Which Phone Has The Highest screen-to-body Ratio (Smallest Bezel)?

Now that if any phone manufacturer fails to produce a bezel-less phone, the company may be seen as a set of people with outdated tech. Since high screen-to-body ratio is the order of the day, then which smartphone has the highest screen-to-body ratio? Well don’t just think it’s “iPhone X” because you could be wrong.

A bezel is the frame around the display of a cell phone. In recent times, we have seen the rise of bezel-less phones. In truth, they are not 100% bezel-less, as there is still a frame around the display of all existing phones, but the term “bezel-less” has been adopted to refer to phones with less bezels. The smaller the bezels, the higher the screen-to-body ratio of the phone.

In other words, a smartphone with a higher screen-to-body ratio has more efficient use of space on its front end. There is more screen to use and a narrower frame to hold. Usually, low-end phones have the biggest bezels, meaning that most bezel-less smartphones are high-end. The image below is that of a phone with huge bezels.

We have seen a few cheap bezel-less smartphones though, like the Alcatel 3C, Lenovo k320t, and Panasonic Eluga C.

We bring you a definitive list of some of the smartphones with the highest screen-to-body ratio in first quarter 2018. It is an interesting list!

Smartphones with the highest screen-to-body ratio

Now, starting from the number 5 spot all the way up to the first position where the smartphone with the highest screen-to-body ratio sits. If you are set, I am set.

5. 82.9% screen-to-body ratio

Number 5 on the list is the Apple iPhone X, meaning that there are quite a number of other smartphones with a higher screen-to-body ratio.

4. 83.2% screen-to-body ratio

A number of flagships from 2017 jointly occupy this position and they include Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and LG V30.

3. 83.6% Screen-to-body ratio

Smartphones from Mobile World Congress 2018 dominate this space. They include the Samsung Galaxy S9, Asus Zenfone 5  and Asus Zenfone 5Z . Another phone sharing this spot is the Xiaomi Mi Mix.

2. 84.2% screen-to-body ratio

The newly-announced Samsung Galaxy S9+ has an 84.2% ratio, beating last year’s S8, S8 Plus and Note 8 by small margins.

1. 84.9% screen-to-body ratio

With an 84.9 percent ratio, the Essential Phone boasts of the highest screen-to-body ratio of any smartphone in existence now.

The Essential phone was also the first smartphone with a display notch, which was later popularised by the Apple iPhone X, and is now spreading like wildfire among other smartphones.

It is very likely though that a mobile brand will announce a phone with a higher ratio than the Essential’s 84.9% this year. And then, we will have this list updated. It is a bezel-less world we live in and one day, technology will be advanced enough to give us a 100% screen-to-body ratio.
