The bezel-less display is not the richest when compared to iPhone X and Galaxy S9 but It is gorgeous enough. The bottom bezel is the biggest as It houses the fingerprint sensor. It doesn’t really add to the modern appeal but yeah it does make the operation of smartphone quite easy and ergonomic. The device has a new, refreshing look and It is very pleasing.
