Horrible trend. Of course, always the crap things are popular. If something is crap, it becomes popular, and the good things are unpopular, not appreciated. It's true for everything, for example smartphones, music, ...
95% screen to body ratio, 0% support and updates....
No more Lenovo for me...

Hard in practice only because manufacturers haven't had much practice with underscreen components. It should not be much different than under-the-bezel components though, it would not need cutouts either given that oleds can be transparent these days (when off).
So the tech is here, the practice is not.
Once we have that *and* a shatter resistant material you'd see all phones to be 100% screen. And the next step is ... actually ... tablets. The best device ever existed, a bit of how they are protrayed in westworld. Phones than can be expanded in tablet form and then back in phone mode.

With a bit of ingenuity it's probably possible to place a half decent selfie cam behind that already today. The tricky part would be to make the cameras and other sensors equally "flush" with the rest of the the backplate when you don't use it. Combining polarised filters and a bit of smoke and mirrors ought to fix that.
I predict we'll already see phones this year with all sensors and a (mediocre) selfie cam behind a phone display.
so either a bottom bar to replace the top bar with oddly placed camera, etc, or a pop up camera and chin. Either way I think it is going to be hard to create the truly all screen phone without a pop up camera of some sort.
Unbelievable a phone without a notch who would have thought one can make a phone without a notch this would have to be a first being every other android manufacturer has copied Apple iPhone x.this looks fantastic by the way 95% screen is amazing
Anonymous, 09 May 2018Silly question, as full screen literally means 100% screen. 100% = full.Samsung use infinity screen but it's not even close to infinity has black bars top and bottom Lenovo at least 95% screen closer to infinity than Samsung .
AnonD-744321, 08 May 2018way are you so sure about the notch?Sorry! I was too overhyped (and hated) the Notch these days.

makes me bored looking at their phones.

The article haven't mentioned any notches, though it didn't mention how the bottom bezel will be implemented. What we know is that top and sides will be "bezelless". To know the rest we need the phone to be publicly launched, not just make our own speculations.
Silly question, as full screen literally means 100% screen. 100% = full.
I have had the K3 Note and K4 Note. Now with the Mi Max 2, for the new offering, to go one up over Redmi note 5 they better have atleast 6" display with good width 78/80mm (narrow phs are passe), USB C, 3 card slots, min 4k mAhms battery, NFC, corner back camera location, Android Orio, SD635, adding splash coating & stereo speakers would be great bonuses!!
Predicting that this one will be having a notched screen "cyclops" like the Essential Phone and having a Piezo-electric speaker like the Xiaomi Mi Mix.
