Says who? Who even demanded super tall phones in the first place? Many would say that tall phones just look awkward and weird and aren't adapted to 16:9 content like videos. But yet this reviewer says that ANY phone that isn't tall looks dated.That said, the Samsung Galaxy S8 has made it so that any phone without a super-wide display looks dated. The U11's side bezels are slim enough, but there's a good deal of "not-screen" space on the top and bottom. It's still attractive, but mostly by yesterday's standards.
Again, says who? How many smartphone users really said "oh, I'm so tired of hardware buttons, I wish my phone had software buttons instead".
