Last I read, under-display cams have lower quality & results in bit blurry pics, so they are sorting those stuff out. Again I think it is possible only on OLEDs, not LCDs (not 100% sure), like in-display FP reader. Hopefully we will see some phones with it later this year or next year, the first phone might be from Oppo/Vivo.I think we have gone too far with these holepunch displays.
When we already have the tech for putting camera below display, I think these screen destroying displays should just become obsolete.
Yeah. My 3 year old white Lenovo Vibe K5 Note with a black border around the 16:9 display. It's like a mini LCD TV when it comes to videos & games.Completely agree. I would rather watch video on a 3 years old "supposedly ugly phone" with thick borders & no notch compared to latest slim design phone with notch/punch-hole.
No, in fact they made it possible to launch slimmer phones with more screen space in same price range as moving the camera to notch saves on space.Are these full body notch/holepunch displays along with high MP multi cameras unnecessarily adding the cost of a smartphone especially budget to mid range)?
I could never get used to notch. As for popup selfie camera I may be use it once a week & even in the worst case scenario of its mechanism failing I don't consider it a big con compared to full screen display.The notch or punch holes are barely noticeable after a while, you get used to it. I'd definitely choose punch hole design over bezels for the extra screen space, and ironically even over full screen displays, because then the selife camera would be in some moving mechanish which is i feel a risky proposition.
For people like you & me, I doubt the pop-up notch would fail even after 4-5 years. They claim to test it well, like 3-4 lakh cycles of operation. So it might not fail so easily even at hands of someone who uses selfie cam multiple times a day.I could never get used to notch.
