    Why are you all so negative about the notch?
    It's right now the best possible way to get a fullscreen experience with as less bezels as possible.
    The Notifications are moving up where the notch is, but the screen itself is gonna stay just the same as always.
    You guys are not reading the articles right, when watching videos etc. you won't see the notch because they optimized the software so the video will stretch out just until it hits the notch. Thanks to OLED technology.

    Obviously notch is a bad design decision. No technology is bigger than user preference. Good that I bought OP5T. Will wait for Apple to remove notch and other sheep to follow in future phone models.

    Read the whole thing. Still not buying a notched phone.

    1. It's not a coincidence that everyone started doing this after Apple did, just like omitting the headphone jack.

    2. It's still possible to make minimal bezels with an intact screen, like Samsung and LG are doing, and like OnePlus did with the 5T.

    when you use 18:9 screen, you have black, flat, empty screen when watching video. why should using notch for full screen? iphone X using notch, cause they make almost 97% all screen. android only 90%, sooooo?? why must using notch? BTW, mi mix can do it, why we can't?

    Having a Oneplus device IS a limited thing, becoming a lemming just because it's the trend never made my life and never will. If I have to chose a lessor phone without a notch I will not back down and settle for a notchy phone (I do have other criteria that the OP6 is breaking).

    I think i will buy the OP6 only for the notch.It simply increases the screen on the left and right side of the upper end.Whats bad about that? Its even looks good i personally think.

    Can someone please explain to my why the notch is so hated? You get more real estate and thinner bezels. I mean sure, it's kind of ugly and not a very well thought-out design but still. Please explain.

    Samsung's display is technically not edge-to-edge.

    Last time I made a "why" question on these forums, people attacked me. Good luck with that.

    Sticking with my Oneplus 5T, the notch is hideous in my opinion.

    I was an Apple fan until they released the iPhone X, that’s why I brought the Oneplus 5T.

    What a terrible design change :-(
