And yet the design guidelines require you to. 

I get that Apple marketing wants to ensure that the notch is pronounced so it gets drilled into the user's memory, but there are far better ways to do that. For example that bar could just be a black notification strip in every app, but whenever a system event happens (you wake the screen, start the phone, jump to home, idle timer, whatever) a line matching the iPhone's body colour traces the outline of the screen for a moment.

   

If they do a little bit more than just spending five minutes fooling around in Inkscape they could come up with a far better solution.

Inkscape. I’m sure that was the missing ingredient.

I'll admit that could be worded better.
My logic is infallible. Resistance is futile.

I just need it to work. There’s nothing in the X that I have to have RIGHT NOW. So I’ll see those things in the next upgrade. Will it be an Xs?

It was also A LOT cheaper.

My 6s is only two years old. It's got plenty of life in it.

We both had 6 (non-s) and they were breaking. So... :boom:

I'll likely feel similarly in a year.

Also, TAM.

Big winner on the iPhone 8 is bluetooth. Massive improvement. I can actually put my phone in my pocket and still listen to music.

Big loser is Google Authenticator. Now I have to re-set up a bunch of services. Unless there's an export I'm missing to send my old authorizations to this new device (which, honestly, would kinda defeat the security aspect).
