    I've thought the same. Except the rest of that around the cutout is basically just the status bar, so to me it's actually a good use of space.

    As for issues with false touches because of the lack of bezel, I assume that could be handled with palm rejection software. That will probably be conspicuously absent in the first generations of these - despite the fact the tech already exists - so that you're sufficiently annoyed to upgrade when the second gen comes out with palm rejection.

    Would be nice to a 5" bezel-less display that's perfect for one-handed use....but, of course, we'll probably see nothing below 5.7".

    I like the use of space as well... No issues with false touches on my S8+ but I agree technology will improve... Also be nice to see that smaller full screen for those that like smaller phones.. I think that is where Apple going bezeless will help as this upcoming phone is between the current sizes.. Now if they are successful maybe the smaller phone comes out bezeless and more follow...
