Everyone envies and would like to own a phone like the Galaxy note 8 or the iPhone x but seeing that it would cost you an eye-watering $1000 to get one, not everybody can afford them. here is a list of good bezel-less smartphones you can buy for cheap. some are flagships that have gotten cheaper over time.
LG Stylo 4
If you want a huge smartphone like the galaxy note 8 with room for a pop-out stylus but you can’t shell out a thousand bugs then you might want to consider the very note-like LG Stylo 4. The LG Stylo 4 continues along the same lines as last year’s LG Stylo 3 which is mainly taking all the premium features of Samsung’s Note line and trying to make them much more affordable. The LG Stylo 4 features a similarly sized 6.2-inch display at a 2,160 x 1,080 resolution in an 18:9 ratio, a Snapdragon 450, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage. There’s a 3,300mAh battery, and it ships with Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box. A back placed fingerprint scanner, a 13MP rear camera, and a 5MP selfie-shooter on the front. You’ll also find a headphone jack (nice), a microSD slot, and a USB Type-C port and ofcourse a stylus with nifty functions like Pen Pop, Screen-off Memo, Pen Keeper,GIF Capture, and Pop Lens.
The LG Stylo 4 is available now at Metro PCS for the unbelievably low price of $179, a whopping $60
The LG Q6
Its about a year old but its design still makes it relevant. Its one of the first budget smartphones with the 18:9 aspect ratio. Spec wise its nothing fancy The LG Q6 is packing an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 435, Adreno 505 3Gb RAM, a 5.5-inche fullVision display from the G6’s 5.7-inches. 32 GB of internal storage 3,000 mAh battery
Its built with an aluminum chassis and an impressive 13 MP rear-facing sensor, alongside a 5 MP wide-angle front shooter. The incovinience from the lack of a fingerprint sensor is is watered down with a Face Recognition feature.
The LG Q6 can be picked up in the UK for a respectable £249 ($321).
Sharp Aquos S2
A first look might make you think its an Essential’s PH-1, as the selfie camera spills out from the top frame just like Essential’s. The bottom bezel holds a small logo and home button/fingerprint sensor.
As for the specs, the Aquos S2 comes in two variants, the base model packs a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 630, 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB internal storage (expandable up to 256 GB). That also means it’s priced accordingly, however, with the entry-level model costing just $370.
On sale for around $190, half the price of a Mi Mix 2, it looks like a pretty sweet deal. It delivers a premium bezel-free experience, with only razor-thin sides housing a 1080 x 1920 resolution (376 ppi) IPS LCD display. The only letdown is the sizable chin.
The Chinese branded smartphone is no slouch, its powered by an octa-core Mediatek Helio P25 processor assisted by 4 GB of RAM, and a 4,000 mAh non-removable battery, 13 MP + 5 MP dual camera. 64 GB of on-board storage, microSD expansion up to 256 GB
