imparanoic, 16 Aug 2017every phone has unique advantages and features, not every one likes minimal bezels, yes, there... moreThere is no justification for those huge bezels
They could be less
No one is asking for no bezels, just trim a bit
Sony Fanboy Bitches, 16 Aug 2017And for the same period of time, Apple and Samsung have gotten more look-a-like for each gener... morei won't argue that sony are sturdy phones, quality is one of their strenghts. But tbh everything evolves, sony must aswell. Sony lost to movie business a lot, TVs also and it's market share on smartphones isn't going any better. Sony is still strong on the camera market and console market (thank god).
I really think sony could do a revamp on its design, i guess they're jsut too afraid to do it. LG despite the failure of the LG G4 and LG G5 they came up big with the LG G6, it was a success. Same as huawei, constantly improving it's build quality and appealing they just grew to be a big company that is today.
The lack of improvement in HTC made it what it is today, But with the HTC 11 it changed a bit with innovation.
Sony should too to become what it was once before a great smartphone brand when Xperia was still around
So they still don't want to trim down that huge bezels. Sony doesn't seem to hear the opinion of their fans. I like sony phones but please sony, just trim down that huge bezels. Follow the trend except the curve screen.
AnonD-519850, 16 Aug 2017And from that point of view of yours, sony has this design since the T2 or even older. roughly... moreAnd for the same period of time, Apple and Samsung have gotten more look-a-like for each generations.
The S8/S8+ and Note 8 have razor thin bezels, and so will be the upcoming iPhone 8 models.
Sony may have kept the same design, but one thing to give credit to them is how they remained the last manufacturer to make phones that look nothing like anything else in the market, no matter where you look at it.
50% bezels? Nah. They manage those bezels better. Others just don't have enough package to bring inside their bezels, hence why decide to go small bezel design.
ErmReally, 16 Aug 2017Don't all iPhones and Samsung phones look the same?
It's called Visual Consistency.
And from that point of view of yours, sony has this design since the T2 or even older. roughly from 2012. Now look the Samsung s3 vs the samsung s8
Or the iphone 4 vs iphone 7. There has been a dramatic change on the build design. While Sony just keeps its rectangular shape with its 50% bezels
ErmReally, 16 Aug 2017Don't all iPhones and Samsung phones look the same? It's called Visual Consistency. I'd say not all, but they always have something in common.
ErmReally, 16 Aug 2017Don't all iPhones and Samsung phones look the same? It's called Visual Consistency. iphone and samsung the same? Jesus, look the the screen difference, look at the screen technology. Look at the curved screen on the samsung. Jesus, they're not alike, at all. I would rather compare the iphone to the xiaomi mi6 or the oneplus 5. And compare the LG6 to the samsung s8
waw.. unique design, all metal. i like what they do with antenna strip to make back of the phone look more clean
Does sony really has design thinkers? Did they really pay their designers well? How come the design has not changed within years.... Smh

AnonD-690051, 16 Aug 2017thats why both of them are uglyCan you explain what makes a phone ugly?
Is it the presence of bezels? Be it large or small, I can consider all phones as "ugly" then, by using that nonsense bu-s**t logic of ignorants like you.
Hope you have a nice day, if that thing does really exist in your place. Lol.
Anonymous, 16 Aug 2017still with those unergonomic design huh sony? stay losing thenLosing ONLY BECAUSE of design. Makes sense - explains how an iPhone 7 Plus sells very well. Congratulations for the stupid logic, as much as you are. Lol.
Anonymous, 16 Aug 2017Bezels still smaller than on the iphone.thats why both of them are ugly
xXENDER FREAKXx, 16 Aug 2017Haters gonna hate u know. The bezels of the smartphone make the smartphone look much more toug... moremore bezel more protection to the screen?? hell no!!! i have a sony Z3 two years ago, the screen cracked on the first drop from 40 cm height...
First let me state the negative part, looks like the bezel still not reduced, i mean reduced not completely bezelless
With that out of the way, it seem sony has fixed the caveat previous xz has, for starter, the NFC that been complained by a lot of people (reviewer included) because of it awkward location had been moved to the more common place(back) also, there's no more plastic go cover the antena, and the volume button, finally is higher
