iPhone X is the best smartphone Apple ever made. It could be the best smartphone released in 2017. Like its rivals and every iPhone that came before it, however, it’s imperfect. As much as I love using mine, certain things drive me crazy almost every day — and no, the “notch” isn’t one of them.
The perfect way to show off the notch on your iPhone X
I criticized the design of Apple's new display a number of times ahead of the iPhone X's release last month. In the wave of leaks that swept over the web ahead of the phone's unveiling in September, the "notch" appeared to mar an otherwise sleek design. Even when Apple announced the phone and showed it off in photos and videos, I still wasn't sold. Once I got the phone in my hands, however, I sang a different tune and ate crow almost immediately. The iPhone X's notch is awesome. It's a fantastic design feature.
