Anonymous, 08 Dec 2017Oh, wow. Even modern looking xperias have giant bezels (by comparison). Lol Sony...So how exactly do you describe the Pixel 2/2 XL and U11+??
dtox, 08 Dec 2017Good design is timeless and functional. Theirs is neither. I have taken plenty by the way, I a... moreOo... So the edge design of samsung and botyom bezel design of xiaomi is functional isn't it? Cause it not Sony
If this is the level of innovation by a Japanese company, I have nothing else to say. One looks weird and another one looks outright copied the stereotype chinese phone and iphone-ish. I expect something more like Sharp Aquos level of innovation; ahead of its time. Not this stupidly predictable design.
The history shows that every leaks from China is fake...
Fake or not! Right image looks good and better than current Xperia (Z,X or XZ series)
Bezel less are welcome, prevent from lcd crack more importantly. Samsung s3 was famous case user crying for easy crack even low range drop.
Sony Die Hard Fan, 08 Dec 2017Please Sony don't follow the trend, 18:9 screen ratio and bezeless are just OEM's Gimmick , m... moreWe can skip this if we don't like the short-trends, let you know Xperia is very durable and long lasting, even the trends is pass our phone will still going strong and smooth!
Sony Die Hard Fan, 08 Dec 2017tell me what are the benefits for 18:9 ratio screen? the bezeless design? Larger screen in smaller device?
Look at that Bezels-
Oh wait~ that's not the reason anymore. Boo to anti-Sony
Why? And if they do go that route they better step up the rest of their game.
Cause they will flop just as bad if not.

m... moreWhy are all you bias fanboys the same??
I dont want Sony to go that route entirely either. However it does not make it a gimmick just because its not your preference.
Please Sony don't follow the trend, 18:9 screen ratio and bezeless are just OEM's Gimmick ,
many sonyfanboys will be sad because there will be no more originality from Sony,
TBH uniqueness of a device plays an important role, especially most phones are just iphone clone.
Anonymous, 08 Dec 2017Iphone x is the ugliest thing ever... I can't stand iPhone, but still think they look better than an Xperia, and that's saying a lot. Sony will be out of business soon anyway, they're almost there now.
dtox, 08 Dec 2017Really? Lol they have the worst design in Mobile right nowIphone x is the ugliest thing ever...

AnonD-507364, 08 Dec 2017In terms of smoothness, HTC is still the king with HTC SenseThey are still around! Wow!!
Design is not meant to be all about looks,ease of use is pretty high up on the ist as well,no good having a nice looking phone if it's a pig to use or even worse,some poxy designer has picked something like glass back solely cos it looks good and doesn't care that folk will drop the stupid thing far more often.
Glass backs are horrible if you have to wear gloves,almost impossible to grip properly and most phones being so thin that they bend doesn't help with handleing them.
We all coped perfectly well with 20mm thick phones just a few years ago,imagine the size of battery that could be fitted into a 20mm thick phone ?
And with some expansion room for battery swell,eh Samsung.
What a stupid position to "design" yourself into,having to have very precise,accurate and therefore more expensive battery manufacture or the phone blows up/catches fire after a few charges !! Clever design move that was..
