    I need bezels for a decent case that actually protects your phone.

    Thumbs up if you want MKBHD to do a poll of those who prefer bezels or don't want bezels. I'm nit sure how much of us want this since it's helpful in holding the phone. Manufacturers should response to consumers and not the other way around. Also, give me bezels with phones at most 5.7" with today's best specs.

    is it good to care too much about moving parts, we don't use phones 10 years these days.. every 8 months or so we kinda change it. so what's wrong about a moving part, which can create a whole new dimension. well amazing video. 1 Question I have, almost after removing the camera then too we have a bit bezels like a millimeter or two, why that? is that something which which house circuits for the display.. can't we get rid of that too??

    i love how the essential phone looks kind of dated now with that chin even though it came out this year.

    The notch is not apple's way! stop saying that people has to copy apple! Apple copied the notch from a different phone

    Tell you what-keep the headphone jack and remove the front facing camera.

    So we get rid of bezels. How do you hold your phone while watching videos?

    As someone who doesnt really use the front camera I wouldn't mind a phone without a foward facing camera. I understand keeping the rear one, but removing the front camera to save aestethics is definitely something I would be on board with. Also a copper galaxy or iphone would be sick as well.

    Apple gets so much hate. If they never did the notch, phones like the essential phone wouldn’t exist as the do today. Apple sets trends. And leads in design.

    Your wallpapers are just amazing. Is there any new repository for the ones which you use? That one in the matebook x pro, specifically as well as the one in the thumbnail for the iPhone X 😎

    The "Notch" is a bezel. The little bit of screen on the side? Useless! It's just a way for Apple to claim a larger screen size and try and claim it has a tiny bezel when it does not.

    They could create super nano camera who will fit between pixels in screen..

    I like bezels of iPhone 6 onward. They don't look like on TV from 2008 thanks to their slim sides.
    Similar thing with Xperia line (IMO awful phones with great looks, i hate their android fork and HW problems).

    Some smartphones have rounded displays so why not square the top corners of the phone and put sensors there?

    I like bezelless but it must be uncomfortable watching videos in landscape without a place to rest your fingers

    Mkbhd, what do you think of a rear facing camera with a hinge to flip over the top to face forward like some digital cameras

  • Jacob Herlin

    I take issue with the claim that we can't remove the rear-facing camera or the proximity sensors. It annoys me that we have all this competition in smart phones, but no real options in terms of what the phone has beyond storage and screen size. I get that people use the rear-facing camera, but phones without one should be an option for people like me. Similarly, I absolutely hate holding the phone to my face, I answer calls with headphones, and occasionally speakerphone.

    Selfies and phone calls are things of the past that’s why we have “courage” to remove the whole damn thing ! Only apple could do that now is just text message end of conversation

    In this thin- or no-bezel era of phones, why aren't there any white color bezel phones anymore? I'd think a thin white-bezel Galaxy S9 or iPhone XS would look great. Anyone?

  • Juice2515

    Keep the top bezel. Front camera, front facing speakers, heck apple throw in your face idea. I hate notches, so the Samsung way is for me

    The culture changed from most of the 2000s, from 2000--2005 or 2007. Back then nobody cared about bezels, it was just cool having some kind of technology that we didn't have before. I mean for all intents and purposes, most of the technology in 2005 wasn't all that different from 1995, I mean not really. Most cell phones still looked like 90s cell phones, although people had DVDs, many people still had VCRs, the web had evolved from 1995 to 2005, but social media and USclip was still in it's infancy. As the technology became more common place and evolved, people started demanding more.

    You can't even provide a real reason for getting rid of bezels. Your entire argument is "get rid of bezels because it's the future hurrdurrrr". That argument is a tautology: "it's better because it's better." Uh, okay? You haven't convinced anyone with an IQ over 70 that bezelless is somehow better.

    One reason I bought my flat Galaxy S7 is to admire its beautiful pink gold bezel.

    This is what happens when we let preppy millennial tech journalists with the design senses of teenagers dictate to manufacturers what the trends should be. How the fuck am I supposed to hold my phone comfortably, especially while watching a video, without touching the screen, if the fucking thing is all screen? Not only does that mean you’re going to be accidentally pressing shit all the time, but it also means covering the screen while watching videos. Now I have to pinch the phone by either side and hope my thumb fat doesn’t accidentally slip over the edges. Furthermore, fuck good stereo speakers, I guess. And I guess everyone just decided to lube up their assholes to get fucked rather than actually vote for keeping the headphone jack with their wallets. Fuck you tech “journalists,” fuck you sheep consumers, fuck all of you. Now I can’t even buy a modern phone without some retarded bullshit like a notch, no headphone jack, or no micro-SD support.
