    I like flat screen and punch hole camera rather than popup.
    mechanical things are not durable

    I would take pop up over punch hole camera anytime. I don't take many selfies and would prefer screen without any holes as I use screen for about 95 % of use as compared to about 5% of front camera. I like the privacy of knowing when some app is accessing my camera as it pops up right away. OnePlus please don't go with a punch hole on OnePlus 8 as it will feel like a downgrade!!

    I would prefer water drop notch or punch hole camera as the aia is a continent of extreme climate that summer with dust storms which means chances of damage of motor of pop up camera

    Prefer Pop-up camera because I don't use face unlock, don't take selfie often, no worries about moving parts in the phone because only keep phone for an average two years as any Pop-up camera can last for two years. and foremost I love to have clean screen and of course privacy in case any bugs in apps or system won't be able to spy on you. I am typing on OP 7T though I would like to have OP 7T with Pop-up camera or OP7T pro with flat screen sadly neither is available so I can only dream of.

    Definitely a full screen display! A notch even a teardrop and punch out in the screen is no good! What's better than a pop-up camera? one or two under the screen!

    Pop-up is way better than any ugly notch or cut-out. It gives max screen size with no distractions and makes video look that much more amazing. Imo flat displays are better than curved displays. They give better grip, no accidental touches, no image cut-off at the edges, and more durability when dropped on edge.

    It is also better for privacy. I once had a pop-up show up on my computer advertising web cams of teenage girls who we unaware their system was being tapped. At least that's what it looked like for 2 seconds before my anti-virus started blaring alarms of malicious code and auto-force closed the page. I don't imagine these sicko hackers have stopped doing this and the pop-up camera on 1+ makes it much more secure if someone tries tapping into your phone, as they would only see the inside of the frame. Then if they try to extend it and spy on you, it isn't exactly subtle and you will know something is wrong.

    Then there's the party trick factor. Having the thing pop-up and retract is way more futuristic than the other options. I was worried about speed and durability at first, but my god talk about over engineering 1+. Not only is it fast enough to use face unlock in just under 1 sec, it is actually stronger than the frame of the phone itself. Some YouTubers intentionally smashed it against the ground as hard as possible directly on the camera corner while extended and it refused to die, even after the pitiful glass was utterly ruined and the frame squashed like play-dough.

    So yea 1+ pop-up camera 4 the WIN! Do NOT even think about getting rid of it! :)

    I would prefer waterdrop notch over pop-up in terms of sustainability. Plus it gives me the kind of feel that it is safe in terms of hardware.

    If I have to choose between the two, I will choose pop-up camera. Under display camera would be better but if it leads to worse picture quality, there is the 4th option of curved top bezel with camera in the middle as suggested in my post in the product design competition
    A reverse notch.

    I liked the idea behind pop up camera. but notch camera is awesome.
    Reason being, face unlock is fast on notch camera, photos are much clearer on notch camera. I feel like my phone parts are with me (later it doesnt pop up) always.. LOL
