Unfortunatelly china only... Besides I just doubt the call reception sound quality would be good enough

I will settle with the xiaomi galaxy note7 eh mi note 2 instead although I'll continue to eye the mix.

How the heck do you hold the phone with out inadvertently touching or activating something you don't want.

Phone quality ability would seem compromised too.

Phone looks good. I am sure that when Apple or Samsung go edge to edge people will make holding it work. Id like to completely see the front of the face be covered in the screen. There would have to be some way to hide the mic and camera behind the screen though and still make them functional.

This made me think about something when I saw it yesterday... Why do we talk with the glass to our face in the first place? Why couldn't the mic and earpiece be on the back side of the phone, and we talk into that? Only thing I can think is the camera bump, but eliminate that and make the back completely smooth, could work well.

I think its just been tradition and the natural rotation of your hand when you are holding the phone to put it your face. You would have to use 2 hands to flip the phone to talk on the back side if needed. Same thing to glance at your phone while you are on it.

I just tested the motion, wouldn't need any hand flips, you dial the number, hit talk, and putting the back of the phone to your ear seems pretty natural, very direct, at least how I hold the phone when I hit talk. When you talk with the screen towards your face you do have to flip the phone, or at least, I do.

I don't get the point of no bezel. You'd hardly be able to hold the phone without hitting something. You can even see that in the video where they already had it propped hanging off the edge and he still very carefully picked it up.

Also, turning the phone around seems like a strange idea. It just makes the user have more motions if they want to manipulate the screen or see who's calling. You have to juggle the phone to dial and then flip it back around. Right now, I can do it all simply wig one hand. Also, it disables the screen when your ear is next to it anyway, so it's completely irrelevant IMO.

It's not irrelevant if you want to remove the earpiece hole from the screen glass.

I dont see an issue with bezelless as long as 1/8" or slightly more of the screen edge isnt part of the gui. So you can have 5.5" of gui while gaining 6.4" of screen real estate for media and other things. Id like that to be customizable as I want a bigger kb than my 5.5" screen provides (butterfingers when it comes to typing).

That things looks amazing.

MKBHD's overview is pretty solid regarding the device. And expectations are for the next iPhone to have some elements similar to this (ceramic body, thinner bezels, etc.).

It's amazing how large a screen they fit into the same space as an iPhone plus device.

Kyocera removed the mic and earpiece bezels from the front back in like.. 2013.
The technology they use is called "Smart Sonic Transducer"
They have the technology to do it and I will personally attest, it works. I used the Hydro XTRM for a year and liked it till the Qualcomm Chipset killed over 18 days out of warranty.
