Honestly, I don't mind notches. This one's a little big, but I don't mind the general style at all. It feels clean to see the screen bleed over and around the invisible bevels and it doesn't get in the way as you don't really use the top of the screen at all, as it is usually devoted to time, notifications, battery percent, et cetera. Idk, I've never had a phone with a notch, but I have seen them in person a lot, so it might just come with owning it.

I don't get why they don't make the notifications white with a black background. It would hide the notch while keeping the screen real estate.

The notch was way better than the Pixel 4 design and the Pixel 4 series had a fingerprint sensor when the 4 apparently doesn't for some crazy reason

Wait, so it鈥檚 good that they included USB-C headphones, but he says it鈥檚 the opposite of what apples doing by removing the dongle from the iPhone XS. But doesn鈥檛 he know that Apple includes Lighting Headphones and they have been since the iPhone 7? I鈥檓 not trying to take away the fact that google actually included headphones for once but why is it cool to throw shade at Apple constantly?

The 3aXL may actually be better. It lacks wireless charging, Samsung's screen, water proofing and the notch but has better battery life. Sooo yeah like whatever man
