Water Drop notch on a smartphone display is a design innovation that allows for more screen real estate without having to increase the proportions of the smartphone itself. A water drop notch enables the screen to stretch to the edges, with the only interruption in the top centre where the bezel dips down to make space for the front camera module. Smartphones with a water drop notch are suitable for gaming, watching movies and reading articles. If you’re looking for one for yourself, check out these options on Amazon.

Vivo V20

The Vivo V20 is a mid-range smartphone that sports a 6.44-inch FHD+ display, which should deliver bright and crisp visual output. This smartphone should also be good for mobile photography as it has an impressive 64MP triple camera setup at the back. Try using the Super wide-angle night mode, night mode, art portrait video, super macro, tripod night mode and bokeh portrait modes for creative shots. You should be able to click decent selfies with the 44MP front camera.

Samsung Galaxy M21

The Samsung Galaxy M21 is one of the few smartphones in the budget segment to offer a Super AMOLED display. With a water drop notch allowing for more screen real estate, the smartphone is ideal for watching movies, playing games and browsing social media. There’s also a 48MP triple camera setup at the back and a 20MP selfie camera housed in the water drop notch. 

Oppo A12

The Oppo A12 is a stylishly-designed smartphone with a water drop notch on the display, joining in on the trend of diminishing bezels and increasing screen sizes. The A12 rocks a 5MP selfie camera on the water drop notch which allows the 6.5-inch LCD to go all the way to the edges, covering 82% of the body. The smartphone is powered by the MediaTek Helio P35 SoC and comes with a 5,000mAh battery. 

Redmi 9 Prime

If you have a limited budget but want a good visual experience from your smartphone, then the Redmi 9 Prime should make it to the list. It has a big 6.53-inch FHD+ display with a waterdrop notch design, which should give you a good viewing experience. You can store multiple movies, videos and pictures on this smartphone, as it comes with a 64GB internal memory, which is expandable via microSD. Watch movies on the go while commuting without having to worry about battery life, as the big 5020mAh battery should power the smartphone for the whole day under optimal use.
