Kudos for you mate.

Samsung is doing things wrong on so many levels latley. Almoust as if they try to ruin their company image on purpose. 4 rear cameras is almoust satirical, now hole on display? And their design has also been going down the toilet latley. Prices are high and specs are - low...
They ruin their flagships aswell - Bixby is here to confirm you that.
Samsung would continue to lead the market if it wasn't for those mistakes!

To make it worse they will charge you double for that gimmick that you don't need. Because 1 - it costs them to make it, 2 - they invested into developing it.

Notch is way better solution than actual hole in your display, not to mention that they have another not needed hole - a headphone jack.

Anonymous, 27 Oct 2018You talk complete tripe mate, sorry, and all of these 'facts' ar... moreMan i am typing so fast that some mistakes are affordable.
As long as you can read it i dont care and you shouldnt.
What i said is real i can confirms that and i can show you as many proofs to that as you want would like or need.
All the evidence can be easily searched on google.
Rest is as i said.
The way you dont think so is not my problem because i can prove i am right but you cant prove you are right.
By the way have a nice day and thanks for your opinion.

Anonymous, 26 Oct 2018a) notch is a feature? PLEASE demonstrate HOW? b) a thumb size... moreMan oh dear.
1. i am not the apple fan
2. Thumb sized notch is better tha hole in display i can confirm it.
3. Samsung innovation kills. (For example bended / curved screens are very resistant to proper screen protector. Noobne would comply unless it putting like 10+ a day which i do in my shop and its a dissaster)
4. In case of Samsung theyy always thinking only on theoretical basis point 3 described. Having something to call an innovation and finding its not working as it should is really bad. Try to get a cover when you ahve your screen protector. It will push your screen protector of from your phone (Most covers, cases and book cases)
5. Samsung is trying to make a full screen being a fingerprint reader. My phone can be locked and unlocked by pressing the finger print reader. If a whole screen would work like this it will be impossible to work with your phone because you will lock your screen durring typping or so.
6. Samsung so called innovation cost plenty of money which is transfered into cost of their products. I wouldnt mind if this innovation will be working and basic customers would have a benefits from that. But as i said above Samsung engiuneers and researchers works and thinks only on theioretical basis. In real live 99% of their research could be used for that 1% which actualy works.

i don't know if this is the best way to do it but it's a good idea. Samsung has to do something new in order to go against the notch. Since they have been making fun of it the whole time. Also, the china phones are doing the new slider... Thank god they have something to retaliate or else they will go extinct.

CptPower, 26 Oct 2018Rather notch than a hole. Samsung innovation kills the future. a) notch is a feature? PLEASE demonstrate HOW?
b) a thumb size notch is better than a tiny hole in display?
c) have you taken your anti-apple-fan-boying pills lately?

Rather notch than a hole.
Samsung innovation kills the future.

Tommy Chhangte, 26 Oct 2018There are always some people who do not get satisfaction at all ... moreI completely agree with each and every point. In terms of display Samsung has always been the best and when they have decided for something like this, they will definitely nail it!

Holy shit, 25 Oct 2018You're right and it's even scarier than a notch if we can't hide it.Nonsense. How is that "even scarier"?? Your front cameras had alwaayyysss been there since you first bought your smartphone! Since with those thick bezels, since the notches of varying sizes, it's always been there. Unless you bought Vivo Nex or Oppo Find X.

So if you are that fearful, here's what you can do. Either:
1. Throw away your phone right now. Throw. It. Away.
2. Buy Nokia 1100.

Done. You are safe.

Anonymous, 25 Oct 2018This is probably even worse than the notch, because you probably... moreThere are always some people who do not get satisfaction at all with nothing in this world. Among them is you.

Why don't you start a company and innovate on how to get rid of all things interrupting a phone screen from becoming full screen huh? How about that?

Notch - you complain
Motorized camera - you complain
And now small holes - again you complain!

And by the way, hold your judgement ffs until the device is officially and completely announced - by then the tech would've been more developed - there may even be a way to "hide" that hole and "show" it when used by becoming transparent/colourless/shut down and turned on back again.

s-pen pusher, 25 Oct 2018wow! innovative! How come nobody thought of this before? Nah! It... moreBut not upto the amount of interrupted content than those of Apple and followers' ugly notches *wink* Just sayin. Apple apparently is cringing hahaha

This is triggering me so much. Aesthetically and UI-wise it breaks the design, there's no flow. Worse than notch.

This screen is just going to be awesome, This is a technology that we should pay unlike apple where it just bullies their customers and offers the same old creepy tech.
