The bangs on the iPhone X are the most controversial design decisions that Apple made when it came to designing the new flagship smartphone. Some people do not like the way that the groove "gobbles" the screen, while others like extra space.
Whether you like it or hate it, that gap will persist until Apple finds a better way to integrate the TrueDepth camera system into the iPhone's product line. Fortunately, though this groove does not look good at first, most people find it easy to get used to it.
In the following video, we will explore how this groove affects the daily usage of the iPhone X, how the application fits, and some of the ways to hide it. Let's take a look.
Before the release of iPhone X, the groove triggered a lot of discussion, most of them are negative, but because people are accustomed to Apple's design choices, so the dislike of it has gradually disappeared.
Apple's official policy is that developers and users should embrace this "bangs," because applications have come true about the design that surrounds it, blending into the background and becoming less conspicuous in everyday use. There are still some applications that have not yet been fitted to this groove, but as the optimization continues, we find that this groove is less troublesome.
The one exception may be landscape mode, as it becomes more apparent when browsing Safari, watching YouTube videos and playing games. However, Safari is getting better and better. Apple added a new Webkit API to iOS 11.2, allowing developers to design a better full-screen experience based on the groove. In the YouTub e application, If you double-click the video, it will expand to full-screen mode, making it easier to watch.
For those who absolutely hate the iPhone X notch, there are new apps (like Notcho) that can edit the wallpaper and add a black bar at the top to effectively hide the notches in the home screen and the lock screen. However, Notcho does not work within the app, so hiding the notch looks worse than accepting it.
