Why do all these Android phones have a bottom bezel?
There is an evident difference between the iPhone X and other notch-based smartphones - the bottom bezel.
With iPhone X, Apple has used a flexible OLED panel that extends beyond the bottom of the phone and curves around to hold the display controller behind it rather than underneath it.
And this is something other OEMs have failed to achieve, possibly due to production costs.
