Anyway, Nokia has a 3.14% market share in its home country Finland, so I don't see where you're coming from?

There are stuff that is needed for the panel to function and they are placed on the bottom side of the phone. some manufacturers try to make the bezel as small as possible by bending the end of the panel and hiding it behind the components, effectively shrinking the bottom bezel.
