And it’s mainly smartphones doing it. Why are smartphone makers so hell-bent on trimming bezels so much they have to remove or hide things that were perfectly functional otherwise? We already have full-screen phones with perfectly functional visible cameras and speakers. The Galaxy S9 was peak smartphone design, it had a full screen with just enough bezel to keep the speaker and camera fully functional.
I don’t see any TVs, laptops, and tablets that rely on gimmicks like these, so why are phones doing it? A screen without a border is like a picture without a frame.
