Ultimate Screen-to-Body Ratio Comparison (updated)

Please visit the updated post for mid 2016


All major manufacturers but Apple have now released their 2014 flagships so it’s about time to update the ultimate screen-to-body comparison table.
LG continues to be the best at maximising the surface area of a phone. The LG G3 has made it to 2nd position only behind the Alcatel One Touch Hero. Bearing in mind that the Hero is more of a niche device not available globally the G3 really is the global leader. Another 4 LG phones made it into the Top 10. Well done LG!

Let me know if I missed out any phones.

    • Uups, sorry. I have updated the table. It has exactly the same ratio as the Galaxy Nexus 5 with 72.3%.

      Thanks for spotting this!

    • There are quite a number of tablets with telephony capabilities like the ASUS Phonepad, etc. I have left all tablets out of the comparison entirely. They distort the picture as naturally with larger screen sizes the percentages will go up.
      The X1 is a great device though. Hope you are enjoying it.

  1. The Xperia ZL has 75,84%, the LG G2 has 75,7%. And don’t forget the Sharp Aquos Xx 302Sh (80,6% !! Unfortunately only available in Japan)

  2. Pingback: Huawei Honor 6 / more first impressions | 08-08-08
    • I will be updating the list in the coming days and include the T2 Ultra. Thanks for letting me know.

  3. Can you please add numbers from the first one to the last. I just one to make some jokes to my friends iphones etc. Excellent information, is a very important aspect when you want to buy a smartphone in this days. Please add note 4 and new Sony Z3. Thanks again. Wonderful job.

  4. Very useful information to make buying decisions. Thanks. Please note Sharp Aquos Xx 302Sh Has An 80.5% Screen-To-Body-Size Ratio.

    • Thanks. It has the highest ratio indeed. But I won’t be adding it due to it’s limited release in Japan only.
      Thanks for the note.

  5. It should be the Z1, not the Z1 Compact with a 5″ Full HD screen and a 64.6% phone-screen ratio. Keep up the good work!
