Edge-to-edge displays eliminate the side bezels and minimize the top and bottom ones.Now, the user has a bigger screen area, including the edges.
Smartphone makers have been trying for a long time to make the smartphone screen more usable for consumers. Recently, LG endowed its G6 smartphone with an 18:9 screen ratioQHD+ display, which has been called a near edge-to-edge display since it minimizes but doesnt totally eliminate the side bezels.
