Let’s get one thing out of the way first, there’s a lot to love about the iPhone X and this is not an article written to thrash it by any means. Nevertheless, it is a practical look at what can only be described as the “ears” of the iPhone X! Similar to the Essential Phone by Andy Ruben, but much wider, there’s a significant gap at the top of the smartphone which Apple has utilized to incorporate the front camera and other sensors onto the front. As you can see from the image on top, this is quite a strange decision, given that it means this is not exactly a 5.8-inch display in effect.
Videos, games and other content will either be missing chunks from them or they will only utilize the rectangular section of the screen, making it much smaller than what you are paying for. Then there are other problems like you cannot see the scroll bar while scrolling a web page and white bars on the “notches” or “ears” in landscape mode. I am pretty confident that all this won’t hurt sales though, since you know, it’s Apple!
