    I actually like the curved screen on my new OnePlus 8. I was originally concerned that it would cause me to accidentally touch something, but I have not had any issues with this yet.
    I really like the feel and look of a curved display. I will acknowledge that there is some very minor image distortion, but I personally am okay with it. As for the durability of the phone screen, I think that a good case with a lip should solve that issue. said:
    At the end of the day, I think it will be a matter of personal preference. Some will prefer the design of a curved screen and others will prefer flat screens.
    I think there is a place in the world for both types of screens.

    Flat, and with a bit of a distance (1-3mm) from the sides:
    - easier not to break
    - easier not to touch accidentally
    - easier to hold
    - better with cases and gestures
    - easier and cleaner to put a flat protection

    Flat,18:9, max 70mm width, on screen menu, no notch, no punch hole!
    A small top bezel like samsung s9 doesn't hurt. It also contains iris scanner that works well with mask while more secure than apple face id

    Now that I have been using this phone for almost a year, I can confirm that a curved screen has 99% no impact on the way I use the phone. 1% of the time there is web content that is too close to the edge that cannot be clicked and I just rotate the screen. I still love this phone for how advanced it is. Great phone, keep the price real.

    flat screen. I have the 7 Pro and don't like the curved for gaming or reading text that takes up the entire screen.

    I would have to say flat. I have an OP 8 and I love the curved screen. I just tried out the OP 8T and the flat screen on that phone just feels so smooth. I have to say flat is better

    Flat screen! I really dislike both the esthetics and the usability of curved screens.
