And we thought those glowing things in star wars, supposedly to be futuristic weapons, were light sabers, when if fact - those were just gloving displays of the future phones

Luxor, 16 Oct 2019Does that mean status bar and camera getting larger? Is that why... moreBigger screen. You can't grow it width, as one hand can't even hold it. So no choice, height is the way to go.

Does that mean status bar and camera getting larger? Is that why they purposely making it taller?

You may argue with me, but 16:9 was the best screen to body ratio usability wise. Otherwise 2:1 is also fine but anything taller is not good.

Most notched screen phones 1 or 2 years ago used 19:9 ratio screen. So, samsung using 20:9 screen is nothing new.

The original Mi Mix was the best in this regard.

ProMaster96, 16 Oct 2019People talked bad when Sony introduced the first phone with 21:9... moreBut television industry is still using 16:9 format to this day. Agreed that 21:9 is movie industry standard. 4:3 is so pre-Y2K, I see aboslutely no reason for such ratio to make a comeback.

People talked bad when Sony introduced the first phone with 21:9. Stupid, too tall, too narrow, they don't even realize when phone makers start increasing the ratio bit by bit, 18:9, 19:9, now we're gonna have 20:9. The 21:9 will be a thing eventually, its already as movie industry standard anyway.

GAMIRSFM, 16 Oct 2019Why not use 21:9, that is a more common aspect ratio.Because the ones that hate on Sony 21:9 would need new accounts to praise 21:9 on Samsung.

Samsung is being generous to them.

Of course it will be praise, despite being another useless ratio like 18:9, 18,5:9, 19:9 and 20:9.

16:9 and 21:9 are useful, 4:3 acceptable

Why not use 21:9, that is a more common aspect ratio.
