And iPhone XS that came out a year later is still this fat.
But luckily they have GSM to fatten up the competition too. I mean they count almost 4mm on the Mi MIX 2 when the phone's side bezels are less than 2mm. Good job measuring there lol. I guess they were measuring the rounded sides of the phone too which obviously don't count towards the screen's bezel widths.
iPhone X different thickness bezels are made so because of optics, here's an article about this: https://learn.scannerlicker.net/2014/10/25/the-art-of-eyeballing-iv-the-stroke-optics/
TLDR: Horizontal lines appear thicker than vertical even though technically they are the same thickness, so you have to optically correct it, that means making horizontal lines slightly thinner than vertical.

AnonD-711468, 11 Nov 2017Width does not affect where a phone would fit. Length is and thickness (secondarily).
S8 is... moreQuestion, are you are a girl? Or you just like wearing slim jeans, because i can fit a 5.5" bezelicious phone(xz premium) in my pocket and s8 is small(standard) to me
Ps note: I'm a guy that at the small side
They probably don't wanna make bezel too thin because the screen would have to be curved, Apple wants to keep the display not distorted and totally flat.
L0lip0p, 11 Nov 2017Yup but not that much wider, thats important

S8 is as big/tall as a phablet, it does not fit in many clothes of mine. S8 completely destroyed pocketability (140mm or close should be the max length, from that point onwards exponentially less clothing would fit your phone).
AnonD-711468, 10 Nov 2017It's incredibly bigger.

Also 150 is not that tall, just compare it to like moto x4, redmi 4, xperia x, pixel 2, huawei p10, all this is well in 142-145, considering s8 is only 148.9 something, but rather tall(that's for sure) but when it come to bezelless phone, it's one of the most smallest of the bunch, since other is like 6" with exceptions of ipX
L0lip0p, 10 Nov 2017Nope, has the s8 in person, and don't let the diagnol and measurements fool you, its not much ... moreIt's incredibly bigger.
S4 (last 5 incher from samsung) had 136mm height and could fit to most of my clothes.
S8 is as tall as a note (~150mm). Only pants with deep pockets can fit it. It is the biggest Samsung phone produced by far. Like I said they only make phablets these days, which is why I transitioned away from them...
Fusion, 07 Nov 2017Hi Laci..You're obsessed with Apple like the rest of the Android community..Have a great day..Yesterday I was playing a little bit with the i10 at an official Apple shop, and I didn't believe my eyes: the phone was half of the time laggy like hell! I tried to slide pictures, and a bigger informational panel, that was packed with dozens of things, and sometimes it was lagging continously while sliding down that long pagea (or just the pics). Didn't try the web, or anything else, but that performance hit me like a stone.
Maybe it needed a software update or whatever, but it was painful.
The horns are ugly, but I suppose, one can get used to it fairly quickly. Bezels are thick, but one can't expect a company to excel on a field where it was always the last. The placing (bulging) of the dual camera on the back is terrible, but then again: you have to get used to it.
The opening process of the phone with Face ID is lengthy (complicated) and thus UNUSABLE.
Though, at long last they've managed to copy the most important things from their competitors after so many years! So if Apple cut the price of their gadets in half, one could take into consideration buying them, then they would have a good price/perfomance ratio. But of course I couldn't use a phone, on which there's virtually no quick and simple option for locking and unlocking it.
Also the 74 hrs endurance rating is bothersome, I like phones that are rated above 90 hrs much more, and with always-on fingerprint scanners.
Still can't understand how on Earth can it happen, that the most important back button sits at the most unreachable upper left corner in ios :D???
I hoped, that I could persuade you to sell your phone with my passionate words, but I'm sure, you know exactly what you have on your hands, so good luck with the phone!
AnonD-711468, 08 Nov 2017S8 is far bigger than that. It has the same height as Note phones traditional had (150mm). It ... moreNope, has the s8 in person, and don't let the diagnol and measurements fool you, its not much bigger than a 5", mybe a tad but not much
Why should they mention the Essential Phone? Has that phone sold more than a few hundred pieces yet? They don't even list the brand under the All Brands link.
Striker, 08 Nov 2017Because, my friend - BMW is made in Turkey, Belgium, UK, Germany and USA. Whose credit for the... moreI don't know how about yours... but the last BMW I had was made in Germany. I believe US ones are made in Mexico... that is your problem, but here in EU it is made in Germany. Secondly, you mixing-up 2 things, regardless where BMW is made, be that in Germany or Turkey it is made in BMW factory which adheres to BMW standards and design, not in Fiat or Peugeot factory. For this reason design of the screen credits goes solely to Samsung... crapple have no "know-how" to be able to design OLED screen they just barely orders screens from Samsung, Samsung designs screens based on requirements and manufactures it. Furthermore, Samsung OLED screens are not cheap... it actually costs fortune for crapple. This is the reason why they have to sell iPhone X for $1000... because screen in iPhone 8 costs maybe 40$, whereas one in X made by Samsung costs maybe $200. I would agree that rest of the phone is made on cheap by chinese, but not the screens.. and I guess not the camera which is from Sony.
Nice comparison, but you forgot to include the Essential PH-1. Where's the Essential Phone?
Mree, 08 Nov 2017Some people here are pathetic. Going all the way out to defend another manufacturer? LOL. I ho... moreBless your soul u took the words from my mouth! These famboys live their lives defending the brand as if their life depends on it. People buy whatever phone they feel like purchasing. Like u said. It's their money.
"As you may have noticed, we didnÂ’t include the Galaxy flagships as their curved screens are difficult to measure but also exacerbate the accidental touch issue."
Um.... this is 1000000000% bias on the authors behalf. This article has absolutely nothing to do with "accidental touch issues". If you want to touch on that (pun intended), then write a separate article. The fact is the bezel on the sides are NON-EXISTENT because there IS no bezel.
