    Could the oneplus 6 hide notch option be tweaked so that the rounding of the corners matches the roundness of the bottom corners for symmetry. This would look better especially for viewing videos.

    The notch has been designed so that it won't really ever be bothering much to those who don't like it so yes, most notch phones have that option and the same happens for 1+6.

    i don't know what is more ridiculous, the notch or the option to cover the notch, I'm guessing most people with an iPhone X like it because it shows everyone they have the newest phone

    The notch worth the nice look of a full screen.

    hiding the notch is not worth it.seen the videos.
    it makes it look like the 5T.
    use the phone for what it is.

    God forbid someone were to think you're using a OnePlus 5T.

    Even if the notch is hidden it will bring value and more screen because the notification icons are "in" the top bezel. I don't know am i going to hide it or not but when i'm viewing videos i don't want the notch to be there. i have noticed that the top corners are way sharper than the bottom corners when the top bezel is filled and this i would like to see fixed.

    I completely agree 101% with you there MarttiMikael. It truly erks me to see the ghastly sharp 90° edges at the top when the notch is hidden, while the (absolute polar opposite) smooth complementing curves of the bottom corners are permanently in view, and follows the overall design of the rest of the phone's build, accents and aesthetics.

    OP should really look into tweaking that aspect of the black bar that hides the notch; if not to satsify us users who find it absolutely jarring, then to simply bring their UI design (at least where the display's corners are concerned) full circle, unified, integrated and complete. Because as it is, it just looks like a tacked-on after-thought. Ugh!!

    I totaly agree as well. Just got my OnePlus 6 (first OnePlus phone), and I was pretty disappointed that
    the corners are pretty much square, which is not the same as the bottom of the display.
    I know there are apps to make this happen, but I would love to have this feature as a default option in the settings because it would be way more stable and show on the lockscreen as well. In my opinion it looks way better with rounded corners, and it makes it look like the status bar is part of a second screen.
    I have added some pictures with the default look vs with rounded corners.

    Kind regards,

    (Still happy with my OnePlus 6 though)

    This GUI feature (make all corners equal when the notch is hidden) is still not adressed by OP in the latest firmwares??

    Do you know is this is already reported/requested to OP?

    This is really bad looking :(

    EDIT: what free "rounded corners" app do you guys advice?

    even without hiding the notch, the bottom corners are not as rounded as the top ones #OCDKickingIn

    I'm not sure if it has been reported. I saw someone say, in another post, that after they had put in a ticket on the issue, OP responded saying that they won't be addressing it. I don't know how true that is.

    I've been using Rounded Corners (that's the name of the app) ever since I've first booted up my OP6. works like a charm. Though I really would much prefer the default black bar to be curved at the top corners to compliment the corners of the black bar at the bottom, so that I wouldn't have to have this app running in the background all the time. there's no noticeable effect on my battery life though, so I guess it's an ok compromise... idk

    The app is unironically called "Rounded Corner" and can be found in the Play store
