    I'm over the drama. Don't care about the notch. It's a notch or a bezel, pick your poison.

    I hate it. Hate it that this is becoming a trend and a thing but in the case of LG, if they improve the front facing camera and retain all the other unique features LG phones have, then I'll take it.

    I rather have notch than curve screen. No glass screen protector is a pain.

    A bezel doesn't cover up any information on the screen, while the notch does (and also prevents you from using the entire screen for full screen apps).

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with having bezels around the screen. Unnecessarily large bezels are a problem, but only a problem that few phones suffer from (mainly Apple and Sony phones or certain Pixel phones).

    Yep. But people are going to complain either way and I just don't care much.

    Absent the notch, nobody has anything to complain about.

    Eh, if they add some sort of software bezel and reserve it for system icons, I can live with it.

    I think the big take away on this notch trend that irritates me the most is that the other guys aren't incorporating special facial recognition sensors and things like that. They seem to just be an aesthetic rendition of a very functional aspect of Apple's iPhone X. Or have I just missed other OEMs doing facial recognition sensors?

    The notch has nothing to do with special sensors. Apple just made a notch so it can tout a high screen to body ratio. You can have special sensors without notching. There is no functional aspect in its rendition in the iPhone X. It could be achieved with a normal bezel, just like Samsung's iris scanners.
    The Essential was the first notched phone and it didn't have special sensors on the notch.

    We'll true but they do at least have them there is what I'm saying. Not that it was necessary.

    And it's the same for other manufacturers. The main point of the notch is to get the body ratio. Plus Android P will be notch compatible, so you can say it's future proofing for the interface.

    The only thing which will annoy me about the notch is when it is present alongside a chin.

    It just breaks the symmetry

    I think I saw somewhere that LG was going to make it optional, i. e. as part of the screen or just black with the time/notifications. I could go for that. Now if it's ALWAYS part of the screen and whatever video I watch, picture I take, etc. has a notch cut out of it? BURN IT WITH FIRE!!

    That would be fine, so at least you have a choice of a software bezel that is able to show time and notification icons while leaving the screen free for content or just showing the notch.

    It's imperfect but it's a solid workaround

    Blahhh bezel all the way for me! While I admit that Essential did the notch well, however. The P20 line also looks pretty good. But this notch... Nope.

    However, I'm still interested in seeing how the LG G series does this year!

    Yeah. I actually like the essential phone. Best built phone out imo. I live the feel and materials. And now with 8.1 a lot of tvr bugs are fixed. Can't wait to see what the next essential is and the pixel 3. Both are on my list this year.

    Oh, absolutely! I'm keeping an eye out for the next Essential Phone! It's unfortunate because even though Essential was announced and released prior to the iPhone X, people will still associate notches with the iPhone X; and I think that's why other manufacturers want to copy the notch.

    Other people also associate the loss of the headphone jack to the iPhone despite LeEco and Moto coming out first. But that just shows how much clout Apple has.

    Absolutely. Apple will always be the "first to do it" even when it's not.

    The same reasons why they went with an all glass body and curved display are the same reasons why they went with the notch. This notch doesn't look that bad though the way they did it, seems minimal and looks alright. I could see why they did it, 1: for being part of the cool crowd and 2: they really minimized the bezels to the max with this one so even putting the camera on the bottom wouldn't work. BTW they can't put it on the bottom center because of the charging port and possibly the headphone jack, anywhere else the person's hand will cover the camera. OH YEAH and I'm glad LG is going back to LCD.. the AMOLED screen was disappointing plus the fear of screen burn in.
