>Me: Guys, I literally dont understand why you HATE the notch/hole punch in the smartphones so much. It's LITERALLY not even that big of a deal, I've been using mine now for nearly a YEAR and I can tell you even though my cutout is HUGE I BARELY notice it so the teeny little hole in the new S20 is INSIGNIFICANT why are you guys bitching so much? It's not even super noticeable have you even USED a phone with this feature and just gotten USED to it like the REST of society? Just shut up, accept these as facts that smartphones are moving forward and let them design the best phones they can.Spoiler
>Also me: FAK, Y U NO HEDPHN JAKSpoiler

@TVwazhere Holy cow, they put a controllable stepper motor on that thing. Hopefully they performed endurance tests on that motor as I don't foresee it lasting long.
i don't moan or complain about it, but I don't understand why we complain so much about problems with other devices, bad designs, poor construction and then ignore the reality of this one. Take your pick on the item but as tech enthusiasts we HAVE our opinions and we nitpick on everything when we find a device. But most of the things we complain about are oversights, missing features, things company X didn't consider. The notch is advertised as a Positive feature, an addition. I don't understand how something that prevents easy use of basic screen functionality and has to be fixed with 3rd party software for some apps is considered a positive feature. I also don't understand why some argue to just roll over and accept it and get used to it. I know you're joking about it but some people really act like it's perfectly fine or even good. It's a bad design factually. It impedes proper use of the screen, adds extra complexity to fix visual issues caused by the screen no longer being a rectangle, and doesn't even look good (that's more opinion but still). I'm not mad at people for dealing with it, but why should I have to like a design flaw when everyone else gripes about every other design flaw there is? Why is this one so special that we have to all look the other way and pretend it's not stupid and (more importantly) unnecessary? It adds nothing good and causes basic functionality issues. Let's all say it together: The notch is bad. It's not evil, it's not the end of the world, but it is stupid. It is a bad design and there's no reason to WANT it. There's also no reason to start a riot over it. There's definitely no reason to put the camera on a cheap motorized pop stand....
