This is one of the few bezelless phones that aren't still massive in size despite the shrunken bezels. The compromises they made to get rid of the bezels are fairly mild. It's one of the few phones I might shell out hundreds of $ on. Only reason I won't consider it is because this Lenovo Zuk Edge I'm using is so similar to it and serves my needs perfectly. The bezels might be bigger, but 16:9 vids are displayed at the same size, so I don't care that much. Also no on-screen nav buttons.
Vic4BBM, 16 Sep 2017In my opinion, 3 phones are beautiful gadgets in terms of design - EPH1, IPHONE X and Mi Mix 2... moreThis phone really not for the masses but for the people who like style more than the other two you mentioned. Essential phone really beautiful expensive but beautiful especially in the dark green with golden trim.
It has better screen to body ratio than iPhone X. IPhone X is nothing new in design just a copy from Essential and with bigger bezels.
Nothing special here; no expandable memory, no IP68, limited GPS, expensive. Nothing to see here, move along folks...
Please, do a review of this smartphone!!! not just big brands are interesting...
In my opinion, 3 phones are beautiful gadgets in terms of design - EPH1, IPHONE X and Mi Mix 2.
These gadgets are meant for class of people (not for masses).For them hardware numbers are not priority when compared to experience and efficiency of usage.
And no gadget is perfect. It the user who should know how to use it perfectly.
No point in complaining if doesnt fit the usage to you as a user.
Lovely, slick, capable phone, but it gets poor signal reception in the rural area where I live. So most of its great features are fairly useless.
19.5 x 10 is a lie ... better say it has ~17.5 :9 that is 16:9 without its horns
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2017Never heard of hand-me-downs? Maybe you, rich bitches, can afford to buy a new 1000usd phone e... moreI do not know in what cave you live. I live in Romania, the poorest country in EU and i have 900 euro per month salary as engineer (10.800 euro net per year). I am a very rich bitch indeed, isn't it ??? Still, i can afford to change my smarhone every year and spend 800 euro every year for this hobby. Do you live in Congo ?? I can't explain how western people with 30.000-40.000 euro per year salary can't afford to spent 1000 euro per year for a new smartphone !!!!
Peter UK, 09 Sep 2017Because those screens fade after 3-4 years and people usually change phones around every 2 yea... moreIt is not because a few with too money in their pockets, too much time on their hands and the attention span of a goldfish buy a newphone every year or 2, that everybody else does the same. Most people use their phone longer than 2 years. Especially the people whom have to work for their income and don't live with mommy and daddy dearest.
AnonD-94869, 10 Sep 2017Who will keep this phone 4 years ??? :))))Never heard of hand-me-downs? Maybe you, rich bitches, can afford to buy a new 1000usd phone every year but the majority can't. So some folks, get the discarded stuff from their older son or daughter. I still see galaxy S3 neo and S4's around me. Even my dad still uses his xperia Z1 compact.
