Personally I think having capacitative buttons at the bottom of the screen (all Android phones) is a bigger problem than a notch. I'm pleased to see that Apple is moving towards a true swipe interface and disappointed that Google isn't following suit.
However, I still don't really like the notch, I agree with you.

Too late! :D
i disagree with madbilly, i really enjoy phisical buttons, the perfect combo was set years ago by pdas, a home button at the center, a back and menu at its side, and answer and drop at the sides of those, with option to reporgram all, about the notch, i also dislike it, bezels exist for two reasons, to have something to grab, and to protect the phone
I have concerns with minimal bezels (which usually includes "notch" phones) when the only repair access to the phone internals is by ungluing a glued in screen. The Gorilla Glass is pretty forgiving, but the digitizer screen beneath it is fragile. It would seem that the bezel would provide a little working room for the repair technician ungluing the screen. Some other phone manufacturers glue the screen to a tray, and then the tray is screwed and snapped into the chassis, so the limited bezel doesn't have the same issue as a glued to chassis screen. This is just my understanding of the situation, I'm not a repair technician.
Just to confirm - I like physical buttons, I just don't like capacitative ones. The best thing about T9 form factor phones is the physical call and hang up buttons and the fact that I can write faster and more accurately than with a swipe interface.
