One of the problems with online humanity is that everyone is an expert and everyone has an opinion. Wil Gomez writing on Mac360 about iPhone X’s Notch:
Easy. Notch is visible. Notch is big. Notch is a distraction. Like other design and manufacturing choices based upon available technology, the issue with Notch will go away. Notch is a beautifully ugly design. It’s beautiful because it works magic. It’s a visual cue so you know what to look at when you raise to unlock iPhone X. Remember, beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Next year no one will remember the ugly Notch. As with the older and thicker bezels, chin and forehead, we will look past the Notch and see the beauty of how it is used and what it does.
Most of us won’t pay attention.
