Not only this, but phones in themselves are also getting huge and heavy, leaving an impact not just in our wallets, but also in our pant or shirt pockets and purses, with some phablets straight-out uncomfortable to sit with, or even carry around due to their sheer length and width dimensions. Some phone makers, however, have taken notice, and tried to trim the side bezels as much as possible, fitting 5.5" displays in bodies suitable for 5.2" phones, or 5-inchers in a 4.7"-style chassis, for instance.
The undisputed king here is Sharp, whose EDGEST design gets rid of the top bezel almost completely, with the 5.4" Sharp SH-04F reaching the whopping 81% screen-to-body ratio, meaning that the phone is almost as big as a regular 5-incher. Some other major manufacturers, like LG with the G3, or not so major ones, like IUNI with the U3, are also trying to trim their flagships from all sides with great success. That is why we wanted to ask you about the level of importance you place on the screen-to-body ratio when choosing a phone. Take your pick in the poll below, and explain to us in the comments.
