It is not different from what the best phones can do. It's similar to Apple taking an old feature and putting a spin on it to make it new.

I've been confused by the whole thing. The hole-punch camera has been around for a decade. Absolutely an Apple move.


Franklin Fulgencio gave Apple credit for its software.

There's nothing different from the implementation of the operating system. Apple makes its interface with the front camera more appealing.

It's a neat feature, but not useful on the phone.

It's a cool way to disguise the huge face unlock/selfie cam cut out, but it's not needed by the operating system.

A design flaw could make Dynamic more of a pain to use for some users.

" Considering how large phones are these days and that the thing has been to make everything more reachable I would hate having a feature placed at the most impossible point if the phone."

The large display of the iPhone 14 Pro Max could be related to this.

While developers are working on ways to bring this feature toAndroid, not many people think it's a feature that should besteal.
