We hear it all the time when we post news related to various handsets, particularly those from Sony: “Awesome looking phone. That bezel, though”. The trend these days is to make a display as big as possible, using up just about every inch of space on the front of your phone to do it.

So how much of your phone’s front is actually occupied by the display? A new infographic posted on Twitter by @somospostpc helps solve this question.

As you can see below, the LG G2 leads the pack, with it’s display taking up 75.7% of the screen, followed by the Note 3 with 74.6% screen space. At the bottom of the spectrum are older devices like the Galaxy S with just 55.7% of the space taken by the screen, or the iPhone 3GS with the screen only taking 50.8% of the surface.


The biggest takeaway is that bezels are rapidly shrinking as time passes, particularly in the Android world. We don’t see this trend slowing down any, either. What do you think, how important is bezel-size to you?
