Okay finally the bezels are shrinked:) but haters will be like 'its still so big:('

yeah . even if sony will make bezel-less smartphone the haters will say they are huge

1mm is not something too noteworthy TBH. Its barely noticeable even if you try too hard.
Although any shrinkage is welcome.

Yes, I see! Top bezels could be 1cm shorter... 146cm??? Are you kidding me?

Omnibalance my friend. They need the top and bottom to look equal and there's logo on the top!
13. MrKoles (Posts: 330; Member since: 20 Jan 2013)
I really dont care about Omnibalance if I cant fit it in my pocket!
For a 5,2 incher its way too long and thats it.
Take a look at LG G2...

Narrower, shorter and thinner than the G3, at least. Guess you hate on the G3 too, right? As for the bezel trolls, you presumably realise that this would be considered almost bezelless in comparison to the new iPhone 6!

How about reducing 5mm on both Top and Bottom?? They can shrink the bezels and maintain that omni-balance at the same time, right???

You need to put the internals somewhere, you have two options make up and down bezels larger or make the phone thicker (eg. Sharp Aquos, HTC One M8, LG G3). At the end it's a matter of what you prefer and like.

lies. then do something about those internals placement. its a high end device. make smaller high end component internals.

It has bigger bezels than the M8 and that has front facing speakers.

this one has too, but no grills to show off

Kudos to Sony for managing to fit the same display in a smaller body.

Whoooo Bronze looks sexy! That bezel, reduced!
ps Waiting for Samsung's PA division warrior, PapaSmurf!

i like what they did with the weight and thickness, but i refuse to buy a flagship phone with anything less than QHD anymore.

A statement from an established Samsung warrior?
12. phichart (Posts: 64; Member since: 03 May 2014)
What? Samsung Warrior? Samsung never upgrade a new flagship phone in 6 month!
