    I bought a new phone, about a week ago, and it came with a notch. I don't see what the big deal is about whether a phone has a notch or not. Does having a phone, with a notch, completely destroy the user experience? Is the whole aggravation, that people have, with a notch simply an OCD thing?
    I really don't understand what the problem is.

      Exactly I feel the same, it's OCD Maybe or people just exaggerated the problems... I have Poco phone with Snapdragon 845, the cheapest budget flagship with notch and I love it more than OnePlus because I have install Oxygen Os and removed miui

    Honestly think the default MIUI is the nicest rom. Icons and the overall interface on stock android have never been my favourite, less so Samsung or any other manufacturer. Been on the Mi Mix 2 for a few years now, sad that I missed out on wireless charging on the 2S and 3.

  • One cheeky bih
    One cheeky bih 2 months ago

    Thicker with less battery life, just so it will be bezeless. I'm probably the only person who is pro bezel.

    • One cheeky bih
      One cheeky bih Month ago

      @Cyka CheekiBreeki I've never had a problem with bezels, the way I see it phones are completely functional with them. So that's why I'm not too wowed by these bezel less screens. I misclick my phone all the time when I'm playing clash Royale, so the misclicking is more apparent depending on what apps you use. Too each their own I guess.

    • Cyka CheekiBreeki
      Cyka CheekiBreeki Month ago

      @One cheeky bih You aren't knocking on my phone we are just have a little discussion.
      The battery thing can be fixed the honor magic 2 has a 4000 mAh battery in it. The only time where I ever misclicked is while watching YT videos sometimes it das forward some 50 secs. Maybe it's just me but bezel less phones have been a dream of mine since I first saw the first iPhone and since now we are getting close to it I jumped on the hype train.

    • One cheeky bih
      One cheeky bih Month ago

      @Cyka CheekiBreeki By no means I'm not knocking you're phone, it's probably one of better designs today. It's leagues better than having a notch. I just don't see the big deal about bezeless screens, as aesthetics arent important to me. I'd much rather a phone with a bezel and better battery life that wont misclick when I'm playing a game.

    • Cyka CheekiBreeki
      Cyka CheekiBreeki Month ago

      @One cheeky bih The MIX doesn't have a curved edge but it does have curved corners which greatly improved durability since the force of impact has been dispersed over a greater area.
      True mechanical parts do usually fail first but we had sliding phones for decades and nobody had a problem with them and the MIX 3 slider has been tested to 300 000 slides so it should be okay. Honestly it's totally worth the extra thickness since you do that notice it and it makes you awe everytime you look at the screen.

    • One cheeky bih
      One cheeky bih Month ago

      @Cyka CheekiBreeki If you drop a device with a curved glass edge it is obviously more succeptible to cracking. Another problem with sliding phones is that they introduce mechanical moving parts, which anyone who does electronic repair will tell you, are more susceptible to damage over time due to wear tear. An extra 0.5 inch of screen isn't worth the sacrifice of less durability, and battery life. Sorry.

      @Vasilis Tsonis it's really good but buy the international version :D. MIUI is a bit intrusive in terms of saving battery but you can get around that disabling and enabling some stuff. Should buy the Mix 3 with the 855 tho now that it's selling but you would have to wait till the international version is released.

    The male-adolescent-oriented innuendo is getting old. Which is a shame, this is such an informative channel. Granted, I may not represent your base demographic. But part of my job is getting young women and girls into STEM, which studies and surveys show they are hesitant to do in large part due to the tired old pubescent-boy stuff that this channel regularly perpetuates. I'm also the father of two girls, but I'd like to think anyone/everyone would want to help tech be more inclusive, in part because the US is quickly losing its lead and supply of high-tech talent. So I'm unsubscribing. I'll check back every few months or so.

    Sucks that Apple is a good branding company, therefore the companies who have the superior product, have to limit their potential, because they follow TRENDS, rather than superior technology. Imglad i can move my icons around my screen.... Thank goodness google didnt copy that!

  • Brandon Kaczor
    Brandon Kaczor 4 months ago

    You want to see the way the phones should still look? LG G2... Just as small of bezels as an IPhone X. And a tone of useful hardware.... Like a headphone jack:). Oh and an IR blaster, which also seems to have near disappeared, yet was very handy. Apple never had an IR blaster. Apple has a wired in battery (batteries permanently drain over time, remeber when we could buy a new battery for a couple bucks and replace it?). Now all companys wire batteries on near every model.... Any desirable models at least. Then they send updates which ruin your battery.
    I mean what did some loose in that lawsuit? A bunch of people who wouldn't have replaced their phones anyways are offered a replacement for cheap? After the company who will gain all profits from repairs, are the company who caused the problem on purpose?
    That's not evem a loss, that's free advertising.... And to the most zombie like consumers (apple customers).

    Cant wait for their computers and tablets have a notch.
    What would be the big deal with a small forhead for all the cameras, speaker, and fancy sensors. Seems clear. Just like most things in smartphones, peaked around 2014, minimal changes since then. Any awsome games, which would be the most processing people do..... Could have been done on a 2014 flagship.
    The companies should just focus on only battery life. Everything else is great.
    We found 12 to 14 mp is just right (as most flagships went past 13 , now settle at 12). You need 21 or 42mp
    4k screens are dumb, 1080 looks just fine on phone size. Plus 1080 is a happy medium between visually appealing and battery sparing..... In fact good flagships allow you to turn it down to 1080....and some even come that way outta the box, even though they are 2k or 4k, lol. Not to mention you see something similar to 1080.
    So just leave everything hardware wise, except get rid of that STUPID NOTCH. Bring back the effin headphone jack, and bring the battery to week long use, that's the only tech left BATTERY LIFE!

And I was looking for features that LGV20 has (yes including the microSD and removable battery! I am that "old school ;P)... none seems to be usable in US including those marked as "global" or "world phone"... and apparently also the warranty would not be honored if buying one from China through the usual banggood and similar oddly named online stores.
