Best affordable smartphone with (near) edgeless displays

The smartphone industry has just a big steps away from becoming the newest flash-in-the-pan gimmick. Every smartphone launched there is design that sticks the landing and become overnight game changer.

Smartphone innovation comes with a great cost, and that cost has been skyrocketing price for buyers, with Samsung Galaxy Note 8 topping the bunch at an eye-watering of $929 and the latest iPhone X.

Thankfully the expose of edge-less flagships has led to a spate of affordable alternative hitting the market. Some enhanced the kind of flagship-grade specs you would expect from Android’s producers, while others are mid-to-low-end offerings for savvy buyers with a much lighter budget.
