Slim Smartphone Bezel Infographic

A new infographic posted on Twitter by @somospostpc shows how much screen you’re getting out of current smartphones, with the LG G2 leading the pack. The device, currently LG’s the flagship handset, has a display that takes up 75.7% of the handsets front side, a percentage the company heavily promoted when unveiling the handset. Interestingly, four of the top 10 devices in the infographic belong to LG, including the G2, the G Pro, the Nexus 5, and the Optimus G.

In addition to Android smarpthones, there are also two Windows Phone handsets in the top 10, while iOS devices such as the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5 didn’t even make the top 20.

At the same time, the infographic shows how bezels have been shrinking over the years. By simply following a family of handsets, such as Samsung’s Galaxy S line, one can easily notice how Samsung has increased the display of its flagship handset, while shrinking the bezel – the first Galaxy S display accounted for 55.7% of the phone’s front side, while the Galaxy S4’s screen took up 72.1% of the phone.

In the coming months, multiple device makers are rumored to introduce devices that will have even slimmer bezels, including the Xperia Z2, the LG G Pro 2, the Galaxy S5 and even the iPhone 6.
