    I told someone in my class that they could potentially remove the notch for the next iPhones
    They said that it would look ugly...😤

    Everything Apple does lately is stupid and what hurts more is those companies cloning that stupidity.

    Actually, the Pixel 2XL started lagging after a few months of use. But I think it’s because of some software updates before Android Pie. I did a factory reset of my Pixel 2XL and it’s buttery smooth again. Today I updated to Android 10 and it got even smoother. @MKBHD please do a revisit of the apexes 2 XL and confirm this. Otherwise you are sending a very wrong message about the lag

    If they didn’t want the notch and always try to hide it then why did they copy Apple with making a notch? 😂

    I actually kinda like the notch. Not this notch specifically but other phones. Something about this notch just looks horrid.

    Storage doesn't matter to me because now that I'm more organised I only use 1 GB of it, instead of using all of it.

    Are you people really that stupid? This phone has front facing speakers. No shit it's going to have a notch & a chin. Front facing speakers are literally the greatest smartphone feature.

    Honestly the only good thing about this phone has everything to do with the Camera everything else is 2017 average performances. That noch and the fact that one speaker is louder the other gives me that OCD feeling. Im going with the note9 instead

    Use "Nacho Notch" app to hide the notch. It just make the status bar black, so you don't lose screen real estate and you can't see the notch.
