The curved smartphone screen is not tea that everyone likes. The design features look gorgeous, but they also sacrifice some practicality. However, a new patented design from Huawei seems to be intended to solve these two problems.
The company’s latest document describes a smartphone whose screen covers both edges of the device. There are no buttons. Instead, use a pressure-sensitive system and allow users to control the volume, access other menus, and even read status information.
After the patent has surfaced, we want to evaluate readers’ opinions on the device in a recent poll. This is the result.
What do you think of Huawei’s patented curved display design?
We only saw 3,000 votes in this poll. Considering Huawei’s fall from grace and public interest, this is very remarkable. In other words, the company still seems to be able to produce designs that interest consumers. 65.8% of readers also admitted that they “like” Huawei’s patented curved screen design. Only 34.2% of people “hate” it.

Judging from the comments, people in the “love it” camp appreciate Huawei’s reimagining of design. Others pointed out that, in fact, they do look like regular curved displays. Those who question the design seem to find it difficult to protect the equipment. Not only that, when the display also overlaps the edge of the phone, it may be more fragile.
No matter how you look at it, there are many comments that support and oppose the fully curved display on smartphones. Read some of the different opinions below.
- Miko Saarinen: For me, the most important aspect of the side buttons is their touch. You should know which button you are pressing without looking at your phone. On the other hand, I rarely use a mobile phone without any protective case, so it will be difficult to completely wrap the display in the protective case.
- Drone 9: At least they are pushing the boundaries of things to expand. It’s different from American companies pushing the boundaries of things to eliminate/charge consumers.
- MBII: Who said that the flat screen is the fan’s favorite? I liked the curved display on Motorola Edge until Android 11 made it unusable.
- Teo Harves: How does the phone case work. I always give up mine, so I don’t believe it will suit me.
- B. Nice: This is a nightmare for developers, touch, battery, stability, etc. But it looks pretty cool.
