  • - Hey guys, this is Austin.

  • All the way back in 2017, Essential introduced the notch.

  • With it, they were able to take the screen

  • and stretch it all the way to the edges,

  • essentially getting rid of the bezel as we know it,

  • unless you count the chin, but well.

  • Then we had the iPhone X, XS and XR,

  • all of which bring the notch to a much, much bigger size.

  • Now from there, pretty much

  • all of last year's full of phones,

  • they are absolutely loaded with notches.

  • You had big notches, small notches, teardrop notches,

  • I mean, they're everywhere.

  • But now we have the savior,

  • the hole-punch display with the Galaxy S10.

  • Here, instead of a notch, they have the front-facing camera

  • surrounded by the rest of the display.

  • However, is this really the future we want?

  • So even though it looks simple on the surface,

  • there's a lot going on to make a hole-punch display work.

  • First of all, you need to be able

  • to cutout the actual display itself, as opposed to a notch,

  • but importantly, it does limit a little bit

  • about what you can fit there.

  • For example, with the Galaxy S10 and the S10+,

  • you can get one or two front-facing cameras,

  • but besides that, things like the fingerprint sensor

  • need to be pushed to below the display

  • and some of the other things

  • like the ambient and the light sensors

  • are actually underneath the screen itself.

  • Now sure, there are definitely other approaches,

  • the Oppo Find X definitely comes to mind

  • as it brings an entirely mechanical operation

  • to the front-facing camera,

  • so you don't have any kind of notch,

  • but when you need the camera, it pops up,

  • however, as cool as this is,

  • I'm not totally convinced the mechanical approaches

  • are really going to make any big difference.

  • The humble notch actually still feels to me

  • like a better solution for most phones.

  • Now the actual looks of the hole-punch display

  • are definitely up to you.

  • Now personally, I do appreciate how small it is,

  • so you don't have any extra space being used,

  • but that being said, a notch at least is symmetrical,

  • well usually on top.

  • The thing with the hole-punch though

  • is that it's always off to the side corner,

  • which means that it can look a little bit odd,

  • specifically in video, where you have

  • essentially a bunch of dead pixels,

  • which can be kind of off to the side.

  • It's certainly not the end of the world

  • and I do think a lot of people

  • will like the look of the hole-punch,

  • but as far as I'm concerned,

  • you are giving up a lot by leaving the notch.

  • For example, take a look at the brand new LG G8,

  • it has a pretty hefty notch and for good reason,

  • they're packing a lot of stuff into that space.

  • In addition to the front-facing camera,

  • they also have a pair of depth sensors,

  • a transmitter, as well as a receiver.

  • This opens up quite a few possibilities.

  • Now first of all, you have much more secure Face ID

  • and I'll get into that in a second,

  • but you also have new technology,

  • which is Hand ID (laughs).

  • It's like the most LG thing ever, Hand ID,

  • no not Face ID, not Fingerprint ID,

  • you still have a fingerprint sensor, instead, what this does

  • is it uses that time-of-flight sensor

  • to actually scan your blood vessels in your hand.

  • All you do is put your hand over the phone,

  • it will scan it for the first time

  • and supposedly, this is an incredibly secure thing,

  • because I mean, you can spoof some things,

  • but you can't spoof an entire hand full of blood vessels.

  • I just find it hilarious that we've come this far,

  • that we've gone from Face ID, had Touch ID,

  • now we've got Vein ID (laughs).

  • Now I mean, to be fair,

  • you do still have the fingerprint sensor,

  • so if you don't wanna use this, you definitely don't have to

  • and it supports Face ID, but the thing is,

  • it's cool to have this stuff with the notch, right?

  • If you don't have the notch,

  • you can't fit all these extra sensors behind the display,

  • or at least, you can't yet.

  • Then there's facial recognition.

  • Now Apple claims this is the reason why

  • they're notch has to be so big and when you look at what all

  • they've crammed inside Face ID, well it kind of makes sense.

  • You've got the front-facing camera,

  • the light and proximity sensors, there's a flood camera

  • as well as a 3D dot projector

  • to get the actual 3D representation of your face,

  • there's also an IR camera

  • to take a look at all of this stuff, specifically at light,

  • or well, in the light, I guess you can use it at any time

  • and on top of that, there's also a front-firing speaker,

  • which doubles as your earpiece.

  • That is a lot of things for the little tiny notch.

  • (cellphone bangs to the floor)

  • That's fine.

  • Now the G8 doesn't have all of this stuff,

  • but you still do have the room for those extra sensors,

  • something that you can't do without a notch.

  • Now one of the cool parts about this

  • is that both of these systems enable

  • much, much more secure facial unlock.

  • Now some phones, including the Essential

  • and including a lot of phones, such as the Galaxy S10,

  • do have an RGB-based sensor,

  • but it's actually a lot easier to fool,

  • since it's essentially just a front-facing camera.

  • When you have all these extra sensors

  • and all these projectors, it does mean

  • that Face ID goes from being something that's kind of cool,

  • but not really all that useful,

  • if you care about security at least,

  • to something that you can use

  • absolutely everyday without worrying.

  • The notch makes it a lot easier to integrate these features

  • and that's something that you really can't do

  • with the hole-punch display, at least not yet.

  • Now we are seeing movement toward

  • getting more and more features underneath the screen.

  • Because the Galaxy S10 already has some sensors,

  • including the fingerprint sensor underneath,

  • I think it's only a matter of time

  • before you don't even need that hole-punch

  • and the camera can be directly underneath.

  • However, for right now,

  • when you go for the hole-punch display,

  • it means that you typically are giving up

  • some of the stuff like the secure face unlock.

  • Now there are advantages to the hole-punch display,

  • namely the fact

  • that it doesn't look quite so ugly as a notch,

  • however, there are definitely trade-offs

  • associated with going with that.

  • So I'm sure we will see a ton more of these hole-punches

  • throughout the year, but as far as I'm concerned,

  • the humble notch doesn't necessarily

  • have an expiration date just yet.

  • (light hip hop music)
