What frameless smartphones can I buy except for the iPhone X?




fashion for “frameless” smartphones began a couple of years ago, and since then such a device has even released Apple – it’s, as you’ve guessed, the iPhone X. Of course, the side frames themselves do not go away (otherwise the display just drops out of the phone), but compared to other smartphones, these gadgets do have minimal frames around the screen. And now the industry has stepped so far that it is possible to become the owner of a “frameless” practically with any budget.

For example, it is cheaper 11 000 rubles buy Honor 7C , which was equipped with a 5.99-inch IPS LCD-display with a resolution of HD + (1440 x 720 pixels) and an aspect ratio of 18: 9, as well as a Snapdragon 450 processor (by the way, the same is installed in Redmi 5). The rear camera here is double (13 MP + 2 MP). The second camera is responsible for the bokeh effect. The front camera in 7C is 8 megapixels, and the display acts as a backlight. One of the main features is unlocking the face. In general, the budget is such an iPhone X, but on Android.

Also an interesting variant of an inexpensive “frameless” smartphone is offered by Asus – its ZenFone Max M1 has a minimum side frame, a 4,000 mAh battery, a 5.5-inch display and a dual camera.

Returning to the brand Honor, it is impossible not to mention Honor 9 Lite . Its glass panels are curved from both sides of the body. The IPS LCD display itself has a diagonal of 5.65 inches, a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and a modest aspect ratio of 18: 9. Honor 9 Lite already has four cameras – two behind and two in front. Dual lenses on 13 and 2 MP support HDR, digital zoom, background blur effect, automatic smile detection and other chips. Next to the main camera is a fingerprint scanner. The model is older – Honor 10 , which received a 5.84-inch display with a resolution of FullHD + and a ratio of 19: 9; IPS technology is used here.

And here Huawei P20 Lite It’s almost a copy of the iPhone X. It’s worth a little more than Honor 9 Lite, but it’s equipped with a 5.84-inch IPS display with a 19: 9 aspect ratio and FullHD + resolution. And the cutout at the top of the screen is.

There are decent inexpensive “frameless” and among smartphones Xiaomi – take the same Redmi 5 Plus . It is equipped with an enlarged up to 6 inches display and an increased battery capacity of 4000 mAh. At the heart of the smartphone is a more productive processor Snapdragon 625 and 3 GB RAM.

By the way, at the price of the same Huawei P20 Lite, you can also take a smartphone from Samsung with minimal side frames – Galaxy A6 2018 . The main feature of the device is a large Super AMOLED-display with an unusual aspect ratio (18.5: 9), a modern version of the operating system and support for NFC. In A6, a single 16-megapixel camera with a f / 1.7 aperture and a frontal one with the same megapixels and f / 1.9.

Do you have flagships?
Of course, smartphones with minimal frames are not only budgetary – manufacturers also offer more expensive smartphones, which, as a rule, are equipped not only with a powerful stuffing, but also with a high-quality display. For example, Asus ZenFone 5Z which, by the way, is the cheapest smartphone with Snapdragon 845. The device has a stylish appearance, a 6.2-inch high-resolution screen and two cameras with support for artificial intelligence technology. The version of the mobile device with six gigabytes of RAM and a 64-gigabyte built-in storage costs almost 36,000 rubles.

But the main rival of the iPhone X – of course, Galaxy S9 . The hardware stuffing of the smartphone consists of 8-core Snapdragon 845 and Exynos 9810 (depending on the geography of deliveries), 4 GB of RAM and 64/128/256 GB of internal storage. The main Galaxy S9 camera, despite its previous resolution of 12 MP, boasts a variable aperture metric (from f / 1.5 to f / 2.4), supports video recording in slo-mo at 960 frames per second and Dual Pixel technology. Plus, the smartphone combines face recognition technology with an iris scanner.

And yes, there’s a 3.5 mm audio jack here.

Editor’s Favorites
Despite the fact that everyone in our editorial iPhone, we often look in the direction of Android-smartphones, choosing which one is the best. And while our favorite is unanimously Huawei P20 Pro . This is an amazing smartphone with a screen diagonal of 6.1 inches (FullHD +), three cameras, the ability to hide the ledge at the top of the screen and triple optical zoom. Another would be to install iOS on it … although if you use this smartphone a bit, there are a lot of similarities to the iPhone interface.
