Would you rather have front-firing stereo speakers or super-slim bezels all around?
Google went full-on defiant with the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL and chose to have phones that feature a bit of a “chin” and “forehead” but gave its customers full-fledged, front-firing stereo speakers. Presumably, this makes for a better, more immersive viewing or gaming experience.
Manufacturers that choose to do away with their phones’ bottom bezel stick to a different scenario — the bottom-firing speaker is treated as a “woofer”, with pronounced bass and mids, while the earpiece is more of a tweeter, with the thinner details coming out. When holding such a phone, a slight imbalance in audio can be perceived.
In your day-to-day use, which of these do you feel is more important to you? Proper, balanced stereo, or all-around thin bezels for a more compact, futuristic-looking handset?
Would you rather have front-firing stereo speakers or sacrifice them for no "chin" and "forehead" on your phone?
