    my oneplus7pro is the first curved display phone I have,and it is a beautiful aestethical device...the only uncomfortable issue is the glitter in the borders when the is another light source, but in general it is a good experience

    I have a OnePlus 7t Pro & it's my first curved screen phone and i just love the in-hand feel and the quality of this screen . Long story short it is way better than the flat screen on my previous OnePlus 6t.
    So keep bringing the curves OnePlus....

    Please Be Noted that peoples who prefer flat screen have never used a curved screen. you can see all of them have older OnePlus Devices that doesn't have curved screen.

    Curved screen is all modern and sleek.. yeah. Even though it has disadvantages, it's not a deal breaker for me.

    As a developer, it creates a challenge to prevent app content from bleeding on the edges.

    A solution would be if all phones had better curved screens[e]1f44d[/e]🏻

    I've been using the OP7Pro since March now and still feel the same like in beginning...
    The curved display is okay for most uses but is very disturbing for photography...
    Because of glare and reflections it's a lot of times hard to see parts of the scene at the edges and makes framing difficult...
    So I would certainly prefer a flat screen...

    @KeBlam How about a poll...?

    I prefer flat screens and I hope that the OnePlus 8 will have a flat screen as well.
    I thought curved screens were cool once, like with the S8, but I believe their time is up.

    Here's why:

    1. Curved screens break more easily, as mentioned before.
    2. The curved part is less "usable" than the rest.
    3. The biggest of all, there are better options for OnePlus now. They have done a great job shrinking the chin with the 7 and 7T Pro, but the problem is that they also shrunk the other bezels so that the device still feels like it has a chin. The curved screen doesn't help with this. The curved screen by default makes the bezels remain uneven, and without the curved screen, OnePlus could have released a phone with a flat panel display and uniform bezels comparable to the iPhone 11 Pro, nearly indistinguishable from a full-on flagship. I (and probably many others) believe that it isn't about making each individual bezel as small as possible, uniformity also counts. Who else would this appeal to?

    flat screen all the way.you can apply a tempered glass screen protector on a flat screen. this helps with smudges and scratches on the screen you can just replace the TP screen protector. another issue is in an office environment you get glare on the curved edges. flat screens are a major major GO

    I have the OnePlus 6 with me, as well as the 7 Pro. In general, I don't care about flat vs curved, but you cannot deny the fact that the Android 10 side gesture feels a lot better on curved. So I'll go with that.
