The iPhone X has a smaller effective area of the display than LG V30 and Xiaomi Mi Mix 2
The Apple company presenting its new smartphone iPhone X, has joined other producers, who in recent months has actively released its frameless mobile device.
As we have noted, the word «frameless» in this case is pure marketing that is used to attract attention. So how actually all these smartphones have limits, some more than others.
The Network has already appeared the measurements of the area ratio of the iPhone screen X to the area of the front panel. The result was 81,49%. In this respect it is superior to the announced tribute Mix earlier Xiaomi Mi 2 with result 82,63%. But the leader among these devices is the LG V30, the effective area of the display which is 83,24%.
We should not be surprised that the actual ratio of screen area to the area of the front panel for all of the Apple is substantially less than 90%, because the manufacturer said that even at last year’s Xiaomi Mi Mix this indicator was 91,3%, while the successor, he rose to 93%. But real devices are broader in scope than the computer-generated images, which brags the manufacturer in the course of presentations.
It is also worth adding that the actual effective area available for the iPhone X to interact with the screen even smaller. After all, on two areas on the sides of the system of the front camera are only notifications, but not the content.
The study authors note that to measure the effective area of the displays of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Note8 because of their curved screens is quite difficult.
