To an extent though, anything more and it gets pricey.

Basically materials are a tradeoff: the harder to scratch, the easier to shatter…. The harder to shatter, the easier to scratch. Case in point? Diamonds. Good luck scratching one, but you can turn one into dust with a hammer strike.

Plastic bezels are used to minimize the glass impact, which is why phones with less plastic bezel shatter easier. The best option is something like the RAZR M – normal size bezel, but plastic instead of glass. The worst option is something like the iPhone – zero buffer between the glass and whatever object.

Plus with edge swipes becoming a thing, I wouldn’t mind larger bezels. They’re awkward enough to trigger on my Nexus 4 as is.

Add plexiglass or something around it and it will be fine.

If you look at Apple’s hardware ‘innovation’ over the past several years, its mostly been about miniaturization. While miniaturization is very important, they seem to be more focused on it than anything else. During the last WWDC they intro’d the upcoming Mac Pro which is super small and super powerful and really beat their chest hard in pride at its size and the extreme innovation involved. So when LG shows off this new super-thin display, I picture Apple humping LG’s leg over it.

I slapped a ZeroLemon 7000mah on my S3 and realized how much I like my phone lasting for days. Of course it weighs just under 5 tons now though. I don’t think I need specs that are better than what the S3 has so all my phones from here out will be based on battery size and screen. Hopefully Moto can step up in the display department.
