Apple has a LOT more sensors/lenses than those Androids with the teardrop notch or hole. You can't fit all that stuff in a teardrop or small hole. Several holes maybe, but what's the gain of that when it ends up taking about the same amount of space? It isn't like you could use the space between the holes for anything useful assuming they are spaced as closely together as the sensors in the notch are.
Assuming it is possible to have a camera that looks through/between the pixels, maybe all that stuff can be under the display in a few years. Until then you have a choice of a notch, a bunch of holes, or a "forehead". Given that EVERY Android phone still has a "chin" which Apple eliminated, they can't claim to have "got it right" either, so I guess we have to accept every phone has certain shortcomings and is a tradeoff of things that aren't what you'd want in an ideal world.
Heck there are people who bemoan the loss of bezels, for reasons I can't possibly fathom.
