You got to admire the passion: fanboys that are able to find excuses when their precious bitchslaps them by giving them Apple like products :). Sealed batteries, no headphone jack, extension screens, deceptive advertising etc. Remember when they said Apple should pay for the trial that dumb person filed for the wallpaper of XS? Boy, some humans are so funny!

“iPhones don’t have notches, they have display extensions” is the most fanboy thing I’ve ever read. Do you always sh*t where you eat?

Yeah it astonishing how deluded this guy is. I'm glad he posted this nonsense of his that "iphones don't have notches". He used it against me once and acted all superior. He has obvious problems. He also made up another nonsens. According to him iPhone models like the iPhone x(so iphones with NOTCHES) don't have a status bar they have a status space. Now this is pure nonsens taking in consideration that Apple themselves on their developers site calls it a -Status Bar-.

(Insert Qwertyphone Past PA username member comments in comment section from myself.) No stereo speakers = failed No inscreen camera unlike visible punch hole camera = failed No emitting sound display like on Lg G8thinQ = failed No large battery on S10 like on S10+ = failed Only ultrasonic fps is a good thing on S10/S10+.

I always thought the face looked so off-balance with the chin but its actually only ever so slightly larger than the XS chin. It only looks bad because the side bezels are narrower. These phones are ridiculously compact considering their specs. Kudos Samsung

Exactly. Actually, the s10 has a thinner chin according to everythingapplepro compared to the XS series but the curved sides made it look big.

Let's have display blind-test between the XR and the S10e. Let's see which phone comes out on top. Cause these are the phones truly equal and targeting a similar set of consumers.

What difference does it make when you can disable the app?
