    Considering how in the past Oppo and OnePlus shared many design aspects, I would like to ask you guys what would you prefer:

    A) A notchless R15 with similarly sized top and bottom bezels.
    B) A notched R15.

    Yeah and it feels odd to have phone bezels uneven, especially for gaming.

    If there was no bottom bezel, I'd understand the top notch, but this way you just get an asymmetrical device.

    I hope the team can understand this rather than copying everyone else blindly.

    The notch on the Essential Phone is quite unnoticeable. So, I won't mind that.

    A

    The notch is a hideous design failure on every phone. It is not about symmetry, you can have a five sided screen that looks killer good.

    You did a bit of cheating there. :p The top bezel probably should be a bit bigger considering the size of the notch. :sweatsmile:

    And yeah, like you said already, I have no issues with the notch, is just the use of a place that would otherwise be black, next to the needed sensors and that can fit the status bar. So in the end you do get more screen.

    But if you are putting a big bezel on the bottom, there goes the reason for it. That bezel is not as giant as some have made, but its still probably more than enough to make a 180 spin and put the sensors there. But since I'm not a product developer I will wait to see the explanations from those that know about it and see if they are acceptable. :p

    Wish this poll was created earlier, so OnePlus team would have seen this and ditch the idea of notch.
    Till now, they must have already designed it (most probably a notch design) and production will begin soon.

    Lmao yeah illuminate edition.

    Saw a cgi render earlier this year of a screen with a cut off corner to give place for the front cam.

    As we say in Portuguese: "Nim". Sure, I did not make the bezel as thick as the notch, but if you check, you have quite a lot of space after the camera and the speaker. So, please forgive this small cheating. ;)
