I don't mind the tall screens. But stupid phone manufacturers put notches on phones and claim higher aspect ratios which I absolutely hate.
To me, rectangular tall aspect ratio > 16:9 >>>>>>>>>>>>>> anything with notch. Since tall aspect ratios without notches are becoming hard to find, I voted for 16:9
What phone is it in the bottom left of the 5th picture where all the phones are displaying settings?
I like its screen calibration
It all boils down to what you use your device for.
Social/work/browsing = 18:9
Games/movies/videos = 16:9
Don’t expect movies and games to suddenly get out of 16:9. Not happening anytime soon.
We would have to change the TV before the phone. TVs will never change to adapt to “phones”, it’s the other way around.
The only thing tall screens are good at is displaying messages (and you can keep every single one of those thankyouverymuch). No sane website fits readably in portrait mode and as soon as you turn to landscape you're left with all of three rows of text on your suddenly mega-wide but ultra-short screen. Screw that crap! Even 4:3 screens were better at this. How about you try making some 18:9 format paper, see how well it sells...?!?
I choose 18:9 or even taller ratio. My hobby is playing piano so I can stretch my fingers and thumb all the time, it is really a good design and I really like it!
16:9 all the way... lg, huawei and nokia proved that we can have 16:9 screen with full vision.
18:9 is total bs.
As long as it doesn't have a NOtch, I don't really care about the display ratio.
Add a NOtch and I'm never going to get one.. Bleah!
I'd rather have full bezels than that..
Luxor, 03 Jun 2018From my perspective the elongated screen appear much better than a 16:9 phone that had gone be... more18:9 standard becoming norm? but most device (TV, monitor, projector, movie projector) other than a phone are still mostly 16:9 or 21:9... and i never heard that a 18:9 had becoming a standard though
In Australia the tall skinny screens are not selling that well.
There are not too many people out there getting the tall skinny phones with edge to edge screens and are more likely to break easier.
We have not upgrades our Samsungs and dont plan to - not a fan of the 18:9 - not an upgrade.
xXENDER FREAKXx, 03 Jun 201818:9, 18.5:9, 19:9, different aspect ratios a thing now after sticking to the 16:9 aspect rati... moreUmm no, it's not like only because the smartphone display movement to 2:1, most media industry would move into it too. It's not at that simple.
Anonymous, 03 Jun 201818:9, 18,5:9 and 19:9 are just ways to provide less screen. Cut costs... 18:9 is about 1... moreless screen? but my fingers are on pain to reach the top...shorter than 16:9, like the oldschool 4:3 or 5:4 are better, giving shorter size in the same width...
Seriously, but what's future on 18:9?
It's not like those display manufacture couldn't make a longer than it. Oh, if you said it's a future, then what about the 21:9 LG BL40, released about 9 yrs ago?
16:9 because it's standard, does no problem, and calling 18:9 a future is more like calling the removing of 3.5mm jack is a future too. Sad.
Samsung and LG created this 18:9 small footprint and narrow screens, and the rest of the herd followed them like a bunch of freaked-out buffalos. And we customers suffer half-baked screens proportions in post-2016 pricy flagships devices PLUS the notch thingy. Double Whammy.
