Galaxy Note is smartphone with best screen-to-body size ratio, S3 follows closely 63 by Adrian Diaconescu on May 25, 2012 1:57 pm 5 Not long ago it seemed like a mobile phone’s most important target was to be as slim, light and portable as possible. But recently, tech users have started changing their views on the market. They now look for phones with the largest and brightest screens, first and foremost. However, a display’s size could be deceiving sometimes, as there are still a multitude of phones featuring large bezels and/or physical buttons and therefore restricting the actual usable space on the screen. That’s why we were relieved to bump into a chart compiled by Reddit user, Thare, who compiled some information on this specific topic. He analyzed the screen-to-body size ratios of some of the best Android smartphones these days. In other words, the graph shows figures that represent how much of the total area of a smartphone’s front side is covered by the actual display. Not surprisingly, the #1 phone ranked in the chart is not exactly a phone, but Samsung’s Galaxy Note phablet. The Note has 66.9% of its body area made out of touch-screen, which might not be impressive at a first glance, but it’s actually a lot better than what many popular smartphones these days have to offer, including the iPhone 4S, Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX or HTC’s One S. Then again, we have to notice that, if the best phone out there (or phablet) only uses a tad over two-thirds of body area for “honorable” purposes, there is clearly room for improvement. It would be difficult to imagine a phone using 100% of its body to display images and videos (unless we’re talking about devices with flexible screens, of course). But we could see it a possibility for the manufacturers to soon come up with gadgets using 80 or 90% of their measurements for solely screen space and usage….
