Xiaomi Mi Mix has achieved what many died trying: a bezel-less display. The front is dominated by an almost perfect edge-to-edge 6.4-inch display and a screen-to-body ratio of 91.3 per cent.

The same material has been used in Apple Watch Series 2 and in a special edition of OnePlus X. The device is just 7.9mm thick and is weighs in just a little overweight at 209 grams.
