Looking for smartphones with highest screen to body ratio? We have maintained a list for you that we keep updating and include the latest devices into it.
Today’s smartphones have experienced revolutionary changes in the last few years as they are now thinner, edgier, and more powerful than ever. Almost all phones have rapidly transitioned to adopt the all-screen or a bezel-less design so much so that as of 2019, any smartphone with thick or traditional bezels is considered to be an outdated device and is labeled unattractive as well as unwanted.
The trend still continues to flourish in 2020 and we can expect people to love and desire these phones with the highest screen to body ratio in 2021 as well.
Although bezel-less smartphones are not the end of design innovation as foldable phones and even holographic displays are making their rounds in the tech world, huge phones with a high screen to body ratio have become one of the most important aspects that influence the buying behavior. Such devices have a distinct attraction that is why smartphone brands around the world are rushing to provide this feature either through a notch, pinhole cutout, or a pop-up camera. To help you chase after a device offering a maximum screen space, we have listed some of the top phones to see which one has the smallest bezels of them all.
Here are the top five smartphones with the highest screen to body ratio and you can also jump to the table at the bottom to see phones ranked from the thinnest to the thickest bezels in different smartphone categories.
1 Huawei Mate 30 Pro
- Screen to body ratio: 94.1%
- Screen Size: 6.47 inches
Huawei Mate 30 Pro and its expensive variant named Huawei Mate 30 RS Porsche Design are blessed with the highest screen to body ratio till date. The stunning device features 6.47 inches of screen accompanied by a relatively smaller teardrop notched at the top which houses the front camera. The phone offers an OLED display with 1080 x 2340 pixels of resolution and 398 pixels per inch (ppi) density which is not as sharp as some other top phones in the market. It also has an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 and an overall 94.1% screen to body ratio.
Apart from a sleek design that offers more screen space, the phone comes with an amazing quad-camera suite, a 4200mAh battery, and the company’s own Kirin 980 chipset based on 7nm technology.
2 Vivo NEX 3S 5G | Vivo NEX 3
- Screen to body ratio: 93.6%
- Screen Size: 6.89 inches
The year 2020 was graced with Vivo Nex 3S 5G smartphone, a new device in the series known for introducing new technologies that often pass down to its mid-range phones. Both Vivo Nex 3 and Nex 3S 5G offer 6.89 inches of screen with 1080 x 2256 pixels of resolution. Here, the company has used the pop-up camera setup to provide more screen space and has featured its latest waterfall display tech where the edges of the screen seem like they are flowing to the sides. We also get a 93.6% screen to body ratio and approximately 363 pixels per inch (ppi) density which is less than what we have seen in Huawei Mate 30 Pro.
The phone is also blessed with outstanding hardware that includes 5G network support, Qualcomm SM8250 Snapdragon 865 chipset based on 7nm technology, a versatile triple camera setup, and a 4500mAh battery among other things.
3 Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra
- Screen to body ratio: 91.7%
- Screen Size: 6.9 inches
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is a big phone that comes with 6.9 inches of OLED display alongside 1440 x 3088 pixels of resolution and a remarkable 496 pixels per inch (ppi) density as well as Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. There is only a small cutout at the top-center of the screen for the front camera and very thin bezels on all sides which provides us with a 91.7% of screen to body ratio. The higher screen resolution may end up consuming more battery life but you can always opt not to use the device with maximum resolution.
As the “ultra” moniker suggests, the phablet packs some powerful specs in the market including Exynos 990 chipset for global and Qualcomm SM8250 Snapdragon 865+ chipset for USA markets. It also comes with a triple camera setup at the back that creates a huge bump, and a 4500mAh battery for the users.
4 Huawei P40 Pro+
- Screen to body ratio: 91.6%
- Screen Size: 6.58 inches
Both Huawei P40 Pro+, similar to Huawei P40 Pro, features a 6.58 inches of OLED display alongside a 1200 x 2640 pixels of resolution which results in 441 pixels per inch (ppi) density. On paper, we can see that it is not the sharpest screen tech of this list but it does offer a 91.6% of screen to body ratio for those people who prefer more screen space and fewer bezels. The only odd thing about the phone is the weird pill-shaped cut out for the selfie camera at the top right corner which ruins the beauty of the phone’s screen.
As for other specs, we get a powerful Kirin 990 5G chipset under the hood, a five-camera setup at the back, and a 4200mAh battery to power-up the smartphone.
5 Samsung Galaxy Note 10+
- Screen to body ratio: 91.0 %
- Screen Size: 6.8 inches
In the fifth position, we have Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ which features 6.8 inches of Dynamic AMOLED that comes with 1440 x 3040 pixels that translate into 498 pixels per inch (ppi) density. Similar to what we saw in Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and many other Samsung’s premium phones, we get a small cut-out for the selfie camera at the top-center of the screen, an edge-to-edge display, and very small bezels on all sides. For people who want more screen space, the company has provided a 91.0% screen to body ratio. To achieve this goal, Samsung had to make small compromises by saying farewell to the IR scanner which was present in Note 9 and Note 8 to provide a face unlock feature.
Other main features of the smartphone include Exynos 9825 chipset for global and Qualcomm SM8150 Snapdragon 855 chipset for the US market. There is also a quad-camera setup at the back and a 4300mAh battery under the hood for power.
