You seem to have the stock screen protector on, might make it easier to notice. Also the cam becomes harder to notice at higher brightness levels until it becomes invisible around 50-60% brightness. This tech isn't perfect yet.

I returned the phone to the store. A different color was visible every time, regardless of the brightness of the screen. I have not seen such an effect on any movie on the internet as in my case. Do you see the front camera on your phone?

There is a cover on the unboxed Mix 4 which needs removing. It accentuates the notch hole, because it is a protective cover for shipping.

I rarely if ever see my notch, no. Even at angles like in the post here. It's probably the best feature. There is hardly any compromise.

So you were right to take it back if the notch is that visible without the default protective cover

He totally had the protective plastic on. If you look from the side, at a low angle, you definetely see the camera mark, but only if you look for it. In normal use, it's the absolute best implementation of the tech and also the main reason one would buy this phone.

It's not a problem with protective plastic. Service team from tradingshenzhen tried to fix this but they can't do this. They send my phone to xiaomi in China.
Ehh, no money and no phone since few months :/

Hi, I have new Mix 4 and I can see front camera position again. On the low brightness much more. I can see it all the time. Is this normal?
I don't have protective plastic on the screen.

This is not normal, the shape is kind of irregular, it's strange.

Just to be clear, with my Mix 4, if I look from a very low angle or if I watch it from the side, the selfie camera can be seen if you really look for it, but looking at the screen from a normal position, I don't see it at all. I don't even notice the selfie cam when I:
-use the phone
-text
-scroll through news / Instagram
-use betting apps
-youtube

In some apps it's noticeable, ex. in IMDB app, the selfie cam is highlited, but other than this, I don't see it.

Thanks for opinion. I'll contact with xiaomi support from China, maybe they have fix for this or somthing else. If not, i will have to return the phone :|
I think sometimes this camera is less visible than usualy.

In low level of brightness do you see front camera? In my case in high level of brightness that "hole" is less visible than in low level, but today i saw very good this circle with max level, then i locked the phone and unlocked, and camera was less visible. Magic.
