Smartphones’ display-size dilemma


We live in world where smartphone display size is important, a window to the online world. The advent of increasingly advanced smartphone display sizes over the last decade helped create a connected world.

We often see the world through our screens on our smartphones. As the displays are the centrepiece of almost all users’ interactions with their smartphones, manufacturers have had to rethink to ensure that the displays are optimized. But different users can demand different things from their displays. So, what are the best displays that maximize consumer satisfaction?

Part of the dilemma has been the question of how to deliver single-handed usability while also providing a large screen. People who prioritize single-handed usability tend to look for smaller phones while those more interested in a more immersive experience will gravitate toward the larger options.

Today’s smartphone market has a wide range of display formats, sizes and shapes with even curved displays becoming increasingly common. Of course there are advantages and drawbacks to each phone size and each user has their own individuals’ preference for design.

To attain the equilibrium LG electronics and other companies have worked hard to thread the needle between these two extremes and create smartphones with large displays that still fit comfortably in the user’s hand to enhance accessibility.

One of the ways that this has been accomplished is by constantly expanding phones’ screen-to-body ratio by increasing the screen-to-bezel ratio. Additionally, LG has pioneered a secondary display so users can check the time and notifications at a glance.
