Most services that are available on Google's app store are also present on Apple's App Store. That especially holds true if you don't use Google services either.

The reason notch doesn't work on any Android is the way they work. And the fact they don't use advanced sensors for anything like iPhones do for FaceID. There was zero point in using notch on Android phones for what? Selfie cam, proximity sensor and ear piece? Teardrop made the most sense there coz they only really had selfie cam there and because of how many notification icons Android phones have that just aren't present on iOS.

Worst design ever I mean the notch. All stupid’s got influenced and showed stupid designs in our faces. I would prefer pixel 4 design over notched iPhone even today.

It was not the first and the only reason why they're 'influential' is because Apple has their large base and not because they're products are worthy of people's money.

Should i get the Iphone 13 Pro or another android phone? I used an IPhone X since 2017 and it was an OK Phone.

iPhone x was worst iphone ever. Most Bugged iphone i ever purchased.

As far as I know, the only brand who's copies it isn't even running Google's Android, so how influential is it?
