iPhone X and V30 have "thick" bezels because you are counting the metal frame protecting the phone on the sides. If you count the screen and not the frame that's curve out X and V30 are much thinner. Note 8, PH-1, Mix 2 ditch the metal protection and just rely on glass to absorb drops.
The best phone so far this year is V30 and iPhone X. I played with a Note 8 at a T-Mobile store yesterday and wasn't impressed. It is just a bigger S8+ with horrible curved screen that bleed lights and difficult to see
all this reason like taller/thiner phone - all screen display - roundness in display's corner are all for make you have a better feel .
it has many other reasons ... like round corner made a die-hard phone like lg g6 opposite s8
in old nokia phone we had 5 : 3 i told that we have many aspect ratio ...
best for camera is 4:3 and for cinema movies is 21:9
the simple one is 1:1
all the phones are between 4:3 to 21:9 for many philosophy recently
average make 16:9 or 2x 1:1 ui and make bigger phone via bezzel-less trend .
think which will you choose ? it's too bad that companies has not same aspect ratio like 16:9 for lg / mi mix / rest phone is a good standard just because they are same 2:1
but apple and Samsung made even taller for reasons.
but the best reasons to standard a ratio should not to be looks good .
the reason should be better in our pocket and Of course in our hands :)
many other can cause feeling well and comfort like Size of phone/display like iphone se or compact series from sony ... and or Round corners that is very bad in my LG k10 it's too sharp like knife LOL , while it was very better in galaxy j7 because more round body.
ALL this reason like make roundness of display in corner. like iPhone X we saw in LG old phones and recently in all screen phones
please add a Aspect Ratio in specs of phone

My phone opens apps 2 nano seconds faster than your phone so it's the best. Get a GF and life please
is the LG V30 best ever phone? it's not as expensive as Note 8 or iPhone X.
the best ratio to screen is for essential phone and SGS8+ .
for " aspect ratio " of display:
mention that screen's ratio for Samsung phone is 18.5 : 9
* for LG - the first phone i think with this ratios - is 18:9 or simply 2:1 - 2x:1 : 1
for mi mix even before lg : it has 17 : 9 to add more efficient screen.
**mi mix 2 same as lg and other phones in mid-range by rest companies
***and apple x ? yes it's new 19.5 : 9 very near to cinema's 21:9
**** common size : 16:9 - an average between 4:3 and 21:9 -
***** we had also 4:3 , 3:2 , 1:1
4:3 for LG Vu series and maybe some older phones , don't know. but i doubt in smartphone
3:2 for iPhone 4s and recently Blackberry keyone due to physical keyboard
Blackberry classic and passport brings 1:1 again because of underneath hardware
16:10 for some tablets . and surface had 16:9 but in surface 3 has 3:2 make it more square like iPad 's 4:3 . this size is better for some jobs like web , 16:9 was better for movie .
there are very common or un-common ratio in old and new devices . thanks to read
Samsung's aspect ratio can give you 2x display of 1:1 which we saw in LG G6
and apple can too when it's better even for movies. but for web squarer is better.
smsg and apple has philosophy of ... * * * mi mix that gives to more active display due to bezzel-less maybe 16:9 make you feel deterioration of old experience . so add 17:9 also gives you feel a real 16:9 with software navigation bar in androids . but apple i don't know officially or un-officially why they put a very tall / tallest ever / in phone ?
except for LG BL40 New Chocolate that had 21:9 ...
maybe apple wants to make a thin UX for one hand ussing and or for Cinema's movies
we have maybe aspect ratio in rest phones especially feature ones if you know something special tell me.

The recent devices from Xiaomi, Oneplus and ZTE are as well made as the flagships from well established companies like Apple and Samsung. Yes the after-sales support of these Chinese companies are crap. But you are paying less than half the price. You really shouldn't ask for more. And they do give updates, they are just very late.

And once you are done, the phone is smart enough to automatically correct the orientation of the picture. This also works in every other Xiaomi phone. Use one, then speak.

It gives a signature look to the iphone. Now you will see many ads with just a picture of the front panel with cutout and you will immediately know it's an iphone. I don't know how on earth you would put mi mix as the best phone. Everyone knows it's a big problem to put the camera at the bottom. It just doesn't work. That's why all the companies still have a little bit at the top to ensure the camera is at the top. To me. It's a bad design to have a cam at the bottom to show off more screen. I know i know the idea of the perfect phone is have all screen. You have to remember that if iphone follows that design they will not have a signature look. This design is good because it puts all the needed sensors and cameras while giving it a signature look. that's my 2 cents.
No it doesn't matter. All that really matter's is how the 6 cores and ram work with ios. As long as I can actually hold the phone and function it 1 handed bezels and resolution over 1080 don't matter. Camera, gps and phone functionality for Web browsing, social media, some games and finding my way around new places. The only thing that matters beyond 1080 resolution for a screen is sunlight legibility. I really hope premium apple delivered as they often do. We wait longer for them but they do it right (face recognition will hopefully encourage others to improve their versions)
Oh God after this explanation now I see the X display as uni brow with horns. Demons 6**!!!...
Good explanation anyhow.

I don't know if you are new to it but that's how the world works. You have to make a product that makes people pay top dollar for it. that's "profit". It's like buying purses. are they really worth thousands? It's called "branding". a successful company can make you pay premium prices for least amount of materials. Stop complaining and start learning from successful companies.

But I want the best quality and performance and like many other lessons in life, There's a saying " if it's to good to be true then it usually is"

Really. And can yoy really notice a difference based on the specs you just mentioned. The so called prenium phones today are just status symbols, a statement of class. The higher the price the more prenium the phone (since only a few or some fanboys/fangirls can afford them).
Did you know an honor 9, axon 9, one plus etc can do 95% of what the so called premium phones can and sometimes better (e.g battery and performance).
My advice is buy according to your budget or better wait an buy one year after the sheeps have moved on to the next best thing ever
