They just don't know basic physics, the larger bezel can withstand more impact, so the screen don't break as easily.

Nope but you are a known clueless HTC lover. That much everyone knows.

Looks like a giant HTC One. No one seems to be going in the right direction this year but that is to be expected from HTC.

Because your bezel obsession is getting psychotic. So many of your posts are about bezel size... As if 5-6mm more in your pocket will make any difference...

HTC and Sony are notoriously bad for having bezels unnecessarily thick. For all your ushering of their designs; their design is lazy and poorly drafted. It takes good R&D to produce a phone with a good ergonomic and practical design. Sony and HTC would rather skip that part; albeit; I'll give HTC credit for the speakers.

Your design description screams Samsung and not Sony and HTC, yes thin bezels are visually appealing but i'd rather have a large battery than thin bezels, to each their own, btw the One is very ergonomic and fits in the hand perfectly thanks to the curved back.

1. Sony Xperia Z2 has also meanwhile stereo speakers. Wanna give them some credit too? 2. Bezels contain components that otherwise would occupy space directly behind the screen and make the phone thick. It's really between either long or thick. After the rather bezely Galaxy S5, there is only one relaively new phone with really thin bezels, the G2 which is thicker of them all and has smallest camera sensor... There are no magical solutions...

Actually the G2 has the same bezels as all other flagships. They have this fake trim around the glass, then you get the black bezel covering the screen. My wife had the white G2, and I could clearly see the deception in those not so thin bezels.

So Taters, how do you like the HUGE size increase over the 0,1" screen increase on the S5 with extra large bezels?

Samsung dropped the ball big time but I have no problem admitting when they suck unlike you and your HTC homies....

SO SONY IS TAKING THE CAKE THIS YEAR...NICE

I disagree because the Z2 is almost the same size as the Note 3 so Sony is probably last place. It doesn't mean much this year though because the ancient Nexus 5 and G2 are both superior to this years number 1 still.

For Taters size does matter. :-)) Sorry dude, nothing personal but come on, bezels are not the only thing to look on a smartphone. Give us a break, I implore you!

It is closer to the size of the S5 than it is of the Note 3, does that mean the S5 is almost the same size as the Note 3?

72. Taters

Posts: 6474; Member since: Jan 28, 2013

No because the Z2 is closer to the Note 3 than GS5. I even posted a video in the other thread that clearly shows this....

Note 3 Dimensions: 151.2 x 79.2 x 8.3 - 5.7" display/1080x1920/386 ppi - 168g Sony Z2 Dimensions: 146.8 x 73.3 x 8.2 - 5.2" display/1080x1920/424 ppi - 158g Galaxy S5 Dimensions: 142.0 x 72.5 x 8.1 - 5.1" display/1080x1920/424 ppi - 145g Now, is it slightly closer in height to the Note 3 than it is to the S5? Yes, but that doesn't impact how easy it is to hold or use with 1 hand. What matters for that is width, which it is only slightly wider than the S5 for, and much slimmer than the Note 3. All in all, its dimensions are much closer to the S5 than the Note 3. But...you know, dont let reality get in your way, right? ;)

Meant 432 ppi for the S5*

Only a Sony lover will say width matters more than height and thickness. Pocket ability is very much in line with height but of course you will choose to ignore that... Check out the weight too. Way too close to the Note weight which is also an important parameter.

I'm not a Sony lover, I have an iPhone and am planning to pick up the next Moto X/Nexus (unless they release the Sony on Sprint, in which case I will consider it) and iPhone. And width definitely matters more for usability than height, I think most people will agree with me on that. The thickness leaves the Sony phone .1 thinner than the Note 3 and .1 thicker than the S5....none of those phones are thick, so I don't know why you are bringing it up or what you are trying to get at there.... And the weight is again in between the Note 3 and S5, almost exactly so. I like a phone with a little bit a of heft anyhow, a few grams isnt going to tire me...but it makes the phone seem more substantial/ better built (to me). You really think the 4mm the S5 has on the Sony makes it that much more pocketable? I can always get pants/jeans/shorts with bigger pockets, and for much of the fall/winter/spring I wear some type of jacket that has pockets plenty big. I cant get bigger hands to operate a device (though my hands are big anyways, so the Note isn't unreasonable for me).

I don't think this would be worth upgrading from a HTC one. Maybe ill wait for nexus 6 or lg

I don't like AT ALL the upper speaker compared to the one below. Why did they do that?? That's ugly as sh*t!

if you look closely at the picture it looks like they're testing it for tmobile

I can confirm this is 100% true. That's all I'm going to say on the matter.

the bottom black stripe with the HTC logo really hurts the phone design. it should not be there at all and instead it need to be a part of the display. very bad decision.

100% agree. Let's hope that premium S5, Z3 or G3 will be better. My contract ends in October :)

None of the pics for HTC M8 at the back is showing beats audio logo?
