LG G Pro 2 to sport 77.2% screen-to-phone-size ratio, thanks to ultra thin side bezel

Turns out that the screen-to-phone-size ratio is the whopping 77.2%, thanks to the almost non-existent 0.4mm thin side bezel, which basically means that at the front this device would likely be all screen. Given that the volume buttons and power/lock key are at the back, the G Pro 2 might turn out to be rather compact for a 5.9-incher.
13 MP rear camera with OIS Plus tech that will minimize video shake and picture blur. The only unknown so far seems to be the battery capacity, which, given LG's recent track record with capacity in their flagships, might turn out to be humongous, utilizing fully the stacked technology that is present in the G Flex.The second edition of the G Pro phablet is expected to feature a Full HD display, Snapdragon 800 processor, and 3 GB of RAM, plus a

Daniel: For some reason, I am having a hard time digesting "phone-to-screen-size ratio" -- shouldn't it be the other way around, the screen to phone ratio, e.g. the amount of screen real estate to the total phone?

YES!! I have been thinking LG is really bad until I saw the G2. I still don't like LG so much but they are improving which will make other brands step up the game too. Hopefully Apple and Samsung in particular but Samsung is really bad.

That beats the Xperia ZL's 75.84% ratio! I bet this "screen-to-phone ratio" or "phone-to-screen ratio" term is going to be common after Sony and LG will be using those more often.

That's a somewhat dubious honor. The bigger a phone's screen is, the better of a chance it will have of having a larger screen to phone ratio. Think about it. Imagine a 4" phone with similarly sized bezels as a 6" phone. The latter will of course have a greater screen to phone ratio.

It boggles my mind how phone companies think releasing products at the speed of light mean market dominance. The phone company who comes up with a device based on well though innovation that has legs to stand the test of time will be the ultimate winner. If you look at APPLE now and a smart watch on the way I think they are on to something. While phone companies blow their brains out releasing anything and everything, there sits the 5s with a smart watch on the way. Will there be a 6? Probably but with companies like LG, Samsung and others out of control I can see Apple doing the blue chip thinking turnaround and making people see the light. I have owned and in many cases still do have many of these top products. What am I using? An Iphone 5. Why? Because I am using it for what it is meant to be used for. Talking, texting and emailing. Anything else......frills. Oh maybe with the exception of Google Earth.
