Our Advice to Samsung

Dear Samsung! We wish you implemented the camera hole hiding feature the different way. You shouldn’t just move the upper screen border several pixels down. You should just invert colors of the upper part of the display, leave all service icons (such as carrier name, wi-fi and cellular connection icons, clock and battery percentage) in place with the black background and leave more space for content (exactly as Huawei did on my Nova 3i):
