Looks like we have a winner for the largest bezels of 2017, blew sony out of the water.
but look at all these kids complaining... theres pros and cons in the bezel games, its
good to have a little variety, ya kants...
the ugliest phone in the year. HTC what have u done.... i'm used to be your fans.. but you keep doing this kind of things to hurt us... OH MY EYES... its burn... look at that huge bezel and chin. HTC are u still living in year 2007?
Such an ugly phone with huge bezels and no 3.5 mm jack. HTC management sees the cause of company failing not in themselves and idiotic decisions they make but in customers, market, critics etc. Thinking like that - they would better close the business right away not to waste investor's money.
Seriously HTC design team should be ashamed putting up a phone with such huge bezels in 2017 be it a budget device or not. Many of us have been on HTC's case for their humongous bezels for years. It now seem certain they will go down CLINGING to those HUMONGOUS BEZELS like a life raft. It is really a shame to see all these huge bezel phones from a Company that i held in very high regards...even no name Chinese OEMs are making decent bezel-less phones with huge batteries and cost less.
I hope the rumors are true..Google pls pls buy HTC and get a new progressive design team.
Izzylover, 13 Sep 2017I don't understand what everyone is crying about the bezels. I just traded my G6 for an HTC U ... moreIzzy, I do not remember about screen area value of U Ultra.
There was a comparison between U Ultra, Nexus 6p and G6.
Nexus 6p with 5.7 16:9 has bigger screen area than G6.
Difference is a square 2cm x 2 cm.
Probably G4 has bigger screen too. G5 maybe.
Android One is nice. But a phone without a 3.5 mm headphone jack is not. I hope HTC understands this.
That is one ugly a$$ smartphone.
what the hell are you doing htc?
This is nice, but stock Android should be used on Android One. I'm waiting for HTC 12, and please use that name as the next flagship.
biggest bottom bezels I ever see in the history of new smartphones.
WTF with that huge bottom bezel? This is 2017. Even cheap Chinese phones have less bezel. The Mi A1 looks better every minute.
Can't see htc going with a 6XX chip in a mid range phone. And knowing htc their mid range too will be pricey. Moto x4 is also coming under android one. That would be interesting.
Love the Community, 13 Sep 2017Not really. Android One is usually focused on low to midrange phones just like that similar in... moreWell they need to make an android one version of a flagship or something
OMG, those bezels seems a bit exaggerated. It seems that they come from a retrospective period.
AnonD-510098, 13 Sep 2017Is it a requirement for Android One phones to have big bezels or something?!Not really. Android One is usually focused on low to midrange phones just like that similar initiative almost a decade ago. Those kinds of phones doesn't deserve high risk premiums like bezelless designs.

Sadly actual htc flagships bends too easily and I usually wear my phones in my jeans. I don't want that expensive risk.
I don't understand what everyone is crying about the bezels. I just traded my G6 for an HTC U Ultra and it's so much more worth the money. I don't like phones with small bezels and narrow 18:9 aspect ratios. U Ultra and G6 are both 5.7 inch but the Ultra seems so much bigger it's strange. The display is much wider too. Just watch a youtube comparison. HTC is a very good phone maker, they made the U11 which is 'quietly' even better than S8 and iPhone 7 with camera performance and speed too.
