The thing with the notch and not noticing it when using it is like having a crack in the phone

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

Watching on a pixel 3 XL. Before you ask, the notch isn't that big irl.

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.

This could be the best phone in the entire world but I just couldn’t because of that damn notch. It just looks so bad.

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

The reason I brought the pixel 3 over the 3XL... THAT F**KING NOTCH!! I watch videos all the time on my phone, why should I have to change the screen option to downsize to the same size of the normal pixel 3 screens??.. no thanks.

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.
