To notch or not to notch? That is the question.

I personally think the notch on phones like the iPhone X and LG G7 look kinda sexy, but all I see online are people panning the design. What do you think?

As long as it doesn't mess with what's on screen and is only used for notifications (like I believe the G7 will do) I don't see the issue.

Not a fan, and hate how Android manufacturers are rushing to copy the design.

They created it first with the Essential model in 2017.

Good point, I forgot about Essential. But it's still Apple that other manufacturers copy trend wise, especially since Essential was a failure.

I hate it, especially when watching video in landscape mode.

I hate it as well. If they wanted to have a separate section up there, it should just go all the way across.

Well, results here are just like I've seen on the rest of the net. Maybe the G7 will plummet in price by the fall when I'm ready to buy
