LG G3 was supposed to come with even smaller bezels, LG executive says
Yes, once it hits the shelves, the LG G3 will come with a spectacular screen-to-size ratio, but apparently, the maker from the Far East wanted to make the bezels of its 2014 flagship smartphone even smaller. This was revealed by Chul Bae Lee, the VP of LG Mobile's design lab. He claims that he had been constantly urging the engineers to decrease the width of G3's bezels even more, but a number of technical restrictions prevented them from actually meeting Lee's requirement.
Unfortunately for Lee and all of LG's fans out there, the bezels of the G3 just couldn't be made any thinner, as the device would have been pretty frail and it wouldn't have passed LG's build quality control evaluations, especially the four-feet drop test. Additionally, the thin bezels would have required the engineers to use a thicker glass for the display, which has been a no-go either. Thus, a compromise had to be made in the design department.
Chul Bae Lee also revealed why the G3 does not come with a metal body. Apparently, employing this build material would have further increased the thickness of the flagship's bezels. Still, we already know that the LG G3 does contain actual metal, at least in its back cover.
What's your opinion on the matter – do you feel that LG could have stepped up the game of the G3 and fulfilled the dreams of most users by creating a device with subtly smaller bezels? Or do you think that G3 is already among the best smartphones of 2014 and it is perfectly balanced the way it is? Drop a line below and let us know!
