    pretty sure they make the screen look blurry and also anything other than glass feels naff

    I think that might be a bit over the top. Although I've never actually used one yet :)

    it is not at all as bad as what's shown in this thread .....it's actually rare for the phone to catch such a glare and even if it does ....it's only in some angles ......it's not at all annoying.

    I understand that there is glare, but I've had this issues on every phone I've had when outside or under light. Depending on the angle of the light causes glare on the screen. Curved edges catch more light but I don't find it any more distracting than any other phone personally.

    Exactly this phone just catches way more angles so when walking the glare is much more distraction with natural motion. Again I decided to keep mine cause the phone is a beast. The phone however was really close to perfection but I think it was a misstep with the curved angles.

    I don't walk around looking at my phone very often, so not a huge issue for me.
    I'll be interested to see how a curved screen holds up when watching a video while travelling though.

    the biggest let down for me is the camera, sometimes takes great pictures but more often than not it doesn't.

    Just bought the Op7 pro and I feel the same. I mean what's the purpose of a curved edge screen anyway? Hope they go back to the flat screen next time..

    Unfortunately, not an option in some parts of the world.

    that's why others are trying to help. to me the curve itself is not particularly the glare but the entire screen seems more resflective than most screens. however it does have the factory screen protector on it. I normally don't have those

    just to follow up my comments I've decided to keep the phone. yes I'd prefer a flat screen but after having used it for 3 days now it's ok for me and the other positives about the phone outweigh it.

    I would have been totally satisfied with a Note 9 design that has small bezels on the top & bottom, that is flat screen. Not sure why the obsession with no bezel screen really... It is not like you get a tons more screen real estate, and most videos are still using 16x9 aspect ratio anyways. How many extra lines of text is gained? Our phones are big enough as is! :) Hence why it was actually refreshing to see the likes of Samsung S10e. The punch hole won't bother me but I feel it wasn't totally necessary.

    What did you expect with a curved screen? They all have this problem. My s8 Plus was the same way. I hate curved screens but I bought the phone knowing that it had a curved display.

    I prefer not having a front facing camera, and if that means no notch then great. I'm not a selfie person anyway so camera on front is a waste for me. And I feel a little less watched (although sure they're still listening!)

    I know what you mean about handset size. Manufacturers have replaced bezels/notches with larger screens rather than reduce device size. While the 7 Pro isn't that big, the taller screen can be a little awkward when using one hand. I guess it would have meant smaller battery if they hadn't so perhaps necessary. Samsung's One UI approach which brings navigation lower, might be beneficial.

    Too bad the companies don't seem to have the luxury to offer two different versions: one with no notch and no selfie camera, and the one with selfie camera that has either a notch, punch hole, or a small bezel. That would be kinda expensive.

    I use selfies on a regular basis, so taking it out won't be good for me, but I can see the point of view from a person like you who has no need for it.

    I also have the Note 9 btw, so I can say that One UI is a very intuitive OS and vastly improved in terms of responsiveness and customization. I actually like that you can operate gesture navigation from the side edges using Good Lock. Not sure how others feel, but for me, stretching my thumbs to the bottom of the screen to navigate the screen is not enjoyable with one hand use. So that is a plus.

    I know that the curves on the 7 Pro is different than the Samsung one, but not sure how much different they are when it comes to distorting screen content and reflecting vertical lines. I have gotten used to the Note 9 screen, so unless the curve is really badly designed, I can'c see myself being terribly upset by it.

    BUT... I would still take flat screen over curved one any day.

    So oppo can make a.pop up phone with a flat display so this just proves OnePlus did it for looks or to copy samsung.

    shame the oppo phone with the 7 pro internals and oxygen is would have been amazing.

    I would've rather had the flat display too.
