Why waste screen space! I don't like it when so much space at the top and bottom are devoted to .. nothing.

ah well they need space for the speaker and the camera there :confused:motorola is expected to launch a new smartphone in the coming days with minimum bezel. let's hope the rumors are true! someone has to do something about the bezel. though smaller bezel would suck for screenguards and covers. some covers already are damaging the corners of the screenguards!

lol. desire seems to have too much bezel at the bottom. in any case, two devices with different internals cannot be compared. htc probably had a good reason for the bezel at the top. as for screenguards. i had rather have a device that can handle a couple of drops than a device that i can showoff to people :)

And that's the sad truth of these devices. I have read so many cases of cracked screens on the iPhone, Note and S3, and how much it costs to replace - almost a mid range phone can be bought with that amount.

you mean the black space between the time and the first tile?
That is there in all WP7 phones :(

But it is set to go with WP8 and WP7.8.
