If you are a 90s kid, you’d remember PDA devices – the first ever breed of “smartphones”. You’d be surprised to know that not everyone wanted one. First off, they costed a bomb! And secondly, they weren’t exactly great to look at. It was only in 2000s when owning a touchscreen smartphone became an “in” thing, all thanks to Apple and the very first iPhone. Cut to 2018, and we are living in a world where there are more smartphone brands and models than you can count, and practically everybody you know has one. What’s more important to note is that your phone is no longer a utility; it is more like a companion. Not to mention, the ultimate accessory! So you’d like your phone to be just as unique and up-to-date as you are. That’s why going bezel-less is the way to go. In case you haven’t heard, thick bezels around your phone’s precious screen are a thing of the past, and if you want to be on-trend, you gotta have one!
Why buy a bezel-less phone you ask? For starters, that edge-to-edge display is a sure shot head-turner!
A bezel-less phone, with an infinity display, offers you infinite features. Right off the bat, you get a bigger and better screen without the bulk of bezels all around. Say goodbye to phones that look like bricks, and say hello to smart and sleek phones that offer the same large screen experience that fits in the palm of your hand and just as easily in the pocket of your jeans or your favorite party clutch!
When was the last time you were lying in bed, texting your bae or watching your favorite movie and the phone slipped out of your hand and landed right on your face? Trust us, that’s the closest we’ve come to what death might feel like!
This won’t happen to you with a bezel-less phone, ‘cause it’s easy to hold (remember, they’re the same screen size but smaller?), making watching movies and video-calling a delight! Love playing video games? Gaming is more immersive than ever on a bezel-less device for sure!
