NichtsGemacht, 10 Aug 2017can you tell us why? because I don't get itThere's nothing to get you either like it or you don't, personally the cutout doesn't bother me and I think most people will get used to it as other companies start doing the same thing too for better or worse.

"Appearance is a subjective matter, but it looks rather unpleasant and breaks the whole full-screen experience." enough said. The stupidity in that line from the article is so great it even escaped the author - he first said that the appearance is a subjective matter, but then immediately say the phone looks unpleasant and breaks screen experience, and he does this without assuming his statement by saying "for me", no, he say like its an general and universal truth, meaning for everybody.

But instead of that,their work is (supposedly) to tell the news and facts.... something that they failed big time in this article!
Two days and the "white elephant in the room" aka 4k screen still standing,or maybe they knew something that no other in the world knows.

P.S.once upon a time,this was a reputable site... sigh

S8 and G6 looks much better than this ...

Anonymous, 09 Aug 2017So this shows sharp supplies the screen for essential phone... moreexactly what I was wondering. I'd be shocked if that delivered consistently smooth performance but then its worth remembering the android implementation of 4K where its not active in menus, general apps, home screens etc but instead is active in the camera app,gallery and video playback apps. I'm not sure about games but if they run at around 1080p then maybe this works as a setup, 4K only when required

the bonus is that 1080p looks nicer on a 4K display because you have multiple physical pixels representing a rendered/software pixel rather than a single pixel made up of a subpixel array of colours that may look weird even though the user can't tell why it is uncomfortable to stare at
