    Who is the one whining about a notch on a phone that they purchased, knowing beforehand it had a notch????

    At least with other manufacturers there is an alternative!
    Huawei P20 Pro - Huawei Mate 10 Pro
    Xiaomi Mi8 - Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s

    I am not responsible for the fact OnePlus only offers one single model!

    yes we are aware that you're not responsible for any part whether it be development or manufacturing of the OnePlus 6. OnePlus does not have to offer any other options because the OnePlus 6 is fine just the way it is. only a few are complaining about it

    I am fine with it. Happily give up some of my notification space for a bigger display taking up more of the phone and reducing the size of forehead and chin.

    Only thing I really want in my bar is battery level and time. Even reception level and WiFi are mostly redundant, just reassurance, not information I really need all of the time. Clutter.

    The notch is probably an iteration of technology and will disappear but I've no issue with it for now.

    I really like their current "hide notch" option, that combined with gestures is like the option on samsung browser to hide navigation buttons and status bar which looks more immersive.

    It reminds me to the V20 with its secondary screen (but V20 had one of the worst looking screens I've seen on a phone and terrible light bleeding from secondary screen), they still need to fix the radius on the top to match the bottom ones and add the option to completely disable the notch and move the status bar under it for those who prefer it that way.

    3 simple options, everybody happy.

    Honestly, the notch doesn't bother me in the slightest. Nor do I specifically enjoy it. It's just there.

    Doesn't mix 2 put camera on the bottom so you have to remember to flip the phone to use front camera?

    What about a "scrolling" notification bar? Like a little stock ticker scrolling from right to left showing everything?

    That is not the issue! The issue is, that notifications, that usually are displayed, cannot be displayed, because the notch takes up space of the status bar.

    This is not a problem 24/7, but it can be annoying.

    Yes, the Mi Mix 2(s) has the frontal cam on the bottom. Since I do not care for selfies that much, I don't mind it.

    A sliding status bar would not be helpful. I can drag down the current, limited status bar. It has the same effect. I want all the icons in the status bar visible, so I know, what notifications are there.

    Hmm, in that case perhaps an "overflow" setting. So it normally is up by the notch but with enough notifications it automatically moves downward. Or simply it stays put under the notch...

    surprisingly the notch doesn't bother me as I thought but when zooming to fill on youtube videos one side with squared corners and the other one with rounded corners disturbs me a lot lol

    Sure.... workarounds are plenty.
    Wouldn't need one if there wasn't a notch.

    I'd prefer something notch free with a little bit of chin and forehead instead. :p

    The fact that the existence of the notch needs justification or such workarounds to "hide" it is enough to show how stupid a design decision it is.
