Unlike a lot of Android phone makers lately, Samsung decided against using an iPhone X-style notch on its new Galaxy S9.

In fact, the Galaxy S9 looks almost identical to the Galaxy S8, and it holds up remarkably well. It means the Galaxy S9 still has bezels above and below the display, but it still looks every bit as modern and sleek as the bezel-less iPhone X.

But what if it did have a notch, what would it look like? If you ask me, it would look pretty good. It could even be a precursor to Samsung's next Galaxy phone when Google adds official support for the notch in the next version of Android - Android P.

Samsung makes unbeatable smartphone displays, so a notched Galaxy S9 with an edge-to-edge screen would look pretty sleek.

The Galaxy S9's curved-edge design would make the notched Galaxy S9 design appear as if it had even narrower bezels than the iPhone X.

I don't mind the notch on the iPhone X, and I wouldn't mind it on the Galaxy S9.

Still, the notch is a compromise in design, as the sensor, earpiece, and front facing camera wouldn't work with a display on top of them.

But a bezel-less design would give you more screen while keeping the Galaxy S9's original size. It's up to you whether you like it or not.
