    Yup. That notch was hideous. Stayed with my Pixel 2 XL. I'm not keeping my hopes up but if the Pixel 4 XL will be truly bezeless or close to it without the hideous notch..then sign me up.

    Technology evolves - so I wouldn’t be surprised if folks say glad they skipped Pixel 4 when they start to see Pixel 5

    Having moved to the 3 XL from the 2 XL, I have only one gripe.


    It's not the notch (simple enough to 'turn it off' in developer settings if you want, leaving the same size display as from the 2 XL but able to enjoy all of the other 3rd generation improvements).

    My gripe is with the issues that arise when the display runs to the edge at the top - and something that I only see getting worse should it go to a no-bezel display: accidental touches. Never once had the issue with the 2 XL, but with the 3 XL you now have 3 edges, therefore 3 orientations, whereon virtually any contact to the top brings down the notifications/quick settings menu. As we lose chins and bezels, we lose ways to practically hold the phone comfortably while intuitively and comfortably maintaining exact control over what input it senses.

    I tried what you're saying but can't see what the issue is. I don't have the 2XL anymore so I can't compare

    The only phones I have are the ones that run almost screen with a notch and never once had accidental touches.

    One phone that always gets accidental touches though is Samsung phones with their curved screen.

    Interesting thing with the 3 XL. If I hide the notch in developer settings, it's a non-issue - touching the now-black top of the display does nothing, evidently disabling that portion of the display from registering touches. But if I leave it in its default setting, touching the very top edge of the screen consistently at a minimum brings down a short white bar, and often the quick toggle menu.
