Here is the Apple iPhone X screen-to-body ratio


We've just told you about how the 5.85-inch display on the Apple iPhone X is actually smaller than the 5.5-inch one on the iPhone 8 Plus, and now, we've also calculated the screen-to-body ratio of the tenth anniversary iPhone.

When you take into account the curved edges of the phone, the cutout of the display and the curved edges of the screen itself, you arrive at a screen-to-body ratio of 82% for the iPhone X.

How does this compare to the older iPhones? Well, here is how:

  • iPhone X: 82%
  • iPhone 8: 65.7%
  • iPhone 8 Plus: 68.2%

Disclaimer: Notice that in our specs page, the screen-to-body ratios are slightly different. That's due to the fact that curved edges are not included in those calculations.

Put simply, the iPhone X display takes 16.3 percentage points more of the whole front than the screen on the iPhone 8, and 13.8 percentage points more than the screen of the iPhone 8 Plus.

So there you have it, the iPhone X is indeed a big leap forward in terms of its screen-to-body ratio, and now we now the exact number.
