This is because phone makers are going towards fullscreen design, and notch is one way of going fullscreen.

The presence of the notch and other phone makers having the notch is not about copying to have the notch BUT rather to copy of the thinnest bezel technically possible and still maintain features like Face ID, front cam, etc.

The race to have the smallest bezel is the reason for the existence of the notch. I used the Oppo Find X for a short while as I liked the notchless display and the ultra thin bezel. The motorised camera was also an attraction for me but the sub-standard photo quality taken by the camera turned me off and I went back to using iPhone and Huawei phones living with the notch till someone invents a notchless display still able to have face id and other features.

I dunno abt how the others feel.. but I prefer a phone with slim top and bottom bezels for housing the speakers/sensors/cam than one with a notch to house those stuff.. the protrusion of the notch into the screen space is like a rude intrusion (into the screen space)..

I prefer bezels to notches as well. And I'd rather take bigger bezels if all sides are uniform, instead of a chin like Mix 2S.

have you seen google pixel 3?
as the youtube channel jerryrigeverything mention in the recent teardown "it has a notch large enough to land a plane"
if a notch is as large and wide as that, its as good as chopping 15% of the display off and looks disgusting which most user will "turn off" the notch anyway.
it probably a reason for what apple does for iphone but not all OEMs think that way. why? just look at other china generic android phone, they treat it as a feature rather than flaw.

precisely but sadly the market pickup the wrong thing that Apple throw out.
notch, headjackless, not replaceable battery rather than their seamless experience. WTF!

its not about what not to buy but the influence it has to the market, more phone with excellent specs but a notch destroy the overall designed.

If less people are buying, lower demand will lead to lower sales.

If lower sales, manufacturers will not continue to sell phones with notch in future.

I agree. I had to search beyond the usual brands just to find a decent spec model that doesn't come with a notch.

While we are it, I also propose "Stop removing 3.5 mm jack nonsense "

precisely and the trend have become such that you pay less for better designed.
like a budget phone would have no notch and with audio jack but flagship devices would be the opposite.

This is the moment of history where Reesey single-handedly ended the era of Android with a notch.
