Lol. I think 90% of people that buy OP phones buy it for the RAW speed. This thing is quick.

And yh, being able to hide the notch is quite handy. My problem with the design is why add a notch if you still gonna have a chin below? I guess they don't have curved display technology yet.

Or maybe, leaving something for the 6T? Lol



I agree with you tho. Perhaps they are but it's pretty costly to remove the chin, it will increase the price and potential buyers will scream on top of their lungs. I learnt Apple has a patent on that but not too sure tho

Lol. I actually don't mind the notch. I don't love it, but it doesn't bother me. I like having ALOT of screen. More screen in the same form factor of my previous phone. It's great.

But it's also Amazing to know that if you don't want to look at it, you don't have to. More manufacturers should do this.

Photos of Notch-less OnePlus 6 attached. grin
exactly , I don’t understand the fuss people make over notches , I personally don’t even care if it’s there or not , I barely notice it on my device .. although it’s the IPX.. the notch isn’t the big bad people make it out to be, bezels are.


EDIT: Also please share your wallpaper. I like blue.

Google doesnt take design serious hence the reason why many people want Samsung phones running stock. Unfortunately, reviewers are biased else they would have given Google the HTC and Sony treatment

Agreed Google care less about design and features. They are more interested in performance and the pixel 2 delivers in that aspect. I don't think reviewers have been biased about the pixel 2 and pixel 2 XL. That thing is a beast. It is the smoothest Android phone, has the best camera (maybe until recent ) and why many reveiwers and developers choose it as their daily driver. I'll choose a Samsung phone over it though. Still missing features like memory card expansion, headphone jack, wireless charging and some software tweaks. Hopefully with Android p they have included some of the necessary software features.

This is where I give it to Apple for the iPhone X. That's still the closest to an all screen phone. The up and bottom bezels are the same with the notch, no chin.

Removing the chin is only possible on an oled display as it is flexible and can be bent to remove the chin.

Well reviewers are biased about Pixel series. Yes, the performances and camera are indeed great but it's bland and the designs are boring. Samsung was almost killed with the release of the S9 series, it was mocked and tagged S8s while Pixels never got this treatment. Same thing is presently happening, the leak of Pixel 3 isn't criticized by the media but Note 9 is called boring. Androidxentral, androidPolice, phonearena and droid-life are reporting same thing.

Sony was bashed times without number for it's design, HTC was bashed since the release of M8, LG was bashed when they released G6 with 821 but Huawei gets a pass with the P20 even tho the chipset is the same one on Mate 8 of last year. Apple likewise doesn't get bashed.

They even credit Apple for "debuting " the notch even tho Sharp and Essential did so months before iPhone X got released.

Don't expect anything from Pixel 3 besides wireless charging

Lol. Yes the price goes up. They said last year that they don't have the technology to make an all screen front device. I'm pretty sure they getting there.

Lol. I saw that prototype. I don't know how that will work. Moving part? Mhen nah!

Abeg. Let people just put the proximity sensor and camera in a small top bezel abeg. Or notch it up.

All screen phone. Lol. They should give it a rest unless they want to do. No proximity sensor and front camera. Lol

Na, not a patent issue. It's about the cost of using flexible display. https://www.askvg.com/why-do-android-mobile-phones-with-notch-have-chin/

There's a difference
Those other brands you mentioned have phones with boring designs and they don't shine in any department. They're just good

Good isn't going to save you from being talked down on for your poor design


The Pixel However, has the best camera on any smartphone according to MKBHD and other great YouTubers.
That saves it from being shamed for it's boring design
It also has one of the most fluid Android intercases on any phone

And it get's updates before many other brands

I assume you know all this, so, why then, do you try to compare the Pixel with those brands

Pls don't

There isn't any difference

Camera isn't the only thing that makes up a smatphone. It's not a digital camera, remember.

Sony and HTC are as fluid as Pixel because they all embrace near stock UI.

Pixel 2 debutted with all sorts of problems

Display
Looking washed out and dull
Exhibiting blue shift at slight angles
Black smear issue
Exhibiting burn in

Bluetooth
High pitched noises
Random reboot
Sidesceen failing to recognise touches
Buzzing sound from the speaker

How would the media react if HTC or Sony flagships debuts with these problems?

Looks like the pixel 3 will have the ugliest and biggest notch ever from recent leaks. Not just the biggest notch but also a very big chin.
Which OEM does google outsource the pixel hardware to? If its still HTC then no surprises there.
