Think about the integrity of the screen if there was no bezel there, what would happen?
Beautiful, but, these bezels...............Even Sony did a little bit better, so, why don't them take off this black bar above and just a little bit around.
... only thing you must take about is You need a Stable phone + low batt tahe the E330 samsung phone in only 32gb model + 64SD wow the GPU scores at 33000 with ATUTU (play store Atutu)
has anyone noticed that the largeness of this phone is basically only lengthways? in terms of width, it's actually thinner than the g2 and what i think from the pics is the z1.
i do agree with what others are saying though. HTC kinda blundered a bit in leaving the huge bottom bezel in place.
Champak, 19 Mar 2014Does it have beats audio?Nope htc m8 or all new htc one doesnt have beats audio like previous phone. Beats electronics bought back 50% shares htc had. Thats why new htc doesnt have beats audio on back cover, htc are producing sound from speakers themselfs this time round.

What a waste. I was excited about this phone. And they still seem to have pretty big bezels at the sides of the screen, like the original One. Why can't they do as well with bezels as other existing phones.
In any case, it looks huge next to the S4 and even the G2, which are not small phones.

The iPhone is the right size maybe slightly larger screen would be ok, the S4 is also a good size, the others are absolutely ridiculous phablets!!!!
XXL, 19 Mar 2014the most beautiful phone ever made. i love it HTCI'm pretty sure you haven't seen the Oppo Find 7 yet. That phone makes the HTC One and the new One to look like trash.
Huge bezel. Just like any HTC phone.
Ha! Ever wondering why they only do comparison pic from the backside, not the front side?
*Hint: It's that huge bezel*
These comparison pics just confirm that HTC phone will have huge bezel. Otherwise they will compare from the front side, right ?
dude, 19 Mar 2014It wouldn't be so long if they had taken away the HTC's bar. They already have onscreen button... moreI agree. The size and shape would have been perfect if the black bar with the HTC logo was removed. It would basically be like the old HTC One in size except with a bigger screen due to on screen buttons.
Love the look from the back...i really wish it was less tall by getting rid of that black logo bar or at least have a larger 5.2"+ screen to utilize all that space. If the LG G2 at 138.5" tall can pack a 5.2" screen we should expect more screen space from a device that is 146.4" tall.
Its a beautiful phone but come on HTC! You could have been able to decrease the bezels a little more. That HTC logo should be just etched or painted on the back and not spoil the bottom part.
