It seems like you can't escape the notch. Apple made it popular, but now other companies are jumping on board. Cnet reported, "Asus last month announced the Zenfone 5, complete with, yes, a notch. Both Huaweiand LG are also rumored to have phones with notches on the way." Android P will incorporate the notch, but we don't quite know what "P" stands for. Marshmallow, Nougat, Oreo, then...what?
Samsung is one notable company that has not chosen to use the notch design, and they don't seem to be planning on adding it. In conclusion, if you passionately hate the notch you should probably stick with Samsung.
