As every individual year has a particular impact and trend they introduce to the smartphone scene, the year 2017 wasn’t left out of the norm. This year saw our smartphones go super smart; smarter than we never thought they would be. Also, the smartphone’s aesthetics became super impressive.
One of the contributing features of smartphone beauty was the trimming down (or elimination) of the redundant bezels (read: frame) around our smartphone display, giving our phones sleek looks and likewise, a slim feel.
That’s it! Take note that all the phones we briefly outlined here are manufactured in 2018. Some of them date back to the early parts of 2018, while most of them are released just recently. It tells us just how far the smartphone companies are ready to go in a bid to bring about innovation.
We believe that some other high screen to body ratio smartphones will definitely enter the smartphone market as 2018 comes to an end. We are even anticipating that Vivo will soon make the concept about the 93 percent screen to body ratio smartphone a reality before 2018 is gone.
For now, check out the list above again if one of the most important things you check before buying a mobile phone is the screen to body ratio. Finally, if you have found one or more smartphones that deserve to be in the list above but is absent, please leave a comment below and we will respond.
