The Samsung Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10+ were finally unveiled. These devices have a lot in common, but one of the most noticeable traits is the display cutout/hole punch for the front-facing cameras.
While you can choose to leave it as it is or use the hide notch feature on the phone to create a black band on top, the Reddit community has a different solution. Users on Reddit have created an entire sub-Reddit with creative wallpapers that incorporate the notch into the artwork.
Here are 20 of the best wallpapers people have created to hide the camera cutout in new Samsung phones.
1. World’s controversial leaders
2. Nick Fury
3. Baymax: “Are you satisfied with your care?”
5. I couldn’t even tell where the cut-out was for a second.
The Galaxy S10e and Galaxy S10 have a single, circular cutout, while the Galaxy S10+ has a dual, elongated cutout. These holes present some challenges and opportunities when it comes to home screen wallpapers.
There are two approaches you can take to something like display notches and cutouts. You can try to hide them as much as possible, or instead of fighting it, just embrace the feature.
6. You can never go wrong with anything Futurama.
7. “Mmm… Donuts!”
8. Wait, there’s a cut-out?
9. Red Dea d Redemption
10. Swipe left to explore the Galaxy
The most common is incorporating the cut-out as an eye of the character in the wallpaper. The most common characters being Wall-e, R2D2, and even Darth Vader.
Some people have used the punched hole of the S10 as the nose of cats and dogs. And as you can see above, some even go as far ahead as using it as part of binoculars being held up by Kim Jong Un, to obviously spy on someone.
11. Now we know why this one is quite popular.
12. Perfect fit.
13. Looks bananas.
14. Who is he spying this time?
15. This one is open for interpretation.
While Samsung’s new flagship range may have included powerful new hardware and impressive software, the new Infinity-O hole-punch display was likely to determine whether or not the Samsung Galaxy S10 range fell or flew on launch day.
Thankfully for the South Korean company, most owners are taking it well.
16. Lunar eclipse
17. “Bite my shiny metal a**.”
19. Everybody loves Wall-E!
20. Long live Nintendo robot!
Smartphone lovers everywhere seem to have taken to the hole-punch display exceptionally well, but no one could have predicted owners of the S10, S10 Plus, and S10e would start using the hole-punch display as an amusing part of their wallpaper — but we’re glad they did.

Second HIV-Positive Person Has Been Cured Of The Life-Threatening Disease
The unidentified man was cleared of the disease only three years after stem cell treatment.
An HIV-positive man in Britain has just become the second known adult to be cleared of the deadly virus after receiving a bone marrow transplant. According to the patient's doctors, the stem cells from an HIV-resistant donor helped in removing all traces of the HIV infection.
The anonymous patient contracted the disease in 2003 and was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma by 2012. However, it wasn't until 2016 that he was able to access the stem cell donation. The man received the stem cells as a treatment for cancer. Amazingly, highly sensitive tests show no trace of the man's previous HIV infection only three years after receiving stem cells from the donor with a rare genetic mutation that resists infection.
The case once again proved that stem cell treatment can help patients with the HIV virus.
