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.
You are incorrectly combining the text from the review I quoted and my actual comments. That is a no no. I used the phrase "ridiculously thin and small" to show what I was referring to.
