Or then people really buy their clothes without checking the pocket-sizes too, that's one thing I always check for practicality.

The only reason that I've bought MiMix (the phone that started the current craze) was *practical* reasons. Get it in your head.
To this day MiMix is the only pocketable ~6.5 inch phone .... Maybe bezeless does play a *functional* role after all...
Anonymous, 30 Sep 2017It doesn't kill it for me. Those bezels can fit better speakers, a bigger battery and as you c... moreNope MiMix had far smaller bezels and a 4400 MaH battery.
You can get a better battery by making the phone slightly thicker. No need to make it uncofmortably tall...
Also the rest of those you described only need minimal bezels...
It's merely an excuse for their shortcomings... Pixel 2 won't sell, like Pixel 1 didn't ... Google has either to become modern looking or face extinction...
Skankhunt42, 30 Sep 2017Then get the Pixel 2 XL, problem solved.Oh, that one still has the bezel-less design? That's good, I was always into big phones. I'll have to see when I'm going to upgrade from Huawei Mate 9 in about 1,5 years from now.
looks like the Pixel2xl is wider, but the pixel2 is taller because of the big bezels.
Until now, on android side, we had same OS, and same cpu, and same amount of RAM for the flagship
Now we start to have the same design as well...lg g6, v30, pixel 2 xl, s8, note 8, huawei...
So now, i pick just the brand name, thats all...
Only interested in camera and concerned about this eSIM-things and availability.
If you want small bezels to show off to your friends for aesthetic reasons get the XL. If you want something useful for functionality get the normal one, and you get HTC's Edge Sense features.
Google once gain proving they are better at software than designing hardware.
Pixel 2 massive bezels & pathetic low battery from 2015. The Pixel 2 xl phone di,entices too big.
So this means no Pixels for me, as long as this idiotic huge bezels -design keeps happening. It's not 2014 anymore, Google. Even the ancient Nexus 6 had smaller bezels.
If it gonna cost 649 and have those besels, it is gonna be very bad, since technically it almost a copy of mi6 for about 350. Hell, i would better buy honor 9 for even smaller price if i wanted compact flagship phone.

Pixel 2 with the same exact things except a more energy efficient 1080p AMOLED display SHOULD do way better.
2700mAh for the regular Pixel 2? Definitely gonna have mediocre battery life, possibly even worse than an iPhone. They should have made it at least 3000mAh or higher.
