Consistency is important so that we do not waste precious resources creating and solving unnecessary compatibility issues. Stick to the KISS principle.
16:9 was cool until the on-screen buttons came. 18:9 gave us our screen estate back.
Between 16:9 with physical buttons and 18:9 with on-screen buttons I'll choose the former. But 16:9 with on-screen buttons is garbage, and it's luckily dying.
Oh, and 18:9 lets us have more screen estate with the same width, which is cool.
social media apps pushed tall screens.. contents are vertical.. u scroll up and down..
xyrotic, 04 Jun 2018First of all the "more screen estate " is wrong . 16:9 giving more screen area than 19:8 obvio... moreCongrats, you just invented new screen ratio 19:8,
which even narrower than modern 18:9 Lol
I'm fine with either. Taller screen ratio is alright AS LONG AS THERE IS NO NOTCH, because the notch is deceptive, making it appear that the screen is bigger but in reality the actual usable area is smaller.
First of all the "more screen estate " is wrong . 16:9 giving more screen area than 19:8 obviously . When the height is same obviously 16:9 give more screen area than 19:8 .

Some people just have no clue what they're talking about yet they yap on about it. How sad.
Anonymous, 03 Jun 2018Its funny that people who never used 18:9 or taller devices are saying they suck. I thought ch... moreI use Samsung note 8 & s8+ that I think has 18:9 ratio, before this phones I use to have Huawei Mate 9 that the screen I believed is 16:9, I preferred this 16;9 ratio instead of my Samsung phones that is so tall/ long. I wish that Samsung make flat screen again like note 4 size.

Sherlock Mix, 04 Jun 2018The only ratio it makes sense is 16:9.
EVERY media you would play ... moreTrue.
It takes time for developers to adapt this ratio, especially that other companies going 19:9 ration or higher!
Videos for mainstream consumption are still being shot, played back, and distributed in 16:9 format. Because it makes the most sense.
Why reinvent the wheel?
Its a matter of simple preference, both ratios can coexist as long as content for the two are created, seeing where marketing is going, its not crazy to think that little by little 18:9 content is gonna be more widespread since all flagships and midrangers are getting there.
Gauri, 03 Jun 2018Nokia 8 sirroco beats all phones in terms of ergonomics , that's how 16:9 smartphones with waf... moreYep 16:9 with small besels. When content will get wider than that, the situation change but at this moment most content is still 16:9...
The only ratio it makes sense is 16:9.
EVERY media you would play at any TV or Monitor.
Everything runs at 16:9.
If you change the ratio, it will appear black bars when you reproduce content, or the video will appear stretched and horrible.
18:9 and higher are just a gimmick for common phone apps, like apps used for work, calendar, camera, tasklist, bank etc. If you want MEDIA content like games, movies or videos, it's a huge step backward.
Much more content is available in 16:9 than in 18:9. TVs have not switched to a wider aspect ratio, and I don't see it happening because of the horizontal space constraints in a typical living room. Therefore, it is unlikely that 18:9 will become a more popular format.
Meanwhile, to achieve an equivalent viewing area for 16:9 content, >= 18:9 phones become excessively tall, making them difficult to fit in pockets. Also, any wasted or unnecessary vertical space is just using up battery life for little benefit.
This is a classic move by manufacturers of commoditised products to convince consumers
to buy new phones. It is truly incredible to see how new 16:9 phones are so rarely released so shortly after the adventure of 18.9 phones, much too short a time to establish consumer acceptance.
The industry is ex growth, and just milking people at this point in a classic example of an uncoordinated cartel driven by mimicry, parallel price rises, and planned obsolescence through non-removable batteries, the lack of repairability of phones, and the appalling absence of security updates after a product has been released.
Anonymous, 03 Jun 2018QHD is useless.. 1) you find TVs with resolutions HD, Full and UHD. There is no QHD tv. ... morethere used to be many QHD and WQHD TVs, that is until UHD came in late 2016 and every QHD TVs lineup were changed to UHD TVs. while there is only a few content that was exported in QHD format (at most was 2015, but drop significantly in 2016), the extra pixel are still a benefits due to supersampling technology. to be honest, at that screen size (7inch and less), most can't differentiate between UHD, QHD, and FHD, but the difference between FHD and QHD were night and day in VR.
stfup!!! tall phones are better than wide phones!!! go 20:9 trols wont shut up!

1) there is a cable involved, cant be wireless. Unless the base has inner battery and cable is used just to charge the base.
2) it is slower than Qualcomm's QC 2.0. The QC 4.0 is available since SD835.
3) temperature of the device is higher compared to usb.
4) you are not able to do a lot while phone is charging.
5) it will decrease whole life of battery. Less cycles.
Anonymous, 03 Jun 2018There are a lot of noobs who resist change. The very people here that think 18:9 displays are... moreQHD is useless..
1) you find TVs with resolutions HD, Full and UHD. There is no QHD tv.
2) no content is recorded in QHD. What you watch QHD is made 4K but your screen cant play 4K.
3) Difference between UHD and QHD is more than QHD/FullHD
4) android apps dont run 1440p , unless the dev gives support. Sony gives 4K support for their 4K phones, but 3rd part apps still remain 1080p or less. 99% of apps run 1080p/720p on QHD phones.
5) Most phones use QHD because the oled pentile. Which is as sharp as a 1080p rgb screen. Blame on who sell the screens. LG and HTC are just wastimg time with QHD LCD.
