In the quote you responded to in your first post the "tragic flaw" was explicitly in reference to the small bezel
"But it's also not quite as comfortable to hold one-handed as the Nook Simple Touch, due to the relatively small side bezel."
The reference to its thinness was in a sentence noting the improvements of the paperwhite over the touch
"The Paperwhite is light and small and a definite improvement over the Kindle Touch in ergonomics."
But as you and booklover6 have already observed, the thinness of the bezel cannot be called a tragic flaw since for many people it's not a problem.
