Hated one way or another: Notches & Co. | #PNWeekly 298

Notches are a fact of life these days in the flagship smartphone space and there’s very little refuge for Android freaks to find solace in unless they’re willing to make personal compromises. OnePlus was burned by its fandom while LG resorted to Reddit for its diplomacy.

Has the notch become too hated in the consumer discourse? We try and answer that question.

We also talk about a couple of other hated subjects in one way or another: Huawei and Apple have new things out and Facebook has everyone’s data. That and the March mailbag on this episode of the Pocektnow Weekly!

Watch the YouTube live broadcast from 3pm Eastern on March 30 or check out the high-quality audio version right here. You can shoot your listener emails to [email protected] for a shot at getting your question read aloud on the air next week!
