At least the back doesn't resemble the iPhone.

It looks nothing like the iPhone from any angle. ANY. Sony's phone designs are one of the best but still very different from Apple.

Sony designs are one of the best? What? Please explain why a mono colored rectangle is a top design? There is nothing in the external design of this phone that screams wow.

Even for me that I don't have a big problem with bezels. If the bezels were a bit smaller and the corners a bit rounder, it would be the most beautiful phone for me. I love the glass back and the aluminium frame which is sandblasted and then polished on the profiles. I'll have to see it in real and see if I can live with the bezels.

Yh wish it was more curvy, the squared off design looks nice but really isn't ergonomic to the hand and makes phone feel even bigger than they are and with the big bezels which I can't stand , it will probably frei even bigger.

I think there's a fat bezel competition between Sony and nokia.

I think that you should do some workout
maybe your sissy hands would benefit from it.

Very mature....blame it on the consumer not on the OEM for creating such hideously large bezels !

Its like Apple way of saying 'you are holding it wrong'!

for you it's hideous...for me a bit of bezel is not a big deal.
Don't push with apple. You're pushing it too far.

Typical poopsung clown. What about the gigantic bezel on Galaxy s4 compared to Sony Xperia ZL? And S4 has a smaller screen on a bigger surface area- LMAO. Samsung is leading the bezel game with S4 and S4 active.

At least Nokia fills up their fat bezels with physical buttons. Huge bezel + on-screen buttons = the worst of both worlds...

Still very interested in the handset, hope it makes its way to all carriers. Samsung, Moto, LG, and HTC all now have a major presence in the US smartphone landscape.

I agree that it would look much better with smaller bezels.

Tell me whats your feeling about PLASTIC??
don't you think having a big bezel is much more tolerable than experiencing a cheap feeling??
P.S: im talking about flagships

In the 90's we had laptops with 7" screen fit into a 14" bezel. Lets go back to the good old times. lol

That’s some huge bezels !

I don’t want people coming up to me and say, 'is that a HTC i1 (or whatever the name it) in your pocket or you're just too excited to see me' :)
