It's tucked up, why do fucking manufacturers make a camera on the side of the phone. It should be in the center all the time. I rather have a camera in the middle well on the front as in the back. Or no camera at all.

Nahhh fam not feeling it. Maybe we will have cameras under the display in the future but until then I prefer slim bezels (no notch/holepunch) or maybe a motorized/pop-up/flip camera. I almost feel like the hole punch is even more distracting than some notches. Is that just me?

Hole punch or notch are stupid hacks just so phone manufacturers can claim the screen display larger than what it actually is - surprised noone called that out.

I'm rocking the v20 but black back. The hole punch is a winner for me.

I'm honestly to happy with my Honor View 20, like, the cutout wasnt a selling point like the camera or the cpu, but boy this phone looks good.

I purchased the regular Honor 20 a few days ago and I have to say it's an amazing phone for the price. £399 here in the UK. It feels like a much more expensive phone both hardware and software wise. It's fast, the battery life is great, the UI looks very neat and tidy. I chose this phone because I'm waiting for the iPhone 11 with 5G when I upgrade in January. Because I'll only be keeping whichever phone I purchased for 6-7 months I didn't want to spend too much money and for £399 this phone is an absolute bargain in my opinion. Same CPU as the P30 PRO, 6GB of RAM, a very decent camera, the latest version of Android including the latest security patches. It's just an all around bargain in my opinion. I do really like the look of the hole punch display but functionally I think I would have preferred a notch housing the front camera. I rarely use the front camera however so looks wise, yeah the hole punch display looks great. I do hope everything turns out ok with the Hauwei/Google issues because they make great phones at great prices. I'll be keeping my Honor 20 when I get my iPhone 11. The UI on the Honor 20 is great. It has an iOS ish touch of polish to it whilst still fully integrating Google's service's such as Discover and assistant. Unlike Samsung with Bixby. Why Samsung didn't just go with Google assistant is beyond me. Sorry for going off topic. And thanks for the video.

Interesting how they know that they need to put that in the center and they won't do it until a future release. Oh well, that's how they keep being able to make changes, I guess.

Hello, can you also see on your HonorV20 shadowy thing surrounding hole punch? On white background you can also see it, it's like edges are gray and inside is white, but it's surrounding front camera and it's visible on the top and on the sides?

We don't need notch, hole punch is great. Otherwise, companies should stick with the design just like S8/S9 etc.

I am not good with all this terminology jargon in the techy lingo but .....I still don't know what the hell is Hole-Punch in reference to. I'm thinking it's the dot on the corner? and ...so ?? is the dot to adjust screen size display?

Its referring to the dot on the screen in the top left corner which is the front camera on the phone.

Why can’t they just put a small camera in the screen Even the 2007 spypen is better than the 2017/8 notch

Oh the madness of bezel less display... You know that when you use almost any app (including videos and games), the top display will need to be cropped to eliminate the disturbing black hole, right. The only thing you can enjoy the oh so beautiful and large display is the wallpaper at the home screen. How is that "bigger screen in a smaller body"? And it wastes more juice. And it cost more to build, and more expensive to buy. This craze needs to stop someday.

04:33 they can solve this by moving the time and the notifications to the middle. It would be VERY wrong to move the hole to the middle, very bad idea! It would be very distracting.

Honor: We have the future design concept for Smartphones Samsung: We will catch up soon Apple: No Headphone jack! People: Wooooahh Apple is so innovative......
Apple is rotten.
Bad engineering by Samsung. The hole punch should have a sliding fully functional circular screen underneath that covers the camera while watching photos and videos. In other words, the hole punch should not be visible all the time.
Hole punch is a big distraction, unless they found a way to cover it up while watching photos and videos.

Best implementation of an infinity screen looks great, better than any stupid notch. I can't wait for every manufacturer start working on this including Google. That is my opinion though.

this notch is the stupid madness..

The selfie camera is only good for two things --- selfies and live streams. The fact that they can't find a solution to the problem is funny because the technology exists to invent an OLED display that can literally show the entire screen with no hole punch or notch ... by simply hiding the camera behind the glass and then turning off the pixels at the site of the camera to allow light to enter the camera ... I mean, is it that hard? I call it lazyness
i cannot stop watching the hole...

The whole punch is a lot better than ugly notch Imo Doesn't interrupt or take your attention away much

I never use the front facing camera. Do people use it? I mean. Sure you can facetime with it. I hate when someone facetimes me. I don't take selfies. They're always terrible.

Don’t understand the point of having the hole punch instead of a notch
