    Hmmm if you like the Sharp phone, maybe you should get that. I doubt the BB will be exactly like that anyway....

    Would be nice if they do us the favor of reducing the size of bezels to increase the size of the display

    I am very happy with the BB 10 OS. Android is not for me

    There is no mention of OS, purely talking about hardware here.

    Yup you are right. But what good is the hardware without a good OS

    I like the edge less part aloot!

    But correct me if I'm wrong is the front facing cam at the bottom of the phone?

    I just read the article, it says the phone is running android kit kat.. they moved all the usual sensors and camera to the bottom bezel of the phone, so all they did was push the screen up and make a massive bottom bezel... looks kinda silly to me

    I think when most of us think of full screen minimal frame, we don't envision a giant silver bezel at the bottom of the phone

    Bezels prevent accidental taps on touch screen while holding the phone.

    I agree. Personally if the front facing camera were to disappear from phones all together you'd get no argument from me. That would have allowed them to keep the receiver and sensors at the top and reduce the giant bottom bezel.

    I can't help but think that the phone looks upside down somehow.

    The sharp phone looks alright. That bottom bezel is way to massive and makes the phone look silly.

    Personally the z30's top bezel is perfect. Maybe the bottom bezel can be slightly reduced.

    Now the z10 was nice but had too much all over. If there's an updated version of the z10 coming out sometime in the near future reduce the bezels and or make the screen a bit bigger.

    Doesn't really appeal to me to be honest. BlackBerry is way better when it comes to the design of their upcoming phones.

    ... and I'd never buy a Sharp phone.

    That picture isn't as striking as some out there, which totally justify the name Crystal. Extremely sharp looking phone, although I don't know how practical it will be. Not really top specs but also less than $240 off contract, IIRC.

    ETA: blasted sharp corners, though.

    Sorry guys that phone is ugly. HTC and Samsung have nicer looking phones. Even the Sony Xperia looks better.

    I think it's darn ugly. I want my phone to look good, and for some reason this does not appeal to me. My fav is still M8 with BB10 on it.

    Is that the ear speaker on the bottom too? Does the user have to flip it upside to take a phone call?

    You're also forgetting the fact that in BB10 you need a little more bezel to distinguish between gestures made in an application and overall navigation, such as going to the hub.

    Overall that particular phone doesn't really do anything for me in terms of looks. Yes, there's not that much of a bezel do your front is mainly display, but it's just sort of blah.

    I see the same phone "designers" who hated the Passport are with us again. The phone dimensions are (unofficial) 5.16 x 2.64 x 0.39 inches (131 x 67 x 10 mm). That is the same size as a Z10 ! In real life the phone will look great. It only has a 720 p display though which is no better than the Z30. I am not sure that this design suits the gestures based OS. I would be happy with a Z20 with a 4.7 inch 1080P screen and the same body size as the Z10. I do think this phone will look great in real life as will the Passport.

    I still find it funny that people purchase a phone that looks great and then cover it up in an ugly case anyway.
