Do you like the iPhone 10's notch?

Apparently the tenth iPhone came out almost a year ago and came with bat ears:



Apple obsessed over maximizing the screen, but instead of moving the selfish camera to the bottom, next to the home button, they increased the screen on the top left and top right and also got rid of the home button.*

I first heard about this last week, did not care enough to investigate, and eventually happened across an explanation.

If you know Linus of Linus Tech Tips, he said this of the notch: (Starting at 2:33)



So, it is fine if you only want to see 1 - 4 notifications, but do not mind having part of one side of your movie cut out.

*Instead of having a home button, you swipe up from the bottom, just like with my $35 RCA tablet that is absolute garbage.

Ha. My last iPhone was an iPhone 3 I had in 2012.
And I'm pretty sure that one will be my first and last iphone.

I've still got the Nokia candybar. I threw it in a drawer when they stopped rolling over prepaid minutes at the end of the year.

I'm surrounded by a humanity that took the bait and is now loosening it's ever-loving Mind.

Now the pictures are working.
Yeah that's dumb.
Did people actually stand in long lines for that?

Not a fan of iPhones period, and I've had the 3,4,5, and now 6s.

I'd rather see an entire image than have an incomplete but larger one. If I needed a bigger screen, I could simply hold the phone closer to my face.

Someone do the math on this. The extra 1/8" screen means you can hold the phone, what, an extra half inch further away to get the same perceived screen size? I have a feeling the Pythagorean theorem comes into play here.

Simplification is great for simple people. I happen to find buttons useful though. Beyond that, I like to send files via wifi or bluetooth sometimes. Heck, can't even send files via USB if they aren't photos. I've disliked Apple products since the Mac Classic II. Drag a floppy disk icon to trash to eject it? The iPod was terrible.

If the iPhone 10 doesn't have a home button, how does it do fingerprint recognition? BTW, why did they skip the iPhone 9?

I do not even know how big the iEx screen is. How big is the notch? People also love the 18:9 ratio, which gives them a taller screen, without making their phone wider. So, that is catching on, and so is the notch. Here are twenty Android phones with that abomination, although I believe that all of them are smaller. Two phones have "Teardrops" that only hide the selfish camera. Some even have a 19:9 display: https://www.smartprix.com/bytes/8-be...display-notch/

Where will it end?! Probably no more than halfway to the predicted i5:


Apple tried to integrate the fingerprint scanner into the screen, but could not make it work. There are phones with fingerprint sensors on the back, but many people like to have their phones flat on a desk or table, which does not work with face recognition, either, which was what Apple tried. However, that technology did not work any better than the screen-based fingerprint scanner did, so Apple was not able to sell as many phones as they wanted. https://www.fastcompany.com/40508767...-have-a-future

Android companies have since figured out how to make a fingerprint scanner work in the screen and one of those notch phones listed at SmartPrix has it.

One of those webpages said that the the 8 was only a 7s, so arguably they skipped the 7 and 8. Is this the same marketing gimmick as Win10? No.*



*This page says that they skipped nine because 10, which came out four years ago, is supposed to be the last one, but it will be updated indefinitely: https://www.lifewire.com/what-happen...dows-9-2626259

I'm so conflicted. The notch isn't any issue for me. But I've been an apple fan for over a decade, including iPhones.

The direction they're going, though, makes me wanna go android. Deleting headphone jacks? Cmon, man. And iOS has had a cheaper visual texture with every iteration. I've never been a google guy - I've used Yahoo! since before google was a gleam in anyone's eye, but at this point it's one or another, and Apple is earning a protest vote against itself.

Sounds like 'excess' to me. I forgot which Youtube video was on about how the patriarchy is keeping down people with small hands.

I've been with Apple since before 1984, but I'd never associate to a smart phone. I'm mentally unstable enough as it is, I don't need the anxiety and grief.
