    Would say from real Apple fans, hoping the notch will get smaller on next iphone (MKBHD, everythingapplepro, ijustine)

    MKBHD isn't Apple Fan. Not sure about EverythingApplePro or iJustine

    MKBHD may not be a "fanboy" but he is a apple fan... He uses an iphone and android phone side by side every day and render's all his videos on Mac

    I don't know why everyone use Mac for rendering. Maybe it's fast and HD

    I mean only a very small % of users like it. most have just accepted it and moved on.

    but among the way it is implemented, only Apple had a meaningful reason for it. all the others just copied it blindly. and did a poor job at that. personally, I hate the essential design the most.

    OnePlus also tried the essential Design. But they say they don't want to compromise the camera quality

    Sridhar Ananthanarayanan, Apr 30, 2018 :
    personally, I like uniformity and symmetry.

    in that respect, only Samsung has held its position as an innovator with the best designs and hardware.

    Regardless of personal taste, isn't Essential's reason meaningful? Or OnePlus'? Or any other brands'?

    The logic is the same, fit sensors and camera in the notch and add screen estate.

    EDIT: not debating that all of them (except Essential) are trying to ride Apple's wave.

    just make the OnePlus 6 notch into a fixed "always on display"

    no matter the screen, it will show the battery, time, cell reception and notification

    videos won't go there, nor games or anything else
    just a status bar

    it will make the notch an actually useful extra screen real-estate

    yes. I was once a fan of the rich features their OS offers.

    having gotten used to the simplicity of OOS, I don't think I would ever like too many extras, some of which are unnecessary, even useless.

    it is like a clean desk vs a desk with a lot of things kept well organised. I would still prefer to work on a clean desk.

    Apple's idea was to completely remove all bezels and the notch was a necessity from hardware point of view.

    Essential did a bad job because of lack of symmetry. same reason why I don't like the Mi Mix series.

    All the others just want to look like an iPhone because everyone wants to look like a leader.
