The Pocophone launcher has an app drawer.

Glad it has that massive hideous notch or Id be regretting my recent purchase of the Mi Max 3 looking at those specs, Xiaomi are going to achieve ridiculous market share soon.

Chips are made by two companies that are a bit feud-y or were. They may not be willing to cough up the kinda prices required for the near closed ecosystem.

I could barely contain my disgust at the notch on the iPhone X when it launched. But the world has taken leave of its senses and it's practically the new normal in the space of a year.

Worse again, over the last couple of months I've found myself thinking 'it's alright, I suppose'... Although, the absolute state of the renders I've seen for the Pixel 3XL.

I'd rather a notch an inch deep than a phone with a Chinese skin that'll never see an update.

The amount of custom roms for this thing will be huge if its as good as it sounds, you'll probably be able to get the newest stock Android for years to come.

Plus Xiaomi are pretty good at keeping most of their handsets updated, as I understand it.

What's your current handset? Screen to body ratios have come on a lot.

Most keyboard apps have a one-handed mode feature these days, might help.

I use Gboard on a Oneplus 5, and I haven't needed it so far (I have big auld paws!), but that feature once activated makes the keyboard look a bit small for my talons.

You mightn't actually find much difference between the V20 and the Poco in your hand - https://www.phonearena.com/phones/LG...1/phones/10975

It could be weeks before vendors actually get their hands on it though, then it will probably start selling out.
