Smartphones are evolving extremely fast, and every year we come across a new trend that some big brand starts and all the rest of the manufacturers follow. Most of us want a bigger display for an immersive experience, but measuring diagonally doesn’t always tell the size of the display area. So, screen to body ratio is the metric today that gives us a clue about the viewing area the smartphone offers.

Smartphones with the highest screen to body ratio, means, lesser bezels and more screen, and it is all the rage in 2019, and we are expecting a more aggressive approach in 2020.

The year hasn’t closed yet, and phones with 100% screen to body ratios have started to pop up one by one. I don’t say phones with bigger batteries will have lesser importance; indeed, it is one of the most essential requirements before adding a phone to the wishlist, but displays have their own charisma: the bigger, the better experience for games, movies, and photos.

Vivo has claimed a 99.6% screen to body ratio for its latest Nex 3 smartphone with its curved screen, and Xiaomi isn’t behind when it announces more than 100% screen ratio because it also boasts a waterfall display. It looks like an overstatement, but bezels are going to go away somehow, sooner or later.

1- Huawei Mate 30 RS (Porche Design)

  • Screen to body ratio: 94.1%
  • Screen size: 6.53 inches
  • Resolution: 1176 x 2400 px

Huawei Mate 30 RS Porch design is the most expensive version in the latest Mate series Huawei launched without the support of Google. It is a two-sided glass with an aluminum frame in between. The mega smartphone comes with Android 10 and EMUI 10 and to run the show the smartphones come equipped with Huawei’s fastest Octacore chipset so of yet, Kirin 990 that is based on 7nm technology. There is a quad-camera setup on the rear side, whereas, a dual camera can be found on the front for selfies. The phone has a 4500 mAh battery.

Huawei holds the top three spots in this list with second and third being the Mate 30 Pro and Mate 30 respectively.

2- Vivo Nex 3

  • Screen to body ratio: 93.6%
  • Screen size: 6.89 inches
  • Resolution: 1080 x 2256 px

Vivo Nex 3 is the latest flagship phone from the Chinese phone maker that is being marketed as offering 99.6% screen to body ratio, but in our calculations, the screen to body ratio has turned out to be 93.6%.

The phone comes with Android 9.0 and Funtouch 9.1 along with the latest Snapdragon 855+ chipset. It also has a 4500 mAh battery along with the fast charging feature.

3- Samsung Galaxy Note 10+

  • Screen to body ratio: 91.0%
  • Screen size: 6.8 inches
  • Resolution: 1440 x 3040 px

The third brand in our list is Samsung that is here with Galaxy Note 10+. Like Mate 30 Pro, it is also the glass on the front and back while an aluminum frame keeps them apart. In addition to Android 9.0 and One UI, the flagship phone has a Snapdragon 855 under the hood.

There is a quad-camera on its back (12MP+12MP+16MP+TOF 3D VGA sensors) and a single lens of 10MP on the front for selfies. A 4300 mAh battery powers the phone that comes with fast charging capability.

Let’s have a look at all the other phones having the highest screen to body ratio.

  1. Decent information. A five to 7 inch phone is I think enough for me. I wonder if there is a ten inch phone out there. Even if there isn’t one yet , i wonder how we gonna place it in our pockets after all we mostly keep our phones in pockets?
