Steadily but surely, we need to accept the notch display as it’s now a part of us. The company had to flow with the current trend, the notch on the Koolnee Apex houses the selfie camera, speaker grille and sensors. However, they couldn’t completely get rid of the bottom bezel.

The 6.18-inch FHD+ IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen is a little bit disappointing in terms of features. Has a resolution of 480 x 996 pixels and 195 pixel per inch density, which should make all your movies and games come alive. Overall, the screen stretched up to 80% screen to body ratio.
