    Out of proportion with too much top and bottom bezel. Hope it handles accidental side touch rejection well.

    Wow that's stunning. I'd love to see the top bezel reduced by half. I wonder if the light on the bottom is a capacitive button or a physical button. Hopefully it has a fingerprint sensor.

    The front is how a phone should look like IMO, no branding or logo, just nice black. I never understood why Samsung and others plastered a huge name across the front of the phone in large silver letters. Seriously, I know I bought a Samsung phone, I don't need to be reminded and the guy next to me isn't going to buy it because he saw the Samsung logo. Apple gets this, which is why even though I can't stand their OS I just love their hardware.

    Would love to have a black band around it instead of silver, make it black on black stealthy. $564 I'll definitely consider this one when it comes around.

    No question Apple has unnecessarily huge bezels. This is much closer to where bezels need to be but may be just a tad too thin.

    I wish they had it on GSM, I'd take it in a second as well.

    I have seen that announcement months ago but I actually haven't seen it yet in person.
    ZTE has a small kiosk near the mall I go through almost every day.

    For years, I thought Chinese brands were a joke. And for alot of them, they still are. Two years ago, I didn't even know what Xiaomi was yet. Maybe towards late-2013 is when someone posting their sales here. Now look at Xiaomi. Look at my avatar. I think of them very highly of them even if they tend to have the Apple copycat trait at times that so many Asian OEM's possess. Years ago, I assumed Huawei was a joke too. Same with ZTE. Then the ZMAX came out and ZTE doesn't solely rely on MediaTek as they use Snapdragons too.

    Chinese brands are generally misses over hits. But once you find a really good one, it can truly be VALUE to you. Alot of the diamonds in the rough, needle in a haystack-type of Asian phones out there.

    The edge to edge glass is nice for the sides of the phone. But did you see those huge bezels in the top and bottom?
    Not a bad looking phone. I prefer the rear camera to be in the center. It makes more sense when taking pictures.
