    Just because these bunch of youtubers says that they don't like curved display i think they are switching to flat display but what I think is that curved display looks sick. I haven't used a curved display phone for a long time and maybe there are some drawback while using it but I don't think it matters that much. Without curved display I don't think you will get that premium design feeling. What are yours opinions?

    Hi there,

    I would dispute the "Just because these bunch of youtubers says that they don't like curved display" claim. If you look at at most comments from Community, you'll see a common trend emerging. Feel free to have a look at this debate about it:

    Tbh the feeling in the hand of curved is better imho. Yet just protection is generally harder to use with them ;)

    Hi,
    Though curved structure in the phone screen looks stylish but the glaring lights off the edges seem bothering. My opinion says it looks smart choice but I still like flat screen.
    Thanks

    I'd always go with X Pro versions regardless of flat or curved (unless the flat vs curved would be the ONLY differance). Curved is both for looks and to make it feel smaller. But it opens up for more accidental touches, more exposed impact surface when dropped, harder to protect efficently with a case, more expensive and poorly fitted screen protection (practically forcing you to use UV-glued).
    So if I got to choose from 2 otherwise identical phones one with flat and one with curved... I'd choose flat for better protection possibilities over a possibly better look.

    The feel is really great, but accidental touches lead to awkward situations.
    Spoils the experience at times.

    They usually open up quite fast for me to play with them
