Poll results: turns out a hole-in-the-display is not that bad...
by Preslav Kateliev / Dec 11, 2018, 9:34 AM
Technological achievement? Sure! A bit weird to look at? Well... possibly.
We stared at the few hands-on photos we have access to and it's definitely something different. We thought we'd ask you whether you like it or hate it. Turns out, almost half of the voters feel like they could get used to it, and about a third of all users say they actually liked it! The sentiment is mirrored across our social media posts — while it's got its fair share of opponents, the Infinity-O is getting a warm reception for now.
So, how do you find that Infinity-O display?
Nope, nope, nope... I'd rather have two Pixel 3 XL notches on my screen!
It's... different... I can get used to that, I guess
Oh, I like that!

Once the technology drops for both under screen cameras and sensors that don't require blank space, then we will have something.

I don't understand if PA is actually trying to gather objective emperical data or they are just going for clickbait. You put up a poll with so many comments complaining about the poor options and what they will rather have, and then you "post your results" without any mention of said comments?

If this is next year's solution to near bezel less design, then I'm skipping it. This is at best a temporary solution that will be rid of in a year's time just like the notch craze. Trust me. U buy one of these phones and ur gonna look back... 'Gawd damn... I bought one of these phones? Wtf was I thinking?!' lmao.

Who cares. Hole; notch; bezels....sorry but today's devises don't really do much more than yesterdays. To me, yesterdays design with bezels, if you are like many people and keep your phone in a case, work much better than the large screens with little or no bezels - if you need to swipe from the bottom top or sides (who would ever have to do that.....) with a protective case, it's difficult to get your thumb on the edge.

They need to find a way to make it a full display and then shut off the hole area when the front facing camera is needed. As for the proximity sensors, maybe they can make them even smaller and place them elsewhere or be innovative in design and placement.

The hole is beyond stupid. I have a hard time believing anyone at Samsung would approve this! IF you're going to have this ridiculous dead spot, at least center it. Almost every app has a navigation key or function tucked in the upper right or left corner. Are you really going to limit screen space to BELOW that hole? How is that better than a couple mm bezel? Or a small notch for that matter?!... Look at the picture. Small bezel up top but a huge waste of space for this gallery app. Actual app starts WAY down the screen below the hole!
