    So the screen will be better you're saying?
    Does that mean you'll be using 1440p?...
    Oh wait.
    The R15 has already confirmed you're going with a 1080p panel AGAIN.

    'Proud' owner of the 3, but the 5/T sucked and this phone will suck too unless you MASSIVELY improve the camera and FINALLY - after 4 years and when your competitors did it 2 years ago - go with a 1440p screen.

    Also if that's anything other than 2:1 then Jesus Christ it's worse than I feared.

    i'm android fans, and i see notch just insult android as OS leader. stop give us reason behind your story, using notch or not, i don't see maximize our screen (example oppo/vivo/asus). with notch, just make screen block away, how you say will maximize our screen? when you watch movie, video automatic decrease you screen, after you watch movie...walaaaa, notch. if you can make 97% body ratio screen when you use notch (just like iphoneX), then you can say, 'WE NEED THIS NOTCH!!' cause make bigger screen, with small body and very bezel-less!!

    Instead of fixing the real problems you're creating a new asymmetrical design and providing a software solution for that. You should have invested more in the camera department instead of focusing on increasing screen space. Screen resolution is gonna be full HD+ and not 2k so in effect you're decreasing ppi. I can understand implementing the notch if the bottom bezels are gone (like the iPhone X) but here you're keeping the bottom bezels and also implementing the notch which doesn't make any sense. This makes the viewing experience inconsistent overall and to fix that problem your adding black bars in the software side when needed. Do you see how convoluted the whole process is.

    And by readily available screens, do you mean going back to the ipsr lcd screens because that will be disastrous. Amoled is the future and if you guys go back to ips lcd idk what to say.

    Overall the next device of oneplus (idk why u r not calling it OP6, so) will probably be like op2 with little to no success. Am using OP3 right now and was planning to get OP6 but this doesn't make me interested in getting it at all. I'll wait for the next pixel, hopefully it won't have a notch and will definitely have the best camera.

    Hi @Pete
    With all my respect... when you are saying OP is different... Why tf do you copy the design from other manufactures?
    Keep it the same way you had it and you won’t lose the amount of customers you are gonna lose...

    These kind of apps are the result of your decision to have a notch oneplus. You see why this app came to existence?

    Totally agree. Ugly af, lol...

    A notched display is a wonderful idea as it maximizes the display experience!
    But in addition to this you should also consider about adding Apple like Face ID that actually cannot be fooled along with Under Display Fingerprint sensor!
    And please stick to AMOLED panel or upgrade it to Micro-LED panel but never go to IPS-LCD panel..
    The last but not least request is that please please please use a Market leading Camera setup on both rear and front because no one will mind an extra price if they get a superior camera setup like the one on Huawei P20 Pro with an excellent DXO Mark score of 109!❤️❤️

    No need to explain OP, its your prerogative anyways... I may have to stay with my OP5, love them huge bezels... and if I would go for an upgrade, OP5T would be the best...

    Oh, do I sound like I hate the NOTCH? Well I do...

    Meh, I'm done with oneplus anyway. Simply using slightly modified oppo shells and calling them original makes no sense. Hopefully someday the truth will be out.

    Because if we have an excellent camera setup on Huawei P20 Pro, we still lack OxygenOS in Huawei. So, if along with OxygenOS, we get extreme quality camera setup, it will then be called a Flagship killer! ❤️

    What a great discussion - just because of such a small design decision people get mad.


    You re writing, that all relevant parts are getting smaller and smaller. So why don t you use a bigger sensor in way better quality with OIS and optical zoom for the back camera instead of giving users some little space on the display?
    Just check the feedback you got at open ears forum camera and the postings here in the community.

    Why don t you give us an easy and stable casting solution combined with a full linux desktop, so we can use our phones with a BT mouse and keyboard like a laptop or PC?


    Here you can clearly see the future of an android device- making PC s and Laptops obsolete, all data can stay on our phones ,no need for an unsecure cloud service, no need to buy licensed software and expensive Hardware like samsungs DEX crap.

    Told @Carl in Hamburg: " Do something special, just copying others won t help, there will always be some manufacturer who s cheaper and faster in copying."

    Give us users a phone, we can be proud of, a phone we can use in a new,better way, be cooler than Apple!!!

    Once we re getting a great phone, we won t care about a "Notchgate" but concentrate on the money we save since we won t need any laptops, cameras etc. anymore.
