Still quite a bit of bezel, and none of what I wanted in it. This is a nice device, and a definite pass. What a letdown.

Yes, because the fate of Apple and the smartphone market is in the hands of one individual. Newsflash, Apple will still be around.

LMAOOOOO! I see where you're trying to take this. My point stands, and you have the floor. Bye bye.

Why don't you try getting a clue first before you try to take digs at me.

Still quite a bit of bezel? Looks like the front is almost all screen to me.

Guess you don’t see the near half centimetre bezel around the phone?

The screen covers more than 80% of the front of the phone. What more do you want?

Impractical to use. They could easily provide 3d touch home button like Samsung. The whole display is 3d touch but home button isn't 3d touch.

Can I customize the buttons and the gestures? Would be cool to do that.

Double tap the recent apps button to switch between recent apps...Android...
Swipe left or right at the bottom to switch between recent apps... iPhone X

Hold down the side button to launch Siri...
Press the dedicated bixby button on S8 Note 8...

press the side button to unlock... Double click to Apple Pay... Hold to Siri... iPhone X
Do all these three action on Honor 8 Power button on the back which also doubles as a fingerprint sensor, even customize the actions..

The article says the gestures are easy to get used to yet they haven't even used the phone... Making assumptions....

Wireless charging, Quick Charge, All glass design,, Bezel Less display,,, Multitasking... Welcome to the party....

Pretty sure a lot of people won't find those gestures intuitive at all. Pretty sure Apple will have a quick tour of those gestures at the installation of your phone, non-techies will need it.

I really like what they did with the gestures. Android will follow soon, I guess.

A lot of gestures are already there, especially in popular launchers like Nova and Apex.

The front design looks amazing but I hate the way they fit the rear cameras in. I hate all phones with camera bump!!! Actually, I don't like Chinese branches because of their OS with backdoors (which is required by Chinese laws) but their designs are really great. I wish LG, Samsung, Sony, Apple would build their phones with Chinese style designs :)
