the bezel is the same size as the iphone 5, and will be the same as the 5s. stop making up shitty reasons, if you don't like this phone then go buy something else.
its a phone, get a life
Anonymous, 27 Aug 2013I agree with your comment. That long bezel can be reduced. I don't care one bit for their 7 - ... more many people like slim phones of 8-9mm thickness and light weight phones. only few person like you want a13-14 mm ,it was a trend in 2008. and also a heavy phone? reallyyyy ..m
to the confidentiality they maintained I assumed it to become an icebreaker in terms of design but.......
I think that the bezel is a little much. I know that it is to make room for new hardware and stuff. But i thought things were supposed to be moving forward, like putting more into smaller phones. I really dont understand why the hell sony keeps leaking these photos of the WHITE z1. Its the ugliest of all the colors. If anyone DOES buy the z1, it probably wont be the white one. Its hideous, and it shows all of its flaws.
I think when they come out with the glamour shots of the BLACK one, with the screen protector off, people will come around. The color of the bezel looks like it will make more sense on the black model as well. You already know its gonna be a monster performance wise. Better speaker, camera, hopefully better viewing angles. Personally, i never liked the fact that the z had a flap over the headphone jack. You win some, u lose some
Sony are going backwards with their design!
Meanwhile some high end chinese fones like Zoppo C2 and THL W11 are rocking extremely thinner bezels and OGS full HD display
Anonymous, 27 Aug 2013Awesome specs but the overall SIZE and those HUGE BEZELS will put off a lot of ppl. This was o... more4.55" is the ideal size it is midway between 5" flagships and 4" popular iphone5, withe the ZR like impressive battery performance, it will be a big success for Sony.
i wish sony will realize their bezel is out of date and pls. the same screen with xz is not competitive at all.. and removable battery is missing.. slow innovation..before sony and samsung is just in the same level but now, i don't think so..
yeah, it doesn't look 2013 high end phone to me, with its bezel..its almost to be 5.5inc screen with that size..
Until this year, OEMs are still limiting their full capacity in making a flawless phone. And theyhave the reason for doing it. With Z1, Sony don't want to give it all their best. So I believe it is worth waiting until 2015, where OEMs, are left with a choice of giving all their best in design, hardware and softwafe innovations, thus making a near perfect smartphone, with almost zero limitation.
Awesome specs but the overall SIZE and those HUGE BEZELS will put off a lot of ppl. This was one of the devices i was seriously looking at besides the next Nexus. Well hopefully rumor of a highly spec'd Honami mini are true only problem is the 4.3" screen it is rumored to come with. I want a more compact Honani under 135mm tall but with a 4.7 to 5" screen.

Stop your whining unless you would like some cheese with that "whine". Wait until 4 September and until not really interested in your invalid opinions.

I don't care one bit for their 7 - 9 mm. thickness. Give me a 13-15 mm. that has a good weight where I don't feel like I'm holding a feather, and make the phone shorter. That's how it should be. I like how the LG G2 is, great size for a 5.2 incher.
