compromise to house the current technology rather than an appealing aesthetic.

    No, I think the notch will be in place for while. If you think about it, the 2019 iPhones are likely already being developed right now or in the process of the engineering state. Once the technology has the chance to actually mature where components can be reduced or be implemented differently, perhaps the notch will dissipate. But for now, there is no reason to believe it’s not going to be here for the iPhone for the next iPhone beyond 2018.

    Don't care. It does help to know which end is what when the screen is dark (the screen protector LOL)

    The third option is already covered. Don't care? Move along to the next thread.

    More than likely, the notch will get smaller in 2019.

    It's not going anywhere for a long time. The technology isn't there yet to hide everything in it behind the screen, and it also is something to make iPhones stand out from all the other similar devices out there now.

    I can't answer the question of the notch...I do know that I don't like it.

    But whether or not I buy a phone this year depends on other more important features. But all the rumors and leaks so far indicates no new phone this year for me.

    And that's fine really...my 6s on ios 9 works wonderfully (aside from my Youtube app).
