    Lots of iPhone 8 rumors point to a bezel-less design on the horizon. While I see the appeal nothing but screen on the front of an iPhone I also see an argument for having some slight bezel. For instance, it seems like the bezel makes things like holding the phone and using a case easier. What are your thoughts about a bezel-less design?

    Based on what I've seen from both iPhone renders and a hands on with with Galaxy S8 and the infinity screen I'm looking forward to having a bezel-less device.

    However, I'd also like to be able to add a case without obstructing the screen so I'm hoping there is a nice way to have both.
    Perhaps as you have said, a very tiny one

    I don't care much about bezels or no bezels. But it's a given there has to be some changes in design.

    I prefer a bezel. Too easy to break, otherwise, and I strongly dislike the glare on the edges of the Samsung S8.

    It doesn't have to be bezel-less for me. Just needs less bezels. I see it primarily for reducing the footprint of the Plus model.

    In my opinion, the bezel are more of an issue on the white faceplate than on the black ones. With that in mind, is Apple willing to sacrifice its white faceplates for an edge to edge / bezel-less display? I'm fine with whatever Apple goes with in regard to bezels...

    I don't mind some bezels because when I'm gaming the way I hold phone I'm not covering any screen real estate. One thing I know for sure though is I hope they don't come out with the stupid 18.5 by 9 screen resolution on the S8 and S8+ having tested it on the Samsung reps phone anything I opened up had a lot of black borders and when I selected to stretch the video it cuts off some of the video.

    I think it's important to have some bezels in the right places. For example, when you look at the Mi Mix, it gave up that earphone speaker & front camera and replaced it with screen.

    While you can still make calls, it doesn't sound as good and you can also take selfies but it's at the bottom of the phone. So for me, that would be a downgrade and not worth it.

    I think if Apple just made their top and bottom bezels a little smaller, I would be a happy customer. No need to be extreme with the bezel cutting.

    I don't mind the bezel at all. I am pleased with the design on the 7 plus. It works well for me.

    So many rumors. So much speculation. If the latest is true you'll be able to choose if you want a bezel or not. Apparently lots of signs pointing to a usual 7s and 7s Plus, and 3rd device being the Anniversary iteration. 7s and 7s Plus would have some changes while the iPhone 8, Pro, X or whatever they call it will be the one with no bezel and all the bells and whistles. Price point has been said as much as $1099 USD to start. Again all speculation...for me I'm down the middle. I'm okay with the bezel as is but wouldn't be opposed to change
