    The biggest problem with the notch is that it stands out, you can see it a mile away and it will date your phone, everyone will know your phone is a 2018 model in years to come. In future designs there will be no notch and at a distance it will be harder to see if you have a 2019 model or a 2017 model. The notch is a design mistake that most phone companies will be embarrassed about when looking back at their back catalogue of failures.

    Better add some more time to that, because it seems it will be a more than one year with this trend. Not sure the tech for under the screen cameras will be ready next year.

    I get that this solution is ridiculous, but do you think that there's another way you could have a 'one for all' solution??

    everyone moaning about a notch and copied iPhone not correct they were not the 1st to do the notch and untill there's a under display camera were do u want them to put the front camera sensors etc it makes sense for the moment it's the way forward in my opinion oneplus follow suit but put there own advancements on to them...

    It's a design mistake in the same way 3.5" screens were.
    It's a design mistake in the same way 4" screens were.
    It's a design mistake in the same way antennas were.
    It's a design mistake in the same way headphone jacks were.
    It's a design mistake in the same way removable batteries were.
    It's a design mistake in the same way removable back plates were.
    It's a design mistake in the same way hardware buttons below the screen were.

    Get my point? Just because something is 'of it's time', does not mean it is a mistake, regardless of how much it stands out or is subtle. It just means it's the best tech available at that time. In the same way that we will look back on screens with ANY bezel in a couple of years and see it as outdated. In the same way if OnePlus instead of having the status bar up in the bop bezel on the OP6, they had put a dumb bezel with status bar taking up screen space (like 5T) would have made their 2018 phone look like outdated tech from last year.

    Trusting a brand? oh please, fanboyism of all sorts is the reason our species is ****** up. (includes religion, politics and any us Vs them argument btw).

    but if you're trusting a brand that wants your money (all of them) then you're especially naive.

    now there is the possibility that your comment was sarcastic, but I don't really see it.

    and the essential phone is the only phone to have done the notch right and at a company size much smaller than Oneplus. why did they choose to copy apple instead of essential is due to the same reason all Chinese companies did, laziness.

    Yes, there are 2 options.
    1. Have a tiny bezel top and bottom, camera in the top one with the status bar embedded within that top bezel to maximise and clean up the screen.
    2. Have all/most front facing sensors in a larger chin at the bottom, meaning only a tiny bezel is needed at the top, but you still have to have the status bar take up space at the top, and there are unnatural compromises that have to be made to have things like the camera at the bottom.

    1 is the OP6.
    2 is the Mi Mix2S.

    Both are valid solutions. Both have compromises. Personal preference differentiates which is best for each individual.
    But when done properly, option 1 can look like a lot like a Samsung S9 but with the status bar embedded in the top bezel, that's the one that would/should have the most appeal as a 'one for all' solution. A balanced look with balanced proportions, the most usable screen, few compromises aesthetically or practically. So long as the sides of the camera are blacked out so it's a continuous top bezel.

    it is all fine, why do they have a bezel in addition at the bottom that's what makes it awkward. At least P20 has the finger print sensor the for some odd reason, back to front. For OnePlus without that button why do they have that odd bezel at the bottom.

    And if you could also do what I suggested above, would there be anyone who would still be disappointed? (Not talking about people who want an iPhone 3gs size screen)

    Samsung haven't done it, so how is it the way forward?
    It's just be poorly thought up compromise and profit saver. A means to claim you have X amount of screen to body ratio, when it is actually unusable.

    Granted some of your points are limitations of technology at the time but some are purely marketing lead changes which the notch is, it is a solution to a problem that doesn't exist except in the minds of marketers.

    That's a good idea, still I hate that bottom bezel. Since they anyway have a bezel why do they have to struggle with the notch, they could've very well had a bezel itself instead.
