I have attached a screen shot of a design that I am working on. I am not able to decide if the bottom button should be full bleed or if the present version is good enough. Can someone please tell me why once I should go for and why?

enter image description here

Any suggestions with valid reasons are also welcome

  • I think any answer would be mostly a matter of opinion and based on the specifics and context of your implementation.

I would advice against using a full bleed button

Here's why:

  • Snackbar - In android, the snackbar takes up the bottom-most region of the screen to show notifications and pop-up info. A full-bleed would look like that and might confuse the users

Android snackbar

  • Usability - On a handheld device, the bottom area is hard to reach and if you research on most-used UI's you will find out that primary CTA and buttons are usually placed with some padding at the bottom to make them more accessible

Bottom-aligned button with padding

  • Thanks! Makes sense. Will wait for some more answers or reasons
