"The G Series was 2 sheets without the extra glass last year and it does appear that the bezel is on-top of the glass."
Correct, the G bezel is not flush. "Tiny" as posted below yours? Um, whatever. It looks cheap. Of course, so does the silver edging.
There is no difference in HDMI cables. If you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working.
