Do you know Sharp smartphone already have the bezel-less smartphone before Samsung S8 and S8+, so the slimmer bezel isn't a new vision in nowadays. I think they should making a the hardest smartphone just like a tank before the use the slimmer bezel designs, because a good design can't without a great durability to ensure it lifespan.

Massive bezels is not progressive design. It's an old characteristic that makes screens smaller & phones larger - unnecessarily so in 2017.
They could, and should, do so much better.
A pink paint job shouldn't fool anyone.
Life's like a marsh - you sink if you stop moving.
Sony has hardly moved in years.
Royan, 24 Apr 2017I prefer to get 3500mah battery rather then color options. Sony disease! Please compare it with s8 battery..
Why are haters always complaining about the bezel and brick design,for all we know it's SONY SIGNATURE DESIGN. Why force sony to change design to look like iphone or samsung???? SONY IS NOT A COPY-PASTE like those chinese phone manufacturer. They're the only company who has a UNIQUE - Simplistic DESIGN that is different from all other smartphone. SONY IS LIKE A FERRARI of smartphones. ONLY FEW CAN AFFORD to buy it.

Ya'll people always criticize it's bezels.
Bezels won't blow up on your face and it won't give you bootloop problems.
alfran, 24 Apr 2017too late for release, its always the mistake of sony to release their phones too late for the ... morePLEASE GATHER SOME INFO BEFORE MAKING COMMENTS. The reason why SONY wasn't able to release the phone earlier is due to snapdragon 835 chipset being hoarded by samsung as part of their agreement with Qualcom. NO OTHER Mobile tech was able to release a smartphone bearing a qualcom snapdragon 835 chipset as of this month, only SAMSUNG. Wait nextmonth and SONY will release their flagship the XZ PREMIUM.
