So LG went on Reddit to ask Android fans what
they think about the notches but things went sour fast, and the post was deleted. Apparently, people really hate the notch,
and LG wasn't really happy with the answers it received. Here's what the post read originally: We've seen a LOT of comments around The Notch
over the past few weeks, from people who love the quick access to the menu to those that
hate the wasted screen space. We would love to gather some more feedback
to share with our R&D team and this is where you come in.
So what do you think? Love the Notch? Or is it Notch your thing? It's pretty obvious that LG is already far
into development with the G7 and that it will have a notch. However, what's good to see is the company
looking for feedback. No matter how loudly some yell about the notch
being unacceptable or stupid, as they undoubtedly will, LG is probably going to do it anyway. Having said that, Some people say after a
while you get used to the notch but I don't think that's the case.
I'm using the iPhone X since the launch. It's a great device but I never got used to
the notch, it was constantly annoying, terrible for watching a video. I'm not a fan and would not want this trend
to continue. In my opinion, it looks very ugly and I'd
rather have full-screen real estate.
I know other companies are implementing software
to hide the notch, which is an acceptable solution, but then I ask myself if that is
an option then why include it? You might say, it gives more screen real estate
but the fact of the matter is, it's not. Actually, it's taking away the screen real
estate. This is well explained by an active subscriber
of this channel a couple of days ago. As Jason explained, we measure screen size
So a phone says the iPhone X which has a display
of 5.8" Has less surface area than the Galaxy S9 which also has a 5.8" Display. Simply put, notch eats up the surface area
of the screen. At least with the iPhone, I understand WHY
they went with the notch, even though I don't like it but at least they went all the way
with no chin. But there are zero reasons for the rest of
the industry to go down the notched path seeing how no other OEM is doing the same thing.
It just looks stupid to have a notch AND a
chin…Makes it looks like you're desperate to look more like an iPhone. What Samsung is doing is way better in my
opinion. Push the screen altogether up as far as possible
and then stop. I don't see any advantage to using a notch
and having a soft bezel for most things versus having more room for sensors and not ever
having to worry about how apps deal with it.
It just feels that all these android companies
who're following this stupid notch unintentionally made Android for Samsung itself. Anyways, let me know your thoughts on this
and I'll see you'll tomorrow…Peace out!.
