Dynamic Island on iPhone 14 brings more trouble than notches

While Android competitors are looking for ways to shrink the notch on the screen as much as possible, even resorting to different technologies to make it disappear, Apple has chosen a different approach. They added more features to it, turned it into something more interesting and named it “Dynamic Island”.
But in the eyes of XDA-developers writer Karthik Iyer, despite being hailed by many as an interesting mix of design and engineering, Dynamic Island on iPhone 14 brings more trouble than notches. more topic than the usual “rabbit ears”. Let chusa.info analyze the details below!

Takes up more vertical space

One of the big problems with Dynamic Island compared to today’s notch design is that it takes up more space on the screen vertically. Although the Dynamic Island area is smaller than the notch, its position is lower than the notch, making the top of the screen vertically – where the iPhone’s battery and network signal icons are located – wider than before and occupy a larger proportion.

This also means that users will take up more space when surfing the web, reading documents, accessing social networks and more. Users will now have to trade off one more space on the screen for the new Dynamic Island feature. For many people, the trade-off of 1mm of screen length for an interactive UI interface is completely worth it, but for Iyer, it is really an annoying and distracting thing.

Fingerprints all around the front camera

Not only does it take up more extra screen space than the notch, Dynamic Island can also come with another annoyance. As continuous animations surround the front camera and stimulate you to interact with them, there’s a good chance your finger won’t stop touching them – as well as the selfie camera and the surrounding area – making fingerprints Hands all over the selfie camera.

Although the animations don’t make you touch the selfie camera, with such a small area, it is difficult for your finger not to touch this area of the screen. The same thing happened with Samsung’s Galaxy S8 when the fingerprint sensor was placed next to the phone’s rear camera – users’ fingerprints often printed on the rear camera when they were trying to unlock with a fingerprint.

Obviously, with the user’s fingerprints sticking to the camera, they will have to regularly wipe it before using it – even if it’s just a gesture of wiping across the screen – but it still makes users uncomfortable. More importantly, this is rare for the notch design, simply because there’s no animation there.

Dynamic Island’s location is hard to reach

Surrounding the phone’s selfie camera, Dynamic Island is of course located at the top of the phone screen. It can be said that this is one of the hardest areas to reach if you are holding the phone with one hand. Maybe with the iPhone 14 Pro this won’t be a problem, but for iPhone 14 Pro Max users, the difficulty will be significantly more – especially for those with small hands.

This means that if they want to take advantage of the benefits that Dynamic Island brings, especially for iPhone 14 Pro Max users, they will most likely have to adjust the way they hold their device.

On top of that, it’s still a hole in the screen

Basically, Dynamic Island is two punched areas on the screen that combine with the surrounding pixels of the OLED screen that Apple turns on and off to blend into each other. Although under normal light, the black areas can blend into each other, but under strong light, the black areas of the camera and the screen will appear when underneath them are completely different materials.

While this discomfort only shows up in certain lighting conditions, it’s the same as the mark on folding screen devices or the fingerprint sensor under the screen of many Android smartphones – even if only visible under the screen. certain viewing angles – they still cause a certain amount of discomfort for users. While it’s not completely noticeable, users know it’s there and they get annoyed about it.


In fact, perhaps most ordinary users will not notice these problems. Usually only people who pay attention to every little detail on a device like Karthik Iyer can notice and get annoyed with such problems.

Even so, the arrival of Dynamic Island on the iPhone 14 Pro seems to be just the beginning. It is likely that Apple will soon add new features to this missing area in the future when this will become a feature of their iPhone line before Android rivals. Not only that, many reports also suggest that next year Dynamic Island may also be available on cheaper standard iPhone lines, not just limited to iPhone Pro devices like this year.

But with Dynamic Island appearing and likely to be exploited more by Apple in the near future, the future of an iPhone with a flawless, flawless screen may become even more distant – at least until when Apple figured out how to make it different from what Android competitors did a few years ago.
