After 9 years, looks like I’ll finally be moving away from Samsung. Fuck your notch.

Please excuse my ignorance, but what is a notch? I don’t see anything odd in those drawings.

Well. I bought the S9+, might jump train when the Note 9 appears.

If that will be the last non notch phone with a headphone jack, I’ll be good until a company gets it’s senses together even if it will happen in 5-10 years time. The s2 supports Android 8.1. Works almost ok. I bet that the Note 9 will support whatever Android appears in the upcoming time even after Samsung ditches it.

What I wish they’d design is a Note with a removable battery and flat screen that is easy to encase, the assholes.

No, not fuck the notch. Fuck this ridiculous push for bezel-less that caused the notch, brought back 1960’s TV corners and threw out all screen standards established over the last decade. Screen to body % is the new dick measuring in place of thinness.

I don’t understand the hate for the notch, it’s more screen at the end of the day… And that’s a good thing?

Plus, I’d imagine Samsung will do the same as Huawei and have an option in display settings just to darken the full notification bar again so that you can either have it with a notch, or without.

The choice, I’m sure, will be yours!

I’ve owned Galaxy S -S8 at an every other year interval. My requirements are simple: speed, comfort, a headphone jack and no ocd nightmare of a notch. My list is literally growing yearly for things to retain…

Am I the only person that doesn’t want bezel-less phones?

How the hell am I supposed to hold the damn thing without my palm touching something on the edge of the screen?

I don’t put cases on my phone. Never have and I don’t plan on starting any time soon. I shouldn’t need to put a case on my phone to add a bezel so that I can hold the damn thing without touching the screen.

Samsung 1 year ago: “Ha! Look at that stupid design.”

Samsung now: “We’re proud to introduce a revolutionary new style of phone.”

I think it’s inevitable in some form, if they can’t embedd the components in the screen

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again. The problem was never the *notch.* It was the software built around it. If you make it so that going into fullscreen in an app or video doesn’t cause the notch to clip content it’s just fine.

Notches are the growing pains of the industry, hopefully the last before futuristic-style flexible, full-area screens which have invisible, built-in-screen cameras/sensors and multi-LED backlights for status indicators… Where’s Star Trek when you need another wave of tech inspiration?

Most sites at the end of 2017: Samsung is going to give us foldable phones in 2018.

Me: Oh HELL yeah!!! Take my money Sammy!!!

Samsung in 2018: Umm, uhh, how about a notch instead?

Me: Nnnnnooooooooooooo!!!!!!

Two to three years ago, /r/Android was complaining about bezel thickness down to 1/10th of a millimetre and worshipping phones with the highest screen-bezel ratio. Now, manufacturers have taken things to the extreme =point where cameras and sensors have to intrude into the display, and /r/Android complains about there being not *enough* bezel.

The lesson: be careful what you wish for.

I’m really happy with the notch if they just allow to make it black.

Dear Samsung,

All I want is a phone I could hold without constantly pressing things on the edge of the screen or buttons I didn’t intend to touch. It’s not making your phones more slippey than bars of soap, put a proper fucking battery in it, and put on a small amount of bezel so that I’m not constantly touching the edge of the screen.

Sincerely,

Regretful customer

Samsung seems to be pursuing a phone whose front is 100% screen. I can see them including a notch and upping their screen to body ratio that much more. They’re running out of other ways to expand it. I’m fine with it as long as the other bezels are still minuscule.

I see no problem with this design. I HATE the “notch trend” but I don’t mind it when *there’s an actual reason to have it*. Notice how, unlike all the other Chinese crap makers desperate to copy Apple, Samsung has made the screen fill the rest of the front, much like the iPhone. If you have a notch and the rest of the front legitimately is screen, (like Apple and Samsung), then there’s a good reason to have it. If you have a notch and still have a forehead and/or chin, then there’s no reason to have it and you’re… Read more »

These screens are just silly cause you can’t hold the phone anymore without touching stuff on the screen.

“Patent submissions are not, however, a confirmation of what we’ll see in upcoming devices: tech companies produce many patents, often as a competitive tactic rather than because it represents something they actually want to build.”

But hey Android Authority wins the Notch outrage article of the day.
