Yes or notch? Besides the pun, this question also includes the The most controversial element that has been added to smartphones in recent years: the beloved and hated notch. We have to make it clear that despite its recent popularity, this eyebrow first appeared on the Motorola Motofone F3 in 2006, the real first phone with a notch.
Although there are several phones that have avoided the notch through mechanical systems, this eyebrow has been a common element in cell phones from Xiaomi, Samsung, Huawei, Apple, and many other companies. There have been great designs, we can see it, but it is Time to look back to agree with the “haters” who collect the score of horror.
The ugliest hacks in recent Android history
The side notch of the ZTE Axon V.
“If you don’t take risks, you don’t win”You would think of ZTE for designing that notch like this … specifically in your ZTE Axon V. In order not to spoil the beautiful screen she had designed, the company thought about it Bet on a sidebrow to include the two front cameras.
The final design of the ZTE Axon V is retained something very strange that we hadn’t seen before. By including this side notch, one of the ends is wider, which limits the convenience of the terminal. Without a doubt, that eyebrow imagined by ZTE deserves its place in this anthology of horror.

In an attempt to hold the fingerprint reader so that the bottom frame is at its maximum, the company had to introduce that second notch that detracts from the visual aspect of the model.
It seems that Sharp has not regretted creating that double notch since then You have used it again with your Aquos R3. Despite the manufacturer’s insistence, we believe this design should be part of the anthology of horror of the notch in Android. One eyebrow is more than enough.
