Anonymous, 16 Jun 2018Exactly, "bezelless" is 100% screen to body ratio. This is not even close. We already crossed the 90% mark with Nex... so what stops us from reaching 100%?
Based on the blueprint, it doesn't look very appealing. The Vivo is on a whole another level to this. Let's wait for official images though...

I really don't understand why so many manufacturers are calling their phones "bezeless" while they still have bezels, they should call them small bezels or minimal bezels, the closest to bezeless is Vivo Apex, Nex.
I'm not saying I don't like bezels on a phone, it's always nice to have some when you hold it in landscape, but they should stop calling these "bezeless"...

Huge chin. Unnecessary notch. Think I'll pass
After living about 2 months with a notch phone... I have to say the beast isn't as bad as described. You can easily just use mods from XDA developers. (There are universal packets that hides notch to a smart bezel on nearly 95% of the cases) plus, I am glad there's a chin. It allows me as a gamer girl to hold my phone rather comfortably when using such a device horizontally (something that I CAN'T DO on the iPhone X I have)
So to all notch haters, while I agree it can be annoying at first. Just go to XDA developers, grab a notch hider script, and get a fųcking life! That notch may remain for quite a long time until apple finds a decent solution.

abigfanoftechs, 16 Jun 2018Another Lolnovo crap incoming! Nubia and Lienovo are not even relevant.
Another Lolnovo crap incoming!
Guys scale back on your assumptions. You don't want GSMArena to publish a rant like they did with the Z5.
Or at least learn to appreciate the convenience of the Progressive bezels tech Lenovo probably shared with Nubia and other Chinese OEMs
Instead of a front facing camera there could be a small screen on the back making it possible to use the main back camera for selfies and Skype..., and the fingerprint scanner could be under this screen on the back of the phone! This would make a truly bezel free front screen possible!
skimminstones, 16 Jun 2018phone manufacturers really need to understand the term 'bezeless' better. That means a blend of Nex's Top with iPhone X's Bottom, just way more well designed?
Vic4BBM, 16 Jun 2018Funny. If not iPhone X, then Essential phone notch. Still they are copycats. Technically it wo... moreWell if it would be something 5 inch screen then it's different story, but mostly they go with 6 inch and bigger.
I would want to have a bezeless phone that is compact or low on bezels on top and bottom but needs to be something 5mm on top and bottom and screen something maximum 5 inch so it would be compact and you can use it with one hand without support of your other hand.
But well i am happy with my redmi note 5 right now that is huge but still ok.
I had Mi mix like and to hold it sideways then it wasnt comfortable when one one side you need to have your thumb more over the edge then other side.
phone manufacturers really need to understand the term 'bezeless' better.
Mix 2 is better
This is more believable. But can we stop calling these bezel-less now that NEX is out? Let's called them something else (e.g. low-level, or reduced-bezel).
