LG G6 has an EXCEPTIONAL screen-to-body ratio: here's a size comparison vs Galaxy S7 edge, Pixel XL, iPhone 7 Plus, LG G5, V20


After tons of teasing, rumors, and a few leaks, LG has finally unwrapped its 2017 flagship smartphone — the long-anticipated G6. Imbued with the hopes to reimburse G5's shaken market positions due to the lackluster G5, the G6 is a phone that drops all the controversial gimmicks in favor of all the essentialities that make a good device. 

It has a flashy new design with rather high screen-to-body size ratio, full metal build, and the good ol' dual setup that's already beginning to qualify as a signature feature of LG's top-end phones, the G6 seems like it's employing the winning formula. 


In terms of size, the G6 measures at 148.9 x 71.9 x 7.9mm, which is exceptional for a device with a 5.7-inch display. This works out a screen-to-body ratio of roughly 78.37%, which is rather good. To put things in perspective, we've decided to compare this one with the 5.3-inch LG G5, which stands at 149.4mm and is actually taller than the G6, the 5.7-inch LG V20 which towers the latter at 159.7mm, and a couple of other hot devices while we're at it!

You have a title like that, and then don't even tell us what the Screen to Body Ratio is...

Was wondering the same thing as I was surprised it has a smaller body than the 5.5" s7 edge #Impressive

Nothing exceptional, ZUK Edge has the same screen/body ratio and specs and they managed to keep the fingerprint reader at the front. I remember Xperia ZL was one of the first smartphones to cut top and bottom bezels for more compacity. I like the rounded display though but the 18:9 ratio means that it'll be impossible to reach the top of the display with your thumb.

The S7edge has still the best screen to body ration for a phone with a 5,5", 16:9 display with a home button. The G6 has a narrower 18:9 display, no homebutton, a smaller battery and only has a slightly better screen to body ratio.
