Well, this didn't take long. For some reason "Dynamic Island" does not look right on Android devices. It just looks strange and off-set.

It's kind of depressing that the Android world seems so interested in a feature that's passable enough for most Apple diehards to pass on this year's phone. You've got a full top row, guys… have some self-esteem.
