Mr. Phone picks: top Android phones with a notch in April 2018

Top Android phones with a notch

Apple released the iPhone X last year and created yet another trend. The trend of the notch. While people have mixed feelings about this alleged “waste of real estate” and “ugly sister of bezels”, the notch does serve two purposes. It houses the selfie snapper, which is a Holy Grail for us in this era. A truly bezel-less phone cannot easily house a front camera, let alone an LED flash to go with it. Apart from this, the much-hated notch helps in increasing the screen-to-body ratio of a smartphone. Also, the notch keeps your notifications and settings in check by not allowing them to take the complete top shelf, hence giving you more screen space. 

So now if you’re convinced of the importance of a notch, you need to know that it can be found on the latest Android phones. This clearly means that you will not have to spend an exorbitant amount over the iPhone X. We have made a list of Top Android phones with a notch. Here is a list of the Top Android phones with a notch in April 2018:
