Essential Phone vs Samsung Galaxy S8 vs iPhone 7 Plus vs LG G6 and others: size comparison


The Essential Phone has broken cover and it aims at the very top of the hill: the palace atop mountain flagshipia where the Apple iPhones and Samsung Galaxies of the world reside.

It's got the technical chops: the powerful Snapdragon 835 system chip and what looks like a clean, clutter free version of Android. But it's also got something else: an immersive, bezel-less display that takes nearly all of the phone's front, with a bigger screen-to-body ratio than even the Galaxy S8.

This is what allows the Essential Phone to be big, yet feel small. Its 5.71-inch display is not curved also, which some users will appreciate. The display is also taller, narrower, with a 19:10 aspect ratio, similar to the one on the Galaxy S8 and LG G6. So how does the Essential Phone size compare to the size of the S8, the G6, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, the HTC U11, the Google Pixel XL and other phones around? Let's find out!
