Apple is really bad at design(theoutline.com)

    I find arguments like this fall apart when I'm walking around seeing thousands of people happily using all this "badly designed" stuff without much issue.

    Sure the iPhone X isn't out yet, but do you really think THIS time will be the one where the predictions of Apple's design and innovation failures come true? I doubt it.

    I mean is it really that big of a difference to have the notch versus having a black bar fully across the top? REALLY? Sure the white bars on websites are ugly, but I bet before the year is over the vast majority have added the background color attribute that makes it look better.

    I'm getting tired of this outrage at Apple that never seems to manifest functionally.

      If you take a step back and look at the average user and basic expectations of a smartphone, then yes that notch or Apple's other screw ups don't make much of a difference, you can still use the device just fine right? And if that is the lens through which you analyse things, you will go and buy a OnePlus for half the price or a Motorola for 1/3 of the price. They do the job just fine also right?

      This argument is about demanding more out of premium, outrageously expensive devices.

      I for one sure love carrying two pairs of headphones around every day because the same pair no longer functions in my Apple Laptop and my Apple Phone. But hey! at least the industrial design team at Apple can gush over the symmetry of the bottom of the device with it's fake speaker holes on one side.
