A matter of form vs. function.
Samsung’s been dabbling with curved displays for quite a few years now, but since the launch of the Galaxy S8 series last year, the company’s gone all in on these curves for its flagship phones. The Note 8 and S9 series that followed the S8 also came equipped with curved sides, and with the Note 9 on the horizon, people are debating whether or not this is a trend that should stick around.

Now that we can finally get good screen protection (spelled OTAO, Zagg, White Dome and others) I have absolutely no problem with the curves. That said, the curved screens do absolutely nothing for me either. Seems like a gimmick but one person’s gimmick is another’s favorite feature.
With that said, we’d like to know where you stand – Do you want a flat or curved screen on the Galaxy Note 9?
