The world's most and least compact flagships relative to their screen size

For this pick, we set out to measure the screen-to-body ratio of pretty much every flagship we could think of, from mainstream brands, down to ones that are still fighting for recognition on the world stage. What's more, we ranked them by just how much 'bang for your inch' you get. A totally new category, we know. So, without any further ado, let us show you the world's most compact flagships relative to their screen size!...

I see that this is updated sometimes, but where's that dang AQUOS Crystal and Crystal X? They should be pretty close to the top of the chart.

The GS6 and GS6 edge are impressive pieces of tech, imagine how compact those phones would be if they didn't have physical buttons. It would be in the 80% area easily all while staying super thin unlike the other thick phones in the 80%. The iPhones, once again, are complete jokes. Hopefully people will finally start demanding more for their money from them.

LG had (don't have anymore) the perfect design with the G2. They should have stopped there and continued to improve the inside of the phone. They didn't. They lost. LG G2 has (mostly) the same size as iPhone 6 but it is 5.2 instead of 4.7. What a huge difference!!

I really wanted Sharp to bring the new Aquos models out of Japan but looks like export only again :(
