Just like i said in the introduction about the Vivo V9. It has the design of the famous iPhone X. With its aluminum alloy body, the smartphone is bezel-less.

With the Moto X4 having a thickness of 8mm while the Vivo V9 measures at 7.9mm. But the Moto X4 is just too heavy at 163 grams compared to the Vivo V9 that is more light and weighs just 150 grams.
