Dual notch is UGLY?

Yes, the Sharp Aquos R2 Compact has a 5.2-inch FHD+ IGZO display running at 2280 x 1080. It also has 2.5D curved glass with Corning Gorilla Glass protection. The design is ridiculous since it sports a halo notch up top and a wider notch at the chin.

It seems like the top notch contains the selfie camera while the bottom notch houses the fingerprint sensor. This is another way of "maximizing" screen-to-body ratio without adding new tech such as an In-Display fingerprint reader.
