I wish samsung would bring in a similar mid tier phone maybe older SD855 or 765G with at least 7.2inch screen with wide aspect ratio of 16:9 not the skinny phones of late, they are just useless especially when you are reading large text that involves continuous scrolling.
A similar sized with Aspect ratio as the Huawei Mate 20x 5G but with at least 5500 Mah battery would be Perfect; I would buy one immediately!
Great phone. Used for 5 years and with the help of custom ROMS, its running Android 10.
those were the fun times. phones were evolving. we are at a much better and stable place in terms of mobile technology but those times were quite fun and engaging.
It's still a big phone in 2020. It is equivalent of 7.5" phone in 20:9 ratio with same width at 3.1"
literally the worst ever big phone by Samsung! not a single Android update or security update was given and the UI is very lag!

We don't see any video with an odd aspect ratio. It's either TV format 16:9 or cinematic 21:9, that's it. No 19:9 or 19.5:9 or 20:9 nonsense.

YouTube and Netflix are laughing at you. Oh btw, ever wondered why laptop screen is still using that so-called "outdated" aspect ratio?
I definitely miss this kind of screen size with a proper 16:9 aspect ratio. It makes watching YouTube so much better than using a screen with tall aspect ratio.
Sean, 27 Sep 2020http://screen-size.info/ Quite a lot, check for yourselfThanks a lot. That website is amazing. I calculated the screen height and width for some of the current phones -
H,W and A stand for Height, Width and Area in Portrait mode.
Google Pixel 4a (5.81” 19.5:9), iPhone 11 (6.1” 19.5:9) OnePlus Nord (6.44” 20:9)
H 5.3 W 2.4 = A 12.72
H 5.5 W 2.6 = A 14.3
H 5.9 W 2.6 = A 15.34
iPhone 8 Plus (5.5” 16:9) and Xperia 1 ii (6.5” 21:9)
H 4.8 W 2.7 = A 12.96
H 6.0 W 2.6 = A 15.6
I watch a lot of 16:9 content and I always thought the Plus variants iPhone 6/6s/7/8 will display it the largest compared to modern phones. But looks like iPhone 11, Nord and Xperia 1 ii all have roughly the same width so 16:9 content should look roughly the same size when not cropped in.
Samsung Galaxy A71 (6.7” 20:9) has
H 6.1 W 2.7 = A 16.47
It matches iPhone 8 Plus width but has a substantial taller screen. Both will show same sized 16:9 content but A71 show bigger content for any other type.
Google Pixel 4a seems the odd one here with a screen that noticeable less wide. In fact it is similar to iPhone SE (2020) width
iPhone SE (4.7” 16:9) and Google Pixel 4a (5.81” 19.5:9)
H 4.1 W 2.3 = A 9.43
H 5.3 W 2.4 = A 12.72
So 16:9 look more or less the same on both.
To me OnePlus Nord looks like has the best balance between screen size and portability.
Wow i remember it clearly..back then when note 2 was release,n out of sudden,there another larger display which is the 6.3 inch..sold my note 2 n go for the mega..n now im back to samsung with Z fold 2..
I had the 5.8 one. It was just a different experience back then. A thing to show off 😂. Recently replaced the battery, and working perfectly till now.
Samsung Galaxy W.
That's the Samsung phone that even gsma has forgotten. 7 inch screen and not a tablet.
I was a proud owner of the Samsung galaxy Mega 5.8! I am a Samsung fan through and through. Has Corby 2 before this.
It was a great phone back in the day. Battery was a bit challenging though.
After this, J7 and then J7 PRO. Then the A8 plus. Now a Note 10 since a year. All brand new phones bought immediately upon their release. However, I must say that somehow I have a feeling that the A8 plus with it's 6" screen resembled my earlier 5.8.

The 16:9 ratio will be obsolete eventually and programs/apps that view and edit documents will inevitably be updated to maximize the new ratio. Time to stop living in the past buddy.

Mage is only 6.3" screen while Note 10+ is 6.8" screen.
You should not miss it because it is better to watch movies and videos with Note 10+!
I loved my mega. Frankly, phones are too small now... even my duo is. They need to start making tru phablets in the 7 inch range. I had no problem with the 7 inch kindles for example. If they made a similar tablet, with phone, and especially if they did a surface duo type pairing of that screen, it would be my ideal 1 stop device
