Huawei tells us how big the Apple iPhone XR bezels really are
When Apple launched the iPhone XS and iPhone XR series, everybody saw that as much as these phones were similar, the more affordable iPhone XR had noticeably bigger bezels all around the screen. But how much bigger are those bezels exactly?

Well, we had to wait for Huawei out of all companies to tell us: the iPhone XR bezel measures exactly 5.1mm, which compares to 4.0mm for the bezel on the iPhone XS Max. While this is a tiny, difference of 1.1mm, in comparative terms it actually works out to be some 27.5% larger than the XS Max bezel.

You might also be surprised to learn that the notch on the iPhone XR is also bigger: it measures 35.1mm versus 34.5mm on the XS Max.

Of course, Huawei brought all this knowledge in slides on stage at its Mate 20 Pro presentation to show us how the new Huawei flagship with its slightly curved display has tinier bezel and while it has a big screen, it feels much more compact than both the iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XR.

Yeah, because Apple has never mentioned other brands in their ads and keynotes ;) Ignorance is bliss in your case.

Apple can't mention other brand in their keynotes, because they're phones are inferior in specs. What stuff they can brag if they show Note 9 in their XS keynote? their smaller battery? lower screen screen resolution? lower screen-to-body ratio?

Hard for you to imagine that to some people, Apple IS the better choice, instead you're so self infatuated that you convinced yourself that your choice is the only choice people should make, or theyre wrong. People don't choose Android because it's better, only because it's cheaper and/or easier to pirate on.

That is one of the most absurd comments I have ever read on this website. People prefer Android because it does more. Android is actually a smartphone platform and not just an application launcher.

Actually he’s right, most people who use android do it because they are forced to, if they can’t afford a premium phone they choose android, I know lots of those cases, and some of them have upgraded to an iPhone the moment they could, you should only see which smartphone is the leader in the premium segment, and it’s not because of android competition and all those reasons you’re all giving all the time, it’s because people prefer iOS when talking about the premium segment of smartphones and tablets, why rich people don’t use android? Do you think those people who really know how to invest their money (because that’s how they got where they are) would choose a worse option for them just because is a trend or something? Do you know any rich people who prefers a Ford instead of a Mercedes or BMW or a luxury car?

You're just plain stupid . I own both the iPhone Xs Max and the S9 plus . Imho the S9 plus is better .

Your opinion < The majority of people’s opinion You can think what you want, but people who decide to buy a premium phone choose the iPhone, the numbers are there, that’s real life, period

Well ppl like you are the reason why the iPhone is hyped to the max, no wonder everyone will choose the iPhone no matter how much better the other manufacturers offers in terms of features, user experience, build quality etc.

It's the cheap android phones that spoil the experience of Android, and ppl pay like 1/3 the price of the iPhone and expect it to match the iPhones performance. No wonder they get annoyed and switch to iPhones assuming even the top end Android experience is as crappy as the low and mid tiers.

It’s not always like that, I know people who switched to the iPhone due to issues with their Samsung GS6 or GS7, you don’t understand that MANY people just look for a phone which does what it is supposed to do well, they don’t look for “features” that they didn’t ask and didn’t ever use, and those people claimed to have a better experience with the iPhone, it’s not like due to the bad experience with low end android they choose the iPhone, it happens in all segments, it’s not so hard to understand and accept this fact, it just happens, period

Seems hard for you to imagine that some people find Android the better choice. It's not just a cheaper option as you insist.

"People don't choose Android because it's better, only because it's cheaper and/or easier to pirate on." That is one of the most retarded statements I've seen on PA in a long time :))

LOL my note 9 costs as much as a Iphone X and it does alot more, like all the reviews said "The only phone worth $1000" Apple fans think Android are peasants :D Then you see Huawei releasing Mate 20 Pro Porsche Edition eclipsing all prices of Iphones :P

Your note 9 is outdated with an old android version and will be irrelevant by the end of this year and probably discounted 80% at the beginning of next year, meanwhile the iPhone 7 will sell more than the note 9, the mate 20 and other android “flagships” combined, and will be supported for more years and will have apps optimized for its hardware while the Note...9. Enjoy it :)

why do you care what phones people use? and outdated? um pretty sure the 845 adreno beats your iphone and mate 20? and 80% drop so by January it better be less than 200$

Yet the old android version can do more than the latest amd greatest IOS. How is your file manager in IOS12 which we had since god knows when?? Im enjoying it very much with the better battery life, sd card slot, audio jack, wirelessly joining my phone to my smart TV, having a fingerprint sensor as well as many other ways of signing in and not reducing them :P Thanks

Lol, are you really mentioning a list of ancient technology which the iPhone can do except the SD card? Are you even making a lame excuse such as old android versions can do more than iOS 12? :))))) One question sweetheart, are you an Indian who can’t afford an iPhone 5S and are using a low end or mid range Samsung? I assume that due to the ignorance in your posts, I couldn’t imagine my life being so miserable I feel pity for you :(

Well if it does depreciate that fast doesn't that mean I have more money to expend than an iPhone user? Cuz I'll be needing to buy phones at premium prices a lot more than an iPhone user. Note 9 will probably sell at half price or lesser while iPhone will probably sell more than that. Which effectively means an iPhone user is poorer than an Android user.

Actually I’ve used more phones than the total underwear you’ve used in your life, I’ve used phones with Symbian, Maemo, windows phone and mobile 10, and android and I got to the conclusion iOS is the best for me, you know, growing up and starting to get the best things in life which money can buy has refined my taste through the years, I overcame that teenager hate towards apple and embraced what really is a premium user experience, it’s not my fault that you all are a bunch of frustrated failures in life who can’t and will never allow yourselves to get the best available out there not only technologically but this applies to other aspects in life

It’s beyond my comprehension how a person who earns really hard his money cleaning toilets makes such a terrible investment buying an android phone that he can only resell at 20 or 15% the original price one year after it was released, but hey, android users are smart :)
