A Mid-Year Assessment of the Battle on Smartphone Bezels

Irony is, the bezels on this image are YUGE!

Nevertheless, we should be grateful for a thoughtful redditor’s recent contribution to r/Android, comparing the differences between 2017’s “bezel-less” smartphones so far. There are some notable omissions… Xiaomi’s Mi Mix kicked off this craze last year but was never intended for the North American market, so that’s fine. But the Essential Phone should definitely be here. It’s also odd that the as-yet unreleased iPhone 8 is present, but the similarly-leaked Pixel 2 XL is not.

I think that the general idea here was to compare the bezels on specific phones and their forebears, specifically the Galaxy Note 8 vs. Note 7 and iPhone 8 vs. the 7 Plus. It also seems like the author is trying to decide between an LG V30 and G6. And for some reason the OnePlus 3 has been added to the comparison of bottom bezels and phone widths.
