Apple will just start producing iTunes Originals and film and release them with the notch in mind.Rectangular video formats are so 2016.
imagine how much of an autistic spergout Jobs would have if he was still alive and saw this shit

>>62414949An iToddler has defended this.
cutouts are stupid and ugly, Essential at least leaves enough space to make it kind of "worth" it (maybe) but it's still ugly and stupid. Apple's is just retarded, flat out retarded. Also the "bezel-less" design still looks like it has pretty big bezels to me, like they went pretty halfway on that too and then smushed a big ugly notch into it as if that somehow makes it look like there is no bezel when it's actually 3/4s bezel
>>62414202>999 USD media consumption toyAmericans fill defend this
>>62414296i thought apple banned software bezels.
>>62414234Will probably depend on the video. Most movies nowadays are 16:9. That's why you don't see a lot of black bars on the bottom and top of the scree on new TVs like back in the days when the standard for movies was 16:9, but TVs were 4:3. Tarantino for example likes those black bars and since 16:9 will not give you those black bars on modern screens, he loves to film his movies in dumb aspect ratios. For such movies the phone will be just fine, since for once this movies won't have black bars.For standard 16:9 vids though, there are only 3 possibilities. They slightly stretch the image, they add black bars left and right, so it's still 16:9 and nothing of the pictures gets lost or they simply zoom in and cut off a lil bit on the bottom and the top like in OPs pic.

>>62414202They really fucked up with it. Then again, it's not like anyone unironically watches videos or movies on a phone ... right?
OP did you notice how the video is zoomed in? if you watch the video at 16:9 then you just get pillarboxing like you get with virtually every other phone.
>>62414202>watching a video on a phonelmaoing @ ur life
>>62419240From apple's tech demo.
>>62414949Not to condone what Essential did, but at the very least they left some space for the notification icons: it's hideous, but such design might come from the realization that the upper portion of the screen is occupied by the black notification bar, and usually notification don't get up to the middle of the screen, so placing the camera there didn't really remove any useful space. Apple just made that thing to claim their phone is bezelless, while they could have gone with a full bezel and it would have been much better from any point of view.
>>62419312i like it
>>62414949>admitting apple steals ideas
>>62419312it looks nice at first, but with a video specifically made for it.In reality you will get full picture on other phones and here the speaker will cover some on the left and it will be cut on down and upper parts. so basically nice gimmick for normies, they will buy it. They like to be fucked in the ass.
>>62414202FIXED. You phonefags are all the same.
>>62421355this, who the shit watches movies/tv shows on a phone?
>>62414202Most modern movies are already significantly butchered by cropping if they're views in 16:9 aspect ratio.
This looks fucking terrible. Embarrassing for a flagship product. No way would Jobs have allowed this.
Threadly reminder that you cannot properly enjoy kino on your phone
>>62421505This does look rushed. You're right, though. No way Jobs would have approved the iPhone X. Maybe they'll get it right with the X2, since Apple historically fubars the first generation everything.But seriously they're fucking Apple. How did they not get anyone to make smaller sensors for what they want to do? Those are absolutely fuckhuge sensors. Shit, I use sensors about that size in my single board projects. Don't tell me Apple couldn't get them made 1/20th of that size at the prices they're throwing around at their suppliers.The saving grace I see here is that the videos are all overflowing the sensor notch anyway. They're not making notch-hiding part of the OS, so it won't require any reworking of apps or content when they finally get rid of it entirely in the X2 or X3. They'll just finally be full screen again.
>>62417843No it won't you retard T. Note 8 owner.
>>62414296who the fuck browses anything in landscape modeI bet you keep your browser maximized at all times too
>>62419312yeah, it's zoomed in. they made a judgment call that showing a video with pillarboxing would look worse than showing a video that took up the entire frame.
Why the hell did they go with the notch thing? It looks jarringAnd no 120hz refresh rate unlike the new ipad, what the fuck. Apple could have lead a generation of 120hz screens
>>62421844they went with the notch because at the moment there doesn't seem to be a way to put cameras, speaker, etc... either behind the screen or in the bezel if they had made it a proper rectangle.go look at the Essential Phone or the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 for other examples of phones trying to satisfice with insufficient bezel space. this isn't some especially new idea.as for the refresh rate, yeah that was a huge fuckup on their part. it's probably why they didn't call it the iPhone pro — after refreshing the iPad pros with 120Hz and variable refresh rate and whatnot, calling this a pro and not including this feature would really raise questions about what's necessary for whatever apple thinks of as "pro".
>tfw you can enjoy iphone quality video right nowhttp://notchmode.com/ :^)
i'd rather have a full bezel than that fucking NOTCHthen they will come out with version that has a bezel and charge everyone a hundred bux more for the improved version
>>62421934i think it's more likely that they'll come up with a solution that involves shrinking the overall area needed to fit those components in, and then smoothing it out over the entire top of the device, but that's not really the hyperbolic anticipatory panic you're making up. so sure, they'll come back with a bezel and charge a hundred "bux" more.

While we're at it, remember that 16:9 is also plebshit.
>>62423404>>62423501What's the deal with iPhone having fuckhuge bezels? Even though they've previously claimed that upcoming telephone won't have bezels at all?

>>62414202i don't givea shit about watching videos on a smartphone. My problem is with landscape documents and websites. It is simply horrible.
>>62424696ThisNon-rectangle screens only work if literally everything is designed specifically for them. Documents are not and neither are movies, clips or photos taken with that phone
>>62423640>cropping all of the corners to be curved>black notch covering parts of the screenwtf why would they not just have very thin bezels which don't crop the screen and allow space for cameras and shit
