    No screen real-estate has been sacrificed. It has been liberated from the top bezel AND liberated from the status bar. 2 for the price of 1. The notch provides you this, therefore is absolutely not useless. It's implementation is specifically because it has a very good purpose.
    Not to mention all the compromises that have to be made to put everything down in the large chin at the bottom of a phone like the Mix2s, which are solved by the notch.

    How many inches of screen do you gain by carving out the bezzel?

    A central placement is optimal for our front-facing camera for several reasons. Moving the module elsewhere would also affect the angle of the camera, making it harder to orient the camera and take photos quickly. Such a move would also compromise the speed and reliability of our industry-leading Face Unlock feature. We also considered using a smaller module, but decided not to as this would have lowered the quality of your photos.

    Will the notch cut off my notifications if the status bar reaches a certain width?
    OxygenOS will be optimized to work alongside the notch, ensuring you will always be able to view and access all of your notifications.

    Here. You have been answered already by none other than Pete himself.

    So he pretty much makes excuses just like companies saying they don't have room to include the headphone jack anymore... Gotcha, he sure told me

    Now it's you who's making too much sense..... You can sure choose the mix 2 if you want to. No one's stopping you. Or the gs9. You're just being ignorant.

    Actually I'm here giving my opinion on it. Whereas the two of you are trying to change people's minds on the situation by telling them that its a feature they will learn to love and its something they need to get familiar with.

    I guess until the OP6 is released and it is tested alongside the Mi Mix 2 we won't really know which is the better design? I guess what Carl has done is create a mass of publicity about the new OP6 probably far more than Samsung manage with their "boring" S9 designs. Carl is probably sitting back now and enjoying the free publicity thinking "job done!"

    Oneplus have gone down from being a start up Company who use to do things differently... hence gave 3 great devices till 2016...now they think since they have gained enough popularity n name in the market hence they are just copying models. Now, they are focusing totally on marketing techniques (cheap) to achieve their sales target.

    Disappointed.

    Yo.
    You are going to read a very unpopular opinion.
    Here is why the notch is no problem at all (apart from looks, but that is subjective).

    The OnePlus 6 will have a notch and it's nothing to be worried about. This is no cut-out! This is like two ears that are added to your regular screen.

    Have a nice day.

    By the way, you have been click baited. This is no [Let's Talk]

    I would prefer without but I could live with it. Not a big deal.

    Right! I thought that the notch did in fact remove from the aspect ratio! The only issue I had, was it interfering with watching video! Okay maybe this does look promising.

    My problem is not not actually the notch but the ugly chin bezel compared with the thin lines around. I had in my hands the R15 and it doesn't look so good except if a solution comes to hide it like the P20 does but then you are losing a part of the screen again. It's a very controversial topic, personally I like the 5t and the S9 design better.
