Phones with “all screen” designs will soon be the standard in the smartphone industry, at least as far as flagship phones are concerned. Apple recently hopped on the bandwagon, and Google has followed suit with the Pixel 2 XL. Samsung impressed us all with the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, and LG has also been playing the bezel-less game for some time with devices like the LG G6 and, more recently, the LG V30. Even Huawei has such a device in the upcoming Mate 10, and an image leakster Evleaks had made shows how the top bezel of each of these phones compares with Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8.

It’s all about the bezels

LG and Huawei have gotten the hang of keeping the bezels uniform and minimal, while the Pixel 2 XL takes up a bit more space, possibly due to the front-facing stereo speakers. Apple has clearly taken the wrong route with that unsightly notch ruining the experience on the iPhone X and putting the kibosh on the company’s “all-screen design.” The Galaxy Note 8’s top bezel may not be as tiny as LG or Huawei’s device, but hey, it does have a higher-resolution front camera compared to the V30 and an iris scanner to accommodate.

We don’t just say this because we’re a Samsung fan site, but we think the company’s take on phones with virtually no bezels is the best there is, with its industry-leading AMOLED displays adding to the charm. The image below doesn’t make that clear, though, so it’s just a way to see the kind of approach different companies are taking to increase screen-to-body ratios. Take a look, and let us know what you think!

A picture like these where you squash them in the other direction would be useful. You could still show off the top and bottom bezel styles but it would really show the advantage of the superthin Samsung side bezels and be more relevant since phones are longer in the vertical direction so it’s more relevant space wise.

You might notice that books don’t tend to be “bezel-less”, even though I’m sure it would present much less of a technical challenge. Maybe that is because it would make the book awkward to handle and read, your thumb would be forever getting in the way of the screen – I mean page.

Have never had that problem.. I think most reasonably intelligent people can hold the phone or even a book at the sides and not cover the page or screen with fingers. However the mentally challenged could always just have a case on the phone and hold it instead. Even normal people use a case too.

I have to say that I don’t know the mate10 but as I can see from these images the only true bezel-less design is made by Sammy and Huawei. The others just have an “unusual” screen ratio but still have embarrassing lateral bezels (the ones that matter most when you take with your hands the phone, somewhat called ERGONOMICS)
