Thats My Opinion, 13 Mar 2017If Screen freezes and Touch Becomes Unresponsive...How will that fingerprint through screen he... moreWell every device having non-removable battery does a reboot when power button is pressed for 10 seconds(Won't work on note 4 cause it has removable battery).
But in case if mobile hangs,removing the battery and putting it back is the way I prefer. That's why I'm still stuck with my note edge for 1 and half year...

The upper bezel won't be like this as it's not final unit, Samsung covers led notification light tho it's visible in their leaked prototypes just like the early leaked note 7, some or many of those holes will be hidden except the speaker grill, front cam and proximity sensors.
I really appreciate that samsung is with a new design with its gs8. But, the upper bezel in other colors looks too much horrible. And most significantly,the golden color should be avoided. it doesn't go with the model.
I don't get it: 3 flagships?
Just make make the Note 6.2". A giant phone without am S-Pen? Ridiculous.
I will wait.
Top bezel actually looks awesome. Screen's too large for my tastes, but this is a good looking plank.
There's no satisfying some people. Before everyone was complaining because of phones bezel,now they're shrunk down its ugly. Just because Samsung has rounded the corners all of a sudden they're copying LG? I can guarantee this design was being worked on long before the G6 was developed because the G6 is only designed that way because the G5 was so dreadful. The Samsung curved screens have been developed for years.

Anybody who thinks it ugly or beautiful will but it anyway because its Samsung. Just like how people buy Apple products cause its Apple
Lithuanian_boy, 13 Mar 2017It is a terrible design !!!

They should have put the fingerprint under the glass though (easier to unlock) and I agree it looks ugly. I much prefer Xiaomi's approach to "bezeless": http://cdn2.gsmarena.com/vv/pics/xiaomi/xiaomi-mix-02.jpg
Much better looking, less "dead areas" (areas hard to use), not abnormally tall (which certainly impacts both usability and the way apps look).
I think Mi Mix is the best bezeless phone currently out (big battery too) and I can't wait for Mi Mix 2 (prolly my next phone, especially seeing how the Koreans failed at making good looking bezeless phones).
These are screen protector manufacturer's pics - the phones are either dummies or pre-release models and both have very fugly tempered glass screen protectors on them. Not saying the phones aren't accurate, but the sensors really stand out and the curves look terrible because of the protectors used.
And all the 'G6' look-a-like comments are getting boring, and seriously overblown. If you can't tell the difference, go to the GSMArena Phone Finder and bring them both up in the Compare Phones tool -- you will CLEARLY see the difference.
Damn. That top bezel is fugly. Way too much going on.
And I might have preferred a logo on the bottom bezel, like the G6.
With all the holes, black is prolly the best colour. Especially with its infinity display, black makes it even more immersive.
