For DISPLAY it almost can't get big enough.
For TOUCH it easily gets too big, already on current devices AND touch at the edges easily gives accidental interaction...
At the very least let the user select some dead-zones or virtual bezels, that does NOT react to touch, to make the edge to edge devices easier to hold.
BUT: What we really need is a rethink of the current smartphone OSs UI, to have only a limited part of the display active for interaction. AND the area should be user-selectable, depending on hand-size, or if the user want to always use it by two hands.
For older apps, these could simply be displayed shrunken in PiP in a user selectable windows matching the thumb in use. But it would require a completely new set of dynamic API-guidelines for new apps if the interactive part depends on the hand-size. So not super easy!!
No matter what, SOME interactions are bound to require two hands - we already need two hands for pinching. But if the MAJORITY of the daily operation could be done one-handed keeping a secure grib it would be great.
yeees. we are near to launch this so ugly phone. And what a shame for Apple About this phone.
Note: The price will start at about 1000$.
The design language we are headed to could be a rude awakening for most people once they realize too many accidental touches, fragility, weird aspect ratios, and needing to have extra long fingers to pull down a notification shade. People are bashing Sony for huge bezels. Maybe they are right all along.
Not good. Note8, Essential, iPhone X, Mi Mix, Mate 10, all could be just awkward to hold and a waste of money like the curved displays are. Just look where your hand touches the phone when holding it. Near edge to edge is going to mess up how you type, play games, take a photo big time. You would need to relearn how to hold these new designs and it will be inconvenient.
Nokia 8 is my clear #1. Then maybe V30 but I don't like glass rears.

Apparently when used on landscape you can use the power button as the shutter button. Search for EverythingApplePro on youtube and see the "iPhone 8, 8 Plus & iPhone Edition! FINAL Leaks!" video at 5:50.
I'm not an iPhone guy, but I feel like the home button on iPhone is a hallmark on their phones, and I can't imagine an iPhone without the home button :(
Remember as a child.... My First Phone...? Was it designed by Tomy Time
I don't like the position of the camera on the iphones, always on the way when u want to take quick pics
This "new" phone looks exactly the same as the "old" phone. Why would you upgrade? It's the same old iCrap.
Duel, 07 Sep 2017Looks very good and also look that overall size of phone! Instant hit Next year we see lot ... moreiPhone using OLED screen from Samsung, Samsung has doing it on the Galaxy S8, it is called innovation?
seriously, i dont like the design. weird, and i think i didnt see the iPhone design language here. it's like an "alien" iPhone
Duel, 07 Sep 2017Looks very good and also look that overall size of phone! Instant hit Next year we see lot ... moreTypical ignorance ifans, why would they go from full screen 18:9 to half baked with huge notch screen. It doesn't make any sense. Probably you have low IQ lol, it would be the same as you say they go from full circle to flat tired circle.
reaching the bottom and top of the screen is gonna be a huge problem with that design.
If there is the most ugly phone award in 2017 then iPhone x or 8 will be the top contender up front. It win by wide margin in unanimous decisions no doubt.
I press ctrl+f and enter the word ugly in the search box, as what I expected. I found 5 so far LOL
Duel, 07 Sep 2017Bezels have reason to be there. Screen looks better If it's inside bezel. Just like tv has bez... moreNO they are huge because Samsung is using edge bezels so that's why they are fragile, but what about the LG G6 and the LG V30, they have thin bezels and are flat phones and this iCrap calling himself bezel less is no bezel less, instead, he is a complete shame and they talk about Sony. WOW!!!!!
$1000+ for a phone !! yikes!! toooo much !! I like Apple, was thinking about switching, but not now....sticking with Android unfortunately.
Anonymous, 07 Sep 2017the bezels are waaaay too thick.. Samsung S9 here I come!Bezels have reason to be there. Screen looks better If it's inside bezel. Just like tv has bezels, it makes photo pop out more.
It won't break after first drop, galaxy S8 is most fragile phone in the market, also there's those mistake touches when your fingers always touching screen.
