Wrap around or blend in? Here's how the iPhone 8 UI could accommodate the 'notch'

We've seen the alleged iPhone 8 design numerous times already from various sources, and they all infer to an  "all-screen" iPhone 8 front that is supposedly interrupted only by a notch at the top where the selfie and 3D face-mapping cameras, as well as the rest of the sensors would lie. If the best case maker renders of the iPhone 8 leaked so far are to be believed, Apple will be blending the color of the status bar with the color of the physical "notch," trying to ensure one uninterrupted visual experience. 

What if Apple went the other way, though, and didn't blend the hue in, bur rather wrapped the iOS 11 interface around the "notch," embracing the contrast in the process, and taking full advantage of the screen's actual area. Needless to say, the same goes for the rumored virtual home button and navigation area at the bottom. Well, all of these scenarios are depicted in the concept images above, so tell us which one do you like more.
