Because they aren't using the more expensive flexible OLED panels that Apple's using. They need the chin to house the connections for the display, while Apple's folds underneath, keeping all connections underneath the display, instead of at the end of it.... so the question is why do these copycats still need a bezel at the bottom? They put the finger print sensor on the back.

I HATE USB-C on my MacBook. It's a pain in the ass compared to Lightning.

In a world where top-line Android phones are decent all-round machines, Apple is seen a being greedy. As a 30 year Apple user who has bought tens of thousands of pounds worth of Apple gear in that time, I'm getting totally fed up with the high prices and limited choice in each segment such as desktop Macs.
In the past, it was worth it as Windows was a nightmare world I didn't want to enter into. Now though Windows and Android have got to the point of being passable. I might just make the move.

The notch serves a very crucial purpose at this point. I've had the X, XS Max and now the 11 Pro Max. Seriously, the notch really doesn't matter. At the screen ratio, stretching any video crops it anyway. No videos are natively at that ratio.

I had a Cricut Explore Air 2, and used it less than 3 times, before upgrading to a Silhouette Cameo 4. Silhouette Studio is also much more robust, especially if you find a deal on the Pro version (I got mine for a one-time $50). Cricut is very limited, and the pricing is insane for all the better quality you get. The almost-required monthly subscription is another slap in the face to Cricut users.
When you want to step up in the world of plotters, look into the offerings from USCutter. I had their SC2 28" before our home burned down last November. It was a solid budget machine that's Mac compatible. The included Sure Cuts A Lot Pro (the Mac-compatible app) is very capable, and I upgraded to the latest version at a very reasonable price on their website. When I replaced it, I went with their PrismCut 28", which has WiFi. It's a great pro-level plotter for under $1,000.
The only thing made by Cricut that I buy is their weeding tool. Those truly are nice. As for their vinyl? Overpriced garbage. EasyPress? For the money, buy a real heat press.
LOL anyone thinking battery life will be better due to capacity STILL doesn't know anything about Android's power-hungry deficiencies versus Apple hardware & software. That's pretty bad coming from an Apple-centric site. Real-world testing has always shown that bigger batteries in Android devices really never mean they come close to being anywhere near as efficient as Apple's devices with smaller batteries. I'm surprised there wasn't any gloating about the S22 Ultra having more RAM, because we know that always means better performance for Android devices... 🤣
