The iphonex notch has kind grown on me.

Im ok with top and bottom bezels. I like being able to grab the bottom of the phone without touching the screen. Just give me a phone without side bezels and im good

Does anyone have that blue iPhone x wallpaper??
Here's a crazy idea Meizu Pro 6 Plus has a secondary 2 inch display, so you can use the main cameras as selfie cameras, that could eliminate the front facing cam. Sure you'd need a much larger display on the back to make it worth-while, because you know face-time people, but phones are already using glass backs, maybe make the back into another display, that is only used when you use the camera, maybe fool around with a facial recognition thing, make the display pop up when it detects your face otherwise keep it black and show the camera output on the main display. Also if it's good enough res screen you can use it to have "wallpapers" on the back of your phone and truly customize it. I'm aware that it'll kill the phone case thing, but maybe we'll start making plexiglass cases? I don't know just going off the top of my head with no filter. OH another idea use something like moto mods and put the front-facing cam on a mod/case that can be removed and put on when needed and make the camera, like a flip-phone thing on the mod, where it's used as an additional 3rd camera when on the back for x10 lossless zoom and then you can flip it to the front and use it as a selfie cam with monster res, I'm thinking some crazy shit like the 40mpx thing on the P20 Pro.

Why is this even a problem? We need batteries that last all day with REAL use throughout the day and people focusing on bezels and calling it a deal breaker. Come on

Just wish people would stop being greedy & just accept that having some bezel on the phone isn’t the end of the world. Buncha phone snobs.

What if the smartphone companies gave you an option to have a front facing camera on your smartphone when you order it online? The only reason I give this option is because I'm sure there are plenty of people that would forgo having a front facing camera to have a bezel-free device. When I really think back, I hardly ever use my front facing camera. Could be others, or I could simply be wrong. Just a thought.

Love the idea of a motorized front facing camera. It does open up another set of issues that are possible to arise. And of course price... What if the front facing camera was inside the top of the phone (like the motorized one) but instead of being motorized you basically press down on it and it pops out (sort of like SD card slots of old). That removes the motorized component and i think it would keep cost under control.

I say remove that stupid selfie camera. Put a small screen at the back which turns on for notifications and as a secondary screen for back camera.
Mitchell Miles (22 days ago)
I agree. The Essential Phone had the best feel and design. If they can develop better camera software I'd be sold! Until then, I'm pretty happy with the Pixel 2.

When you gonna get your hands on that Mate RS? Looks like it's the first commercially available phone with a fingerprint scanner in display. It's obscenely expensive, but it's there.

I love bezels. Bezels are not bad and make mobiles good to look. Don't know why this hate for bezels started all of a sudden in 2017 when earlier no one hated bezels Hate this notch trend. Notches are ugly to look and I phone started this ugly trend

I think the first company to kill the selfie camera would be apple..and they’ll most probably release a selfie cam extension which will be 199$ and call it “courage” 😅 You know it's inevitable😅

Remove the front camera, add a smaller screen on the back like some other phone I can't remember the name of, and use the rear cameras for all the selfies
Eric Boge (25 days ago)
Complete without edges is certainly strange. How to hold your phone? Then there are very small edges.

Apple, Essential and Xiaomi maybe? 'Cause the Mi Mix has no notch ik, but it's pretty bezel-free.

Adam Gaudi (27 days ago)
How about instead of a moving the front camera out of the phone, do a moving screen that hides the camera (for all the people who like to cover their inactive cameras:) ) and then moves to reveal a front camera when u want to take a selfie or whatever.
Aozotra (28 days ago)
i prefer s9's packed features into thin bezels. The eyesore notch is unacceptable. I'll get a near bezeless when the tech catches up.

If the Pixel 3 comes out with a notch I'm not buying it until this new stupid notch trends go away.... I will keep my Pixel 2 XL and I hope everyone else does the same, maybe and just maybe Google gets the point. I was thinking of going back to Samsung but apparently they are also thinking of jumping on the bandwagon.. SMH

Instead of spending so much money to find new screen design tech (which already looks fine in my opinion), why don’t companies put that money where consumers actually want it to he spent: BATTERY LIFE. I would take a phone with next generation battery life over a phone with a next generation screen design.

I got an idea, how about an additional screen at the back of the phone for that perfect selfies.. 100% screen in the front and only need one camera for pictures, videos, selfies, video call etc..

The notch is the worst screen design in history! I prefer phones with minimal bezels to give me visual cue on the limits of what I'm seeing
Michael Spears (1 month ago)
Ambient light sensors are less effective anywhere other than the front. When I’m looking at my screen I don’t want it to get darker because it’s slightly darker in front of me. What if there’s sun in my phone but a shadow right in front of me?

Thank you Apple for pushing tech forward even if people complain all the way there.

I prefer Samsung’s design. Very functional, all they need to do is reduce the bottom bezel but keep the top one. That’s as far as phone design can go without compromising functionality.

Apart from tech reviewers, who asked for bezel-less phones? A bezel so small that your skin in your fingers goes over it and covers a little area of the screen when you hold it or also might activate the touchscreen area in that corner is not really that practical for content consumption or usability.

Why not place a small screen at the back of the phone. In place of the half glass back that pixel has. This way front can be bezelless and you can have the same camera for selfies and normal pictures with great quality
Dylan (1 month ago)
The notch issue for most people would overall be fixed by the notch being blacked out or the option to black out that top bezel. Apple will never do it officially but android companies can. Because realistically most phones are going to a 19.5:9, 18:9 or a 21:9 aspect ratio even. Most of those mean a 16:9 video is not going to take up the full display so any notch isn't an issue for media. Only for apps which again allow for the notch to be blacked out. Just no more of the massive chins on both sides, no more huge bezels and notch, no more massive bezel only on one side. Either notch or make it bezel less basically at this point. Even I use to think the Galaxy and Note lineups looked amazing but I cringe almost having such thick bezels at the top and bottom. Even seeing an iPhone 7 Plus or 8 Plus i cringe at those massive bezels at the top and bottom. Plus I don't really think we are too many years away from an in display selfie camera. Something allowing it to be put behind the screen maybe even more center than at the top or bottom.

I think the idea of that camera is brilliant and tbh you could even just have one camera on a phone that pops up like that and is reversible if you you know what I mean so we don't have to use a good camera for normal pictures and then a worse quality one for selfies

Psst, hey do you wanna hear a secret? They minimize the bezels because you have no problem with it, and they make money on you dropping your phone and cracking that 100% unchangeable screen.

I like the look of the notch the best. Apple is just being revolutionary and all of these minor phone brands just have to go out and copy it but worse. The notch only looks good when it's near the width of the iPhone X's. In my opinion, the skinny notches just look weird and even more obtrusive.

Idk if it’s just me but bezel less phones feel not right. I still really like the standard iPhone bezels of the 6-8 models. Idk probably just me
ThoseWhoStayUofM (1 month ago)
If a smartphone manufacturer developed a bezel-less Galaxy Note sized phone that had no front-facing camera for $700 (saving money by not having the camera at all), I would buy it. Selfies are lame. Just politely ask somebody to take your picture properly. We live in a friendly society for a reason.

For real, apple is the future..
What I think we could do to get the bezeles phone is to get rid of the front facing camera and put a little screen on the back so when we want to take a selfie we use the camera on the back and we would be able to see what were taking a photo of on the little screen on the back. It’s probably impossible with the technology we have now and would cost a lot to make but thats one way we could do it.

Notch like Kim Jong Un Haircut That really stupid design
Øswald (1 month ago)
could one put the selfie cam on a moving platform which locks into the top of the device? like how you push the s-pen to get it out, you would push on the camera and it would pop up... the camera would be stowed away when not in use while also being disabled, there would be contact pads on either side of the little platform which touch some on the top of the casing when in use and those would transfer the data and power... only problem I see is the pneumatic seal, how would one of those be applied to something like this? Rattling is a potential problem, but I trust that these companies to have the manafacturing capability to do something like this...

I like the bezel because it protect my phone screen when i drop it on the floor and it allow me to hold the phone comfortably. W should get rid of the IPhone notch and Samsung Infinity screen. I am also missing the removable battery that allow me to change my battery easily when I carry my phone and carry extra battery with my phone. I dont care about wireless charging. I also really like my SD card slot. There is no need to remove the headphone jack, wireless music use to much of the battery.

How about you hide the FF camera until you're ready to use it. It will still be at the front but hidden under the glass like a two way mirror.

How about a second screen on the back for selfies? In that way there's no need for a front facing camera.
