    The question that the OP posed was what problem I see happening. The notch itself not being able to be worked around whether a dev can or can’t is a problem in itself which in turn translates to a problem with the phone, in my opinion.
    If you choose to see it that way. The notch will not be as big an issue as everyone makes it out to be though. I hardly notice it at all in any video I’ve seen with it and I’m sure I’ll notice it less as I use the phone. Unless a developer draws special attention to it.

    That’s for sure!
    I do hope there aren’t too many problems with the X.
    I'm hoping to get one by Christmas, but I'm thinking I'll be more likely to get one in January or February 2018.

    Yeah apparently my problem is the Apple store being able to process my order. Set my alarm for nothing.

    For devs to "pretend" it's not there their apps are going to have to operate just like they would on an iPhone without the notch. This would mean there is a chance that portions of videos will but cut out because of the notch. There is no way anyone will "not notice" a piece of video being removed because the developer was forced to pretend the notch didn't exist.

    Only if you go full screen though. And yes, video will be most noticeable. I should have mine next week and I’ll let you know if anything other than video gets interrupted by the notch and how annoying video is with the notch. I don’t think it’s going to be an issue at all.

    Yeah it happened to me too.
    I’m not sure why the Apple Store App couldn’t process my order when I click on ‘Place Order’

    It's not a choice on my part. It's what my initial reaction is to it aesthetically. Therefore, it's a problem, in my opinion.

    And you're right, it won't be as big as an issue to many people, let alone "everyone". I happen to think that there is a chance that it will though. That's all I'm saying.

    Yea I got my pre order submitted early and hopefully Verizon sticks to their current estimate of 11/3 delivery. I'm hoping it's not nearly as annoying as it could potentially be if the apps are supposed to pretend it's not there. Seems like that means things are going to be getting cut off when viewing full screen. For example, on my S8 there are games I can play full screen with no distractions. If, for example, my NBA 2K app is to pretend the notch isn't there, that's gonna be pretty annoying while playing lol. Guess we will see how apps handle it next week. I'm looking forward to it. I've got enough faith in Apple that they aren't going to introduce something like this and completely ruin the user experience.

    According to the guidelines on developer.apple.com the UIKit has templates for the X and apps are supposed to conform to the curves of the OLED screen. So the apps should curve around the notch. Other than that, yes it’s pretend it’s not there. So it really it should only be potentially bothersome with full screen video.

    Interesting. I look forward to seeing the implementation. Fingers crossed.

    I see one problem being many users will be disappointed with the screen size. Many believe it's a huge screen in a small phone. And that's just not so.

    But it’s still larger than the 8 and only barely smaller than the 8 Plus, just a different aspect ratio.

    It's basically the same width as the 4.7" model. Both are 375 points across. The X is just taller. That 5.8" diagonal measurement is very steep. The 5.5" is a little shorter, but wider.

    Yes but it’s only a fraction of a percent smaller than the Plus screen still.

    It'll feel more like the 8 than the 8 Plus in your hand.

    That’s what I’m going to love about it. I’ll even deal with the longer aspect ratio for it.

    Many will like it, especially those accustomed to the 4.7". I'm just saying there will be those whose expectations of a huge screen will be disappointed. According to this, the X actually has a smaller screen size than the 5.5" model. It went over my head when it got down to the math part.

    Some may indeed be a little disappointed, but they’ll quickly adjust to it.

    Most probably will. I'm curious if the returns or exchanges will be more than the norm. One person already was disappointed in the size when he received his protective screen for his X. Most of us in the forums have a good idea what it will be. But out in the wild, many have no clue.
