[Poll Results!] Would you like to see the iPhone X’s notch on the Galaxy S9?

Home / News / [Poll Results!] Would you like to see the iPhone X’s notch on the Galaxy S9?

There’s no denying the fact the Infinity Display that debuted on board the Galaxy S8 is fantastic, but ever since Apple took the wraps off the iPhone X, we’ve noticed a number of readers request that Samsung adopts a similar near-bezel-less notch design for the upcoming Galaxy S9, because they believe it’s more immersive.

Until we’ve seen the iPhone X for ourselves, we won’t be able to say whether that’s the case. What we can say, however, is that we’re huge fans of the design of the Galaxy S8, and there’s a good chance the notch will make it a little less user-friendly, as it eliminates the bezels used to hold the unit when watching videos.

We’d love to know whether you’d like to see the iPhone X’s notch on the Galaxy S9, so be sure to cast a vote in the poll below, then feel free to expand on your answer in the comments section. Come on, let’s get a conversation going! As usual, we’ll be responding to comments submitted over on Twitter.

Poll Results: The majority (76%) of voters think Samsung should retain the design of the Galaxy S8 for the Galaxy S9, while 9% are happy for it to introduce a variant with a notch as long as it releases a model with a standard Infinity Display. The same amount of people, however, would be happy with a notch-only version.

Would you like to see the iPhone X's notch on the Galaxy S9?

  • No, I’d prefer the Galaxy S8 design (76%, 3,323 Votes)
  • Sure, as long as Samsung makes a regular Infinity variant (9%, 413 Votes)
  • Yes, I love the design of the iPhone X (9%, 396 Votes)
  • I'm not really bothered by either (5%, 228 Votes)

Total Voters: 4,360

Why would they do this when they already have less bezel than the iPhone X. But I wouldn’t mind the bezels tighter or the camera a little pop up you press down on

If they do this they will literally lose me forever! This “notch” is absolutely F***ING hideous and ruins any continuity of/in the screen. It’s brutal and just plain UGLY! iPhone X is a HIDEOUS phone and even the iPhone 8 looks the same as always, big top and bottom bezel with big round ugly home button. I think my Note 4 still looks nicer than the new iPhone 8 and X. I love the look and feel of the Note 8 and the infinity display is great. Samsung did a great job this year and I thought I would hate… Read more »

iPhone X and Esential are the ugliest phones this year. I would never want to have such a thing on display. It’s terrible. Only a fuzzy phone might look like this.

Just give me a flat screen with minimal bezels without any of this crap. Shove your notches and your warped displays.

No thanks! Stick with thinning out the bezels by shrinking down the components to nano-size!

It is better for Samsung to redesign the stupid fingerprint position instead of creating a notch 😈😈

It’s not stupid for some of us. I like there. You also need to understand they couldn’t have placed it under the camera due to wireless charging and glass back..

Samsung’s infinity display is just perfect. A perfect ratio of top and bottom bezels; perfect. Let Apple do their own thing.

ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!! Samsung is a master on crafting beautiful, balanced, sleek screens. Will NEVER think of moving on such a distasteful abhorrence as the iPhoneX’s notch. No! No! No!
Ok, a FULL screen phone sounds a great idea for the S9 (and Note9 eventually) BUT without that stupid notch! I don’t know, maybe cuts ON the screen itself (can’t say it is probable or easy to do) or even a small Ink-screen part on the notch’s place? I dunno….. But GOD not that notch!!!!

I fully agree with that. The iPhone X is disgusting. I don’t understand how some people can’t see how ugly it is. The notch makes it less immersive and it doesn’t work.

If Samsung can make their flexible AMOLED displays happen they could in fact cut holes in the display for the sensors without affecting the display itself. I can sort of picture how that would pan out but I’m not 100% certain that would work either. It would look a billion times better, but not perfect itself either.

No way S8 Infinity display looks really good. Please make options in setting to automatically always crop videos in YouTube on S8.

They still need to improve on that part just like the essential phone crops the videos etc and gives us a lesser ratio on the screen to look at, its not worth it atleast for now

You are very negative on everything we write lately.
This isnt a stupid question as there are expected 50 million pre orders of the Iphone X.
So if 50 million people like that design it is logical to ask if Samsung users like that design too.

50 milions users paying 1389 euros for a stupid phone?
Damn good i am an idiot and poor still loving Samsung which may offer better specs with half price!
and saying 50 milions like that design is too far being a spoiled rich man believing whatever press writes….. very sad this at SamMobile really!!!!!

Where did you get the statistics from? An apple analyst said it and you believed that. Regardless of what iPhone X units Apple sells, the notch isn’t the reason. So don’t bring it together. Why did you ask Samsung to make their phone have loads of bezels when the previous iPhones sold buckloads?

Where are your statistics that show 50 million people like the notch? I don’t think the phone is even for sale yet. So to say 50 million people like it isn’t exactly true, is it? 50 million pre orders doesn’t mean 50 million like it. They just buy any old crap Apple throw at them, though this year may be different. I believe Apple will ditch the notch for the next iPhone X1 or whatever they call it. They are hearing the jokes and the negative press. Even Apple fans are not keen on it. I don’t think it will… Read more »

I think the Next iPads will have the Notch aswell. Why?! Becoz when apple does something they go full in. Like removing the headjack. Their whole app write guide is about embrasing the so called Notch This will not go away in 1 year. Let me state the 50 million differently, those people dont mind the Notch that much. So than our poll still is not stupid. And I think it will sell buckloads.. Why, becoz Apple. Their followers always overpay for everything and they do not mind that either. So they will not mind doing it for the X.… Read more »

Should you ask another question that is whether Samsung should change its smartwatch design to that weird rounded rectangle with a hardly operable crown because Apple Watch dominates in the US? Every experienced insider knows that marketing is contributing more than product itself for Apple.

Yes that’s marketing. And it’s because it’s apple as usual XD
