This is ridiculous, I'd rather take a notch than this. At least the notch you don't notice after a while but this is like a black dot on a white paper.

I don't like the rear camera's side placement, maybe because I'm used to samsung's center camera symmetry. S10 should not adopt that iphone camera look.

Agreed, the Mi Mix 3 is easily one of the best looking phones of the year.

Give it to Victor H. to make a review and he will give as maximum a 4 maybe 4.5. For him the camera in a hole will be a con.
